Better Late

Late have I learned to listen,
to rest,
to weep,
to be.
Almost gone are moments to go slow,
to reflect,
to wonder,
to day-sleep.
Fleeting is the day for wordless prayers,
to pause,
to sing,
to remember.
Late have I learned to turn up the quiet,
to speak low,
to be small,
to love well.
“Late have I loved you, beauty, so old and so new: late have I loved you.”

About Joe Chambers

I am the beloved of the Most High God. I am an avid reader and writer and have been a continuous learner since my college studies in Ancient Literature and English. I live at the base of Mount Princeton in the Colorado Rockies with my wife of over three decades. I believe I have been put here to tell people that God is not mad at them and to show them the way Home. I am the father of three sons, three beautiful daughters-in-law and four grandchildren. I love to read, tell stories, and spend time in the wilderness.
