Eternity Today

                 Eternity Today 

Insulated coveralls hangs by the door
On the coat hook fashioned from horseshoes
Back pocket torn and frayed
Hangs lifeless without flesh inside

Heavily worn over many winters
Showing age just like the body that fits inside
Once young and invincible now lived in
Just like coveralls one day worn body cast off

World around us invisible
What is unseen will be seen
When cast off this body
World experienced anew
Truly alive as if for the first time

Beauty seen in a new light
Love experienced as intended
Joy and happiness free of pain and suffering
No more tears or regrets

To experience eternity today
Dwelling in the present engaged with unseen
Encountering Father, loving Him and receiving love
What heart and very being craves
The only One who can truly satisfy my being
