For Mom and Dad who both died this year
Empty as grave
on resurrection day—
happy for the risen,
but hollow
and abandoned.

Enduring as marks
on hands and feet—
relieved of iron nails
but scarred
as eternal reminder.

Thus excavated, pierced,
filled, healed,
I wait and watch,
torn in two
till Easter morning.
