sitting in church this morning
though not religious anymore
I joined all the people who came to greet
the deceased loved ones
for me – my mother in law
giving the sign of peace
I took the hand of one of her sons
and of that girl
who before the Mass stood in front of the door
begging for money
connecting with their fears
their doubts and the stream of questions
I thought
we will never know, we can only feel
and try to let go
enjoying the moment I wondered
how it would be
to spontaneously unite with everyone
and always keep connecting
