Is That You?

cloud of witnesses


We suffer and we grieve

when we lose someone whom we love

and it brings us comfort to believe

they’ve been called from above.


But often times I’ll wonder

in the things I do and see

if somehow they’re trying to let me know

that they are watching over me.


I believe more each day

that flukes occurring just by chance

don’t happen by coincidence

or by simple happenstance.


And I’ll find myself wondering

if each incident is a clue,

or if I should consider asking

the question, “Is that you?”


These occasions have begun

to somehow calm my sorrow and fear.

For though you’re gone, they may be your way,

of showing me that you are still near.
