Light and Rest

Two grandsons in my life

Lucas and Noah

Names so strange to me

At their first sight

Now they are five and three

Almost four

And joy to me they are

A heart’s delight


Lucas means the bringer of the light

Like early morning brightness

Welcome sight

And Noah means repose

Welcome rest

When day is done

And you have done your best


When life is done

And we are prayed to God

And mourners gather

Around the upturned sod

The prayers we say

Are prayers for light and rest

The blessings I received

In this my nest
