WEIGHTLESS IN HEAVEN

I will be a friend forever to Jesus,

He is my friend.  First loved me,

Never thought I would be so fortunate

As the promises that I see!

.

.

Like, I will never leave nor forsake you!

Did I trust Him way back then?

When enemy on that island desperate

For food, were taking our men!

.

.

Seldom ever found a corpse though

We lost men everyday!

Did I believe that I would be a meal

When I acted that stupid way?

.

.

Could see their cave from that tree root there

And, of course, I am in plain view!

They were hidden by bushes and felt safe!

But they were low on amo, too!

.

.

Wisely, of course, we hid cautiously

All except for fool me!

With invisible wire and a hand grenade,

Slid down to a path, plain to see!

.

.

Of course, they could see I am in plain view down there.

I waved that grenade to make sure,

Then I planted it so cautiously,

For fools there is no cure!

.

.

Stayed awake after dark to see, rather hear.

Soon rewarded, footsteps, faint but clear.

Quiet and no other sound

I knew that they were near.

.

.

Faint light up there through the trees.

Threw my grenade, both went off!

No one could sleep through all that noise!

A bit louder than any cough!

.

.

Then that screaming from their officer

Frustration was the sound.

Had a feeling the war would soon end!

Then, oh boy, homeward bound!

.

.

Did I still have a home back home?

Questionable, at least!

Assurance, of course, a home in heaven

That heavenly spiritual feast!

.

.

I had lost 30 lbs. down to hundred thirty,

Skin and bone!  That was me!

Fighting weight but weightless in heaven!

Spirit!  I will soar weightlessly!

.

.

I am just plain ole’, plain old!
