April Sims Poetry: A Moment In Time

 

A MOMENT IN TIME

© April Sims   


i am truly BLESSED to wake up with no ailments


i still have


my sight


my speech


my thoughts


my smell


and my sense of touch


and sometimes i am selfish


and the above never seem to be enough


and every time i feel those feelings


God fully opens my eyes


and lets me see things differently


then i immediately fall to my knees


and thank him for all of the precious gifts


that he has bestowed upon me


precious gifts like your friendship

 

we never knew when we encountered one another


that a priceless friendship would flourish


but he bestowed upon you persistence


because a stubborn one i am


i thank Him every day for your persistence


i think at the time you pushed


and i pulled


we both needed one another


we both needed to breath and share


the same space


and the same air


if not forever . . . then for at least a moment in time

    I am feeling kind of funny. Not funny ha ha, but funny peculiar. You are touching something deep inside of me. I am a pragmatist and not very emotional. However, you are making me feel something, that I am not comfortable with. This post is beautiful. You come off as more of a Pastor/Preacher than a blogger. Sublime!!!
