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 ! '

    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. No one is lonely on death bed.. believe me when you get there, God is gonna be thy comfort.. And thee will rejoice and wine up thy tears with smile. (Report) Reply

    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
