Music: Feelings

She's Going Home

Her aging hands are folded
As she sits there in her chair
Another day spent all alone
And no one seems to care.

The years pass by so slowly
Her heart is filled with pain
Oh what she'd give to go back home
And see them once again.

Her name has been forgotten
The months have turned to years
Inside she's died a hundred times
And cried a million tears.

Someone is there to see her
She quietly waits inside
He gently beckons to her
Her arms are open wide.

She wanted so to see Him
And called to Him each night
The emptiness has disappeared
For now He holds her tight.

The nursing home is silent
No ailing voices call
No med carts, pills or nurses
No wheelchairs in the hall.

Her aging hands are folded
The grace of God she's known
With eyes now closed in restful sleep
He comes to take her home.

(Statement from Marilyn Ferguson)

I was formerly a Social Services Director in a nursing home and also did volunteer work once a week in local facility for 5 years once a week. I saw so many people like the lady in this poem.... just waiting day after day for a familiar face to walk through the door. Oftentimes, they were forgotten and there was nothing but idle days to fill their time. So many, I think, pray for the Lord to take them home. The lady I wrote this about was a real person and resident of the home where I volunteered. She was a very quiet pleasant lady but no one ever came. Her name was Evelyn and she would also sit with hands crossed in her wheelchair, oftentimes staring at the door. She was a Christian lady and one of my favorites but she seemed alone and unhappy. I can still visualize her to this day along with several other forlorn faces....... just waiting...... '
