A Note to a Corrections Officer:

Poetry by Jacqueline Jackson 

I missed you in church today, dear minister of God for Good, but I knew why you were not there. You were protecting me as you worked inside the gate. I sincerely say, thank you.

I knew that while I sang the hymns of the faith, the things you might have been subject to at that very moment could have been bringing you pain. I just wanted you to know that I was thinking of you. As I sang the words that brought comfort to my spirit, I prayed that God would assure you of His presence and lovingly see you thru. I sincerely say, thank you.

Later the preacher opened the Word of God and taught plainly from the pages, once again I thought of you behind the wall serving the Blessed Rock of Ages. I sincerely say, thank you.
