594. A new Heaven, a new earth

A new friend is not quite dependable.
A new enemy is quite forgivable.

A new patient is a real problem-maker.
A new doctor is an immediate grave-digger.

A new client learns the art of surrendering.
A new lawyer learns the art of losing.

A new Heaven I shall create for God on earth.
A new earth God will create for me in Heaven.
