The long silence is over,
The time is here to stand for truth,
Life is too short to waste a moment,
Lost in rushing around full of futile activity,
Forgetting what Eternity will always remember.
I want my life to be different,
Not wasted on piles of cheap trinkets,
A legacy of obedience to God will be my hope,
Stupidity can do what He wants,
Mocking words will not deter me from loyalty,
I will reap my reward of faithfulness,
And, face the consequences of forgetting you.
My saddest moments came when I forgot,
When I made this life everything,
You took everything so I would remember,
Now, I seek God in my daily prayer,
Knowing that my brief time here,
Is the beginning of a smile that ends with eternity.
