Gentle Spirit

You came when I needed an etheric friend, though I never knew you in life. An angelic guardian I see in dreams. You died just before I was born yet, it feels like we've spent a lifetime together. Protectorate, eternal spirit, arriving when needed; an infinite connection. Cartoonist that you are; in childhood, I knew you as a giant panda bear, my invisible playmate after grandma died. You understood just what my child-mind needed to heal. Others only labeled me a, “weird child”. You inspired me and gave me hope. To you I attribute my imagination and creativity; from you I inherited my love of the arts. Now, astral visits give birth to fresh ideas. Being an adult should never be boring, grownup or set stagnant. If “faith is believing”, then I am rich. I believe in spirit and soul. Yes, you came when I needed a friend and now I believe I can truly be me; without the condemnation and judgments of others. You came and you gave me… back to me.
