Not ready

to the Lord and Master of the Universe

Unimaginable things to accomplish
To scream out my thoughts for human emancipation
Give me time Lord, to accept your call
I would not like to tell you 'I am not ready'

So much yet to be done in less time
I know that when your call comes
Some more time I may plead but
God, I tell you now spare me for
I would not like to tell you 'I am not ready'

Have mercy and give me time my God
I shall have to take leave of my close ones
Tell them all I could not tell
For I always thought they would judge me
I would not like to tell you 'I am not ready'

But now when you are the final judge
Theirs would not matter any longer
I would surrender to you in totality
Give me little time to say my all
I would not like to tell you 'I am not ready'

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
