The Poem, From Some One

Puisi ini saya ambil dari email teman saya, saya tidak tahu siapa penulisnya. Tetapi bila kebetulan beliau membaca, saya ucapkan terima kasih, saya tersentuh dengan puisi ini jadi saya masukkan ke blog saya agar orang lain lebih banyak yang baca

The Poem
I knelt to pray but not for long,

I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease.....
All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They'd laugh at me I'd fear.
No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die.
I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God! held a book;
It was the book of life.
God looked into his book and said
"Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time"
