Taking a break...


Infirmity And Love


 


 


 


An early morning call,


Came from my mother-in-law


Laden with


Infirmity


Consumed of


Pain.


Foggy morning


Drizzle, light and cool rain.


Sleepless night


Full and ripe


Almost overwhelmed


with


Bedpan


Smells.


Weary now am I


this


Easter day.


Yet, love gave me strength,


And showed me the way.


However, it seems


That  never ending does my service make


For all to give,


with nothing left of me to take.


Oh lord, I need a break.


For standing vigil through the morn


Has left me weak,


Weary


And forlorn.


Yet, I still stand in thanks for your grace


And will find gladness in Godly love


Be it through service to others


From which my strength comes from above.
