sweetness

It’s these little things, they can pull you under
Live your life filled with joy and thunder
Yeah, yeah, we were altogether
Lost in our little lives

Oh, oh, oh, but sweetness follows*

Routines of

working and

making dinner

and class and league night

and

bath nights and grading and

parent/teacher conferences

and communicating through email or

the occasional

text

message

bumps seem like mountains in this

scheduled life

and joys seem fleeting.

We are happy for you

and you

for us

and we are praying

as are you

but our lives don’t intersect

like they should

even though

you are our family

our friends

our joy and support.

We live in the same circle

put in totally different

orbits.

Until…

a death

a birth

a sickness

a gain

brings us all to a stop.

We stand with each other.

Looking.

and

the realization of our

need

for each other

brings

sweetness.

*Lyrics from “Sweetness Follows” by R.E.M. (from Automatic for The People)
