Only Then

Only Then

Regina Puckett


A shroud of fog hovered inches from the damp ground

As time begged us to come together and gather around

But even if we did, would we listen to its words of warning

The seconds were desperately whispering to us on this morning

That our lives here on earth wouldn’t last forever and forever

And we only have a short time to get it right in this endeavor

To always do our best in showing every man how kind we can be

It is only then our souls will be allowed to become totally free
