Poetry, Community of Tears

This is for the people who grieve.  I am thinking especially of those who live in Newtown, CT.  

Community of Tears By Faith Totushek

In the darkness when the ache spills tears When grief overflows at remembered years When the morning dawns and you’re still alone And enormous sadness pierces your bone
At the shadow of nightfall in the trembling pain When the scent of your loved one whispers your name When the memories image the screen of your eyes And remembrance informs the depth of your cries
God encircles your being with His loving embrace And bids you a glimpse of His tear stained face A compassionate God who shares your travail With a mighty love that will never fail
You can know you’re secure in Trinity’s hold Invited by Christ among sheep in the fold Never alone for the rest of your years A community of tears
