The Coldest Winter Ever

Winter

winter and loss

and

and

and His death

spring arrives and i’m not ready for sun and new life

renewal

not yet

a little while longer with this sorrow

tomorrow let it be spring.

let there be light. only, wait until tomorrow.

God please, allow me this whispered prayer.

my heart buried just below the surface of ice and snow, cold and darkness.

waiting.

————-

Still

She closes her eyes, letting the quiet, the silence envelop her.

Waiting. She is waiting to see if life has some secret to tell her.

Not a word.

He is gone and she remains…still.
