Remember the Life
By Kittie Brown McGowin 
I once thought that my only link to you
was my grief;
I couldn’t let go.
I knew if I did I would lose us both.
But one day
when I couldn’t take the pain anymore
I decided to try.
So slowly and carefully
I let go of my deathline to you
and I was surprised to find myself
being held by God.
Little by little, step by step,
I learned that I didn’t need
to hang on to the death
to remember the life.
What a joyous discovery!
