Haunted House

Grief is a strange companion.

Never sure where she will take you.

She opens doors to many rooms

in this haunted house.

You drift through a maze

of emotions too many to count.

11 years after,

After the rushed goodbyes,

and the

Take hearts,

And the

It is wells.

You still live here.

Bowing to the pain.

Raining rivers of tears.


Under water

you taste the salt

and wonder why

you still breath.

Then you hear him say,

You are the salt of the earth.

The light of the world.

Saved by grace.

So rise up,

Pick up your bed and walk.
