Does your heart break?
Do your eyes water?
Knowing that what you imagined
what you hoped
may never be.
Tell me what do you do then?
Locked in the upper room
of your being
Scared to emerge into the reality
of what is.
All may be lost in this moment.
And what remains?
A call you thought you knew
A love that has seemingly disappeared
All is lost, including you.
How then do you begin again
When the call doesn’t sound like you remember
doesn’t feel the same deep within your soul
When stripped bare you take account of what’s been lost
Pause and hold it there.
What is worth it
What does your heart tell your head
not vice versa
For this is the realm of the heart.
Real life felt- lost and found.
There are no solutions
only questions or substitutions
the choice is yours
What remains we must engage
or the tomb wins out
Lost only to the one lost enough to find,
grieved enough to feel,
loved enough to behold
a body risen, a call revealed, a hope revived.
