Here is a poem I wrote last night. It’s called “your time”
Sometimes it seems
nothing can go wrong,
You have everything for that
you could ever long
Then one day your world
turns upside down,
That smile that you had
quickly turns into a frown.
You say theres no way that diagnosis
could be true,
You search for more opinions till
your face turns blue.
You tell yourself the worst has already come,
theres only up to go,
You keep that attitude,
until something stops the show.
You scream to God, the timing isnt right!!
It wasnt supposed to happen, no not tonight.
Your worry turns to anger,
your anger turns to fear.
You realize there will never be
another spoken word, nor another breath.
That he is surely gone,
swept up and taken by death.
You look up in the heavens,
up into the sky,
You ask the Lord for help,
ask Him to reply.
It might seem that God doesnt even hear,
But this is why he gave us one mouth, and two ears.
Lord help me understand that my time is Yours,
not the other way around.
Remember that Gods plans may not be our plans,
but His plans are always right for man.
Trust in the Lord, he will carry you,
give you wings like angels to help you get through.
Today is not tomorrow,
soon it will be yesterday.
So keep your faith strong
because each day is a new day.
When all is said and done,
and its time for us to go,
I’ll look into my heavenly fathers eyes,
and say, Dad, I’m so glad to be home.
