When All of Time Stood Still
Author requests article critique
I wrote this for my cousin Dewey when he discovered his wife and two children murdered in their home, Sept. 1999.
WHEN TIME STOOD STILL
I will never forget the day
When all of time stood still.
I will never forget that day
When I cried, “God, is this Your will?”
Time went on for all the rest,
Normal in so many ways.
A fleeting second, a heartbeat in time
Can change the course of the day.
A moment and a sudden change
Befell me as others carried on.
As I sat in disbelief
I felt like a checkmated pawn.
Unable to move, nothing in return
My world came to a crashing halt.
While waiting on help to arrive
All I could think was, "Who is at fault?"
Those long silent moments
I felt so helpless in aid,
Were like the ticks on the hands of Time
Stood still…for no sound they made.
I’ve come a long way since that fateful day,
And my progress is beginning to show.
I know my God wept with me then
And holds me up wherever I go.
Though these memories are now a part
Of who I am and will be,
I will move ahead with Time on my side…
Day by day the seconds flee.
With each passing tick of the clock
I climb up healing’s hill.
But I shall never forget the moment
When all of time stood still.

Very touching. Experiences like this one are tough on the mind and spirit. But God saw you through it. Thomas
