Close The Gate

For this one farmer the worries are over, lie down

and rest your head,

Your time has been and struggles enough, put the

tractor in the shed.

Years were not easy, many downright hard, but

your faith in God transcended,

Put away your tools and sleep in peace. The fences

have all been mended.

You raised a fine family, worked the land well and

always followed the Sun,

Hang up your shovel inside of the barn; your work

here on earth is done.

The sun is setting, the cattle are all bedded, and

here now is the end of your day.

Your love of the soil has passed on to your kin; the

stories flow like fine wine,

Wash off your work boots in the puddle left by

blessed rain one final time.

You always believed that the good Lord would

provide and He always had somehow,

Take off your gloves and put them down, no more

sweat and worry for you now.

Your labor is done, your home now is heaven; no

more must you wait,

Your legacy lives on, your love of the land, and we

will close the gate.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
How do you know James Lee Waldock?
We are sorry for your loss.
Help others honor James's memory.
