Hi, I saw this poem today and it brought me comfort when I thought of my dad. I know your having a hard time with losing your husband and I hope this poem brings comfort to you and all others out there that have lost a loved one. Mindy
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 whispered to you softly as you brushed away a tear, It's me, I haven't left you, Im well, Im fine, Im here." I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,. You were thinking of the many times your hands reached out to me. I was with you at the shops today. Your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your pacels, 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 Im 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 its me." You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there. Its 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 light". And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I'll rush across to greet you and we will 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 be with me.

Oh, mindy...thank you. This is what I like to think happens with us all.

You brought tears to my eyes...but not sad ones.

Hugs, Kathi

Thank you so much for the poem. It brought tears to my eyes too. I lost my dad almost 2 months ago and I know that I will see him again. I'm going to send this to my sister and maybe print it for my mom. It is so lovely.
