I’m getting a little tired of the world as it is today
I’m ready for Jesus to come back and run things His way.
I know it will be so much better than it is now
The reason I know is He gave us His vow.

I know He will come back when His time is right
But I am impatient to see Him, maybe tonight?
No one knows exactly when that will be
But the sooner the better is the way for me.

God has given us some good blessings
Until He returns bringing us our wings.
Things of this world don’t mean much to me
I can take it or leave it as far as I can see

All I really want to be is the humble servant
Of the one who cares so much for me.
No one loves me like He does
To give their only child for me.

Sometimes I set and ponder the universe
And all the ways it works and what I see.
Some people say that I am sweet but I’m not
Its just God’s humble servant working in me.

So I’m trying to set things right
Just in case He comes tonight.
My life is not important to me
Unless He’s in it you see.

So be prepared just in case
You get to see His smiling face.
Don’t wait to late to make it right
So you can got with Him if He comes tonight.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

    A commendable endeavour whose impact has been dissipated somewhat by the sheer number of stanzas. From a general reader’s point of view 5 would have sufficed with sufficient editing.

      Thank you Louis. You always catch the things I miss. I appreciate your kindness and you are entirely correct.
