GOD’S LOVE BANDS

Dear Jesus, You died to forgive but You live!

To take me up there!

I will never quite understand such love

But gladly accept so fair!

.

.

I am selfish, I know, but admittedly

Of course, that I am!

Eat my food, though I am hungry or not!

And gasp for breath as I can!

.

.

Avoiding the grave a large part of life!

Especially when you are 93!

While I used to look out for the other guy

Now I care more for the me!

.

.

Gasping for breath realization comes

The preciousness of this life!

Now I am praying, “Lord, take me home!”

Avoiding all of life’s strife!

.

.

Now remembering when shrapnel whistled

About my helmeted head!

Like, almost wishing for some to dig in

Sure, wishing I was dead!

.

.

Reckon a death wish sure had to be!

When I waved that grenade

In plainest view of the enemy!

Down there in the shade!

.

.

Of course they could see me!  But why

Suppose they waited

For night when they could get us all!

With that grenade I had planted!

.

.

Just a stupid trick!  I stayed awake

Sure, then I heard them come

To get that grenade and sure I had another!

Threw it!  It was done!

.

.

Of course a suicidal kid!  And

No, I have – no, I have no regrets!

It was war, supposed to be done!

‘Old one’ now Heaven gets–

.

.

This Scout!  Dear God, am I ready?

Blood all washed from my hands

Dying soon with Heaven my home!

Because of His love bands!

.
