I awoke this morning and was pleased to spend the day
It seemed I had a lot of time,I thought.
I was so careful, not to let it slip away.
I cleaned and prayed, cooked and sang.
Then played a bit of time
With all my little grand children; There are only nine.
We even read a book or two, before they had a nap.
Planed my list to shop, Please Lord, let time stop.
Of course it went on ticking, mine to freely spend.
There are so many others, with which I want to talk.
A nursing home, the suffering, just surrendered time.
There is a quilt I want to finish and some baking to be done.
Some letters I must write.
There is the sinking sun!
Just sure, my day would be enough
But now know it's done.
Whatever I could not complete must be left behind.
Perhaps I'll get another, and that time will be enough.
However I should spend it, of this one you're a part
If we do not see each other, you've spent it in my heart.
