The Poem

I knelt to pray but not for long
I had too much to do
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due

So I knelt and said a hurried prayer
And jumped up off my knees
My religious duty was now done
My soul could rest at ease

All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of God to friends
They'd laugh at me I fear

No time, no time too much to do
That was my constant cry
No time to give to soul in need
But at last the time, the time to die

I
Went before Lord
I came, I stood with downcast eyes
For in his hands God held a book
It was the book of life

God looked into his book and said
Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down
But never found the time
