With permission, this beautiful poem, “Facing Death” is posted for you to embrace. I felt it aligned with my article In My Eleventh Hour: “I Wish I’d Had More Courage.”
By Joyce Rupp
O ETERNAL LOVE,
it will soon be time to return home to you.
My soul is ripening for its final journey
as my body lessens in vibrancy and vitality.
I bring you my fears, doubts and concerns.
Help me to resolve any difficulties
that keep me from being at peace.
Comfort me when I feel the sadness
of leaving my loved ones behind.
Encourage me to surrender myself
into your safe and welcoming hands.
Help me to leave this life without regrets.
Thank you for all you have given me
during my sojourn here on earth.
Be with me now as I prepare to depart.
Bring me home. Bring me Home.
