In beauty you danced

Alisa Blanchard 2012
I wake in the morning darkness
Reminded of one week ago
You spoke to me in dreams
“it is raining rainbows.”
I was full of tears
Wishing for my heart to heal
Little did I understand
It was my ancestors telling me
It is time
But I stayed in my pain
Wrapped in love
Not understanding the signs
I dove into grief
Being told it is time
To let go
And the call of the morning
The darkness of the fall
You slipped away
A leaf from the tree
In beauty you danced
Witnessed by those
Who watched in awe
Yet also remembered
How cold winter becomes.
