Falling in all

Last night I dreamt that you hugged me

I still felt your warmth when I awoke


I don’t know what I did to alienate you


Some people carry grudges to their graves

separating the good people from the bad

Some hatreds span generations

blood spilling beyond one heart


Maybe when we die we aren’t segregated into heaven and hell

but instead are reunited

Old wrongs are forgiven


And on that boundless plain of oneness

above all the petty grievances of our momentary lives

we gaze with love into each other’s eyes and wonder

Why were we so angry?

  1. OMG Sean — That is so insightful and universal! Thank you — for the illustration, too.
    Just “thank you”. Joan

  2. Sweet tender verse. When I’m done weeping I’ll leave another comment. We’re all just walking one another home.
