Remembered Words

Remembered Words
Easter 6; John 14:23-29
I wonder, if I saw the end in sight,
what words of comfort, stretching like a rope
across the threat of absence, would hold tight
the truth that helps us walk the slippery slope?
At that Last Supper, Jesus knew the plight
that day would bring. He tried to offer hope,
reminding them that God is love and light,
and if they love each other they will cope.
Did they remember that on bad Friday?
He promised peace, his peace that calms the heart,
and said the Spirit, guide to show the way,
would come to them, although he must depart.
I wonder in their overwhelming grief
if those remembered words brought them relief?
