This is a tough one
and I wasn't even going to write
(didn't think I could even write)
until I saw the word and it hit so close to home
seems to have become our daily request as we've been
praying for healing...
waiting for it...
(for what seems like years now)
and just a few days ago
we suddenly lost our dear family member
(but lost just somehow doesn't seem like the right word to use here)
because we know...
and even though we
are grateful that
is finally over
our daily request still remains
because now we are the ones that will need
time to heal
