At Margaret’s Grave

We stood beside her grave today

She would be 57

My son and I together

Margaret in heaven


I told my son what I believe

He knows it anyway

Not just because of faith I said

But everything points that way


Goodness truth and beauty

Justice too and love

Such powerful realities

Point to God above


And the wind blew strong this afternoon

Fresh and fierce and bold

Cleared the cobwebs from my head

A new year to unfold


The sad times are behind us

Life is good again

Margaret is in heaven

I know I know Amen
