Why Have You Awoken Me? - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

I need a verse and then another,
And then a third, and a fourth and fifth,
To write this poem in praise of THEE,
Then to my bed ~ to return to my sleep.

Why, Dear LORD, have YOU awoken me?
With much pain in my left leg,
Could not these lines wait until the morning,
When I would be fresh after my sleep?

The pain is slowly dissipating,
As I sit in my wheelchair writing this,
Soon I shall no longer feel it,
Then back to my bed to return to my sleep.

Now, I know the reason, LORD,
As this Poem is different now,
Written in Scan but with no Rhyme,
Still praising YOU while I can.

Thank YOU LORD for waking me,
For putting words upon my pad,
For showing me how to write in blank verse,
Which is not so bad.
