Strange, Not Knowing Who

It is strange not knowing who they were,
with angels offering light, without a word,
when loss had tossed us from here to there. 

So many tasks, were done, assured.
For awhile, skies would lose the dinge of gray, 
with angels offering light, without a word.

When the fog of grief would shroud the day,
another gracious heart had hovered.
For awhile, skies would lose the dinge of gray.

Each day renewed, and what we uncovered,
with a freezer filled, and casseroles made,
another gracious heart had hovered.

There were signs of a mower's blade, a garden spade.
New strength in tandem, with despair, 
with a freezer filled, and casseroles made.

Each random kindness, helped us fare.
It is strange not knowing who they were.
New strength in tandem, with despair,
when loss had tossed us here and there.

    Very well written, Carrie. Times of need during disaster, and the love and acts of others is truly a beautiful thing. You conveyed this so well in this wonderful poem..... Robert.
