I try to think of something comforting to say

I know this will be a hard time for you
I wish I could think of something to say
I wish there were something I could do
Some small truth I could convey

That might provide some modest comfort
That might ease in some small way
The ache and emptiness in your heart
That might help you through this cold December day

Sadly, nothing comes to mind
I can only hope that altogether
You will be a family and will find
That in each other’s love there is a tether

That will bind you each to each
And whether in silence or in prayer
Your communal knowledge will surely teach
That whomsoever is not there is there

For Maureen
