Words rule my life. I understand their power to persuade, to elevate, to devalue, and to heal. They can make me feel as if I am not alone. They allow others to share their insight and wisdom. They help me define my feelings. They become a touchstone.
This poem by Donna Ashworth titled “Loss” is one of them.
I share it this holiday season. May it’s sure knowledge of loss and love be a blessing on you.
