A small break- G returns tomorrow

A Letter To Heaven
by Laurie Kolp

I saw your kids
for the first time
since that day.
I was in church
and spotted them
across the way.
They looked sad
on what must be
a very dismal
Mother’s Day.
Your daughter looks
just like you
and your son
ironically does, too;
only they
appeared small
and frail,
(not much bigger
than two years ago)
scared and pale.
I hurried through
the crowd
once mass expired.
Found amid confusion
I gave them long hugs,
told them they were loved
and they smiled.
Then on the way
back to my house
a cardinal flew
in front of my view;
so I just want to say,
my dear sweet soul-
your welcome.
