He noticed the light ’round her hair,

Head and shoulders there…

Someone he knew

Familiarity grew,

Of this countenance like an angel fair!

She knew both of them,

Smiling, she came in…

To the hospital room,

Dispersing gloom,

At her auburn glints he stared…!

Stuck–his mind went blank–

Not knowing, his heart sank…


She prompted memory,

Tracy, he could thank!

She came in on a Sunday,

To a hospital room to stay…

For a short while

Helping the two to smile,

Asking his wife, was she okay?

Took time for him

Bringing a pleasant grin…

This angelic being

They were seeing

Was a good friend.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
