tonight: one for jose

“To hope means to be ready at every moment for that which is not yet born, and yet not become desperate if there is no birth in our lifetime.”
-Emily Dickenson

…hope does not disappoint…
Romans 5:5

Jose. He’s been sick. All the Mexico teams love him. A lot.

if you, weak
then strength maybe is what we see
when we look in your eyes
and cling to your smile
and grip you, small, in our arms for a while
and grip you, small, in our hearts for all time
if you, weak
then He, strong
holds you in His sight and
breathes in broken bodies
life and more life
this is your story:
hope. for glory.

(i kept staring at your photograph
after this trip, maybe my last,
and crying, prayed
and crying, believed
and crying, elated
for my heart was seeing
a little boy loved,
a little boy dancing,
a little boy well,
a little boy handsome).

for you, jose, if weak
then we hope
until strength we find
we hope.
