Four Years Ago Today   Leave a comment

Seated so serenely, surrounded by the evergreens

Blonde hair loosely swept upward as though arranged by an angelic breeze

 

She reads her letters – obviously just retrieved from one of the many silver boxes

Stacked in rows, like postal houses under shingled cover

 

Letters sometimes come, still addressed to you

Where you once reached for items demanding your attention – four, long, years ago

Today I see your Spirit represented by this woman whose beauty, like yours, cannot be hidden

Behind black rimmed readers, blue jeans, and a carefree flowing blouse

 

Today I catch a fainting glimpse of you while reading

Not letters, but our hearts, that still daily do address you

Hoping that our love transcends what we can no longer see, or can embrace

 

How grateful, so grateful, for your unexpected appearances

Our evidence of you, and our Creator’s love and grace
