Get Up Son

Lord I want to die 
in my sleep 
I want to go to bed 
and be awakened 
by you 
Get up son 
it's the first day of school 
the beginning of your new job 
the dawn of eternity. 
Here are your clothes. 
Your older brother 
wore them first 
now they're yours 
white and fresh and clean 
smelling of heaven.

(from Joseph Bayly's Psalms of My Life; sponsored link)
