Closure

Closure

The darkening of the day.

Full stop.

The light dies away.

Closure

It’s all dead and gone.

Time’s up.

You’re left to carry on.

Closure

Tying up of loose ends.

Completion.

A new chapter begins.

Closure

Signed on the dotted line

Well done.

Some things left behind.

Closure

Yet there seems to be a void.

Finished.

Yet some things you avoid.

Closure

You’ve passed on the torch

No worries

You’re rocking on the porch.

Closure

But He’s not done with you

Perfection.

One day will come true.

Closure

‘At the door I knock’

You open

Time to restart your life’s clock.

“My life closed twice before its close;
        It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
        A third event to me,
So huge, so hopeless to conceive,
       As these that twice befell.
Parting is all we know of heaven,
       And all we need of hell.”     E.D.

    Dr. Witherington, thank you for this post! Your poem touched me deeply, and really speaks to me in this season of my life. Powerful stuff. God has truly blessed you with a profound diversity of gifts, and I enjoy your creative entries as much as your scholarly ones. God bless.
