If I Could
If I could talk to a rose, I’d ask the secret to its beauty,
If I could talk to the moon, I’d ask how it captivates so many,
If I could talk to time, I’d ask why are you in a rush to go?
But there are things in life we were never meant to know.
We were created with the capacity to question our lives,
To contemplate our creation, reflect on our design,
However there are limits to the human mind,
Events only clear with the passing of time.
You are not burdened beyond your scope,
Trials you are given, He knows you can cope,
Fully aware, All-Seeing and Hearing,
Tests designed for you, you should have no fear in,
Seek strength from Him alone; seek His guidance & mercy,
In the darkness of the night, cry out urgent pleas:
For a grateful heart at all costs,
A patient soul when all seems lost,
A tongue that brings benefit or remains closed,
The secrets you have not to be exposed,
The strength to face each day with determination,
And persevere in your unique destination.
The questions that don’t have answers should not fill our days,
Place your trust in your Lord, who guides your way,
Live life with gratitude and give thanks for your blessings,
Don’t dwell on what you can’t change, pray for what tomorrow brings,
Let the rose bring joy with its beauty
Let the moon bring wonder with its shine
Let the dial on the clock keep ticking, as we reflect on the mystery of time.
