No Such Thing As Ghosts

There's no such things as ghosts,
I think you'll all agree,
that people who are dead
cannot talk to you or me.

These voices in my head
are surely in my mind.
And things I sometimes see
are illusions of a kind.

I'm told it's Devil's play,
it's really him I hear.
So the Devil's found a way,
whilst good souls must not appear?

But the voices usually tell
of the things we should do right.
So the Devil's messengers
must have joined in God's true fight?

Bringing guidance to the lost,
and comfort to despair.
Establishing a link
with those with whom we care.

These voices in my head
can usually 'kiss and tell'
of things, that only you and them,
would ever know so well.

But there's no such things as ghosts
you're insane to disagree.
And people think your strange,
if you talk to them... like me.

    This is wonderful. I believe it's our memories or what we hope the future would be that talks with us. I love the poem, it is amazingly written. Thanks for sharing. Sami
