I Don’t Know

Sky

I don’t know the why

But I know the One who does

He sits upon high

I don’t know the when

But I know the One who does

And He knows the time to begin

I don’t know the how

But I know the One who does

And I’ll trust Him in the now

I don’t know the where

But I know the One who does

And He’s already there

I don’t know the end

But I know the One who does

And I’m glad He’s my friend

Sometimes…

Original watercolor of a sunset
Watercolor sunset by Leona J. Atkinson ©️2020

Sunsets like life,

End suddenly, shocking us

With bursts of color,

Or subtlely fade away

With faint hues of calm repose.
