REMEMBERING

Sure, it is all he said, “Remember Me,”

And Jesus answered, “This day…”

But is that all,  those simple words?

No, much more had to say!

.

.

This day age we are living in,

All so clipped, made short.

Now time we begin to wonder,

What did we then abort?

.

.

First criminal the other cross

Now repentant exclaimed,

Remember me when you come to reign!

“This day in Paradise, you are named!”

.

.

Already repentant?  How can you tell?

He rebuked the other, read Luke 23:39-42,

Luke tells you the story complete!

We die for other crimes, committed!

.

.

We receive due reward for our crimes!

Remembering, He returned!

Repentant in time, he is crying out

Better confess then be burned!

.

.

Try to imagine his agonized scream!

“Please, Lord, remember me!”

Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done.

This day with me you will be!

.

.

On that cross, look, remembering, too.

Tremendous the joy you felt!

Turning away from sin, all that bad,

And felt the hardness melt!

.

.

Ecstatic the joy!  Forgotten the pain!

Rebukes now the other one,

“We suffer for wrongs we have committed!

This innocent man, no wrong done!”

.

.

Innocent man, sure, he remembers,

Of course, never forgot!

Followed me through W. W. II protected,

Even when the wrong I sought!

.

.

I saw, I felt the wrong I had committed,

So bad the wrong, the sins!

Also, I saw guiding my return,

Closer walk came back in!

.

.

Through every pain, wrong things I had sought,

Loving the sins I had lived.

Repentant then near old age, I cried,

Know what He said?  “I forgive!”

.
