An Easter Eve Reminder

An Easter “Eve” reminder: The ‘Clock of Life’ is wound but once, No man has the power to tell Just when the hands will stop or what may ring his bell. Now is the only time you own. Live, love, and toil with will. Place no faith in life or time. For both may soon be still. For only He can know for sure what is in store for you. A longer life with gold and jewels or short with rewards few. Its best we’re kept not knowing, we’d worry needlessly Its best we only trust in Him, for trusting is the key. So brace yourself and buckle in, as life may seem so wrong Remember this for sure is true, He’s with you all along. For life is just a test at best, He aims to prove your will. He deserves to know your mind, For He has paid your bill. This brings us now to Easter Day, Tomorrow won’t come late. He died for us, but lives again, that’s what we’ll celebrate. So when you’re tucking in tonight, take some time to pray, Thank you Lord, In Jesus name. Is all you need to say. Written by oldbuck This Easter time poem was prompted by one written on a scrap of paper found in a dead man’s pocket.

Sometimes the clock shows its tongue; Sometimes the history is full of sangue; The light of many may lies in darkness; Some meet the monster of... Lokness. You are a poem kept in my bosom poket: The wishful thinking on the way, like a rocket.
