If You Had Asked Me...




If you had asked me
I would most likely have said
Keep them…
Keep all of them
And then I would have covered
With my hand the one I thought most beautiful
But God,  You know better than I
The unfolding of time takes moments even in the giving
So you take them
All of them
As You give them,
All of them
And cover my hand
With Yours
Making each moment
The most beautiful
Moment of all
