If wealth and fame are treasures true
Why do they last but days so few;
If things possessed could quench a soul
Would it then seek no higher goal?

If life is but these days not long
Why sings my soul sweet heaven's song;
If here and now are all we've got
Then haven't we a sorry lot?

If it were not for His great grace
Would hungry hearts still seek His face;
If His great love did not appear
What then could save man from his fear?

If there be not eternity
Why does He sing to you, to me
Such peaceful soothing strains of love
...Pure rhapsody from up above?

So graciously He beckons all;
So blessed are they who hear His call.

Beautiful! These sort of poems are my all time favorite.

You ask the perfect question......why, indeed? There's gotta be a reason somewhere. Thank you for your words.

Good piece here and good peace here. It really speaks to and soothes the spirit. I feel much better now. I needed that.

Lady D: Although I do not possess a solid belief in the heaven / hell hereafter, I do believe in an existence after this one, that there is some ultimate being (God if you will) and that there is some higher purpose to our individual and collective lives. That said, your poem still spoke to me. I enjoyed your poem very much. It has a peaceful quality that comes with the assurance of your convictions. Thank you for sharing.
