The Greater Gift
Why did God so bless the world
to place upon it, man?
Was it just an after thought
He added to his plan?
I think He made a perfect Earth
and painted skies so blue,
then created man to have
some one to give it to.
But man must count his life in years
Earth, countless centuries.
Man needs no further time to heal
from damage done by trees.
Seems the greater gift was giving
Earth a longer span.
And maybe it could heal
from wounds inflicted by the man.
I look forward to tomorrow, while looking back on the past. But today is the day I am living. And I expect it to be a great day!
