Gone is the Light

The following is a reflection on Good Friday written by Breanna Mekuly while visiting the Benedictine Sisters of Erie, PA during Holy Week 2015.


 

“Gone is the Light”

On that day, our world grew dark.

The clouds covered the sun;

The people cried in distress

When they realized what they had done.

 

“And now he’s gone!”

“What do we do?”

Such a mistake we have made.

How selfish are our hearts

When they call us out of love.

What is it we want?

What is it we seek?

 

Gone is the Light

From which to guide us.

The earth sits still

Breathing, waiting.

Gone is the Light.

 

Like losing our sight,

We lost our guide

Leading us to a life worth living.

What’s left for us now?

We’ve ruined it all.

 

No reason to smile,

No hope in our hearts,

Just bitter memories

Of our imperfection.

 

Because

Gone is the Light

From which to guide us.

The earth sits still

Breathing, waiting.
