The Arrival



Though they never knew each other,
they were rich in love and spirit each
with the blood of the other.

Born of earthly fathers, their souls
created by one, their times were different but
their arrivals were planned.

We mourn our loss and celebrate our gain,
they touched one another as they passed through the gate.
No words were said, no words were needed,
the divine love of the path’s crossed,
by Grandson and Grandmum, was all that existed.
