Realms of Light
My dear, treasured pipsters, my tears of sorrow are mixed with tears of gratitude for your out-pouring of love. Words cannot adequately express how you have all touched me with your compassion and kindness.
I am also filled with a serene sense of peace that my parents are reunited in The Beyond from whence they came. The beauty on their insides matched the beauty of their outsides. I was proud to be their first-born ~ their "Love Child".
Since their mid-teens, they have been inseparable ~ and experienced a deep, abiding love and respect for one another. They were bright, articulate, accomplishe, talented, generous and highly spirited people who loved their children, nature and their fellow man. To know them was to love them. To be in their presence was to raise one's own vibration.
My sister, brother, and I are experiencing an extreme sense of loss, however, we are so deeply appreciative to have been blessed with parents such as they were.
I read each and every one of your compassionate ~ and eloquent ~ responses to the news of my parents' passings. You are all heart and soul and that is what makes you the fine poets that you are.
Last evening, my family encouraged me to attend my monthly open-mike poetry gathering. I recited 8 poems ~ one of which was my most recent post "His Rose ~ Her Thyme". The love and support that I received, was almost over-whelming. One lady, a Reiki Master, came over and sat with me all evening with her loving hand on my back ~ sending healing energy into all aspects of my being. She also gave me her card and offered to give me a full treatment free of charge. Another woman offered to have me over for a weekend so that she could pamper me. I barely even know these two blessed people!
I am now pleased that I was encouraged to attend Poetry Night. Poets are the sort of people that one needs to be around when one is in need of loving support and understanding.
Thank you all for being you! ~ and for being the poets that you are!
With much love,
