Today Is A Very Special Day

Updated on June 9, 2011

God Paid Me A Visit

I was at home doing a little of this and a little of that

Just in the middle of the week and a day off for me

When I felt an unexpected pain in my chest

Not a sharp pain

Not a dull pain

More like an ache that always wanted to grow up to become a pain

Well as I gave it a quick thought and then tried to dismiss the obvious

I repeated outloud then to myself It was nothing

I still wondered what was going on inside my chest

Maybe indigestion I hope and pray

But to who do I pray if God came to visit me today

It could be a sign from God he wants me

I am not ready as I think real quick

It is not your choice my son as he responds with a sigh

I come back with I have work to do and many lives to touch

I have all this love to still give

I have not filfilled my dreams yet

As I ramble on and make my sentences just one big run on

Not pausing at the end of any sentence

The room is filled with silence

I hear you even though you are not speaking clearly

How much time do you need ?

Once again quick on my feet I begin to mumble

20 or 30 years more

MMMMMMMM that could be a problem

How about 10 years at least

You have to be joking

I have given you 40 plus years already

What have you done that wowed me to let you stay ?

Not really

Today is the day

Have you done anything exceptional to help out mankind ?


Have you bent over backwards to at least try

I got a late start but only time will tell

Nothing I see here could make me believe that things are going to be any different

I can try

I have a list of so many that are blind and physically handicapped that can do better than that

I see you have nothing to keep you from achieving your dreams

But you still go slow and in time even slower

You make up excuses for things that you don't do

When you are the only reason that stops you

There is no excuse

Some people just don't make the cut

Even I have to draw the line somewhere

I give you the tools to use and you choose to follow the fools

Then once again there was an airy silence in the room

I knew in that moment there is nothing I could say or do that would change his opinion

I have to accept the truth before me

I patiently wait in just a few minutes my lifetime has passed

I feel in a good mood today and my ride is full

If I didn't have such a tight schedule things would be different

I would find a way to squeeze you in

But it is a long ride and I hate to be all cramped

Thank you and thank you again for leaving me behind

We shall see what tomorrow will bring

I am not making any promises and I might still bring you in

      WOW! This was ´´different´´ to say the least. Everything you wrote is so true for many of us.

      The expression ´life´s too short´´ should be remembered every day, l think.

      Thank you for a wonderful hub.

      Charlu Well it was a wake up call to me.Life is short and even in a second all things change.I feel wonderful about sharing my thoughts and mixed blessings.It is funny I should be thrilled to go to heaven but I was hesitant and that shocked me.I guess I have more things to do still.God never did leave just I closed my eyes and forgot how close God is.Thank you for your time.

      WOW That is pretty deep. Only you know if that conversation was in your head or you were actually talking to him. But think of it this way either way he still knows it took place. Awesome hub and all the ups.
