ThinkstockPhotos-1010154834.jpgWhen the symbols of your life
Have been destroyed
You can do one thing only,
Continue on,
Meet the next day
And the one after that
Without fear, yet without hope.

Too much to ask
The Almighty replace
Exactly what you have lost
Exactly what you have loved.
Something small, a useless remnant
A used-up thing only you would
Cherish.
