Hope remains…

No place to go,

No headstone,

No memorial,

Photos too painful,

Memories mixed,

Anger, pain, brokenness…

Condolences are muted,

Or unspoken

As there are no words or cards for this,

Only an acceptance

That what is

Is not what might have been….

Closure made unavailable,

Shock still surfacing,

Set off by chance encounters,

Brief conversations,

Tastes, sounds, and smells…

My dreams invent different scenarios,

Raw and real,

And they do not end well…

But I believe,  I choose to believe,

That this darkness will end,

That suffering will cease,

And a day will dawn

When I laugh and smile

With a fresh lightness,

My spirit will soar,

And what now feels impossible

Will be possible….

Tomorrow I will light a candle

On a new day

Once more, for

Hope remains

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, and 2 lovely granddaughters). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
