I hugged them tonight
kissed each one
and closed my eyes
filled with the bitter tears
these three things.
This cross you touched so many times
with your gentle beautiful fingers
by saying the silent prayers
by talking to God.
This white chess Queen was your guard
she protected your King and your heart.
This silent white Queen
with the power to keep you alive.
These uncountable words set in the Bible.
These words of God
full of faith, forgiveness and love
understanding and power.
This precious book of wisdom
opening your heart to our Lord.
Only these three things
please do place on my chest
when I will close my tired eyes
one silent day for good.
