The 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.

Gleaning from the poem and Facebook that this is your own dear husband? So sorry for your loss..
Shalom and blessings,
Yes. Husband for almost 56 years. Thank you.
Thank you, Rochelle.
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.
Bless you, xx
Thank you, Amy.
