0316 Faith - For You Who Asked - Poem by Michael Shepherd

Yes, there is a stage
and yes, there are actors;
a script to engage;
an experienced director..

Yes, indeed, I’ll pray for you
to the One they say best deems
those matters which may bless our soul
however strange they seem;

Oh yes, I will pray for you,
as much as human can;
but, add this wish from me for you,
which is more personal:

In course of time – who knows how long? –
may you look back and say,
‘Although it seemed ungodly cruel,
it turned out well for me..’

Yes, there is a stage
and yes, there are actors;
a script to engage;
an experienced director.

    When the curtains close, and the scripts no longer speak a story, there are always lingering moments we walk out with that inhance our lives. Nice Write! (Report) Reply
