…to give ourselves into the love that will never cease to find us

Because I do not know

any medicine for grief

but to let ourselves


Because I do not know

any cure for sorrow

but to let ourselves


Because I do not know

any remedy

but to let the heart break,

to let it fall open, then

to let it fall open

still more.

Because I do not know

how to mend

the unmendable,


unhealable wound

that keeps finding

itself healed

as we tend it,

as we follow

the line of it,

as we let it lead us

on the path

it knows.

Because I do not know

any solace

but to give ourselves

into the love

that will never cease

to find us,

that will never loose

its hold on us,

that will never abandon us

to the sorrow

for which it holds

the cure.
