My life is just beginning,

True, I stagger a lot,

But just the seventh inning!

Much more time I have bought.



Agreed, breath near wasted,

So do not run anymore!

Since swimming is now floating

I am that close to the shore!



But can I figure the ending,

Is postponed a little?

Time ago busted two ribs!

Of course, bones do get brittle!



Sure, they mended fast, a hurry!

Believe that just a good sign.

And I have slowed down a little,

But that is not a crime!



Since the time I have bought is

That raging within

To express thoughts poetically,

Do not think that is a sin!



I love Jesus, my Savior!

Salvation came down!

I am presumptuously asserting

That I am Heaven bound!



But it is no presumption

I just say I accept!

What Jesus freely offers,

This fantastic concept!



Of course, I pray, “Forgive me!”

How can anyone say,

Jesus died, it is a sure thing,

Please, Lord!  “Teach us to pray!”



“Forgive us our trespasses!”

Cannot we then just assume,

Since He died to forgive us!

Listen up!  Wrong tune!



“Godly sorrow!”  True repentance!

God graciously forgives!

But don’t you dare take for granted,

The Salvation freely gives!



Yes, life is just beginning!

With Jesus just no end!

Eternity begins now!

It is God’s perfect blend!
