Driving Through Darkness
Chasing the Immortal Word
Counting Out Our Days

Grief Unpacked Its Bags,
A Sudden and Unwanted Guest
With No Plans to Leave

Loss on Every Shelf
Sorrow in Every Drawer
Pain Beneath the Bed

We Could Not Quite Breathe
Wondering if That Moment
Might Not Ever End

But Time Does Still Pass
And Grief Turned Towards Us With
All Its Open Heart

And We Also Found
Among the Sorrow and Loss
A Shining Honor

The Consolations
Of Shared Memories, the Breath
Of Persistent Love

So It Turns Out That
This Life is not Perfect and
Grief is not a Guest

But Our Souls do Rise
To Every Occasion and
Our Hearts Will Reach Out

And We Will Carry
Honor, Memory, and Love
As We Find Our Way

Flung Forward By Time,
Willed Life Shattering Into
A Kind of Foundling

It Seems Impossible.
This is Real And That Is Not,
Then Followed By Now

Before and After,
Always Together, Always
Apart, And That Line.

Quarter Moon Rising,
But Still Caught in Grief’s Rip Tides,
With No Shore in Sight

He Has Gone Ahead
But You Must Tarry Here for
Some Little Longer

Between Now and Then
On That Long Bridge Between Loss
And Recovery

A Heavy Heart is
Still a Sacred Vessel Filled
With Enduring Love

Two Years of Driving
This Road In My Mind With You
Tonight Actually There

Shocking Accident,
My Presence Now, And Yours Then,
At The Tree’s Scarred Base

We Both Have Gone On
But Only I Can Return
And Wonder Why…

Forests and Sky Passing By
