Yvonne, the poem is beautiful. It brings me great comfort. I am going to share it with some more of my family that are hurting also after the lose of my dear husband.

I don't think you need to worry about your daughter writing poems about death and getting into Heaven. It's great that she is expressing herself. What better way to let her feelings out than to write about them. She will be stronger (I know we all hate that word) in the end for having faced her sadness than if she were to hold it in.

Our son was 13 when his Dad died I keep trying to get him to start a journal about how he feels, but he is not interested. We can talk about Dad all the time, the things he did, how he would be laughing at us for the silly things we do, but Nick cannot talk about how he FEELS about losing Dad. I wish he would because I think it will help him in the long run.
So, I think your little one is doing great and by you encouraging her to use her creativity to express herself...she's one lucky little girl to have you.

Thank you for sharing the poem; it is beautiful.
We all need to hear/read this to hopefully give us each a little peace.

This was gave me much peace. Thank you for sharing. A dear friend of mine lost her Mother this morning, I shared it with her, I know it will give her comfort too.

I'm sorry Yvonne I should have asked you if it would be OK to share this outside of the site. Thank you for the wonderful letter.

Virginia, That letter is exactly who my husband is. If you don't mind i would like to share it outside of this site. I think our friends and family would find comfort in it. His loss is terrible for me but it has affected everyone he was close to very much. Thank you

Speakin of poems.... Last January my little girl was writing poems about ducks and bunnies. Now she's writing about death and dying and saint Peter letting get into heaven. She's only 9 and I don't know if this a good way of expressing her sorrow or should I be worried. Her dad got sick on her 9th birthday and a week later they told us that he has 2 months left. I guess she has to deal with this somehow but it worries me.
