No time to knock on Love’s wide door,

No time to stay and talk awhile.

No time to calm the anxious fear,

No time to go that extra mile.

 

No time to make a sad soul sing,

No time to edge dark clouds with light.

No time to act a bit concerned,

No time to cheer, “Faith wins the fight!”

 

No time to be a treasured friend,

No time to help that troubling need.

No time to look beyond one’s self,

No time to hear the lonely plead.

 

No time to say, “God understands,”

No time to share a tender prayer,

No time to beg, “Dear Heart, forgive!”…

…Dear Heart is now no longer there!

 

By our Great- Grandmother, Cornelia Huntsman Conn
