Good Bye - Poem by Shaun Edmonds

As I slipped into my bed for the end of the day
I say the evidence of your presence next to me
Your scent still lingered as a reminder of what you meant
The time that we spent
You gave me something that I didn’t have
A love with no limits
A love for me
A love for a lifetime

My soul aches as the image of you not there
Brings me to my knees in prayer
I must confess oh God, why do I over think everything
I feel a pain and now a sting
Is it your will or mine that will win in the end?
I don’t want to lose my best friend

As I awake the next day my peace is gone
I feel empty
Yet your presence is still there, next to me
I know my day will be consumed by the image of you
The thoughts of what went wrong
But I will pray

Father give me peace this day
I want your will, not my own
I want to love her, bring her to me
When you are ready, oh Lord
I love her and always will
I will keep my heart still
And wait for my butterfly
To fly
Fly home and stay

    Dear Shaun
    You have so much passion in this.
    Brilliantly done.
    Yes, letting go of love hurts the Child within us all.
    You're A Star..Love Duncan
