A Lifetime Of Treasure - Poem by Gerry Legister
One day of supernatural favor
Is worth a lifetime of treasure.
Retirement is not in the plan,
It's not my time to demand.
Without the painful toil,
The canceled debt will enter a new turnstile,
Release a thousand times fold,
Your phenomenal blessing will unfold.
More peace during the terrible storm
And good health from the healing balm.
Not on merit; the grace we now inherit,
May turn, to wipe away the adverse credit.
From a spectator to the theatre,
You will have a lifetime of treasure.
