It Is Not Ours

It is not ours to judge
nor even ask why
it is only ours to find joy
and yes, sometimes cry

We each have a light
meant to shine bright
to bring strength to others
and fight the good fight

To lend a helping hand
to smile and to love
to guide and support
not accuse, nor to shove

It is not ours to understand
Gods greater plan
only ours to love fully
our entire life span

We each have a gift
meant to be shared
a legacy to leave
to show that we cared

Live your life well
every day, every hour
give God what is His
all the glory and power

When life gets you down
and sadness just towers
remember this all is temporary
and nothing really ever is ours
