Thoughts on loss...

Loss is all consuming and heartbreaking. It's weight
is felt like a blast or explosion, it is heavy and tiring.
Hope is both lost and renewed all at once, sorrow
wells up like dusk, quickly and without warning. 
Hours feel like days, moments feel like hours, 
time keeps on passing as though it is a speeding
train and we are merely the opposite track.
 Standing by in stillness, waiting.
In loss we learn to remember, to stop and take
stock of what and who we have and we share love.
We share hugs, hope and our hearts. We share 
memories, funny and average alike. We appreciate.
We appreciate what is normal or constant because
it is, because we can and because we should.

 God turns my darkness into light.”

and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
