Emotional Hangover

Too much time spent
agitating
cogitating
ruminating
agonizing
reliving
regretting
weeping
sobbing
yelling
screaming.

And then someone you love sings you to a fitful sleep. Songs of
mercy
grace
peace
hope
redemption
love.

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 bringingĀ a hazy ray of hope.

Today will be better.
