At Least She Found Peace

We’re all gathered here
in this place we fear
where we can’t find a tear,
but at least she’s found peace.

It’s sad, no explanation in a note,
guess that’s all she wrote…
what more to say about her, I don’t know,
except she’s now found peace.

If we’d only known her,
but her memory is largely a blur
‘cause her depression made us squirm,
so, thankfully she’s now found peace.

Let’s bow our heads and remember
how we wish she’d tried a little harder
to carry whatever bothered her,
and then we’ll sigh and recall she’s found peace.

And finally, as we honor a memory blurred
with continued silence and empty words
we’ll depart a callous herd—
without knowing that from us she’s now found peace.

  2. Wow this is powerful and real Christina. Even though some of us do not fair well in this life in all the challenges we face. I guess we can find comfort knowing. We too shall find peace one day.
