Commencement of Healing

Commencement of Healing

Will I ever again be able to write
To surpass the grief that blurs my sight
You always encouraged me in this pursuit
You'd be sad to know, it now seems so moot
What meaning do words really have
For a broken heart they are no salve
My tears still flow, my heart still aches
Drying on my face like blood which cakes
Their residual salt leaves trails of white
Encrusting my cheeks both day and night
Dear Ma, I'd love you to be so proud
To remove myself from this painful shroud
Your loss eats at my very soul
I wish to be once again whole
The sudden absence of your touch
Has left me lacking so very much
But I can still feel you - I know you're not gone
Your very essence gives me strength to go on
Keeping reaching for me in your spritual way
It will sustain me until I hear you say
I've been waiting for you my daughter dear
And you wipe from my eye a joyful tear
Temporary is the separation we face
Each one of us in a different place
God will make things right in His time
And until then, Mom, I'll still try to rhyme
I know that's what you'd want me to do
Thank you so much Mom, for being you
