Light of the Whirled…

(For my parents. RIP)

 

I remember swinging

between the both of you,

smiling,

feeling loved and secure.

 

You were no longer together

even then,

but I felt no loss in that moment.

 

And when my own small children swung

in that same manner between their mother

and me,

many years later

I saw the same smiles,

and thought of you.

 

I hope you’re together now.

I hope you’re swinging between

the arms of God,

and you’re both smiling.
