I Received Bad News Today, Reckoning

I received bad news today,
	Rather, the bad news I sought.
Thirty years ago, we played.
Attention turned; you walked away.
	Divorce ended, so I thought.

Love was stretched thin to forgive.
	You tried to ease me from my pain.
As friends we could never live.
Let’s start new and not relive.
	Better move on and try again.

I received bad news today,
	Rather, the bad news I sought.
I hoped you’ld be on your way.
But now I am sad to say,
	Your ambitions have all rot.

The news is not well received,
	Deep saddness from what I heard.
How will your children grieve;
How will your parents grieve; 
	The verdict is made and served.

Let’s pray for our reckoning,
	Before passing we are blessed
Summoned to God’s beckoning,
Humbled before our passing,
	And receive our freedom as promised.

I received bad news today,
	Or maybe it’s not so bad,
For the love in what we pray,
Might be answered someday,
	for blessings we never had.

Go in peace, 
Love and forgive.
Pray for His Mercy.
By faith in him so live.
John 3:16-21

Note: The greatest thing I ever heard came from the lips of an incarcerated felon accepting Jesus Christ who said: “I thank God for prison because now I am truly free.”
