As I gazed into the windows of the past
I feared I had lost something....
Or was it carefully kept,
To be hidden, forever at rest.
Was that talent given by the Creator,
Buried, shadowed, full of dust!
Then one day, it was just found,
In that dark corner, in that dusty ground.
I picked it up with gladness.
But tears shone in my eyes,
I had not doubled it for my Master
" Go and use it," whispered that loving voice,
" You know, I love you, but you have a choice."
This is for all those who have hidden their talents,
Use it, double it, triple it,
Do not bury it.
