In Memoriam...for the People of Newtown, CT

In Memoriam…

Heart to heart
In anguish reaches
Helpless hands clasp
Firm in prayer and
Yet stretch out to
Take another’s trembling
Hand in solidarity and love
Never more alike, never
More united than when
We stand in shock and grief
Bewildered by those things
For which there is no answer
Surrounded only by questions
For which no solution will
Be found in this life
Tears running down my cheeks
Blend with those on yours-
And hers and his and theirs
Forming a river of mourning-
Yet even in the midst of all this
Grief, we are borne along
On this current of sorrow
Shared, compassion’s life raft
Bearing us along together…
Today, tomorrow, to eternity
And so, in love, we remember…
