We don’t have to worry about this one anymore,
adorned as she is
with the stars …
cradled as she is
by the rings around the moon,
wrapped in radiant beams of perfect love –
held in Divine Mother’s arms
like a jewel.
She tiptoed into our hearts
and out again,
a light too bright for this world
yet still here …
draped over our souls like invisible pearls,
pure and rich
with the mystery of eternal life.
we’ll never understand
who came for what and why?
who is holding who, really?
aren’t we supposed to do these things for our daughters?
who gives these great gifts that shatter our hearts
and open them at the same time?
What does our Creator do
with these glistening lives when they’re gone?
When will we feel her presence
and realize how close she’s always been?
How can we hold these achingly beautiful truths
in our hearts and keep taking
one step at a time?
Isaiah 53:4 “Surely He hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows.”
Have you experienced the loss of a beloved child? How is faith helping you cope with your grieving process? Comment below, and I’ll be happy to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Lord, fill in the dark spaces of our grief with an outpouring of Your Light. Fill our hearts with an increase of faith, hope and love to cope with our sorrow. Help us to grow closer to You and realize the presence of our loved one, who is with us always in a spiritual way. In Jesus name, we pray Amen.
