A very sad story entered our lives on one of the supposedly most romantic days of the year ,of nowadays crazy commercial world we live in, instead this day turned out the be a very sad one. My heart is with the ones who stay behind and are trying to seek their way to find justification in when a loved one leaves our world unexpected, unsatisfied, lost in the insanity life can offer us sometimes.
It does has to tell us something as everything what happens in our lives has to have a meaning and has to teach us something. To at least find the smallest justification of our grief. Love the people you love, today, Tell them better too many times that you do, than too little, today, Try to see what is in front of you which makes you happy, today, Let all your anger go, today, Love your life , today.
I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
“It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I’m not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said ” it’s me.”
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It’s possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, “I never went away.”
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew…
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over… I smile and watch you yawning
and say “good-night, God bless, I’ll see you in the morning.”
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I’ll rush across to greet you and we’ll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out…then come home to be with me.
