“I will take refuge under your wing
until the disaster has passed.”
the greatest disaster of my life
is my broken relationship,
broken like a brittle old bone.
But it is not a clean break, Lord
because my heart hurts
for the suffering
caused by their old age diseases
and that they are dying alone.
Please have mercy
on these two foolish elderly people
who have pushed
their whole family away,
“Pray for us sinners,” Jesus.
