Every Wednesday

Every Wednesday, I will post something about grief. Sometimes it will be a reflection on an aspect of grief’s landscape. Now and then I will share from my own journey of grief, because in the sharing of our stories we find strength and build a community of people that support one another.

There Are No Words

             for Ronan Rapp, age 2

There are no words
for this.
Arms do not comfort.
Tears do not calm.

There is only the presence
of silence,
and listening.

In this dark night,
a candle burns
that will not go out.
