  • Your face
    Once mapped out by my fingers
    A stranger flickering on screen to me

    Your voice,
    A distant memory
    Calls out around the world

    Your heart and soul
    A true black hole at one time in my existence
    Now requesting prayers, love and solidarity for these crazy days

    There was a time when you gave me everything but...

    I have the opportunity and the peace of mind to bless you anyway.

    And gratefully, hopefully, prayerfully
    That is what I choose.
