As I looked at them today
The glorious sight of beauty
Would surely fade away.
I thought of how to share these
In quite a different way
And so I bring this poem to you
Of what I saw today.
The white rose is the pureness,
Not of me ... but them,
Their value picked could never match
Pure beauty on a stem.
The red rose is the love I felt
When I saw them today
Or maybe twas the anger
If I'd taken them away.
The yellow rose was caution
That's what made me choose
To let the roses live there in
This patch of different hues.
The blue rose was the sadness felt
As I left them behind.
"But tis okay" I thought aloud
For even those who're blind.
Would sense the beauty that I saw
This place was heaven sent.
Twas not for me to disregard
The hope that this place meant.
And so I share with you today
This hard reality.
Would you have picked them for a friend?
If so ... then don't for me.
In The Light
A shadow of joy flickered; it is me.
I told you I wouldn't leave.
My spirit is with you.
My memories, my thoughts
Are imbedded deep in your heart.
I still love you.
Do not for one moment
Think that you have been abandoned.
I am in the Light.
In the corner, in the hall, the car, the yard -
These are the places I stay with you.
My spirit rises every time you pray for me,
But my energy comes closer to you.
Love does not diminish, it grows stronger.
I am the feather that finds you in the yard,
The dimmed light that grows brighter in your mind.
I place our memories for you to see.
We lived in our special way,
A way that now has its focus changed.
I still crave your understanding
And long for the many words of prayer
And good fortune for my soul.
I am in the Light.
As you struggle to adjust without me,
I watch silently.
Sometimes I summon up all the strength
Of my new world to make you notice me.
Impressed by your grief,
I try to impress my love
Deeper into your consciousness.
As you should,
I call out to the Heavens for help.
You should know
That the fountain of youth does exist.
My soul is now healthy.
Your love sends me new found energy.
I am adjusting to this new world.
I am with you.
I am in the Light.
Please don't feel bad that you can't see me.
I am with you wherever you go.
I protect you,
Just as you protected me so many times.
Talk to me
And somehow I will find a way to answer you.
Mother, father, son or daughter,
It makes no difference.
Brother, sister, lover, husband or wife,
It makes no difference.
Whatever our connection-friend or even foe-
I see you with my new eyes.
I am learning to help wherever you are,
Wherever I am needed.
This can be done
Because I am in the Light.
When you feel despair, reach out to me.
I will come.
My love for you truly does transcend
From Heaven to Earth.
Finish your life with the enthusiasm
And zest that you had
When we were together in the physical sense.
You owe this to me, but more importantly,
You owe it to yourself.
Life continues for both of us.
I am with you because I love you.
I am in the Light.....
He Only Took My Hand
Last night while I was trying to sleep,
My son's voice I did hear.
I opened my eyes and looked around
But he did not appear.
He said, "Mom, you've got to listen,
You've got to understand,
God didn't take me from you, Mom,
He only took my hand.
When I called out in pain that night,
The instant that I died,
He reached down and took my hand,
And pulled me to His side.
He pulled me up and saved me
From the misery and pain.
My body was hurt so badly inside,
I could never be the same.
My search is really over now,
I've found happiness within.
All the answers to my empty dreams
And all that might have been.
I love you so and miss you so,
And I'll always be nearby.
My body's gone forever,
But my spirit will never die!
And so, you must go on now,
Live one day at a time.
God did not take me from you,
He only took my hand."
I Believe In Angels
I believe in angels,
That they're always hovering near,
When clouds appear.
Protecting us from danger
And showing us the way,
Performing little miracles,
Within our lives each day!
Yes, I believe in angels
And I'm sure you do too,
And I'm convinced that angels
Are watching over you.
The following is not a poem,
But I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I do.
A Love Letter
How are you? I just had to send a note to tell you how much I love you and care about you. I saw you yesterday as you were talking with your friends. I waited all day, hoping you would want to talk with Me also. But I guess you were too busy. As evening drew near I gave you a sunset to close your day, and a cool breeze to rest you--and I waited. You never came. Oh, yes it did hurt Me--But I still love you and I am still your friend.
I saw you fall asleep last night and longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and face. Again I waited. I wanted to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts to give you and so much love--It's yours you know--just for the asking. I even have eternal life to give you. You see I loved you a long time ago. I loved you enough to lay down my life for you. I even let them hang me on a tree, put nails in my hands and feet, cut my side and hang a crown of thorns on my head--all because I love you.
I saw you get up this morning and rush off to start your day, I was hoping you would ask me to go along, so I waited--My tears were the rain. You looked so sad--so all alone. It makes My heart ache because I understand how you feel. See, My friends let Me down and hurt Me many times too. Oh, how much I do love you. That's why I'll go on waiting. If only you would listen to me. I love you! I try to tell you in the blue sky and in the quiet green grass. I whisper it in the leaves on the trees and breathe it in the colors of the flowers. I shout it to you in mountain streams and give the birds love songs to sing. I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air with nature scents. My love for you is deeper than the ocean and bigger than the biggest want or need in your head. Oh, if you only knew how much I want to walk and talk with you. We could spend an eternity together in Heaven.
I know how hard it is on this earth; When you stumble and fall I'll pick you up. And when the way is too rough for you to walk and bear all alone--I'll carry you until you feel better. I love you. Hey, I want you to meet My Father. He wants to help you too. My Father is just that way, you know. Just call Me--ask Me--talk with Me! Oh, please don't forget Me. I have so much to share with you! All right, I won't bother you any further. You are free to choose Me. It's your decision. I have chosen you, and because of this I will wait........Remember I love you!
