    The starkness stands out,

    I feel like a mouse,
    hunted
    by an invisible cat,
    feeling its presence,
    yet it eludes me.


    I hate the feeling, Lord,
    vulnerability,
    being in an open field,
    no place to hide,
    yet it is life as it has always been.


    The starkness stands out,
    as well as life's fragility,
    so I do the best I can,
    pray,
    work in our infirmary,
    be present for those i
    live with and love.


    Truly like flowers of the field
    we age, and weaken,
    or we get sick
    and then, Lord, we are gone.


    Yet, so what, I still trust in you.--Br-MD
