Standing on the Stage of Life

Standing on the stage of life,
we play our part
as best we can,
some days bringing down the house,
other times eliciting only boos.
But always
God is there,
standing in the wings,
prompting us,
urging us on,
and clapping enthusiastically
even when,
beyond the footlights,
silence reigns.
our indispensable audience
of one.
