..are you ready yet?


"Are you ready yet? Can you let go
Of all you've got from life to show?"

I thought a minute and answered "no.."

"Will you take my hand and walk with me?
You have a spirit that should be free.."

I thought a minute and answered "no..."

"My child", He said, "It is almost time..
When you must leave this world and come into mine."

I thought a minute and answered "no..."

"I have my children, my hopes and dreams..
It may seem selfish by any means.."
"I just need time to get organized;
Not ready for wings of any size..."

He thought a minute and answered "no.."

So I took His hand and walked away -
He led me Home and bid me stay.

"Do you miss life the way it used to be,
Do you still want everything you see?"

I thought a minute and answered "no..."

What seemed important down below...
"Do I miss it, Lord?" I answered "no!"

Treasures on earth or in Heaven above,
we each must travel through life with love.

We may not have time or all we think we need;
but as the tree grows from a little seed..
He gives us the time to make things right;
to know the wonder of His light.

It wasn't really as I had planned -
But it was time and I took His hand.
