For The Ones I Love

                  For The Ones I Love

For the ones I love, I wrote these words.
As you are sitting here, with tears in your 
eyes I am also here. You may not see me,
but I am here. I am now ready to leave 
this world and I want you to let me go.

There are things that I must do. Don't tie
yourselves to me with tears. When we were 
together, I gave you my love all those years.
You in turn gave me lots of joy and for that,
I thank you all. 

If we had differences, we always came through.
Now I must take a journey, but I must do it alone.
If you must cry, than go ahead. Cry for a moment 
and let God comfort your soul.

The seperation won't be long. Keep the good 
memories deep within your heart. Even if you don't 
see me, I will be there by your side. You might not
see me, but at times you might feel me.

When you are ready to take this journey - this is the
road that you must follow. I will be the one to greet you 
when you clime the Golden Stairs, with opened arms 
and a smile. I will tell you - welcome home, JESUS is
waiting for you at the door...

    Dear Lucilla, The metaphysical world is so close that we cannot Imagine. My experiences with metaphysics for over thirty years has provided me with innumerable fascinating stories. A tragic poem that because of its reality is great! Thank you for sharing and thank you for visiting! God bless you, for HE has already blessed HER!

    Lucilla, you moved me to tears with this heartfelt write. I can see how you chose to read this at your mom's funeral as well. You have penned these words of comfort, I hope you let yourself be comforted by them. Be blessed. One love. Joy Wells

    So emotional; has the expression of love but needs to break away and become independent. It certainly is a journey with no guarantees. Lovely verse Lucilla! :)
