Time at Hand

My journey through this life I've led
Has seen the good and bad misled
To think one has control of things
Ones self control of everything

But time has come to make amends
Time draws near as time will end

I've lived my share of sleepless nights
Of broken dreams that would shed light
Upon my soul that found such rays
Rays of hope for which I prayed

My ways of living fast drew lost
Holding to nothing yet great the cost
Time I could not live again
Time once mine of then and when

I downed the hills of cocaine slopes
There where mind of soul eloped
To things of no real use to me
Things worthless exhaled and breathed

I fathered one but raised two others
Children mine and too their mothers
A trek that made for worthwhile living
My all I'd spend to them giving

But things were not always so good
My heart searched for life's fire wood
A yearn not filled to feel the warmth
Of hand, of one that still heart haunts

I've painted portraits in my mind
Of happiness, one of a kind
Not of this Earth for I've seen such
The days of me where I lost touch

Today I strive to serve but one
To hold fast to, become someone
That seeks to share of Him the Son
Of Lifes blood shed for this no one

Time at hand, Make time yours count
