‘Tis so easy to take for granted
the shape of a God-given day
-as though days are as promised as
the eternity of the ages
-as though nights can’t morph into
sickness and angst
as though life is an entitled gift
wrapped in days and nights
and  tied off with the bow of certainty

……..how easily we forget
