November 1983

 

Crosswords

Cried out at the end

Of a life lived well

A cry of despair

Resounding through the ages

For all mankind to hear

And remember that awful cry

“My God, my God,”

“Why have you forsaken me?”

 

Remember

It was said once

And never again

Unless by choice of ours

 

That second time

it would not be the

forsaking of Jesus

but of a fallen soul.
