These gifts

For all that seems unfair, too early, too awful,

draw in us fuller breaths.

When there is so much of our selves at stake,

be our vision.

In our anger and the depths of our sorrow,

keep us close, keep us still.

As we are torn apart by grief,

bring us back together.

And when we are ready,

help us extend these gifts to others.
