Borrowed On Living Time

Updated on August 25, 2011

Wanting to live ..... needing to die

My vessel is here .... my soul is already beyond

I am borrowed on living time

one day my voice will rejoice

I will mask my pain and sorrow until

My vessel is here patiently awaiting my Lord

my soul has visited the place I will call home

wanting to Live but needing to die

so burden will not hinder my love ones

feeling so cold when warm air is bestowed

touching light that most can't see

the echo's of my new neighbors to come

waiting patiently for my day to live

and not only on borrowed time.

      @Momma Mia: The transitory nature of what is to those who are here as "Life" is but one of the many stages that the soul needs to make in order to attain the next stage. As we experience it, we learn those lessons which God the Creator sets out before all for each of us to realize.

      It is in that realization that once understood, frees us from fear, doubt and dread. It becomes clear as to our purpose and what we are here for. Sharing is caring and when we give to others, we receive even more than ever we could hope to give!

      I too have experienced much and have finally understood why! Now I am free to become the real person that I was meant to be. You have sensed it, Mia! When it is that time you will know it!

      To Learn, Give and Share is the answer!

      Why am I here is the Question! Remember Seek and you shall find, Knock and it shall be Opened, Ask and you will find the Answer! God blesses and Keeps you and yours Mia, Always! Like the poem voted it up!

      Regards Mike (Aka Professor M!)

      Mia, it comes for us as we grow older or the things that have fed on us like parasites trade their strength for ours. They cannot take the soul, it can be given away and mine belongs to our creator God, I'll pray yours does as well. I slipped through an open heart #2 this year, so not my time, yet just a patch so I laugh as often as I can, Many blessing, much Love, and Peace filled days to you, Dusty
