A prayer following my Motherís death and the separation of most of the siblings from each other.

 

 

 


A SISTERíS GRIEF AND PRAYER

 

6 October 1999

 

Shackled by a heavy burden in

this lowly world filled with fleeting

tragic hours.

 

Lord keep me covered and sheltered

by all your heavenly powers.

 

Sisters and Brothers are separated

from their Mother by the inevitable

passage from earth to glory called

death.

 

Sisters and Brothers are now separated

from each other by their own mis-

understanding of their own.

 

Never realizing that days should not be

wasted without claim to love, that

should bind all hearts and minds

together.

 

Lord, we the forlorn, look to thee,

to mend our broken hearts, to put

the pieces back together again

 

Amen
