"On Hearing Of Our Holy Father's Sickness"

A poem by John Hearn.

On Hearing Of Our Holy Father's Sickness

Pilgrim in white,
How many roads have you walked down
For the gospel's sake?
How many pangs of hurt and sickness
Offered up for this dark world?
Now as gray darkens past twilight
And the first stars witness against
The black of a day's dying,
I fear that you will soon reach your pilgrim's goal
And take the bit of my heart
With you
That won't wait for this slow son of yours
To reclaim it from your hand.
