Family passed away. Father is all that is left.
As I walk this evening I can
feel the day's end is all around.
Every sound in my hearing is of
someone's rush to get home.

The end of the day brings an
opportunity to walk, to think
about the day. Where did I go
wrong? What did I do right?

How can I achieve it again?
Do I want to do it once again?
The night falls all around me.
I can see families through their
windows as I walk on.

They're talking about their day,
enjoying their time together.
They should take advantage of
the time they have together, as
all we have is today.

There are no promises beyond
today. I recall the time when I
rushed home to share my day.
I would gladly pay to share my
day with my family again.

Nothing stays the same, as the
seasons change, so our lives
change ever so slowly, but never
the same. Enjoy your loved ones
while you can.

The chance may never come
again. Life is but a brief rush of
wind, we feel its touch, and it is
gone, where it has gone no one
knows.

We feel that we have a whole
lifetime ahead, and yet each
moment waits for the next
moment. Our lives depend on
the next heartbeat.

Life is so delicate, here today,
only to vanish tomorrow. The
lifetime anticipated was not
promised, only expected.

As I turn and climb the stairs
I think about a promised time,
a time coming that will not fade.
Those who seek the Lord know
that one day soon Jesus will
return.

In an instant, we will be taken up
to meet him in the air. A new life
will begin. A life that will never
end, shared with those that have
gone on before.

One thing in common shared; a
love for the King, Jesus Christ.
Yes the same that bled and died
for you and I.
