All Souls Day

Filed under: poetry — denisedayspencer @ 1:50 pm

For all the souls I pray, but one the most.
In name of Father, Son and Holy Ghost
my words rise through autumn’s chill.

I loved you with my dreams, my youthful hope,
my joys, my fears, my sorrows, but now those
days are gone, and here I kneel.

I cannot touch you now, or feel your breath
or speak to you, embrace, or smile, and yet
through my prayers I love you still.



  1. Peace of Christ enfold you.

  8. One of my Mexican students reminded me of this day in their culture. It has been a year since you wrote this. I pray the pain has eased and not grown.
