Tis a Fearful Thing

'Tis a fearful thing
to love what death can touch.
 A fearful thing
 to love, to hope
to dream, to be
 to be,
and oh, to lose.

 A thing for fools, this
and a holy thing-
a holy thing, to love.
 For your life has lived in me,
 Your laugh once lifted me,
your word was gift to me.
 To remember this brings painful joy.
 'Tis a human thing to love,
a holy thing to love

 what death has touched.

  1. Oh my, I am so sorry for your loss. I have you on my blog roll and for some reason it won't show me when you update, so I peak in at times to check. I was just so very sorry to read this. I know a strangers tears can't help, but just know that this stranger has cried f0or your loss and I do pray you will heal and have only the wonderful memories in place of the hurt.
