Where are you?

I'm in the wind, I'm in the breeze
I'm in the flowers and in the trees
I'm all around; though you cannot see
Please don't weep. I'm still me.

I'm energy now, a beam of light
I watch over you day and night
I'm in your heart; can you not feel?
The depth of our love, does it not heal?

I scattered you at water's edge
Mindful of the rocky ledge
The lake was calm, the sky was blue
I saw a butterfly; then there were two
Please tell me that was you.

A pair of dragonflies, glistening wings
Dipping, dancing, shining things
Great heron swooped in to view
I saw another, making two
Once again - was that you?

Just close your eyes my love and feel
I'm not gone, I'm real as real
I've only changed, transformed as they say
I'll never leave you, I won't go away

I am the light that flickers in the hall
I am the shadow you see on the wall
I'm all around, though you cannot see
I'm not gone.
I am still me.

Wendy, such beautiful poetry that touched my soul.

There is so much in the words that I truly believe. It is early days my friend, you are still healing. I am sure David is with you, each and every day. Every breath, every heartbeat.

Take care my friend.

Such a beautiful and moving poem, Wendy. When my friend Beckie's (Dragonfly Corner)daughter passed away, she thought of dragonflies because Andrea loved dragonflies. Amazingly, we have seen more dragonflies in her garden since that time than ever before. And they always lift her spirits. I believe David's spirit is there with you,too, Wendy, helping you in the healing process.

Oh Wendy, what a lovely, moving poem. It is so positive and uplifting. I hope you never stop writing, because you have a special gift, and this poem is sure to touch anyone that has lost a loved one.

Wendy...your words move me. They are so beautiful. I remember you writing about the day you scattered David's ashes. And the heron, the dragonflies... I believe they always show some kind of signs. It must have been him.

When my brother-in-law passed away, my youngest sister arrived later from the southern city of Chennai. In the evening when we were sitting in the porch and talking about him, a butterfly (a sulphur) came and rested on my sister's hair for several minutes. To think that he wanted to show her some sign was very moving.

Like the comment above mine, I feel the same way. I hope you keep on writing. Take care.

The flickering lights reminds me of my dad's passing. The dinning room light started to flicker from time to time in my brothers home. Where he passed. These words are so wonderful. You are very good with poetry. I send healing energy your way every day. And look forward to your every word. Big hug my friend.
