If I Go Before You--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

If I Go Before You

Sunlight of life fades quickly
its shadows crowd our path,
and into the glorious light
of God we gently step.
For each, His pattern is set;
so, should I go before you,
no tears, my dear friend.
Remember only the happy
times we shared

John W. (Bill) Williams is a retired language arts and children’s literature educator.  He lives in Martin, GA, where he stays busy with his art and poetry.  He has been published in a variety of venues.


  1. John,
    I am not worried if you go before me, dear friend, because I know we'll find each other again once I go to Haven.
    Your friend always,
