"Poetry & Rhymes" by William Hancock


“As Shadows Fall”

As Shadows Fall

As the shadows fall,
And our time grows near,
Rejoice in it all,
And have no fear.
For it’s home that calls,
Those shadows we hear.

We’ve fallen from grace,
To be reprieved in life,
A chance to save face,
Through tribulation and strife.
Try not to lay waste,
This chance given twice.

This life is not home,
But a place to see,
Of the seeds we’ve sown,
And for whom we’ve pleased.
Our chance, if not blown,
To the heavens we‘ll be.

As the stars grow bright,
And open their womb,
Lighting up the night,
For they shine not for whom.
But for those who’ve stood right,
And strong through the gloom.

Time is but a speck,
In the existence of it all,
Like the dust on a deck,
Or an atom, so very small.
Pray life was well spent,
. . . .. As the shadows begin to fall.. . . .
