unexpected.

Like a punch to the gut
the weight of missing you
hit me.

As I thought about life's blessings
and unexpected friendships.
I prayed for you,
not even knowing you were out there.

And God delivered.
A perfect fit.
A bright spot on hard days,
a positive outlook amidst my cynicism,
shared enthusiasm and excitement,
love for those I love,
hours in the car
and fudgy brownies

So unexpected was the blessing of our friendship,
and then,
the loss of you.

Your writing is so beautiful Claire - your pain is palpable and real. I hope you find comfort in getting heart into words and words onto page. I wish you COULD offload your pain and that baby for a day and walk upright and easy. Soon enough that day will come. Thank you for letting other into your soul for a bit. May you be blessed today.
