Mourning / Memories
Sad in fits and starts Nursing broken hearts Gaping holes that will not soon be filled Lonely days and nights More wrong than is right Rivers of our tears that have been spilled Slowly we emerge From dark mourning and grief Warm in golden sunrise Sensing there’s relief In bright morning we see True love will ever be And our aching souls are calmed and stilled
Gentle memories Open as flowered petals To love’s warming sun
