LONELY ENDING (In Memory Of Paul Carty)

The stillness of a staring horse 
Residue of Autumn rust
On near-bare trees

November mourners

Gaze at the opposite
Shore of the quiet lake

Pondering what was witnessed

There by God's creation

The lonely ending

A wounded beautiful life

Pushed beyond the edge
Of no return

Into the deep emptiness

Denied the right to love

And see and touch
To hear and hold 

His one Beloved Child

And in the cold

Dark stillness of the dawn

We are left with unanswerable 

Questions, unspeakable

But this I know

That God is close
To the broken hearted

And always sends his Angel

To attend to the Gethsemane
Of our lives
