Surpassing Understanding








When someone difficult dies,

How do you say goodbye?

I remember only lies,

My eyes remain dry.


What do I mourn,

What was or should’ve been?

Get beyond the scorn,

Rid myself of sin?


I need an answer

Much more bigger than me;

Hate spreads like cancer,

Love sets us free.


Each day we wrestle

Will never end all strife,

We’re just the vessel;

Love gives us life.
