Remember (poem for Easter)

Remember (poem for Easter) (flower)
Remember 
Hands
I've never seen
and yet
have seen them
healing

Remember
a voice
I've never heard
and yet
I hear it 
calling

Remember
wood, blood
and love so deep
wounds
and our Lord 
Dying

Remember
the One
Numbered for me
Dying 
for me
and Living.

Remember
a dark grave
should have been - WAS - Mine
but held
Another.
You. 

Until 
You somehow
Sanctified
the emptiest 
of places
the tomb.

And
Filled
It 
With 
You.

    ~
Remember
that I
will never remember
the despair
the darkness
the horror.

Death,
separation
emptiness

You
Remember it
for me.



Linking up with Velvet Ashes at The Grove where the theme this week is "Remember"
