OF LORD AND LOSS (a Sonnetina Tre)
by Marie Elena
When depth of pain has plunged to ocean’s floor,
And memories seem to marinate in tears;
When anguish tries to overtake your core;
When every conscious thought confirms your fears,
I stand in awe of what I see in you –
Your joy in Christ still manages to shine
Despite the flames of hell you’re walking through –
The fruit of lives abiding in the Vine.
Our Father fully comprehends your loss –
Your son now lives, because His bore the cross.
Oh, no. So sorry to be reading this one. You’ve captured the heartbreak beautifully, but your love and faith shines through. ❤
Thank you, my friend. But it’s THEIR love and faith that shines through. It amazes me.
Heartbreaking indeed – my heart goes out to all involved. Beautiful, Marie. ♥
Beautifully written, Marie. Heartbroken for this little one’s family.
Thank you David. Yes, unspeakably heart breaking. 😦
