sometimes

sometimes
there are no words
no words for the angels
who wear new wings
no words for the heart
that touched many lives
throughout many years
no words for those left behind
heavy with sorrow and loss.

sometimes
there are simply no words
for the life lived sweetly
with strength
for the life lived
and gone too soon.

sometimes
all there can be
when the last rays of sunlight
reach up to touch heaven
is the quiet deep knowing
that there is love in this world
because she loved.
that there is light in this world
because her kindness brought it.
that she will never be forgotten
because she is in our hearts
always.
~
for Tena
you are missed.
