IN PARADISE

Is it wishful thinking?

No!  Been there, done that!

Then is it blessed assurance?

Yes, for sure!  Contact!

.

.

My thoughts turn to Jesus!

Heart turns a page!

Suddenly I am tearful!

No!  Not from old age!

.

.

My heart is filled with longing!

I consider the cross!

With tears flowing freely!

My freedom!  His loss!

.

.

Surely, I am aging!

Quite admittedly!

But not at the cost of

My sanity!

.

.

With His mother I see Him

Writhing in pain!

Head, hands, feet, His side,

Blood flowing again!

.

.

Then I hear that piercing scream!

Father God, why ME?

My Father, what have I done?

We know this must be!

.

.

Son!  My precious wounded Son!

That rolling thunderous sound!

Soon Our victory will be won!

Thunder enters the ground!

.

.

A sigh from that torturous cross,

“Now into Your Hands

I commend my poor Spirit,

Obeyed Your commands!”

.

.

Sheer blackness obliterates

All sight consumed!

Priests fall into each other!

All terror presumes!

.

.

Earth’s foundations then shaking!

As never before or since!

God’s wrath clearly showing

For Heaven’s Prince!

.

.

A thief cries out, “Remember me…”

Compassion hear Him say,

With dying breath, “Yes, I hear,”

He whispers:  “This day…”

.
