Shadow Day

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.
