Grace in White Balloons

Today, the last session of Grief Share
what an amazing and giving group of people
releasing white balloons with a prayer
for me, the balloon read
Rick, Tad, John, Julie and Jim
floating with small gusts of wind
some of the balloons soared
others floated near us as if hovering
unsure if we were really ready to let go

It is in the letting go
we find we can coexist better
with joy and sadness
storing memories of them
in secret places
hiding them until we need to be reminded
that Love never disappears like the balloons
it hovers, lingering
until the wind caresses us with gentle grace
we can allow a little peace into our hearts and minds
Love will never be vanquished
