Always There (Poem by Emma Marie Etwell)

When you remember me,
Please do not weep.
My body may not be there.
It has chosen to sleep.
I’m not that far away.
My soul lives on,
Looking down, watching over
You and everyone.
And when you feel sad
And life seems so blue,
Just remember
That my spirit has its arms around you.
And on those special days,
Times that you wish I could see,
That cool breeze flowing past you…
Well, that will be me,
So don’t be sad.
Have no fear.
God has taken me under his wing,
But I’ll always be near.
I still watch you
Every minute, every day.
My love and soul are with you,
And that’s where they will stay.

Yes, the words did bring me some comfort, I will read this whenever I am lost and need to feel reassured, which is often I’m afraid, yesterday was my 6mth mark, and although I missed my husbands presence dreadfully over Christmas, I was able to make it through the day with only a few moments where I lost it, but yesterday was awful, it affected me far more than I expected, so its thanks to people like you who post things on here that are read and do help, Thank you.
