Prayer for Michael

by Catherine Fisher

now that you’re not
here anymore

that we can see

we can see you
were both here
and there
all along.

belonging to everyone
as we all
belong to everyone

and between the worlds
as we are all
between the worlds.

your life
    lived in offering
your body

    now grouped of grateful souls

make you here
and
there
and
always,

amen.
