with prayerful reflection, of intimacy in the presence

There is a silence of the heart

that exists in empty nothingness

An unspeakably deep void

Where memories of a loved one

dwell, coalesce

For ever embedded in the recesses

of one’s mind

A timeless, untimely place, eternally

wanting, yearning, aching, numbing

A frontier-less space, vast as the cosmos

From whence eyes remain unlifted

Upon which ears stay unstopped

A motionless state of being, unmet

When all that is

dearly beloved and treasured




Don’t ask me

how I am

Do not disturb

the fathomless depths

of unknowable peace

Dare not approach

the intimate cloud of unknowing

Immortal, Invisible, Inaccessible

welling up

with a bowl

of profound intercessions

in perpetuity

Stay with me

Pray with me

Belay with me

When words fail

Where sentiments assail

Whether unspoken or unexpressed
