How many sunshines

And rainy days did I miss

Of your daily life?


In this pretty urn

Is all that remains of you.

I wonder which one.


The one that smiled

In my memories of her

Or the scowl and frown.


Did I really see

The person you paraded

Or the masquerade?


Will I ever know

The genesis of your smile

Now hidden away


In your everyday life

That I missed all these years.

I said: “I love you!”


Now I’m not so sure.

We trust

Beyond our inhibitions

We believe

Surpassing our illusions

We cry

Regretting our helplessness

We dream

Dismissing our reality

We smile

Remembering our vulnerability

We laugh

Surprising our mystery

We pray

Acclaiming our spirituality

We love

Pursuing soul connections

We rise

Transcending our suffering

We fly

In true and perfect harmony
