a letter from god
i once saw a letter
kept on a table for me
i opened it to see who it was from
but it was written anonymously
i started reading it, all puzzled
not knowing who it was from or what it was about
but i still kept reading it, i had to
the curiosity in me made me
it was a letter from god!
why did he send it to me?
did i do something wrong?
or was it something i did right?
i read it top to bottom
there was something queer about this letter
it was written in the future
but what was it doing in the present?
i thought it would be about gifts i would receive
or about where the Christmas gifts were hidden
but the letter was about something
far more serious!
he started requesting and pleading me
to take this letter as seriously as i can take
he asked me to look after this earth
he took so long to create
all the beautiful trees, mountains and lakes
the birds chirping all around
flowers blooming and butterflies flying
and enjoying like no one was around
he asked me to look outside the window
get rid of all my thoughts for a while
just look at the beauty all around me
and ask myself, :am i doing everything right?"
