(550) My Death-My New Life Begins

Rating: 3.4

Lying still in a hospital room, surrounded by family, tears flowing,
faces saddened. At the end of my bed stood a tall, slender lady
with beautiful features. Her skin, the look of velvet, with royal
eyes, rosy cheeks and lips. Angelic, the most beautiful woman, I
had ever seen. She beckoned with her right hand to come. The
pain immediately left my body. I was pain free for the first time in
many months. My body totally relaxed as if to sink within itself.
In a euphoric state I realized this must be the end, fear was non-
existent. I was filled with happiness. My time had come, time to
say good-bye to my loved ones and move on to a better life. It is

not the bitter end, we will meet again in paradise.

Melvina, this is beautiful and I can relate to everything you said. The scent of flowers filling the room. I was always told that each of us has a flower. I have smelt the flowers many times after someone has died. A really beautiful poem. I loved it. David

This poem moved me to tears, Melvina. I, too, believe that the departed leave a little message for us, and this brings great comfort to those left behind. A positive poem, much enjoyed. Love, Fran xxx

What a beautiful, comforting poem. There may be flowers in Heaven that we have never seen here on the earth. I like what Tagore said about death, 'Death is not extinguishing the light. It is putting out the lamp because dawn has come'. Take care. Warm regards, Sandra
