My Account Was Settled
My debits and credits are entered.
My double lines have been drawn.
My balance sheet is all totaled out.
It was time that I have traveled on.
Keeping books was for me a pleasure.
I was thankful for each wonderful task.
Each boss to me was a blessing.
As I shared, “What more could I ask?”
I recorded each item on my ledgers
With neat writing I accurately penned.
Then I placed my ledgers away
For a future entry, my friend.
I love you all so dearly.
Be kind, love family, honor God.
Please keep your life in check;
Have no bitterness or facade.
Thank you for your visits,
beautiful flowers and each card.
I had peace with God and was ready.
Yet, our final good-byes are hard.
I pray you will be ready
When at last your time will be.
Believe in Jesus; have the peace I had.
Then you, with me, our Jesus will see.
