Not Ready for the Resurrection

I wonder if she felt this way–

not ready for the resurrection.

So much tumult

in such a short time.

So much pain

so little space to process.

 

I wonder if she felt this way–

not ready for the resurrection.

So easy to sing

Sometimes people leave you

Halfway through the wood…

But no one is alone

Believe me

Easy words to sing

until you are left halfway through the wood.

And there she was

halfway through the wood.

 

I wonder if she felt this way–

not ready for the resurrection.

So choked on tears

So heavy from holding

Is it any wonder she didn’t recognize him?

And then–only a moment–before she needed to let go

to see what this new life would mean.

 

I wonder if she felt this way

not ready for the resurrection
