Holy Divorce

By Paul Marinkovich*

An official end to our relationship

an illusion our unhealed minds might see.

But although our bodies seem apart,

you still share relationship with me.

The courts, the fighting, the anger,

damming effects felt each day.

All our loving times and thoughts,

appear somehow hidden away.

Love’s beautiful melody and prose

 silenced by your wrong and my right

stands hidden behind our walls of stone

left unseen in its brilliant light.

I long to depart this battlefield

and ask God to lift me above

and realize now my forgiveness of you

is the only path to remember His love.

My once stone wall fortress

now but a veil covering your face

remembrance of a groom unveiling his bride

brings me back to a most miraculous space.

For by seeing only your innocence

I witness the face of Christ in you

and realize that all the love we shared

was all that was ever true.

As each massive stone falls

and our illusions crumble to dust

I see our minds together as one

for in forgiveness we have placed our trust.

A beautiful journey without distance

is what our connected minds share now

gently helping us to remember an ancient time

when we managed to get it right somehow.

I bless you my darling always

as our bodies travel a different way

our minds remain in a Holy Relationship

that can never be taken away.
