Evidence Of Longing – A Poem for Lillian

October 13, 2014 | 9 Comments

We’d tried for over three years
Then entered an improbable space
Twice we saw her heartbeat
Once we saw her still
It took me awhile to cry

Three years later
To mark the learning of her demise
The cloth which covers my heart
Has slipped
All the grief is spilling out

I can say what I know of pain
How it has changed my life
To learn to accept that which
Just cannot have happened
How could this have happened?

Being pushed continually to my knees
By waves so tall and wide and blue
Is an honor
Truly, I love and need and want greatly
My never-over-her is testament to that

Tonight’s post was inspired by the Write ALM prompt, lullaby. I tried to write this morning and couldn’t find anything but tears. Tonight, though, I am sharing a song which brings comfort.
