My Sister Was Sick

A dear sister in Christ recently handed me this.   Her sister in the flesh had passed away the day before.

My sister was sick.
I intended to call.
I was waiting for the right time of day.

My sister was sick.
I forgot to call.
Then, at evening, the time slipped away.

My sister was sick.
As I slept that night,
God called her home.

And I could never make my call again.

God, help me that when
My sister is sick,
I’ll take the time,
And not have the heartache to bear
Because I didn’t call.
