If I die before I wake

If I die before I wake

as I rest my head on my angels lap

If I Die Before I Wake

we as children of christian faith all know this passage

knees bent at your bed before sleep

as I sit with my morning tea in my graying years

my thoughts drift as the winters snow to places long forgotten

asking myself between sips was I a good man a loving man

if my angel came to me today was I ready

was I really ready


days later driving yet again to work my thoughts came flooding back

if I die before I wake

who would care for my beagle Parker and cat Bailey

would my neighbor or close friend find me in bed

was my house clean and picked up

how would my last family members hear of my passing

then my heart skipped a beat then another

my soul mate so far away in that exotic land

home of the grand Hogenakkai Falls

would our pledge our bonded oath hold true


as I go to sleep this night I close my eyes and ask for my angel

please do not take me my first love for I have more to do

more to complete yes I have more to live for

blessing my angel she smiles on this poor soul her lost soul

as she ascend to heaven calling to me

love her hold her respect her for I shall watch over you both

your soul mate I shall keep her safe for I am her angel too

sleep rest for you have more to do

your journey is not complete


waking with a smile and a warm feeling in my heart and soul

morning tea and off to work yet another day again

knowing all is well but I have work to do

bless my angel

bless my new found love

bless my soul mate

and bless myself
