Picture by Josephine Wall

* * *

I wrote this for a friend named Lisa who
lost her father to cancer last year.She
was struggling with her grief so I wrote
this in the hope that my words might bring
her some comfort.

* * *

I have been in your position
And I know just how you feel
Some days can be a struggle
And life can seem to be surreal

Time can be the greatest healer
This I know to be true
As I share my own experience
Through these words I write for you

His spirit will never leave you
Remember the good times you had
No one can take away the love
You still hold for your dear Dad

'tho some days you may feel angry
It's so important to release
Only then will you find
The road to inner peace

He will always be around you
You might feel him in the breeze
He will comfort you in sadness
And he may whisper through the trees

You may see his reflection
In a gently flowing stream
Or he my be closest to you
When you close your eyes and dream

He's still a big part of your life
He is the brightest star at night
For now and all eternity
He will remain your guiding light

Hold tightly to your memories
For they will help to get you through
Just call me if you need me
And I will be there for you

* * *

"We are all angels with only one wing.....
we can fly only by embracing each other"

I am in motion
I am blue
Love is an ocean
I'm anchored in you

Writing poetry can be used as a way of healing others ~ and ourselves.

I am certain that your friend, and many others who may read this loving poem, will be touched by it as deeply as I have been...

Love & Eternal Light,

Perhaps the nickname of Florence Nightengale
might be in order for you,  a lady with a
very huge compassionate heart.
