Too much time spent
And then someone you love sings you to a fitful sleep. Songs of
Love in the face of loss. Mercy in the moment of agony. Peace in a time of turmoil.
A companion in the midst of it all
when you wake up with puffy eyes
when your heart is full of sorrow
when a hummingbird visits a shaded bronze feeder beneath the cedar tree
its furiously beating wings bringing a hazy ray of hope.
Today will be better.
