It's hard to write through intense pain,
but this I know- it's not in vain.
For God so loves. He offers grace-
while selfish man still turns his face.
So I will write my prayer today
that man will turn from wicked way.
My numbered days, I cannot view
and doctors say I may have few.
So I will change and will not wait
to share His love at this late date.
Please humbly love and then confess
and then repent and He will bless.
For ALL have sinned against His will,
yet grace abounds. Yes, even still.
There's nothing more I'd rather see
than you accept, and Christian be.
