I Now See

I Now See


I was still a young boy, when I first saw Godís grace.

A shotgun slipped off a truckís bumper, its barrel in my face.



I had no time to grab it; my hands on the tailgate looking down.

I watched in slow motion; as its butt struck the ground.



I was dead in an instant; killed in a freak accident.

The shotgun slide opened, ejecting the shell that was spent.



But I did not hear the noise or feel the blast rip my face.

And I did not feel the hand of God; as he held me in his embrace.



Looking down into that barrel, I anticipated the sound.

But what I saw was unbelievable, the unfired shell on the ground.



I wish I could say at that moment; I realized Godís grace.

Iím sorry but I didnít, I still had more life to waste.



It wasnít until 1994; when my life was changed.

And looking back before that time; I now, see God so plain.

Wow Irv! This is so powerful! Reminds me of many times on the farm with accidents that I should have been dead, but was "spared". A great poem and reminder! Blessings. king
