A little longer

Earth laughs in flowers

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Linger.”

Tell us about times in which you linger — when you don’t want an event, or a day to end. What is it you love about these times? Why do you wish you could linger forever?

There are many times I dare to linger

To stay when I really should go

When it’s time to bid loved ones farewell

My heart yearns, but the clock is my foe.

In a garden resplendent with dew

Where the scent of the rose doth abound

Where the butterflies light on the leaves

And all manner of beauties arise from the ground

My most beloved place to linger

Where I know all is well with my soul

Is in the presence of Almighty God

As His love makes me feel pure and whole

  1. It is wonderful to linger in that presence where we touch eternity.
