Sister Shut In


Their hand

And listens

They need to talk

And need to be heard

The nun sits quiet

Sending out the petitions

Of those who feel they have lost hope

In silent prayers to a higher source

A heart is comforted and two souls blessed

Aunt Jean

She believed in God

Understatement of the world

She belonged to God

Everything she did

A demonstration of love

Faith and devotion

For eighty-nine years

She let her little light shine

So, we could find God

Today, God found her

Welcomed her to her new home

She’ll shine forever
