Sing Once More For Me


She sits all alone
Her eyes appear vacant
She reacts to no one
Her mind seems distant

Life has been long
Health issues malicious
A bed and a wheelchair
She won't long be with us

But then a merry soul
Paid a visit one day
And sang an old hymn
As old Clara lay

Clara's eyes came in focus
And the tears filled and fell
And she joined in the song
A joyful praise from soulís well

The nurses canít believe
The song they are hearing
She has uttered no words
For a year or so nearing

A brilliant smile remains
Lingering after the song
Her mind fixed on Jesus
Sheíll see His face before long

While her body seems useless
Her soul still communes
She holds loosely to life
Waiting for one final boon

And it comes in the end
Despite expressions of sorrow
Her soul has found rest
With no earthly tomorrow

Eternity with Jesus
Following her longest night
Her body is whole
Her spirit is light

"I knew You would come."
She says with a smile
"I waited and remembered
And You came after awhile."

"True, dear daughter,
Itís you Iíve been waiting to see.
I heard your sweet voice,
Now daughter, sing once more for Me."
