November 1989

 

For the Geleynses

 

once long ago

when shadows danced

our prayers flew to God

lest the shadow of your lives

turn leaden

 

years passed

tears came

as did joy

 

and now

the dance moves heavy

too many tears

for any to bear alone

laughter only a dream

freedom from pain

and fear

a ghost

blown by autumn winds

harsh and cold

and twisting quick

 

again our prayers ascend

to the heart of our life

that yours may be nourished

that the hands that formed this earth

and hold it

strengthen you in the storm

so wind may blow

fierce and cold

and not harm you

so you will remain

with us

in Him
