Today


I saw you today...You walked right past me... I smiled. I wondered if you missed me.... Seeing the sad look on your face confirmed what I knew. You were still grieving over me. As you stop I walk up behind you and hold you close, whispering softly, 'It's okay to let me go. I know you miss me but it's time for me to leave this earth..I need to move on.' A tear rolls down your cheek knowing that I'm right. As your heart starts to let me go I start to fade. I give you a tight hug and whisper once more, 'I love you, We will be together again one day. Just don't forget me.' As I completely fade away you start to walk out the door into the world to start your day and I whisper one last time knowing only I can hear myself. 'I love you...'

    This touches me in a way that can only be described as surreal belief. This is not just a simple poem, or even a story... this happened to you. You felt him, felt his presence, felt his love...and He Was There. This is what I believe.
    Beautiful Shadow. Just, so beautiful.; -) Kelly. (Report) Reply
