Journey's End


REST YOUR HEAD, MY WEARY TRAVELLER

THIS EARTHLY JOURNEY IS AT END

SAY GOODBYE TO THOSE WHO’LL MOURN YOU

AQUAINTANCE, FAMILY, FRIEND


STEADFAST WIFE AND NOBLE MOTHER

ALL YOUR DUTIES ARE COMPLETE

YOUR REWARD A NEW ADVENTURE

TAKE THIS GIFT AND BE AT PEACE


LEAVE BEHIND THE TEARS OF LOVED ONES

LAY YOUR HEAVY BURDEN DOWN

CAST ASIDE YOUR WORN OUT BODY

PAIN AND SUFFERING NOW BEGONE


JUST AHEAD SOMEONE IS WAITING

WHO HAS PASSED THROUGH HEAVEN’S DOOR

ANTICIPATING YOUR ARRIVAL

A CELEBRATION IS IN STORE


PREPARE TO STEP BEYOND THE CURTAIN

SEPARATING LIFE FROM DEATH

ANSWERS TO ALL OF LIFE’S MYSTERIES

THIS AND MORE YOU SHALL POSSESS


THOUGHTS OF YOU WILL BRING US COMFORT

YOU’RE IN OUR HEARTS, YOU ARE NOT GONE

AND IN OUR TIME WE’LL COME TO JOIN YOU

ONE LAST FAREWELL AND JOURNEY ON

Thank you for using my poem
by: Sharon Catley

Your comments are all so kind and my Mother would be proud that you liked the poem I wrote for her. I read it to her while she was in hospice and with tears in her eyes she said that no-one had ever written her a poem before. If anyone needs to use it for a friend I suggest changing the line "Steadfast wife and noble Mother" to "Steadfast friend and Noble spirit" or for a father "Steadfast husband, Noble Father" These are just suggestions and please feel free to change it in any way that it may better suit the occasion - I will not mind. Once again Thank you
