In the twink of an eye many people will fill the sky
As they travel upward to those left they say goodbye
Left Behind
Without a notice suddenly how terrible that will be
No laughter, no happiness only sadness and misery
Left Behind
Many are quickly missing, others are left to confess
No one left available for the masses to get blessed
Left Behind
Good people are suddenly missing to the air did flee
Friends and loved ones missing no longer will they see
Left Behind
Pleasure seeking fun loving people still in their prime
Left on earth to question failing to give God the time
Left Behind
Too late to ask forgiveness Too late for any sympathy
Too late for many to bargain too late for them to plea
Left Behind
Excuses and alibis throughout the land will be given
As concern from those left behind is quickly driven
Left behind
Weeping and crying can be heard throughout the land
On the mountains, in the valleys and at the coastland
Left Behind
Here, there and everywhere only disaster in the street
Calamity was a silent word with everyone that did meet
Left Behind
Some did choose to hide while others chose to leave
The wealthy land and homes they managed to achieve
Left Behind
God's grace is no longer working in the town or the city
God's grace has said goodbye I'll be gone so don't pity
Left Behind

"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed". (1 Corinthians 15:52)

There are three portions of time to consider here, The wink, the blink and the twink (no kidding-there was actually a study done). A blink is a controlled movement of the eye and so it's length of time is indeterminate, but the quickest blink lasts for a half second. A blink is a reflex action of the eye and lasts somewhere between 300 and 400 milliseconds. A twink is a reflected particle of light seen in the eye and thusly travels at the speed of light (983,571,056 feet per second) This equates to an infinitesimally small fraction of a second, so it would be fair to say it occurs in about a billionth of a second (which in itself is such a small period of time as to be nearly inconceivable, but is gigantic compared to the actual time in which a twinkle occurs).

Wow, what a ride that will be, when we Christians are called to meet our Christ in the air. And, what a sad time that will be, for those left behind.
