Amen the Final Chapter

By Jim Stewart c 1990

It's been long since the snow has melted

And the flowers have all wilted down to the ground.

But I went back to see the one from which I came

The grass had grown back on the ground by now

And not another living soul could be found

But there is something about this solitude

That brings the serenity out in me.

Is it the words of the parsons prayer Still ringing in  my ear

Or the words to some forgotten Church Hymnal

Like "Bringin in The Sheaves"

 

As I kneel down to pray

I see an old man out of the corner of my eye

Putting flowers on his wife's freshly dug grave

I start to wonder what kind of woman she was

And how he must miss her so.

That is when I hear a baby crying

It's a vicious circle I think

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away

As I head back to my car

Just as mysterious as the serenity that hit me earlier

A smile comes across my face

 

Amen, The Final Chapter
