What Can Be Said About Loss
A Non Religious Funeral Reading
What can be said about loss in love?
Those gaping wounds bleeding from aching spirits.
Rich libraries of memories calling from those cob- webbed shelves of the mind, of empty arms, and absent laughter, loving ways, sparkling eyes no longer there.
Of breakfast tables, lonely beds and favorite things gathering dust.
What can be said about love when loss rips the tapestry of a spirit apart, leaving threadbare a soul unraveling.
When child, friend, parent, or lover carries away with them irretrievably, a central, vital piece of living.
When nothing is ever the same again. When healing takes so very long, leaving such hideous scars.
