This Place


This Place
by Carl Josehart

this place
a portal in time
marking memories
of a painful goodbye

we come for you
but you are not here

no ground could hold you
life and love
radiate from you
like spring
coaxing new life
out of grief’s wintry chill

memories of you are the
warm summer sun
beating down
the breezes blowing gently
ushering new life
into hope’s compassionate embrace

your place
is no longer earthly bound
or constrained by time
you are with us all
your memory
a portal to love
