The Things

The Things In Life…


There’s things in life that go by fast!
There’s nothing in this life that will always last!.

Many of us have nice houses and cars…
food on the table, and "cookies in the jars."

We forget the time we spend with our family,
trying to live our lives pretending we're happy.

Whatever we seek to give us “entertainment” and “charm…

Should somehow, inside of us, “raise an alarm.”

Do you find your true love in “life’s many things?”

Is there true happiness in what life brings?

We’re empty within, if we don’t have God throughout!,
Do we forget that the author of life is about.?

Come to your savior…  Don’t hesitate!
Do it now....the hour's growing late!!!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
