at last

the graciousness of forgiveness
the surprise of blessedness laced in the sorrow
the simpleness of being
the ease of many years

the recognition of sympathy
the beauty of appreciation
the awkward knowledge of loss
the tenderness of urgency
the quiet wonderment of compromise
the familiar need and primal want for a mother's hug
