Your cloak

Cover me with compassion

in your cloak of protection;

shelter me from the

harrowing shadows that

lurk in the corners

and come out to remind

me of the horror of my loss.


Bury me in your comforting

warm and close embrace;

lift me out of the darkness

of grief’s despair

and let me see,

through the opening

in the cloak of your care,

the possibilities reborn

in another day.
