THE SECOND WORD
"Today You Will Be With Me In Paradise"
births its questions,
in silence, rage or fear,
what awaits beyond the labors of love,
the fullness of grace;
Peace in its completeness.
The last tear wiped away
no small thing for those whose cheeks
are no stranger to them.
All shrouded now in mystery, in dream,
to hold a lover's hand and look, look deeply
and wonder what will be
when today becomes today
