I'll always be here right by your side

 some read what I write and they tell 
me its great, but much more to me 
it's an emotional cleansing of slate.
A gift from God as a process to 
healing for the times when its hard 
to express how I'm feeling. To live is 
just one of the gifts we are granted, 
not knowing what's next is what 
keeps us enchanted . The one thing 
in life we all seem to fear is the end 
of that life as it starts to grow near. 
Well I am one that has been given a 
peek, I've seen a small part of the 
answers we seek. Asleep on the 
couch in the quiet of night my mom 
came to me bathed in bright 
Silverlight. She had come back to me 
is she  promised 6 days before . 
when she lay holding my hand in 
wait at deaths door. Just before she 
passed she told me that if by any 
possible way that she would come 
back to show me that she was okay. 
she spoke of her fears of leaving me 
here on this earth, that I have been 
her best friend since the day of my 
birth. She said life on this earth no 
matter how long it took, was just a 
small part, like a page in a book. 
When we move on our love 
transcends, our souls are connected 
and that never ends. She said life is 
a ride full of ups and of downs. With 
good times and bad full of smiles 
and of frowns. I've been right here 
my child , with you each day. not one 
day have I missed since I passed 
away. I'll always be here right by 
your side continuing on with our 
most wonderful ride
