Psalm of Release

person shown from behind in gray hoodie walking along grayish blue shore
I ache for those no longer here
I try to hold them close
They slip away
I search for meaning in my losses
I question Life
I question You
I mourn and I remember
Can I heal my fractured heart?
I hear echoes of my beloveds:
Laughing, joyous, crying, bereft
Their happiness and their sorrows
Are now my own heart’s song
