The Way Back

The Way Back from loss

A struggle each day

My heart torn in half

I wished he could stay

Alas, not to be

His job was complete

Fulfilled, he must go

Ancestors to meet

The Way Back from grief

I stumble and fall

In potholes of pain

Picked up to stand tall


New chapters to write

And places to see

More people to help

Adventures for me

The teacher is life

To live it, to learn

Move forward he says

My love’s at each turn

The Way Back takes time

To heal and move on

With wide open eyes

To see what’s beyond.


Excited and daunted

My soul will be fed

I know it’s the path

The Way Back I tread
