AS BEFORE – NO MORE

I prayed for a glimpse of Heaven last night

Just the faintest sensation came.

Saw no pearly gates, little enough to

Awakened, feeling little change!

.

.

As before I had asked for a glimpse, that is all I got!

Just enough to renew

That intense longing that will stay!

At 93 what else to do?

.

.

Sure, no substantial memories remain

Of loved ones, long-long ago.

No feelings of any energy spent

Or thoughts that I can show!

.

.

But that sense of well being persists

Like bright Angels hovering near!

No, I did not see them around

Just feelings, not to appear!

.

.

But very real that sense contained

Like glimpses never had before.

Feelings never quite, felt until then,

Like, final arrival at shore.

.

.

Also, like accomplished at last!

Final!  The race is won!

Sure, I have won many races, times past

But this when day is done.

.

.

One race remembered, basic training

Our Sarge had never lost before!

I beat him, like, lunging over the line

I felt sorry for him!  No score!

.

.

Intensity!  Sure determination

I had never lost, but this

It was determination that won it

I won it but surely no bliss!

.

.

Accomplishment but no joy to recall!

Like, get this over with now!

93 years sure, the end is near!

What more to allow?

.

.

As I can see it, the final race

Has naught to do with well being

But total dependence on Jesus Christ!

Helpless in self!  The last feeling!

.

.

No more!
