Bonia and the Healing

After his illness
I ran into Bonia at the grocery store.

He was still recovering
But walking on his own now

I made a deal, he said to me,
If I lived, I’d give my life over to God

We walked outside, both of us squinting into the sunlight
And if you would have died?

I’d have given my life over to God
He said.
