Raymond A. Foss Poems

Joining them in their anguish by Raymond A. Foss

We must remember the moment of their journey
on the day of Easter, before the certainty of his rising
a ministry cut short, followers dispersed,
a feeling of abandonment, of loss beyond measure

Into this moment, he comes, joining them in their anguish
in this moment of despair, not understanding
coming to them, walking with them
revealing all that had come to be
all that had been fulfilled in the path of his life

Joining them, lifting them, yet still unknown to them
he walked with them, bringing clarity
but recognition in the meal, in the simple act
the seeing him breaking the bread
in his offering of grace, enlightenment
