Well today I am brooding…with all the drama going on with my sister, it has me thinking (dwelling I guess)
So I thought I would share a poem. I wrote it after Mum died, and read it at her funeral. It has helped me through…..
My Guiding Light
I can feel you in here with me,
it’s like you’ve never gone
yet I open my eyes, and I’m alone,
this whole thing feels so wrong.
You were the best, the brightest
always so loving and so kind,
the hole you leave will never heal
in the hearts you leave behind.
You had a smile to light up darkness,
a great loud booming laugh,
you threw yourself right into life,
never did anythings by halves.
Always kind and caring,
you did what you knew was right.
you taught me when to yield my ground,
and when to stand and fight.
You encouraged me to greatness
in things both large and small,
all my joys and triumphs,
you shared with me them all.
I will feel you in the sunshine
and splashing through the waves,
I will be the one you showed me how,
always truthful, kind and brave.
