E and M


take the letters 'E' and 'M'

and you will plainly see -

that if you switch the letters 'round,

you'll get a word called 'ME'.

Meaningless, the 'E' and 'M'

unless they're switched around.

They have a different meaning and

of course, a different sound.


Now though the word 'ME' supersedes

the letters that you see.

the meaning of this simple word

is greater far than 'ME'.

Yes, 'ME' is such a simple word,

for if I have no breath -

there won't be any life because

without life there is death.


So, 'life' is even greater than

a pile of all our words -

for living in His image is,

as farthing for two birds.

Two birds that are not purchased

will fall to desert sod,

but grace is breath for you and 'ME'

and it is all of God.



if 'ME' is more than letters,

and 'life' is more than 'ME',

and God is more than life itself,

then it's all plain to see.

If meaningful, this profound truth

then what are we to do?

Yes, what does life eternal mean

and who is God to you?
