Echoes of a soul

There are times in life we miss lessons

That might’ve prepared us much better  

No one ever taught me the depths of souls

Can reach beyond anything we’ve known   

Or that intense reverberating emptiness

Follows in place of a profound love loss

And the fear of ever loving like that again

Is a new shadow we’re forced to live with

Or that your whole life becomes altered

With some beyond our human controls   

Or that loneliness takes on a new form

As ache in your heart, when you’re alone     

It’s written, Christ sends us a comforter

I missed the lesson some are called… back
