A Sunset on a Tuesday Evening by Fr. John Higgins


A Sunset on a Tuesday Evening

Sometimes when days are long

And the weariness of being human overtakes our senses

The sun goes down a little more slowly,

more softly

if we take the time to talk with Him.

And when our lives seem long

and the wanderings in and out of other’s lives leaves us saddened

the Son rises up to take our hand so softly,

so warmly

if we take the time to talk with Him.

So, it’s for you, Lord, we long

and the things we learn to live come together

Our lives end, only to begin so warmly,

so quickly

if we go through time to talk with Him. Fr. John Higgins Circa 1985
