I JUST WOULD LIKE TO SHARE SOMETHING I CAME ACROSS ON ELLEN BURNT PAGE I THOUGH EVERYONE WOULD LIKE TO READ IT I KNOW IT MADE ME FEEL GOOD AND THE POEM IS TRUE TO ME. I MUST START THINKING AS THE POEM SAYS

 

I'M GONE NOW BUT I'M STILL VERY NEAR.

DEATH CAN  NEVER SEPARATE US.

EACH TIME YOU FEEL A GENTLE BREEZE.

IT'S  MY HAND CARESSING YOUR FACE.

EACH TIME THE WIND BLOWS.

IT CARRIES MY VOICE WHISPERINE YOUR NAME.

WHEN THE WIND BLOWS YOU HAIR EVER SO SLIGHTY, THINK OF IT AS ME PUSHING A FEW STRAY HAIRS BACK IN PLACE.

WHEN YOU FEEL A FEW RAINDROPS FALL ON YOUR FACE

IT'S ME PLACING SOFT KISSES.

AT NIGHT LOOK AT THE SKY AND SEE THE STARS SHINING SO BRIGHTLY,

I'M ONE OF THOSE STARS AND I AM WINKING AT YOU AND SMILING WITH DELIGHT

FOR NEVER FORGET YOUR THE APPLE OF MY EYE AND  MY BUTTERFLY.

 

THANK YOU ELLEN FOR POSTING THIS POEM.

Those are beautiful poems and I'd like to add a little one that a friend sent me when my Jerry passed away. Here it is:

"God saw you getting tired and the cure was not to be,
so he put his arms around you and whispered "come with me.

With tearful eyes I watched you and saw you pass away,
although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest,
God broke my heart to prove, he only takes the best."
Ellen, I cry each and every time I read it, because it is EXACTLY what happened. I was holding his hand when they called "code blue" for him in the ICU and watched and prayed that he'd come back, but God wanted him... I stayed with him for over 2 hours just holding his hand and holding him until they made me leave, it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. HUGS is what we all need!

I too was holding my dear Bill's hand and watching him as he took his last breath. No CODE BLUE because he had signed all papers for no extraordinary measures or anything. He passed so peacefully and just slipped quietly from this life into the next. I loved him so much and as hard as it hurt, I couldn't even try to ask him to stay because I knew he was tired of the pain and just wanted rest. Within 24 hours of hearing our daughter tell him it was okay because she was moving to South Carolina to take care of me, he let himself go. It felt like he had been worrying so much about me that he couldn't let hmself go until he knew I would be okay. I love having her and her family with me and its wonderful but, its different. I miss him so much. Thx for sharing these poems... hugs
Marsha, I too was holding Doug's hand when he took his last breathe. I let out a blood curdling scream and cried non stop. I remember it too clearly. I pushed the button for help and ran in the hall crying. The Doctor came in. I sat holding Doug's hand for hours too. Doug had gone into a coma and after his last breathe, he turned his head toward me and his eyes opened halfway. He seemed to go from warm to ice cold so fast. I held his hand so long, it was cold and stiff. I bellowed. I stayed there for a few hours by myself until a couple of friends came to be with me. God I miss him and I am so lost.

Kathy, I never understood how it works but I believe that Bill truely was waiting for permission to go only to know things would be taken care of. I was told to tell Doug his body was sick and he had to leave it. The only way I could was I told him it was time to leave this sick body, but never to leave me, instead to stay with me forever as an Angel . Within 30 min. he died. Life and death...is a mystery to me. Glad your daughter is with you even though I know you will still forever miss Bill. Hugs....

Marsha that was a beautiful poem also. It said so much in just a few lines. Here's a poem that was with some wind chimes I bought for the cemetary that I would like to share with everyone.

Whispers from Heaven

When I left this world without you
I know it made you blue
Your tears fell so freely,
I watched; I know this is true

While you were weeping
Days after I passed away.
While all was silent within me
I saw you kneel and pray.

From this wonderful place called heaven
Where all my pain is gone
I send a gentle to whisper;
"My loved ones, please go on"

The peace that I have found here
Goes far beyond compare
No rain, no clouds, no suffering--
Just LOVE from everywhere.

You need not be troubled
Just stay close to GOD in prayer
Someday we'll be reunited
My love, HIS love surrounds you always;
EVERYWHERE
That's beautiful Debbie, thanks so much for sharing it!

Beautiful...it made me cry. Not bad tears though, good tears thinking of my Frank.
Kathy, I held my Franks hand too and watched him take his last breath. I told him it was OK to go that I didnt want him to suffer anymore and it was like a switch. He just stopped, didnt make a sound didnt slow down just stopped. I helped the nurse wrap him and didnt leave him for a second. I walked him right to the morgue door even though they told me a couldnt. I told them to try to stop me. I would have walked him right to the gates of heaven if I could. He was my laughter and now all I have is tears. Sometimes I wish we werent so good together, then it wouldnt hurt so much. To say I miss him is an understatement. 5 months he is gone and I still look at that front door waiting for him to walk through.
