Darkness wrapped in silence
Slinks sadly down my hall;
Recognized by only one
Sallow fear known to all
who love and hope to
Live again.

A pain unburdened

Capture hope once more?

Look, dear child, just east
The sun’s warmly gentle glow
Leaks forth light’s last release
No, not last.
Another with

For she to rise again
Health and robust;
Will wipe the tears from our eyes.
To welcome eternal we upon that far
Eastern shore;

Those who cannot come back,
We with them
though now no more;
This brief spell to end in delight.
Sleep at last this terror
Deep in this ashen, lonely
