Blessed Timeless Eternity
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



When I was a youngster one thing that I never knew

Was just how fast the commodity that we call,  “Time flew”

I could hardly wait till I grew up, it seemed it would take forever

Now looking back, I can reminisce, does time stand still? No never!


I see it now so clearly even with dim filled eyes

Of all the things I've confirmation of

Is surely, how time flies


It seemed it was still Monday, but Friday's here already

Saturday's paper's my favourite reading

Sunday's church and bible study



Some of it has been taken up with good fellowship and praying

Then all the things I had plans for by the wayside they fell

Yet I didn't seem to be worrying about them

Well, only time will tell


I must be growing old gracefully as wifey's still my friend

The kids still laugh at grandpa's jokes

Even if they odd-ball end


I haven't worn a watch for years I haven't time for that

I'm walking on earth's pathway sure

But Heaven's my Habitat


Sure I still pay for room and board

But one day it'll be free

When I'm in the mansion He's prepared

Blessed timeless Eternity

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
