I am Near

I am Near

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

last words

"



On days like these, there are so many things to share.


I cannot list them all, you must know, how deep I care.


You deserve to hear my heart.


I hope these words bind your fears.


For the grave calls my name

and my time is growing near.


 Let our love lace our faith and

that faith dry your tears.


I love you very much but soon my soul will soar.


And from Heavens boarders I will observer your life below.


I will join the Eastern wind and travel with you on a breeze.


So take in my words of love


And capture my smile so dear


and when the wind caresses,


know that I am near.

' I will join the Eastern wind and travel with you on a breeze.' Should be the last thing said.. and, the first when time invites.

This echoes, more dramatically, that one should tell people you love them every day or at least, show that you do so. So many emotions are kept inside for fear of seeming 'soppy' but loving or missing someone after you and he/she have parted from sound and touch is a desperate sadness. Your poem says how it should be.

You are welcome. ☺
those who really love us truly...even in death, we still feel that love---it never leaves our heart, our spirit....never.

thank you Lydi
beautifully said says i! we need this open honesty at the time and during the process of dying .. which actually, after a point, is every day ;) i can be the speaker dying or the speaker at the bedside of one who is passing on ..or one already in Heaven waiting for one who is getting ready ..love this poem ..very fine subject matter handled with empathy and maturity .. nice one for sure!
