complexity of grief
ends and begins horrific pain
departs and returns so unexpectedly
unbroken ice on a river before the thaw
looks so quiet
ruptures and casts aside everything in its path
unleashes tears unstoppable
assured that He hears
our quiet garden prayers
Holy Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, Holy Rosary
His most tender and glorious Sacred Heart is our home
Jesus is always with us
His perfect compassion
He understands our circumstances
having loved so deeply
left with emptiness
mirroring the love
Our Heavenly Father feels for His children
His passion and suffering in union with our sorrows
He sends His angels and saints to help us
as together we course the narrow turbulent path
to the indescribable beauty of being with Him forever...
"His mercies are new every morning"(Lamentations 3:23)
