Dark Hallelujah Epilogue

Dark Hallelujah Epilogue

As the flowers wilt
My angel, Lauri, fades away.
My tear filled eyes
See a bracelet
From one of her conference charges.
They see a DVD of CLEW Gospel,
Claude drove from Detroit
And picked up Eric in Chicago.
Wendy was already at Lauri`s side.
Lauri`s brothers and sisters
Stayed at the guest house.
Kevin drove from Montreal.
My eyes see the garage steps
From the sorority sisters.
My eyes see the visits and the flowers
And Jan and her smoothies.
My ears hears the calls and
My spirit feels the prayers.
My eyes see the ladies
From Spencer City Hall.
My ears hear her last choir practice.
I was told of the welcome home band
That met her after her first chemo.
I was part of the ritual
Of the family Walmart walk that
Included a crown, special pants,
Fake teeth, and bad make up.
I remember Kyle`s I love Lauri
Walked into the snow and
The picture he colored.
I heard the laughter and
Saw the tears and met
Lauri`s loving, loving legion.
I read the Book of Angels.
I remember her story
Of the smiling faces
She saw on the distant shore
When she came out of surgery.
She thought it meant she`d live.
She didn`t know
Those faces were getting her new home ready
Because the cancer had spread
And the doctors couldn`t do any more
Then what they already did.

She didn`t blame God or curse fate.
Her spirit stayed strong.
It kept healthy.
She whispered, "Hallelujah."
Because of her hallelujah
Maybe mine`s not so dark.
Because of her hallelujah
Maybe deadmanseeking`s not so dark.
