A Widow(er)s Journey by DKN
I have flown through the fog of loss,
Swam in the sea of uncertainty,
Waded through the river of denial,
Wallowed in the wilderness of despair,
Ran through the gauntlet of pain,
and walked the path of loneliness.
Still I stand;
And maybe one day…
I’ll fly through clear blue skies,
Swim in a sea of tranquility,
Wade through the river of life,
Wallow in the wilderness of wonder,
Run through pastures of peace,
and walk the path of love,
and find that there I stand…
basking in the warmth of a new and brighter day.
This was written by a widower who posted it on a board that I frequent. I thought it was beautiful and touching and I asked for permission to post it. May 2011 bring more healing to all who have suffered losses.
