There is no grief like the grief that does not speak.
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The shadow of a day of remembrance falls,
Though it is still a day’s distance away,
My heart begins to open that door of grief,
Light the candle that will lead the way
To prepare for the deep-echoing reminder
For what is for others a day of celebration,
An adoration for the beautiful
Name that I’ve never been called.
