The Flowers of My Soul

my heart breaks
each time
i think of them
not knowing
for certain
but feeling
deep in my soul
one daughter
one son
my heart aches
a simple service
at last
sitting quietly
by candlelight
reading
from the bible
the priest
holds my hands
repeating words
meant to bring
peace and comfort
to ease the pain
guilt and sorrow
we write
their names
on a page
in the small
book of love
