A Poem


Before I die,

I will set a good footprint

On the sand of time

For the young ones to see.


Before I die,

I will reach the unreached,

With words of life,

And strengthen the weak.


Before I die,

I will labour on earth, for the reward above

In heaven beyond the tide 

I will prepare my life to join the choir above.


Before I die,

I will let my soul to be filled with love;

As the days passes bye,

I will give for my mansion above.


Before I die,

I pray for grace to conquer sin;

I pray to die,

After fulfilling God's will.


Before I die,

I will fight the world

And all its forms

Holy Spirit be my guide


Before I die,

I will invest my life time

In doing His will

Because the longer I serve Him

The sweeter He be.
