Miracle Of Time

Miracle Of Time

Refreshing
heaven winding
through lungs to heart
I drift upon
lofty heights
through day
shadows fold

A moment
there is time
it lives
it rushes on
celebration
the chance to think
reacting within a miracle

Golden field
heavily laden
grasses forbade
my entry
beauty lies
with in its maze
anxious
for the journey

Fingers find their way
to stem
to pluck
a brilliant rose
crimson coat
swaddles bloom
protected
by the thorn

Lullaby of Peace

sunset

The smell of death is pungent
dementia lurking in the shadows
the air is heavy but with a calmness
the torture will soon be over

Months of sadness give way to silence
eyes speak of better things to come
I hold her hand and sing of day
where memories of this shall be no more

A soft wind blows in fields of peace
gentle is the lullaby that calls her home
release my heart oh soul take flight
realm of glory eternal life

~

I have sat and held the hand of precious elderly, prayed in their ear when

their eyes could not open; when they no longer ate because the dementia told them they were already full.

I have sat and sang at the bedside of dear seniors and felt their last breath of life on my cheek as they crossed over into the realm of peace and no pain. I have been so richly blessed and honoured.

~

We have a hope of eternal life no death or dementia can
hinder the profound promises of God’s word.
Hold onto these promises they’ll carry one through.
