“That must be really hard” – they say.

“Yes” is the only answer that comes.

Each night I reflect and pray.

But words don’t always roll easily off my tongue.

My communication is limited,

My articulation fails to express,

The pain, grief, loss, loneliness, guilt, fear.

The sadness.

They are all – indescribable.

“How was your trip?” – they always ask.

“Great!” – my typical response.

What I cannot seem to muster,

What escapes me,

Are ways to describe the anticipation, excitement, joy, happiness, love, comfort, peace.

They are all indescribable.
