AND if the lost made their return
from soil to land and within your life
would you — could you — accept them back
from death to dust and an urn

Surely first the shock and disbelief
maybe a hug if you dared – could you?
and all the adjustments you made — evaporate

The new lover what say to them —
who replaced the gaping hole within your heart
a new baby but not from him — what then?

The possibilities of a return, some sweet
but most a hidden poison — you think secretly
But in the end (their end) sprang new possibility

You live your life as best you can
especially when a lost is much to bear
and you pray — leave the lost within the ground

…sweet love sleep sweetly unto the light
