Sometimes a Note Travels Far

Six years into retirement
he sometimes wonders,

not often and not that
it bothers him at all

but from mostly six
years worth of gracious

distance, if it all meant
much and then his wife

delivered a note from
many moons before which

said, “I seriously was
considering suicide but

you told a story in your
sermon about a friend

who committed suicide and
simply how much you miss

him and it changed my life.”
He thanked his wife.
