Transition-Part 1- Middle Old Age

Poem By Mary Mc Creath

I am 75, a number
That is very large
When linked to the age
Of a human.

I feel full of joy
And wonder
That life has
Bestowed this
Amount of years
On me.

The beginning of these years
Is in a distant past
Starting in 1936
In a hospital
In Maryhill, Glasgow
Scotland

Between then and
Now which is
2012 and
in Hyde Park, Johannesburg
South Africa
My life has expressed
itself in countless ways.

Christ, may all that is you flow into me,
May your world and cosmos, be my food and drink.
May your Alpha and Omega, be my life and strength.
Christ with you at my side all has been given.

For Joseph

Go gently into that bright light
Dear brother.
Embrace it with your
Closing eyes.
