Just One More

Okay, so you’re not perfect. It’s not perfection that I’m looking for.

You are everything I long for, everything I ever wanted. In fact, I can honestly say I can never get enough of you.

But, if there be any fault at all it would be that it seems one minute you are there and before I know it you are gone.

I can imagine that God is swamped with prayers for you. Every man, woman, and child has tried to wheel and deal with God for you.

I will be the first to admit that I have taken you for granted many times. When I was younger I had no concept, no idea how important you really were.

Oh, maybe in passing, or when I was having so much fun I didn’t want it to stop I’d ask for you.

But now that I’m older and find myself reflecting back, I long for you even more.

Like when I think about my mom and dad, or when my children were little.

I am guessing, too, that when my time comes, I will be asking…

“God, please. May I have “Just one more day?”

“One more day with a loved one

One more day with a friend.

We never know how valuable a day is until we finally come to the end.”
