Not only how to carry
Your own deep sorrows with dignity
But to make room
to hold the sorrows of another.
You were not afraid of annihilation
Not alarmed by a fresh dismemberment.
You were the centrifugal force of love
That holds the accelerating universe
In a wide offering of ever-expanding joy
Amidst the pain.
You are not destroyed.
With the four directions of the Holy Cross
There is no place your passion does not reach
Because you stand with Him.
And we who dare
in microscopic measures
to accept the task
Desire to stand
In fresh alignment
With the one who chose
