The Visitation

One day I had a visitor, who knocked upon my door,
he tried so hard to sell me some cleaner for my floor.

No thanks, I said and closed the door, retreated back inside,
there's something about salesmen that I just can't abide.

Another day outside my house, a woman smiled at me,
I glared at her suspiciously and fumbled for my key.

The next thing was a neighbour, asked to borrow tea,
he couldn't manage to the shop as he had hurt his knee.

A likely story was my thought, when handing over tea,
that I had worked to pay for, what's wrong with his knee???

Day in day out I saw the worst in every living soul,
with emptiness inside my own suspicion filled the hole.

One day I had a visitor, this time rang the bell,
tried so hard to sell me the antidote to hell.

No thanks, I said and closed the door, retreated back inside,
there's something about salesmen that I just can't abide.

I jumped in shock when cheekily he shouted it was free,
suspicion taking over, well... there had to be a fee.

I told a friend who laughed and said surely you can see?
you've turned away an angel, there really was no fee!

Don't be daft I told her, it just couln't be,
it wasn't any angel, or was it? ...could it be?



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
