A good year for the roses

 

16

 

A year of loss

A year for loosing

What are these tsunamis of grief

These earthquakes of mourning?

What will they teach us?

And who will be made better?

Will he become a more loving parent, husband, son?

Will she forgive small slights more readily?

As always seems the case

More questions raised than answered

Lord puzzlement reigns over

His eternally lost subjects

And until the very last

Not one of us knows

When my time comes

Will I die in dignity with grace

Or fall screaming into the void?
