This fabric, this family

A thread is snagged
then pulled away

The design skews
off-kilter misshapen

It will never be the same
It will never be what it was

Restless always
the fabric continues

New patterns form
New threads
one and another and another
colors beyond imagination
vibrancy surpassing
the limits of hope

It is not the same

But it is they are we are
real and vital
as before



The darkness passes away
The empty spaces fill

The fabric holds

Love is stronger than death
