Not all Will be Merry & Bright

Image result for dove

 

 

Daily I stop

moments turn to

minutes

remembering

those who have said good bye

with tear filled eyes

like mine

who walk in shock

of those they’ve  lost

in a blink of an eye

changed forever

never will it ever

be the same

remembering

a smile

laughter to loud

heart breaking

hugs

no longer being held

wanting

one more

just one

more time

tears fill the night

heart’s scream

why

these are those

who are on my mind

in my prayers

everyone

Who received the diagnosis

phone call

knock on the door

that changed your world

I write words of

glass like slivers

sharp enough

to draw blood

in hope

from my journey

down the road that

convey the truth that

His mercies are new every morning

surrender the pain

to the truth

we were all born to die

I have found this is how

we live now

knowing

those we love

are not lost

they have been set free

from the cage

released from this

shroud of dust

there is peace

in releasing

what should have been

looking back I see

golden threads

in the middle of the storm

sparkle through the darkness

lives are  changed

never to be the same

there is no going back.

painful breath of life

we go on

daily enduring

learning to live

this new awkward

life

from here I see that

while we can

let us

love like crazy

laugh too loudly

living audaciously

Making Memories

for  those we leave

when it is our time to fly.

A life well lived

is the  gift of grief

when we choose to receive.
