WHY DID YOU WAIT?

WHY DID YOU WAIT?

I want to ask, but know I can’t,

Why did you wait so long?

Now time is short, and days are few,

Your life is almost gone.

*

This question that I yearn to pose,

In this so weary land,

I ponder it within my heart,

And try to understand.

*

God’s Holy Spirit, came to me,

Within my heart to dwell,

I read God’s word, and knew there was,

A heaven and a hell.

*

You’ve heard the Gospel, many times,

Seems nothing I could do,

Persuaded you, the Bible is,

God’s word, completely true.

*

These days you barely understand,

You hear not as before,

My heart does break, why did you wait,

Till almost at death’s door?

*

Salvation at the end of life,

No doubt there are a few.

God’s gracious love, still calls to those,

Who many times refused.

*

But when the day of death arrives,

And you are called afar.

When all is done, will I be left,

Just wondering where you are?

*

I know there’s hope, while life exists,

But still my heart weeps sore.

My heart does break, why did you wait,

Till almost at death’s door?
