Near Death

All the happiness's of her life having long since past
As all of her own lots in this life have now been cast
Seemingly so all alone in that dark and cold hospital room
Most of you too would get this sudden sense of doom

But she was not alone on that particular day
As Father Shapiro stopped by all in a moment to pray
Opening the blinds and so filling the room with light
As all the trees and birds were now revealed in sight

Yet still not a movement of sort or any such kind of sign
As Father blessed her, noting, "Mary, all will be fine"
Blessing her body with Holy Water while saying a prayer
I could just sense the Holy Spirit emanating right there

No she was not alone on this much discernible day
For the Lord Jesus had come and He had had His say
For that room was just filled with His Glory and all of His Grace
And Mary knew His Story for I could see it on her face
