Lent 39 (Good Friday)

Today I have lost
what cannot be regained
And all the powers of the gods
cannot bring him back
And the grandest music on earth
cannot return him to me

Do not speak your condolences
or your pieties, not today
Death has taken away love with numbing finality
and there are no words to mend that pain
Say only to me that you feel this loss too
and let us cry together on this holy day
