Poems worth waiting for

By James J. Metcalfe


God Bless You

Dear friend of mine, there is no way
... In which I could address you
... With more sincerity of heart...
Than just to say God bless you...My
words could wish that all your cares...
Would be a little lighter... and I could
send you greeting cards... To make your
hours brighter... My lips could call good
luck to you...Or whisper happy land-
ing...And I could promise you the depth
...Of faithful understanding...But
I am sure no other thought... Or mes-
sage would impress you... As lovingly or
lastingly... As asking God to bless you
...And so I say God bless you, friend
...In every good endeavor...And
may His guiding grace be yours...For-
ever and forever.
