I am sharing a poem written some time ago and I hope it brings some comfort to those who have lost a loved one recently, and whose grief is still quite raw.
I hope it brings you some comfort.  


I am with you in the morning
In the bird’s first song.
I am with you in the sun’s first light
I am with you all day long.

I am with you as you travel
In the haste of every day,
You will feel my very presence
In the sun’s last ray.

I am with you in the sparkle
Of a diamond studded sky.
I hear your every wish
And I see you cry.

I watch you as you try to sleep
Then, when exhaustion takes control.
I am there to shelter you -
To heal your wounded soul.

I am in the winter wind.
The leaves of autumn’s chill,
In the daffodils in springtime
The blossoms on the hill.

My presence will be with you
In the cool of a summer breeze,
I am watching over you
On days such as these.

I am with you as the ocean
Laps against the shore,
As the seabirds soar and fly
Then land again once more.

I shall reach out to you
In the words of a much loved song.
A stirring piece of music
As you hurry right along.

A fragrance will keep me close
And you shall feel me near,
I am with you now and always
Because I love you dear.

Love and hugs,

"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."

Oh Kitty Kat - just being alive is enough for me - but my writing is important to me. I have missed you too - take care and be safe home in Nebraska - going to be cold there soon. Love and hugs, Linda xx
