Veil of Acceptance

My time has come to escape that heavy cloud
which hung around me, suffocating life.
How, I ask, can this be?
Months of cruel pain and tears to fill an ocean
suddenly ease, giving way to calm and light.
My love even deeper for our departed soul
and, as smiles replace the tears
sweet memories fill my aching, empty  heart,
I give thanks for this gift of life
under the veil of acceptance.

To Live Again

How can we know how much we love,
When all around are living?
How deep the loss, when life is gone
And all around are living….
When, to live is to love
And those we hold dear
Are part of that everyday life;
With no thought of passing
Then, to lose and to break
And never imagine relief
From that everyday strife
That we may once again feel whole
