POEM — The Circle of Life

Image – leftofurban

Kind souls form
a circle of light
arms link, weave
in and out.

Sweet empathy
heartfelt and warm
Tears trickling down
my cheeks, hiding a
family wall of dismay.
Light came toward me now
Afraid to join them
Shock from John’s death
Melting away
Easier to be alone
Fear lurked in my heart
Voices calling me still.

Found the courage to belong
Sunlight danced in my eyes
Taking in the fresh winter air
Enveloped by the circle of life.
