The Light

The Light

A Poem by Lauren Beth



Stretch out your arms, reach for the light

It’s OK to follow it, everything is alright.
Don’t hold back any longer, it is time to let go.
They will cry and mourn now and for awhile,
But soon enough they will come to see
You are safe now, at peace here
Your spirit secure here with me.
Your earthy deeds are all complete,
Time to discover your true and blessed destiny.
Those you leave have more growth and learning
So they must remain, but you will reunite
In another world, on another blissful day.
At this moment it seems so grueling to turn and leave,
But you will shortly realize that it had to be.
This bodily pain, suffering will be forever gone.
You will soon understand what it was all for,
The purpose of all the hurt, sorrow,
And so much more….

Embracing the light found in death.. this is a hard one for me.. though I do believe in afterlife and heaven.. death is a scary thought. You did a great job of making death seem so inviting and heavenly.. it's certainly everyone's future destiny and not something we can deny. By embracing it we are not victim to fearing death itself.. this is a great message..to those struggling with the emotions of loss or illness.. very tranquil!

Everything seems to happen for a reason, but in times of heartache and tragedy we can't see it right away... your words are very inspiring and motivational.
