The Visitor (K.M. Edmed)

A robin came to visit me I shared with him my sorrow
I told him how I’d lost you and how I fear tomorrow.
I told him all about you, how you’d left me all alone
How much I miss your loving heart, the place I called my home.
As he looked at me attentively, a reply was finally heard
So I listened with intensity to each unspoken word.
We do not lose our loved ones he said staring in my eyes
Our bonds, they last forever they’re not broken when we die
Death’s merely an illusion that takes loved ones out of view
We cannot see the air or wind, but we all know that they’re true.
As the robin turned to fly away, I questioned was he you?
With a wave of overwhelming love I heard “I love you too.”
