Scribed on my Heart

So present the past few days - it is as though you walk again by my side. You sit in the empty space beside me. You hold me close in arms no longer here. You are the golden presence that I feel at times so close yet infinitely far away.

Unconditional love - freely given, joyfully accepted. At the outset of the grief journey, in pain, we ask others, "how long does it take?" - the short answer, "as long as it does." The thing one comes to understand is, "it is never over." We carry the love for our lost ones forever - scribed in my heart. I love you.

  4. Indeed, Indeed, Suzann. This is the pure and simple truth. And it is comforting, isn't it?

  5. That is how it is and even if you have a soul connection with someone still alive but not with you, it also is how it is. We are so much more than flesh. But you will naturally miss the flesh.

    Sounds like you are having fun with your guest :)
