A Thought For A Lonely Death-Bed - Poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

IF God compel thee to this destiny,
To die alone, with none beside thy bed
To ruffle round with sobs thy last word said
And mark with tears the pulses ebb from thee,--
Pray then alone, ' O Christ, come tenderly !
By thy forsaken Sonship in the red
Drear wine-press,--by the wilderness out-spread,--
And the lone garden where thine agony
Fell bloody from thy brow,--by all of those
Permitted desolations, comfort mine !
No earthly friend being near me, interpose
No deathly angel 'twixt my face aud thine,
But stoop Thyself to gather my life's rose,
And smile away my mortal to Divine ! '

    To die In Christ is to attain fruit of Life tree... Death is beautiful and no one is lonely on death bed...For Almighty so Powerful is with one at the time of death.. (Report) Reply

    Christ said on the cross, 'My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me? ' The line:

    By thy forsaken Sonship in the red
    Drear wine-press

    is a reference to his crucifixion. Since the wine is the symbol of Christ's blood in communion, the cross is the 'Red drear wine-press.' (Report) Reply
