I had

I had wanted her to come

Back and envied others for

Having their own version

But I prayed for them as

God gives me glimpses of

Them having or undergoing

Similar episodes of loneliness

She misses her absent father

Whom she can’t save from

Dying, trying to be happy

She’s crying, he’s weeping

For his family, I weep together.
