FOREVERMORE

She was a preachers daughter, I a missionary son!

Guess birds of a feather flock.

Could hardly ever keep us apart!

Like, they almost shared one sock!

.

.

I knew that someday I would settle down,

To do the ministry thing!

But meanwhile life was calling out there

And this boy must have his fling!

.

.

So fling it was from Atlantic, cold,

To Pacific, warmth, go West!

Hitchhike, of course, one place?  This clown?

Of course, I loved the Pacific best!

.

.

But in between two states, did their thing,

The wild wilderness attracts!

Wyoming and Utah, wide open spaces

Just highway and railroad tracks!

.

.

Traveled both ways, never cost a cent!

Boxcars always free!

Hitchhiking the easy way, way back then!

No free ways distracted me!

.

.

Then civilized, yes, in the Army life!

Conforming to no life at all!

Lost millions of men in World War II!

Did I then hear God call?

.

.

I believe, yes, many times over!

God only knows His ways!

He spoke not just once but many times!

Bad tricks, distraction plays!

.

.

God stayed by my side!  I love Him so!

What’s left of my life I give!

Back to Him who sacrificed all!

That I with Him may live!

.

.

I am settled now, my mate has been

With me through ten or more

Churches, that is, I am a three-year man,

As I have mentioned before!

.

.

Settled down now, lost most of her kin

Are gone!  As are my own!

Know something, up there we will be

Nevermore alone!

.

.

Know what else?  Count a multitude

Of children, grandchildren and

Great to carry on this legacy that

We will share in foreverland!

.

.

My prayer!  You know this is my prayer,

I weep for you all each day!

That I will see you all at home!

With God to stay there always!
