I lost someone very dear to me in April 2010 – my beloved husband Peter. It takes so much energy to carry on and it’s almost like we become two people in the process, public and private person, don’t you agree? To stay or become as One, a united force of body mind and spirit takes time and I want you to know, if you are grieving, my thoughts are with you. It is such a personal journey, but it doesn’t have to be a lonely path, you can share it with a friend or two along the way.
I plan to post an article about such journeys and paths each Tuesday in a series called Wellsprings Heart Space.
The articles will focus on issues related to all forms grief. Starting off today I would love to share a poem I wrote about eighteen months after Peter died….
I Am Here With You
The skies are dark
The rain is heavy
Life seems so gloomy!
Yet, there are rainbows….
There are sunny skies
That I cannot see right now
I get that
They are there above the clouds,
Why do you go there so often?
I go there because he is there
In my thoughts of yesteryear
No, I am not,
I am not there
I am here
I am with you
In this moment there are rainbows
Seek the moment,
Seek the Light in every moment and you will find me there
It is an experience that I had and I have expressed it to you today in poetry. I could hear him speak – I’d imagined myself all alone on this day, and yet I knew I was not. Do you have days like that? I was using my counselling skills upon myself as I sat at the dam.
Whether it was Peter speaking to me or the Light within shining through, it matters little. To me it was him in his voice and in his words; it was what he would say to me and it was a shining divine moment. I hope you can find yourself sharing such moments – the gems that come when least expected.
Well I hope you like my offering today; I hope to share with you again next Tuesday. Stay happy and free from doubts dear friends
