A Way Through Tears
In seeing those we covet most
laying as we never knew
we rail against that which altered life
removing from our societies
a missing link to us
We face our fate
not seeing the passing
but on the face of the fallen
a strangeness there
noting that in falling
something fell out
that which remains is missing a spark
tis natural to wonder where it went
or if being snuffed out
a candle in the wind
young or old
it hardly matters
though in the former one more charge is leveled
shouting at the universe at the injustic
why the living should be older then the dead
Physics teaches continuity
that nothing ever ceases to exist
yet if that were so
why would those who changed and were not distroyed
not returning to fill the void
is there so much more they see now?
so much to do that excludes our felicity?
Would they forget us so easily?
now to the end of rationality we come
to the place where there are no sane answers
the doctrines of man that have polluted any hard evidence
The sacred documents most respected
tainted by the hands of evil
our loss more poinient
say as I could many things
things i know
and from whence I come
that which I am
it wouldn't matter.
But this I say
there is more
they who have left cheer us on to find it
joining them in the self same search
a yearning to live again
without the attending problems
that caused them to leave this life
in places where they happily wait
to watch us follow them
and enter into that self same state of grace.
