The minutes nearly stopped when the recollections appeared,
Fleeting images of a child chasing clues to find
The hidden Easter basket.
A treasure hunt!
It was on.
Today, driving in the dark,
The memories were sure and swift –
One after the other, in rapid succession.
I know the longing, the missing will one day cease.
We will be together with laughter and joy.
My dreams create a picture that is elusive, yet precious.
Even though it is not so today,
These recollections will melt into a new reality…
Because of Him.
A perfect eternal present, replacing the past –
Hidden and held in His endless heart,
