There you were, always shifting
Guess I always thought that you would be there.
But I did not realize that you were slipping away,
Not till I awoke to discover it was too late.
I remember it like yesterday,
The day I went under the knife,
The Doc swore he’d do all he could,
To restore my temporal sight.
But in that moment time stood still.
With pokes and prods I learned heaven’s will.
Too much scarring I heard him say,
And then a temporal cadaver remained
Everything I thought once mattered
My faith once strong, now shredded and shattered.
Years I traipsed through that desert waste.
Heaven was to blame
Went to the church when it was expected
Only to retreat, his message rejected.
Yet even still an ember remained ,
and if I listened I’d hear his whisper.
Slowly the ember brightened to a spark.
Death transformed to life inside my heart.
I still lack temporal vision,
But with ears wide open I’ve begun to listen.
Eternity is just a breath away,
And on that day I will see the face,
Of the one who bore the nails and took my place.
