A Life-changing Dream

One night while asleep
I received a dream.
I awoke with a cold
terrified scream.

I saw in the dream the
end of the age.
As the heavens opened
the earth did rage.

I knew in my heart
I was not prepared,
to rise and meet Jesus
up in the air.

Fell to my face crying
God please forgive.
I'll recall what He said
long as I live.

He said, ' I'm sorry child
it's now too late
your life up to now girl
has sealed your fate.'

It's true I screamed as
I got out of bed.
His words kept replaying
inside my head.

From that day I began
to turn around.
Amidst all my turning,
Life's what I've found.

The movie, '2012'
doesn't scare me.
I've found in my seeking,

Where forever begins
once we get there.
Rising to meet Jesus
in the mid-air.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
