No matter what else you are doing,
From cradle days through to the end,
You are writing your life’s secret story,
Each night sees another page penned.
Each month ends a thirty-page chapter;
Each year, the end of a part;
And never an act is misstated,
Nor even a wish of the heart.
Each morn when you wake, the book opens,
Revealing a page clean and white;
What thoughts and what words and what doings
Will cover its surface by night!
God leaves that to you – you the writer –
And never one word will grow dim
Until someday you write the word “finish”
And give back your life’s book to Him.
