NIS (4 September 1915 - 14 April 2005 / Youngstown, Ohio)

This Bedside Vigil

A spontaneous glow of great mirth
encompass her features
a smile alit upon her lips

The usual matter-of-fact features
smooth out to reveal something
which plainly says

'What fools these mortals be! '

Not a dancing glee-

No mischief there
nor merriment, but nevertheless mirth,
maybe in her eyes
something that sees life

Who sees it whole, and still stands laughing
no wryness, no bitterness

And so we pray

Oh God-let it be
no-not another tomorrow
before she passes free
