A Word of Comfort to One and All

  Of late I have read of so many of my friends here  having loved ones crossing over to next world.
I know that no words can really ease the pain that is in ones heart.
I pray that this poem with bring to you a measure of the comfort it has brought to me over the years.
Til the pain starts to ease alittle
may the love and friendship of all your friends
be of great comfort to you

To Those I Love and Those Who Loved Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go
So I can move into my afterglow.
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears,
Let’s be happy that we had so many years.

I gave to you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it’s time I traveled on alone.

So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must;
It’s only for awhile that we must part,
Then let your grief be comforted, with trust.

I won’t be far away, for life goes on;
And if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can’t see me or touch me, I’ll be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way, alone
I’ll greet you with a smile and say,

“”Welcome Home”
