In Three Days

by Maureen King
(Lanarkshire, Scotland)

I only saw you yesterday

We joked, we laughed, we talked
It was good to see the old you back
Though it didn't last for long.

Today I saw you lying there
Fighting for each breath
Trying to stay with all your might
As I watched you come to rest

Tomorrow is a new day
You are in a new house
The Lord is at your table
And you have found peace now
