The Thin Thread

The Thin Thread

Thin Thread
tethers husband to this earth
which he walked for seventy-seven years.

He stares at his new surroundings
at Hospice House.

Tell him repeatedly
when he asks,
“Where am I?
Why am I here?”

Pray the angels come quickly
with their sweet chariot
to carry him home.

Note to reader: Two days later the angels conducted him into Jesus’ presence.

  1. Dear Sally,

    Thinking and praying for you as you go through this valley. I didn’t know your husband well but what I did know of him was his generosity, interesting discussions at the steak restaurant, his kindness and his love for tractors, and, of course, for you.

    Beautiful poem.

    Bless you, xx
