Three words resound upon my ears

And play a role deflecting fears

They lend me strength beyond my years

And help me to absorb life’s tears !

At times I find I’m in a bind

That life has been unfair, unkind

I’m hopeful as new days unwind

There is some justice left to find !

What is this hell that men call war

What is it they are fighting for

They’ve wasted so much blood and gore

We’ve known  it all and want no more !

There is a door, where does it go

The truth is that I do not know

There is a place beyond the stair

I do not care how it got there.

What is it looms behind that door

The one that all are searching for

How will I know what we will share

I have no fear, God will be there !

 

 

SMALL VICTORY ( 2017 ) 2017/07/19

Oh Lord sometimes I find I cannot bear

This useless pain I suffer everywhere

I’ve searched so hard to find another way

To force this endless ache to fade away.

My strength is gone and my courage got lost

As I feel myself in a tempest tossed

Dear Lord, what shall I do to set me free

Help me to score this last small victory !

EXCUSE ME but I have just returned home from another one of my medical adventures which are becoming more frequent as time passes.  I am impelled to applaud many of the professionals who take their ER duty to the Nth degree !  There’s Danielle who daily travels from south Jersey to Hoboken regardless of traffic or weather.  Or Joy, who moves around helping the patients attached to varied drips or machines reach the facilities or get a food tray or liquids, or Ado as he endlessly smiles and tends the infirm.  And Frank who constantly manoeuvers the beds from one area to another during his shift, never making a sound !  When you have at last secured your bed space in the proper department, with the helping angels, nurses, aides like Marichelle, Maria, Michele, Kathy, Paolo and many others with their stream of endless care.  We even experienced a real fire emergency on the 2nd day ! There are myriads of other workers, laundry, cleaning, maintenance like Carmen or Billy on their toes and alert.  And the doctors, Simon, Orbelyan, Lim or  Krish on the floor moving from room to room.  There are nurse managers like IJ overseeing procedures and needs.  But my favorite is the Chaplain Marjorie who has words to bring peace to all, group prayer, sing-a-long hymns.  She is the soft spoken disciple of God who utters kind words of comfort and reason !  God bless all and thank you for being there !      Sincerely,      Claire B.

I miss the days of glory old

Where history and myth unfold

With repeat tales now long gone by

Of memories that did not die

When we were young and energized

And all our dreams seemed realised  !
