To be fully human

What have I learned in my grief?

That the heart not only can
but should
hold both overwhelming sadness
and joy

That to be fully alive and fully human
is to praise that capacity

Knowing it is the only way to continue
in this world

without letting our love
for the departed
slip between our fingers

and lodge in Time’s old broken clock.
