Waiting for Treasure

Waiting day in and day out.
First to see if I’m included,
To see just what you left,
And ponder on what I would do.
So many things said and promised
But by people who tend to assume.
How do I know the truth?
And what is right to wonder?
I hate to be so caught up in thoughts
Of what you have left me,
When I would rather have you back,
But would not dare ask the Lord
To do such a cruel thing to you.
You have the true treasures now.
And the greatest one of them all!
Jesus Christ… our Lord and Savior,
Tell Him and our Father I love Them,
And that Thy will always be my Treasure.
I thank God for all His blessings.

The Fight to Own Someone

Just when fighting over a will seemed to be the worst.,
They start fighting over Power of Attorney
To one with policies, near death, and no one to be beneficiary.
They do not care for this one so neglected by family,
That she lives in a nursery facility.
They have never visited.
They do not even visit while fighting over her.
They all talk to her like she’s a dog,
Treat her like she’s invisible,
And yet fight over her like property.
What does one do in seeing the war?
One prays and prays in confidence
That God knows all, sees all,
And knows everyone’s intentions.
God will protect His child.
God, I pray Your will upon her life and her death.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

BENEFICIARY

To benefit from one’s death
To add to one’s life.
It seems so unfair to the living,
Yet such a wise blessing to the dead.
How do you take money from someone gone?
Someone you can’t even hug or thank?
How do you enjoy life from money
That is born from someone’s death?
Yet how do you reject the last gift one has to give?
How do you say no to someone who was
Thinking of you with their best intentions
In the event of their death?
Beneficiary… how do you accept a benefit
From someone it no longer benefits?
You let them benefit one last time
In accepting their gift…
And allow them to continue to benefiting
From the blessings the gift brings throughout your life.
