A Poem

I saw this poem on FB the other day. I found it hard to read at first but I thought it was beautiful

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 spoke 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 things and memories of 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 hand 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 me.

So beautiful :star_struck:

Not beautiful it’s heartbreaking if only I could believe that I would go now to be with my darling not sit and wait in my grief I’m in so much pain I thought I was feeling better but I’m not snd this sort of poem makes me worse. I want it I be true so badly but I can’t believe it.

Unity man I have to believe, without that belief I would not be able to go on


I hope that is so true, my beautiful son said before he died I have to go now I said where he said death . He was so kind,and loved by a lot of people. Mind you if there is a god he has a lot of questions to answer . Loved to you all who are grieving .
