The Patience Of God

by Jim Rapp

I’ve wondered why some are given long life,
others short lives; as they say, “short and sweet”.
As one of the fortunate, with a big slice,
I have to ask why I’ve lived on Long Street.

I’m coming to the conclusion lately
that one thing is likely to buy you days.
Those who view life inaccurately
are granted time in which to right their ways.

Which means, of course, that I should stand with awe,
at the precipice of eternity,
Amazed that grace, unhurried, looked and saw
how years could aid an undone one like me!
