Reflection for the Week

11thJune 2017

 

The hospice bedside

 

Fitful and fretful you lay

tangled and tortured;

breathless and winded.

“Do you believe in God?” you say.

 

As I sit and hold your hand –

a hand full of years and life

I tell you “I do...

and I know God loves you too.

God loves you very much indeed”.

 

Peaceful and calm you lay

rested and cradled;

breathing and tranquil

as the Spirit intercedes

for one she loves and draws near;

the one God made and Jesus saves.

 

As I sit and hold your hand –

a hand full of years and life.
