Hi All - I received this poem from one of my grief counselors a while back. I have it posted on my refrigerator door and every time I read it it warms my spirit but I always end up crying. I am sure that by the time I post this I will be in tears again, but it is so much worth sharing ...
As I Sit In Heaven
As I sit in heaven
And watch you every day
I try to let you know with signs
I never went away
I hear you when you’re laughing
And I watch you as you sleep
I even place my arms around you
To calm you as you weep
I see you wish the days away
Begging to have me home
So I try to send you signs
So you know you are not alone
Don’t feel guilty that you have
Life that was denied to me
Heaven is truly beautiful
Just you wait and see
So live your life, laugh again
Enjoy yourself, be free
Then I know with every breath you take
You’ll be taking one for me
See, I am crying again, just like I said ... but a truly beautiful prayer ...
Wow - yes, beautiful and yes, tears. :) Thank you for sharing.
That's beautiful, and I'm crying. Good crying. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
This is truly beautiful. Thank you for posting Miket. Now I am crying with you.
Thank you all for your warm responses. I guess there can be good cries among all of those painful ones. Thanks so much.
