The Dream
Last
night I dreamed
I found you
and you had not changed
you were there
broken
on the floor
wrestling with the
same chemical demons
and they were winning
still
but I had changed
and I took your face
between my hands and when I
looked into your eyes
all the past was
gone
and I felt no anger
no betrayal
no judgement
and the scars, they had faded too
I felt nothing but
love
and sadness
and I heard a voice say
Talitha Cumi
but I woke
before I could see
if you would
rise

    Oh my land, RissaRoo! What a poem.

    We just studied this “Talitha Cumi” portion of Matthew so this hits a fresh spot. We have a family friend named Talitha – isn’t that God-grande?

    How are you? I’ve missed you like super duper crazy! Still hoping to see you this Aug – hey, that’s in a week. Call me.

    Love &
    Blessings,
    Darlene
