AND if the lost made their return
from soil to land and within
would you — could you — accept
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 —
The new lover, what say to them —
who replaced the gaping hole
within your heart?
A new baby but not from him —
the possibilities of a Return, some sweet
but mostly a hidden poison — you think
But in the end (their end) sprang
a 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!
