Peace Shall Reign Upon Me

by Tracy R. Offer

Life should not be taken lightly
For we know not the time, the day, the hour
The minute, nor the second

Many of you are here wondering
How could such an incident happen
To a person such as myself

For we know not the path that has been laid for us
However, it is all in how we deal with the matter at hand

At this time, I ask each and every one of you
Not to prolong your sorrows for me
The love, tenderness, and affection given 
Is greatly appreciated
But time waits for no one
Time is to be used wisely and not to be
Taken for granted

If I should leave your presence this very day
Keep in mind the memories shared
Keep in your heart the love given
My soul has been laid to rest
I am in a place where nothing but
Peace will reign upon me

I would also like to take this time
To ask forgiveness
To any of you that I may have harmed
By the words I spoke, or the thoughts in my mind
For no one is perfect and love should surely 
Overpower all

Love is too often taken for granted
If I should survive
Take heed and know that
God is a God of second chances
I have been given a new start
To get it right
No matter the outcome 
Trust God and know that
It is His will
I Peter 4:19
