What is it that you value most, and in your twilight years
will comfort you and give you hope; ally your greatest fears?

When you wake up in the morning what gets you out of bed?
Is it to the love of money you are eternally wed?

Does you life revolve around the members of your favorite team?
Would hanging out with each of them fulfill your special dream?

Are you climbing up the slippery rung of yet another corporate ladder;
taking risks that would have another mortal emptying their bladder?

Must you travel the world wide surfing every beach
and ride the Big One at Bellís to find dreams within your reach?

Or climb the highest mountain; survive the dessert waste;
pitting yourself against creations wilds, is that more to your taste?

Perhaps it is your husband, wife, son or daughter fair
who takes up every moment, be thy absent or be they there.

Is it time to take a moment at the beginning of this day
to approach the King of Love and simply pray?

As I rise from my bed this morning for our blessed tryst
motivate me, Father, to show your love through Jesus Christ.

A beautiful tribute to our Lord and Master. Very well done - I really, really liked it! Thank you.

I laughed at the line: "Are you climbing up the slippery rung of yet another corporate ladder;
taking risks that would have another mortal emptying their bladder?"

Good writing and great thoughts. I have to admit that setting the bread machine to go off in the morning helps me get out of bed ... but it shouldn't be quite such a high motivating factor...... Thanks for the reminder.

Great message. Thank you for sharing it.

I enjoyed the rhythm and flow of this piece and also the solid message. I felt a little disappointed at the wrapup but I don't know how to suggest that you make it better since I am only an occassional poet. I particularly enjoyed the line where you blended all of the family members so brilliantly into one line.

In your poem, you have written something for everyone to identify with. I loved how you tied it up at the end, reminding us what is truly important. Bless you!

Really well done, priorities often need an ajustment or two. Thanks for this gentle reminder.
