Some thoughts occasioned by events in the family

~~~

Battered shell, a shadow of what was

Burned-out soul locked into the past

Body worn frail with life’s assignment

Brain confused straining to recall:

people, places, names and faces

then and now intermingled.

Signals closing stages of earthly pilgrimage

~~~~~

Yet hope burns bright as spirit is renewed,

faith remains unshaken while fortitude prevails.

Looking beyond to what shall surely be:

To see the face of the Beloved,

To hear His voice affirm: “Well Done”

To feel the surge of life that is unending

And receive the welcome to eternal home …

~~~
