From God... to God

It was a true delight to watch as New-day opened her eyes

...this is a course none can alter or force as we traverse Time's sod
We are on a one-way return-trip from God to God

Time's lowered gaze raises and chases the lingering dark
From night-warm arms of slumber to that port where we embark
On roads not taken yet, to destinies soft-veiled with naught
But that which we half-see conceived in the guesswork of thought 

Urgency pours, implores; sky-rivers brim and spill in gold
From Heaven's God to sod; mercy ushers new over old
And we who yet remain on this side of Forevermore
Are caught up in hope's hungry tug-of-love-and-longing-war

Grace fills the cup uplifted like Spring furbishing the limb
Where human-race is gifted with a Masterpiece from Him
And all that we are called to do as on and up we trod
Is offer our best with what we have, from God to God
