"Forever"

"Forever"

The time is near

So very near

For us to quickly disappear

To leave behind each heartfelt tear

To separate from sorrow

Hate and fear

Unto the loving embrace of a perfect tomorrow

 

The day draws nigh

For us to sigh

The blest relief

Of why we suffered our belief

Against the grain of this world's doubt

And shame

When Jesus came

To pull us out

And catch us up

To the kingdom of heaven

Forever

I love this one Johnny! I do like how you say, "of why we suffered our belief", as I do at times see that view; while at other times my faith is all that pulls me through!

Hi Charlie: forgive me for taking so long to respond to your comments on "Forever," "Lamps," and "Straight To Hell." I never got a notification from the site that I had received anything. Been busy with other site exploration and posting. I will do my best and make it my habit to check in more often from now on. It warms my heart to know your spirit has resonated with what my writings convey. When we come right down to it, our faith is really all we have to depend on in this world. Will be be checking out your page to see if you have posted anything new. Blessings to you, John.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
