Once In A Lifetime - Poem by Timothy Branch

One time If given the chance, incredulous would be their uncontrollable and jovial dance.
Never did I fathom having the chance to give into one's life a chance to fulfill a lifelong dream.
To see the adulation in the heart of the beneficiary of your gracious gift sends feelings of goodness like God's fanning hand sends ripples into waves that tickle the seashores.
Like the seashore stands ready to receive more affectionate and titilating waves, more ready stand to provide a once in a lifetime moment.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I saw the joy of my mother fulfilled as she set foot in Paris on yesterday. After years of study as a child, the great joy I saw as she experienced each step that she took. I'm grateful that God used me to aid in the fulfillment of my mother's dream.
