It will last forever, won’t it?

15 Jun

Our love
it will last forever
won’t it?

I wanted my last job
to last forever.
It was my best job.
Paid well
I really
liked my friends.
That job was suppose
to last forever
wasn’t it?

Being healthy
with no illness
and no disease
no cancer
no heart attack
no stroke.
My health was suppose
to last forever
wasn’t it?

My youth and energy
was suppose
to last forever
wasn’t it?

I am quoting a song by Anna Bartlett Warner:
Jesus loves me
yes I know
for the Bible tells me so
little ones to him belong
they are weak
but he is strong.

I am quoting a message by Brennan Manning:
God will ask
did you believe
that I
loved you?
That I desired you?
That I waited
for you day after day?
That I wanted to hear
the sound of your voice?

The Holy Bible
tells me to believe
in Jesus Christ
and invite Him
into my heart and life —
I did that.

Back to my poem:

I believe
in that song.
I believe
in that message.

I will live forever
after I die
won’t I?

Sand Castles

6 Jun

If you are
on the beach
when the sun
is going down

you will probably
see me
walking
looking at
deserted sand castles.

if you smile
I’ll buy you
dinner
and we’ll talk.

Color Photo

I will mentally photograph
this moment.

Soon it will be over
but I will constantly
recall this photo

and study
every detail.

Mood Swings

6 Jun

Some days
I feel so certain
of myself.

Today I feel
I must change.

I spoke to someone
who just kept walking.

I need someone
to tell me
I’m okay.

Dancing

6 Jun

Do you remember
dancing
on the beach
where
eyes
and
feelings spoke?

That night
became a snapshot
I look at
often.

Years passed.
Do you remember
dancing?
