poetry of grief within a Jewish holy place

Yahrzeit

I kindle a soul light for thee this eve,
when dawn awakens, I'll be able to see
a shadow of thy face ere mine eyes
as was before and shall always be.

Each morn I gather me to this place,
wherein I've heard G-d resides.
I search but Him I have not seen
His face as from Moshe hides.

A gray beard weeps over an ancient folio bent
In whom there yet burns the holy flame.
"Why art thou here too, Rebbe?" I ask.
"The reason, my son, is like yours the same."

"A lifetime ago I've forsaken him not,
Like you I won't let his memory to fade,
I am here to assuage a young father's pain 
so that aloneness not make him any more afraid."

Deeply moving. Exceptionally well done.

Alan,

This is so beautiful, it made me cry. We can never let go, can we? I think that is a good thing.

Be well,

Micki
