WE DO HAVE TIME

Post by Don » Thu Jun 09, 2011 6:28 pm

IF ONLY ©


If I only had time,
I’d climb for the view
to the top of mountain ascended by few,
my footprints would fall where none had before
as I drink in the beauty of God’s open door.


If I only had time,
there are children in need
of someone to trust and not to mislead,
I would volunteer help to whoever may ask
no matter the place, whatever the task.

If I only had time,
I would stroll hand in hand
with the one that I love, on the beach, in the sand,
as we talk about all of the things we hold dear,
some memories bring laughter and some bring a tear.

But time is the master I cannot command,
it flows like a river in the hourglass of sand,
each grain He will count as the bell starts to chime,
“ IF ONLY”, won’t matter,
Cause I DID, have the time.
