For Sarah

“Let her cry/Let the tears fall down like rain…”
And this is right.
You cry with all you have,
Just like He did,
Though his power
Reigned in the next breath.
What mystery this:
That this moment ever brief
Should cause Him grief.
And yet it did.

If the Lord of Heaven and Earth should declare
Such a wrenching loss an affront to his rule
By His tears,
Let your many more tears
Be your testimony of Him.
I join mine to yours,
So great a gift it is.
Amen, my sister.
