The"To Do" List

by Jeanie Killion


Thinking of all

I need to do.

Overwhelmed,

I make my list.


Wondering if I

Can make it through,

I realize what I

Really need

Is just to

Talk to You.  


Talking to You,

Listening, too,

Is worth

So much more

Than all my

Struggling through.  


I don’t wanna

Make my way

Through each busy day

Nor go it alone,

All on my own

With scarce moments

To pray

Or hear what You say.  


That’s no way to live.  


So, when I write down

My list of “To Dos,”

Don’t let me forget,

I need to talk to You.
