Newark, NJ

The years seemed to go by so swiftly and I only wish I had taken more time to see the beauty of all the gifts and blessings that were right in front of me. I was a solo child and knew not my earthly father. But my mother Gwendolyn Moore gave me all the love she had in her. Three children I fathered that could have been a comfort cloth around me. So thankful that my youngest had mercy on me in my final years. As I realized the years going by I thought that I was in control of all there was pertaining to me, but that was not the case. Took too much for granted. God always saw me and knew what I did not. He even helped me and at times gave me what I didn't deserve. For anyone that I have wronged while here on earth, I pray that you can forgive me, for I was a lost little boy that soon grew old. I looked up and saw that my face was not the same and I realized that my own deeds and habits were to blame. As I lay here and see myself fading I say my final goodnight. I shall miss some of the things from this world but Gods eternity is so much better than this one. I pray that he sees me, that he hears me, that I might be whole again. For now so long to this place I once called home, I must now quietly go away on my own.
