Fuller Valentine

We could not have thought of the gods
Back then or made them up as if
To reverse the obvious sequence
Can’t you see that
Though often we confuse them
With the so-called dead anymore
And struggle to re-imagine them
From scratch full of doubt
And a hidden hatred for them
Even as we search for signs
Of their continuing existence
They too have grown fuller
Meanwhile with more zest for life
Matured by sacrifice and valor
