Why cannot I be like other folk, Lord?

So often I cry!

I see an endless multitude go

Laughing, passing by.



To my brother, I was a dummy,

Could not fix a thing!

He mastered everything that he touched!

But forgot how to sing!



Although, at times, we did radio,

Sang duets a lot!

Fellows listening back at school

Said that they could not–



Tell which of us did harmony.

Voices so similar.

Later, then quartets the same

Blending, familiar!



Dueting the harmony real close!

His voice then got low!

Quartet the answer, bass he sang

Like, going with the flow.



Later, forty years a Pastor,

Machines he could not forget!

Fixing cars, clocks, sure everything.

Sure, just everything that he met!



Me?  Old now near everyone has

Passed me up, the dying

Getting nearer, surely I am 94!

Sighing a lot, not crying!



Why should I cry with heaven so near?

I look up!  Rejoice!  Sing!

My Savior died to redeem me!

Soon I will be with my King!



Meanwhile, I feel body parts sagging,

Not a lot left of me!

One thing remains still, I can do

Write good poetry!



(Rodeheaver Hall-Mack & Standard Publishing Co., like it too!

Oh, and Ideals also.)
