DYING GRACEFULLY

Lovingly and true
   You asked I cry not for you 
     You were not gone
        Only one with Creator become.

In my mind
    your request
         appreciated and understood.
                                   For me 
                        A request unable to keep
                  Grief has raged and will not sleep.

Time and again
             grief denied 
                    opens despairs deepest pit.
         Time and again, grief reminds me to pray 
Keeps me on this journey to Creator's eternal light and love.

Creator's healing grace ever present 
    Creator never grace stingy
        Question only how much I will to accept.

This I know
     I miss you:
            When I see a beautiful sunset
                Your birthday
                   When holidays come
                         Your photograph
                            When I fix something in our home
                                Your perfume
                                   When a mother holds a child
                                       Your favorite song
                                          When a couple holds hands
                                 Your place waits on your side of the bed.

I do not like grief
         I wish it gone
             Although
                  truth be told
                           has taught me an important lesson: 
                                                                 How to die gracefully.
