Lingering Life

Petals from the flower
Fall to the ground.
Seeds of life
Lay all around.
The grass so tall
Sways in the wind
Praising the Savior
Again and again.
Clouds and sunshine
Play in the blue sky.
Will it rain on life,
Or lovingly pass by?
Wings flutter and flick
Before they come to rest.
Butterflies, birds, and bees
Comfy in their nest.
The cool breeze lingers.
The flowers dance.
Isn’t this where we began
When God gave us a chance?
