HEAVEN II

Never give up!  Keep striving

To do what you must do!

It is a necessary evil,

For you to strive, but it is true.

.

.

We fret, we fight, we worry so

It is so hard to get around!

We may sometimes feel like flying,

But our feet stay on the ground!

.

.

We need Christ’s words of wisdom

Words folk heard so long ago.

They thronged about Him everywhere

His love and grace to know!

.

.

His deeds, His miracles drew them,

His compassion, His acts of love.

Yes, He truly was love, was, is

Now in heaven above!

.

.

He is still the same today, you know.

No?  Maybe we really do not (*)

Recognize we have doctors today.

We trust God or we do not!

.

.

We do trust doctors anyhow,

An educated guess.

God made us!  We do not trust Him?

The problem I confess!

.

.

I know He will take me to heaven

When my time has come to die!

Transcendent beauty!  Glorious!

We gaze transfixed we sigh!

.

.

I will not aid the process

Of dying, this I know,

But for certain I will not fight it.

I will wait until He says go.

.

.

Not go but come.  Do not forget

“We will meet Him in the air.”

Protracted illness?  Worry not!

Where will be no illness there!

.

.

And colors?  Such splendid beauty!

With variegated hues (**)

Of roses, I see every day!

But in heaven, that is old news.

.

.

(*) Of course I trust doctors, most of them, but who is the Great Physician?

(**) Every day my neighbors rose garden.
