Vigilance

candlelight
Once mourning welcomes darkness
Before grief burns to its end
Each day as bright as candlelight
When your heart won’t seem to¬†
mend

Yet amid such deep set loneliness
These times leave healing change
And remains of loving vigilance
Seeing through life’s pain

 

Dawn

thetorch

I see her smile in my dreams
Making up lost time
She whispers that she’ll never leave
‘Til dawn wakes up my mind

I wonder where this vision goes
And rather close both eyes
For another glimpse of heaven
Which seems fleeting like our lives

Even when I questioned my decision
That voice inside my head pled don’t let go
And while what is done allows for no revision
God I miss Lansing and the fall of snow
