the sun rose this morning with a burst of gold that drenched the room, at once wondrous and invigorating…peaceful and calm

a beautiful day…

i drew a breath and breathed out unspoken prayer, the knowing of what lay ahead…unfathomable in contrast with the morning’s beauty…gnawing at my soul

outside your window was beauty, but inside this room there came concern, and heartbreak…strength and fighting…and in the end a reconciliation and silent release

we left you there, well before dawn, the light rain a witness to the pain we felt. this bit of clay, worked by unseen hands into a boy…into a man…now empty and still, beat and breath now silenced

and yet…with no small comfort, we know you are free
