Facing life after death

Before and After

A time before and a time after:

Before, I fell into your loving arms.
Before, I was held by your charms.
Before, I conceived your sons.
Before, I became consumed by your needs.
Before, I grew up in your world.
Before, I gave up me to be loved by you.

After your death,
I faced my loss,
My pain,
My fears,
My aloneness,
My own emptiness,
The depth of my own unmet dreams.

After you,
Slowly, gently,
Emerged me.
