Be The Best.

Poem Night

I introduced you to my sister Grace Wulff and the work of New Hope previously in this blog space.

Their summer newsletter has just been released and Grace gave me a copy tonight which included a poem she wrote about Chris a short time ago.  Here it is.  Thanks Grace.

Christian

I saw a leaf fall.

I could not do anything but

watch it descend.

And it was gone from my sight.

It is spring.

How can this be?

The leaf was bright yellow

full of life, I thought.

But it dropped to the ground.

Christian, you are too young to die.

I am so sad by your passing

from our life to the next.

And yet the leaf gives life still.

It will nourish the soil, yes, the soul.

And bring gifts for us all.

Your death is not in vain.

– Grace Wulff
