Remembering Kobe Bryant

A prayerful reflection

Nothing but net.
Nothing but dread.
Nothing can undo the news.
Kobe’s dead!

We are in shock.
We are in grief.
We are reminded
at best life is brief.

Not just for him.
Not just for her.
Not just for fans.
Life is short. It’s a blur.

So we take time.
So we take stock.
So we take note
of our world that’s been rocked.

Lord, speak!
Help us listen!
