The Circle~rldubour (rictameter)


 

 

The Circle

The trail of life can be
A heavy load.
When I reach my end
I’ll pay what I owed.

Each path has a price
They all have their dues.
My balance unknown
What will God excuse?

I know what I did
I’m sure I will owe.
I will have to pay
How much? I don’t know.

Circle
It’s true I know
Whatever my choice was
Is now the harvest I will sow
Standing beside me~~ twelve angels from earth
Taking my soul, giving it mirth
As it was at my birth
Have now come full
circle

I’ll stand before God
And He will judge me.
And nobody else
I know this to be.

The circle of life
Will then be complete.
And it will be filled
I pray with replete.

I hope I have time
To say my good-bye.
God will be waiting
There’s no need to cry.

  1. Ron, can i please cut/copy this? It’s sound so close to Don’t Cry when you break it down to syllables. I want to give this to one of the Facebook Groups i’m in

    • Yes you may copy, glad you enjoyed, Ron

  2. Ron, I’m putting a copyright on your poem because i plan to print the 259 page document of my poems and my partner’s. I wanted to have yours as an added one because it talks about our subject, very slightly.

  3. Thanks, Ron, for letting me put your poem in our collection. It reminded me of “Don’t Cry”, a song by Metallica, AND it fits well into our collection
