To Step Between

We see grief approaching

A heart we love

Our friend

Our child

Our parent

Our neighbor

Helpless to prevent the collision

To step between

And take the blow

Wouldn’t you know

That it passes through

We feel the ricochet

And our heart hurts too

We can sit there only

In love and patience and wait

Being present

In grief as in love as in laughter

Life steam rolls everyone once

In a while

Devestating

Sadness

To step between worlds

Yours and ours

To step between griefs

To step between shores

Across an ocean engulphed

To step between body and spirit

Between mind and heart

To cross caverns and mountains and forests

Spanning generations and years and moments

Bridges of love

Slippery stones in the river

We love and we risk and some days we lose

Heart

Hoping in time we can make room

For more love and more light

And feel less the pains of this life
