Sitting In The Nursing Home

Post by norman » Sat Oct 31, 2015 4:32 am

Sitting In The Nursing Home

As they sit in the nursing home
Holding hand-in-hand
Praying for each other
This woman and this man

They feel so alone
though they are at the edge of town
They hardly hear a noise
Though there are people all around

The nurses come in the room
To see if they can help them
But it's just a matter of time
Before death comes calling them

The doctors have no idea
How they lasted this long
But love has kept them going
And kept their love so strong

They are well into their ninties
And love has carried them along
And with their faith in God
It's helped to keep them strong

Now their bodies are weiry
Their bones are fradgile too
Their minds are giving away
They can't do what they used to do

she used to be a nurse
In the hospital down the road
He used to drive trucks
Carrying the heavy loads

They lived out on a farm
Down a gravel lanes end
They were the happiest there
They had all kinds of friends

But now their days are numbered
Like the clock up on the wall
sooner or later death will come
To find us one and all

late that night death came in
And took them to Heaven on high
But they was the lucky ones
They got to see paridise on high

So don't say you wasn't warned
Of what is coming for you
For sooner or later death will call
And that my friend is true

Norman,
This is so Good but so sad! After losing my Mother this year I am not a fan of Nursing homes. And I liked what Brenda said we have Heaven. Not exactly those words but I know what she meant. You are an Awesome writer.

God Bless You Eva
