High Into the Blue.
Even though I break and shatter,
Even though I cry alone;
Even then I know you are with me,
Even then I know I am home.
How do I heal from this? Is it possible when I am so very lost?
My acid tears cannot quench the raging torrent of a red hot pain coursing through me.
This is a good sign.
At least it means I can feel something. It is easier to feel anger than deal with the naked truth of a grief that is as stark and as harsh as a wild, black sea.
Tossed about as I am, yet I’ve never felt more grounded that I ever have right now. I cannot understand it. The truth is I want to be angry but I can’t. So I have no choice but to face the grief in all its stripped down glory.
It is sublime. A thing of perverse beauty.
As I hold your hand darling girl in the dead of night, there is an unbreakable love surrounding us.
The darkest hour is before dawn.
Dawn arrives bringing with it sweet relief.
For there is always hope. There is always faith. But the greatest of these is
Quiet. Still. Colour.
Seranade me if you will;
Reach out and touch me in the cold beauty of this hour.
Heal me with your cool breeze, with your handmade colours and your music from heaven;
Stir me with your symphony and bring me back to life.
Fall upon me Summer Rain and speak to me with your promises of deliverence;
Softly whisper them to me so many times that I shall never forget them.
Then take my burden and lift me high into the blue.
Then I know that it is well
It is well with my soul.

Wow, Sherri, very powerful words and spectacular pictures! I am glad you still believe there “is always hope.” There have been times that was all that I knew – it’s enough for now, Sherri. Let trusted friend help you out of the pit. God bless you.
Thank you so much for your very touching words shared here Bill! So glad you enjoyed the pics! As for the words, they were written in a moment of quiet despair while I sat outside in the sunshine of my garden, so a stark contrast indeed. I shall indeed allow that help and God bless you Bill, in your ‘Unshakeable Hope’ 🙂
