the first thing he did
was to make the sign of the cross
then his heart beat so heavy
he didn’t understand why
words did rattle as he cried

cherished moments when he was small
when days became nights as he recalled
he longed for love but no one would show
no one to leave his goodbyes and greet his hellos
God tapped his back and he tailed the shadow



with the looks of a probing child, He said
“Come with me, I’ll feed you with the Holy bread.
Have faith in me, I’ll give you the best”
“Thanks, my Lord, I have found You, God bless”



look at him now, my dear God
inside this church he has found the Love
goodbyes were left at the doorstep of hunger
hellos were met beyond familiar danger

thank God for the treasured memories
the golden moments keeping him upright
as he fought his battles, winning victories
You gave him strength when he’s weak to fight
