An Appeal

Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 2018

I don’t want to live here in this body anymore,
If I sit or lie or stand, everything is sore.
I thought that aging was a time to laugh, a time to reminisce,
Recalling all the years with joy, the challenges, the bliss.

The daring things that we would do when fear was quite unknown;
Each one of us invincible, we thought we were full grown.
We swam cold rivers, climbed high trees – so free, without a care;
The freedom of a carefree life that each of us could share.

But times must change and youth becomes within a few short years
An adult in a busy world and freedom disappears.
We hold down jobs, we set new goals, we raise a family;
We find our faith essential now, it brings stability.

So quickly all the years fly by, our families grow and leave
To make their own mark in the world; a mark they will achieve.
And then one day I’m all alone, the hours crawl slowly by;
Folks are busy with their own lives and I’m left high and dry.

I try to cope, to get around to do the things I must,
But movement has become a chore; my walking I don’t trust.
I finally order “Meals on Wheels" and they discuss my case:
“It’s time to find a home for you; a caring, safer place."

So here I am, with just four walls, they’re closing in on me;
I ache in every place I can; I’m longing to be free!
I’ve time to think, rehash my life, reflecting on the past.
I’ve come to realize one thing – only my faith will last.

The wiry child, the robust youth are all encased in time;
They vanish as the years go by but faith remains sublime.
For now I long to be released, to go to my reward;
To leave these aches and pain behind, to meet my blessed Lord.

My life’s been good but can’t compare with what God has in store,
A mansion in a heavenly realm, a home forever more!
