When I was young I used to pray

That I would be a mom one day

I’d raise my offspring to be good

And do the things that children should.

I’d hoped that we’d fulfill the dream

It was a lock or so it seemed

The angels watched from up above

And filled their heads with care and love.

But love is not enough to save

Each one of them from perils grave

There is no way that we may know

Wherein life’s tragedies will grow.

In winds of war or illness great

Who knows the time or day or date ?

This child I held close to my breast

Has left me now to be at rest

His life  of pain at last set free

Upon God’s unrelenting sea.

This was his battle for too long

He tried so hard, he was so strong

But here we are, this is the end

I’ll miss you son, my life, my friend.

I doubt if we shall meet again

Another time, but where or when,

There’s none to know or even learn

Truth is, no one has e’er returned !

Our faith in God counts quite a lot

As it’s the only hope we’ve got

That bides with us both night and day

To keep us safe and fears allay.

Too soon the dark moves closer in

As each prepares to lose or win

Remember always God is there

Sharing love and unselfish care !

The walls are sterile, antiseptic clean

The floors are silent mopped by hands unseen

The night is long and chill and strangely stark

As tip toe feet cross these halls in the dark.

There is one thought that quickly flashes by

This is a place where few prepare to die

The air is still, but hear the humming sound

As thousands of machines do all surround.

Here nurses try to understand slurred speech

Dealing kindly with parts of pain’s release

Pray time does rapid heal without delay

As some won’t live to see another day !

 

 

TOO HUGE TO FILL ( 2015 ) 2015/02/11

Today’s a day that I recall

When I was young and oh so small

My father took me by the hand

He hoped that I would understand.

We talked of God and varied things

And whether angels do have wings

He had so very much to say

We walked and chatted all the way.

In those remaining years we knew

My dad and I much closer grew

He tutored me, I was his clone

That’s how I learned to stand alone.

I thank him now for lessons taught

And all the strength his wisdom bought

I miss him still and always will

The gap he left too huge to fill !

 

THE HOSPITAL ( 2015 ) 2015/01/22

I’m home at last quite grateful too

And none the worse for black and blue

The odd fact is I’ve had no fear

Reminding me I’m glad I’m here.

When looking back I always find

The nurses are both swift and kind

I’d like to say a true thank you

To docs and staff and workers too !

I do not think that they can know

The miracles that they bestow

Upon the old, disabled too

Thank God they’re here for me and you !

 

INTENSIVE CARE ( 2015 ) 2015/01/07

The walls are white, the trim is steel

There is no warmth in what you feel

The sounds are muted and unreal

No clicks are heard from some high heel.

The quiet force moves fast and fleet

Seems this world creeps on slippered feet

The silence fills the void complete

While others will their maker meet !

Who hopes to lie abed in fear

Hear angel voices in their ear

Without some gentle ray of cheer

To know that God draws ever near ?
