So tired but I do not want to die!
Ready for Heaven but still
Work to do, poems to write but
Lack the desire, the will!
My thoughts are limited, I know,
Sane thoughts within this mind,
But I do not want them to rot there,
Just one outlet need to find!
And I have found it! Reason to live!
Days maybe years prolonged!
When God says, “Cease and desist,” I will obey!
Then join that Heavenly throng!
What to do when once I get there?
Who knows, of course, my God!
I know I will not lie for Eternity!
Wrapped in a deathless shroud!
Life will be good! Does God have plans,
Think we will smile gleefully?
Think we will see that smile there when
He sees the shock in me?
Like a shock of delight beholding
First prize when presented.
No! Better by far! Imagination,
Enthralled, and consented.
Consented, yes delighted, enthralled!
I accept delightedly!
Whatever God permits I will do,
Like fly with Angels so free!
Now, am I thinking within the bounds
Of pure sanity? Or am I
Already off the deep end
Of section 8 candidacy?
Whatever, if mere words cannot express
Not even from the Thesaurus,
Then a new language must soon become
Heavenly language to suit us!
Limited but unlimited
To please Him, my sole desire!
The burning bush in Heaven will be
A constant living fire!
Maybe sounds way too fantastic!
Way beyond natural bounds!
Then how about supernatural?
Through eternity prolongs!
