When Doves Cry

Image: C. Parant

I hear a dove’s cry through the pane…
she coos her soft and mournful tune
about a loved one lost too soon.

This illness…was it preordained?
As you slip helm for higher realm
we‘re left to bear this earthly plane.

While waiting time to heal this wound
I hear the dove’s cry through the pain.

My dearest sister-in-law Susan is resting easy now from her more than 2 year battle with liver cancer. She earned her wings late this afternoon. My heart mourns, but also celebrates this beautiful woman whom I loved dearly was proud to call sister for the past 28 years. Godspeed, dear Susan....until we meet again...


  1. hugs.

    until you meet again.
    you give me tears and make me smile all at once.


  2. There are never any words that make it easier."I hear the dove's cry through the pain" Summed it up.


  3. God will take care. Prayers for her.
