Edified Souls

by lynnkennison

Don’t take my sorrow

Don’t remove my pain

Thoughts in limbo

Heart inflamed

My aches are


Aided by ghosts

I cherish my pain

Treasure my sorrow


I relish my tears

They help me mourn

Cleanse the horizon

The world I know

I remember each one

Each one of my ghosts

Shadow by shadow

Edified souls
