April 9 Poem: There Was a Time When I Was Not

by J. Randal Matheny © 2011

There was a time when I was not,
But never will I cease to be;
Before I was, God gave me thought,
And gave the gift of always me.

As I began so will I end,
From dust to dust, from dawn to dusk,
And when I pass the gate, my friend,
I leave you but an empty husk.
