Our union 

Yesterday, I asked a friend who has experienced the grief that accompanies the loss of a spouse if she had any pearls of wisdom to share, and she shared this beautiful poem with me. How fortunate I am to have experienced this type of union during my time on earth!

Our union is like this: You feel cold, so I reach for a blanket to cover our shivering feet. / A hunger comes into your body, so I run to my garden and start digging potatoes. / You asked for a few words of comfort and guidance, and I quickly kneel by your side offering you a whole book as a gift. / You ache with loneliness one night so much you weep, and I say here is a rope, tie it around me, I will be your companion for life. -Hafiz

One thought on “Our union 

  1. Yesterday, I stopped at your parent’s shop in Albuquerque to get my wife’s and my annual batch of chili. Your dad shared a little information about your present state and he provided me the connection to your blog.
    With fast paced lives for most of us, slowing life down, reading a little about you and your journey, all helps to put other parts of my life in perspective
    Thanks you very much for sharing
    Sincerely
    Phil Messuri
