Rescue

Did you come
To the rescue
Of the one who
Lost his family
To the floods?

Did you come
To the rescue
Of the father
Who lost his
Daughter to
Cancer?

Did you come
To the rescue
Of the children
Who lost their
Parents to the
Quakes?

Did you come
To the rescue
Of the babies
Buried alive
In the slides?

So what little
Chance I have?
It’s just a
Broken heart!


(Poem addressed to God)

Comment Dear RD,
Thanks for commenting on my poetry. Nice to know your perspective.
The person who dies goes away....it's the misery of the people he leaves behind....his loved ones who keep grieving away....
A mother losing her baby, a child losing his parents, a wife losing her husband....the list is endless of premature deaths.

Comment This is a fair comment, except that we all have to die, even though we might have been saved an untimely death. The idea of being saved from death contains the hope, and thus the actuality of an everlasting life, being permanently saved from death, which must redeem all deaths, even untimely ones.
