In The Light-

A shadow of joy flickered; it is me. I told you I wouldn't leave. My spirit is with you. My memories, my thoughts are imbedded deep in your heart. I still love you. Do not for one moment think that you have been abandoned. I am the Light.

In the corner, in the hall, the car, the yard--these are the places I stay with you. My spirit rises every time you pray for me, but my energy comes closer to you. Love does not diminish, it grows stronger. I am the feather that finds you in the yard, the dimmed light that grows brighter in your mind, I place our memories for you to see. We lived in our special way, a way that now has its focus changed. I still crave your understanding and long for the many words of prayer and good fortune for my soul. I am in the Light. As you struggle to adjust without me, I watch silently. Sometimes I summon up all the strength of my new world to make you notice me. Impressed by your grief, I try to impress my love deeper into your consciousness. As you should, I call out to the Heavens for help. You should know that the fountain of youth does exist. My soul is now healthy. Your love sends me new found energy. I am adjusting to this new world. I am with you and I am in the Light.
Please don't feel bad that you can't see me. I am with you wherever you go. I protect you, just as you protected me so many times. Talk to me and somehow I will find a way to answer you. Mother, father, son or daughter it makes no difference. Brother, sister, lover, husband or wife, it makes no difference. Whatever our connection-friend or even foe- I see you with my new eyes. I am learning to help wherever you are, wherever I am needed. This can be done because I am in the Light.

When you feel despair, reach out to me. I will come. Our love for you truly does transcend from Heaven to Earth.

Finish you life with the enthusiasm and zest that you had when we were together in the physical sense. You owe this to me, but more importantly, you owe it to yourself. Life continues for both of us. I am with you because I love you and I am in the Light.

Ellen,  such a beautiful poem.  I have printed this so I can carry it with me.  Thank you for sharing this with all of us.  HUGS
Oh my that is so beautiful.  I'm going to print that out and keep it next to me at work.
Beautiful, just beautiful. Well written and so poignant.

Ellen, simply wonderful and beautiful and true, and words that I absolutely live by, and big hugs of gratitude to you for giving us this to share.   How simply comforting to a hurting soul.

The ending says so much and when we are ready it will make sense. Hugs
I just walked outside and there was a feather on my patio.  I just started crying.  I've been so upset the last couple of days....was this his way of saying it will be ok?

I believe in my heart that is his way of saying he is still with you and it will be OK...hang in there, that's all I am doing too. Together we may all stay afloat. HUGS.
