Nine Long Years

June 24, 2018

Nine years — 108 months — 3,285 days – 78, 840 hours – and still we miss you, Beloved.


Nine Long Years

The stage is empty, lights are dimmed
The extras have all gone home
The screen is silent, scenery darkened
Yet, you remain
As so often

You gave it all you had to give
Your blood
Your sweat
Your tears
You wanted it perfect so it would live
And continue to give
Even after you’d gone

You’re tired and ill
You need to rest
A rest that never comes
Rest now, my King
You did your best
No one could ask for more
Your dawning upon a million hearts
Is only hours away

Still, our hearts call out
A silent plea
“Please stay.”

Here we are
Together, my love
Even after
Nine Long Years
You planted us a garden
As you sang so long ago
Of laughter
And of tears

Your garden thrives, Beloved
We are your flowers
Your trees
We remain in you
You in us
We are your seeds

Your shadow passes over us
A rainbow in our skies
We think of you
With gratitude
Thankful for all the times
We laughed
We danced
We sang along
We watched enthralled for hours
Grateful for all the little signs
Reminders that we are yours
And you are ours

Our hearts dear guest
‘Tho hidden from our sight
The years pass swiftly
We learn to live
To be alive in you
You live in us
Our Hero
And Our Guide
