Today’s post comes with a heavy heart. Last night, one of my aunts passed away from a massive heart attack. It was sudden and unexpected and has left us all reeling in shock.
I wasn’t initially going to post, but I felt inspired to write a small thing to dedicate to her memory and to my poor uncle who I know will miss her greatly.
Blessings to you and your loved ones. I hope the best for you during this Christmas season. Remember to love each other dearly, to never take a moment for granted.
He sat alone in the cold darkness
The house behind held too many memories of her.
Too many empty spaces that would never be filled
She had been taken in a moment, only a week before Christmas
And now this holiday that he had always loved would be marred by it.
She had always said that she would be the first to go
He should have believed her; she had always been right
The stars in the cloudless sky danced in his vision
Was she already up there, watching him, waiting for him?
He had to cling to faith, to cast his gaze heavenwards
To deny its existence would be to believe he would never see her again
Maybe if he screamed at God, He would take him too
But he could not denounce Him, not when she had taught him such faith
She would have to wait for him for now.
Until they could be joined again for eternity.
May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,
