beautiful tonight


these

days when

it all bleeds out

running across the floor

and the maid with her bucket

can't keep pace with the tears

that flow from your tired eyes

while you drown there

in the river of your life

and I stand helplessly

watching you go

and the damn sunset is so beautiful tonight



if you would just look and see

The picture belies the reality of the situation. What a total feeling of helplessness. I can only imagine the pain in your heart and soul as these words spilled out. A million words can pour out of my mouth right now but none, I fear, would be of much comfort. Hopefully you know that you are both in my prayers today. ((xxx)) (tears......)

Yes, indeed. How the catastrophe and the beauty can coexist calls us to somehow keep enough balance to see both sides.

I cannot ignore the devastation except by taking leave of my senses. I can easily ignore the beauty, but I do so at my peril.

I pray for a way through for us all.
