Of a sudden
my earthly being
betrayed me

Sprouting deadly disease

What am I to think

Am I to succumb

Or fight

Where is God in this

Back I go
seeking what I know

It is blessed to give
But giving needs receiving

For long I gave
and that was holy

Now I receive
which may be holier yet

I do not fear death
a coming home to Wondrous Love

I’d just as soon
dodge pain

But I can face it calmly
pushing me
into God’s arms

Why me I won’t know in this life
Look forward to understanding in the next

Mean time I will bask
in the care and love that surrounds me
