love transcends

April 6, 2010

if i could
i would give you back
every sunday with your father.
multiply them by his love for each of you
and you would have him with you an eternity.

if i could
i would give you back
every embrace
carry the kisses on your forehead
to the infinite power
and you would never miss him again.

if i could
i would
hold time hostage
only so that you could tell him
what your heart feels
stronger
with the passing of each day.

i have no such power
and the hands of time are too heavy.

but i have been witness
to his love for each of you.
and those hands on the clock can never keep
his love still in a time and place.

his love for you transcends
time, space and even death.
and his love will live in your hearts… an eternity.

  1. Oh, SSSS, just beautiful. I always wish my offering of words could repair the heart when it comes to these losses. I never feel adequate. But you have helped them with yours.

    I love this piece. I’ve been doing a lot of work with children who have parents who are in prison and this piece makes me think a lot of them and their pain. Thanks for always living my spirits with your writing.
