fourth friday in lent

“for they all saw him and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, ‘Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.’”  Mark 6:50

in our worries,
let us not overlook you
in the person shopping
for all her neighbors;
in our terrors,
let us not fail to notice you
in the health care providers
working extra hours;
in our enforced solitude,
let us not look past you
waving at us across
the courtyard, backyard,
hospital hallway, grocery store,
using sign language to tell us,
‘i love you’
