Dear God, Just another day






Dear God,
how old will i be,
when the angel in black will come for me??

What will he say,
when i ask for one more day?
Just another day...
Just another day...?

My life, my love,
sitting beside,
face wrung out in tears
that she can't bear to hide.

Another moment i'll ask,
and none left to live.
I'll beg and plead,
for another moment to give.

Dear God,
how old will i be,
when the angel in black will come for me??

What will he say,
when i ask for one more day?
Just another day...
Just another day...

My son so old now,
walking away,
ball glove in hand,
but with no one to play.

Growing up sooner,
than he deserves.
The leader of the house now,
with three mouths to serve.

Dear God,
how old will i be,
when the angel in black will come for me??

What will he say,
when i ask for one more day?
Just another day...
Just another day...

Those pretty young girls,
the pride of our lives.
When will I see the day,
they become somebody's wives??

No grand-babies to hold,
when my time has come.
No faces to compare,
for i wont be there.

All the things i regret,
i haven't done,
with my girls, my wife
and my handsome son.

The time wasted
and lost on all those shows...

When the angel comes...
When the angel comes...

Dear God,
how old will i be,
when the angel in black will come for me??

What will he say,
when i ask for one more day?
Just another day...
Just another day...

Dear God,
how old will i be,
when the angel in black will come for me??

What will he say,
when i ask for one more day?
Just another day...
Just another day...

[Dawud Wharnsby Ali - Just Another Day]

A song for the living, sincere forgiveness beforehand ...
before my deathbed


sincerely,

This has always been a good reminder for 'the time' to come.

They say when you see a funeral, it only makes sense to remind yourself that one day it is going to be yours too.

Make haste in good deeds, while there is still time. Say the Shahadaah, offer your Salaah, pay your Zakaat, make up for your missed Fasts & Ibaadah etc. Pick up the Qur'an, and read what your creator wants to you to know.

JazakAllah.
