Some eagerly explain and proudly proclaim that all
Past time is eternally lost.
But I enquire is it in the present or in disguise?
Or all in the silent past?
Yet all false teachers still maintain that
None have tasted its
Sweet aroma, or listened to its
It is a living mystery, bequeathed to
Us at the Creation!
God the Master/Monarch created
Time in six
Special unique days.
Then offered He a permanent light
To what was
Once just darkness.
A blind child once enquired of a famous singer:
"What colour is the wind?"
Shaking his famous head, to these few words a
Simple answer he could not find.
Have not modern lyricists offered in song:
As time Goes By
Time after Time.
Yet as hard as they try none can it seems
Compose or emulate a single line.
Such is the timeless gift of Creation that
The Almighty once prepared
At the advent of time;
Then God in one saving week offered all future
Salvation for yours and mine.
Killing time is the perfect crime, or so it has
Been widely rumoured!
Yet dear friend at the final judgment many dear-
Weeping souls will be forever severed.
From spending with the Heavenly Father
Their own prime time.
Then we are promised none shall weep, nor mourn, nor
grieve, or know strife!
But shall safely walk and talk with that Precious One
Who gave us meaning. But most of all Eternal Life!
