i say the word out loud its sound dead weight falling lost in a vortex the echo muffled i say the word of what I have become i am no longer whole the part of me gone i will never recover i say the word to somehow befriend it be less afraid of the gaping hole i know will never heal Posted on November 24, 2020

To say the word is in its self a first step forward. The comfort I've drawn from in losing loved ones is a scriptural truth. They are in God's memory, at the resurrection He will call and they will answer from the death-like sleep, Christ mentions. Hope I have not offended you with my Bible hope,

Line, your poetry and transparency is a ministry to those who have (or will) face the loss of a beloved. To share your journey with us is a lovely act of selflessness. ~ John

All the words lose meaning and effectiveness when a state of life surges up within a human soul and you find no real understanding of such a feeling and endurance.. But I do feel a real compassion and a great belief in the power of your Love and insight to get through your time of bereavement.. Dear Line, May you find great solace in the depth and beauty of your poetry.. My deepest regards and blessings.
