Time To Pray; A Poem

I got up early one morning,
And rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish,
That I didn't take time to pray;
Problems just tumbled about me,
And heavier came each task,
'Why doesn't G-d help me,' I wondered.
He answered, 'You didn't ask.'

I wanted to see joy and beauty,
But the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
I wondered why G-d didn't show me,
He said, 'But you didn't seek.'

I tried to come into G-d's presence;
I used all my key to the lock.
G-d gently and lovingly chided,
'My child, you didn't knock.'

I awoke so early this morning,
And paused before entering the day;
I had so much to accomplish,
That I had the time to pray."
