Sorrow


This feeling is like
no other

A shattered and
broken heart
pieces laying
at your feet
wonder that something
this retching
has happened
to you

Each day
waking up
immobilized
frozen with grief
tears making an
exit passage for the
sadness
tears that come
and come
and come

How does one
survive
this tearing of the
soul
the searing pain of the
body and
spirit?

God provides
hands that
catch you
as you fall
a safety net
of people
hope
to keep on
living
love stitching
the shreds
into wholeness

Achingly

slowly

you are
mended
not into who
you used to be
but changed
changed in ways
yet to be
discovered

Another chapter
revealed
born out of the ashes
