I Believe

Oh, hear this woebegone girls prayer,
     words that in silence weep;
to drift among the stones and air
          in a place green and deep.

I wander mournful and forlorn,
     within a cloak of grief;
yes, am scarred by death's cruel thorn,
          that creeps like a dark thief.

I believe-   I can let gloom go,
     oh, yes I have the strength;
although dark stained with death's woe,
          I will journey any length.

On stones engraved are beloved names,
     I will write this despair;
that my poetic muse now claims,
          on white-   then, in a prayer.

I believe-   I can cut this thread,
     to find my tranquility;
on gossamer wings I leave the dead,
          and all vulnerability . . . 

     but, will I ever be free of their voices . . .
