Mourning - Poem by Jessica Bunnell

I swear I’ve seen your face today,
In the glitter of the newly-risen sun.
And then I heard the jaybird say,
“Their work on earth is done.”

I swear I’ve heard your voice today,
Giggling your silly laugh.
And then I heard the soft wind say,
“There’s peace dear one at last.”

Iswear I’ve felt your touch today,
In the tears that I did cry.
And then I heard the dry leaves say,
“The spirit never dies.”

I swear I’ve seen my broken heart,
In the crescent of the moon.
And then I heard the raindrops say,
“The Lord is coming soon.”

I thought that you had left me,
For the heavens so far above.
And then I heard the flowers say,
“They left you with their love.”

I thought that I would miss you so,
And never find my way.
And then I heard the starlight say,
“They’re with you everyday.

The sun, the wind, the moon, the stars,
Will forever be around-
Reminding you of the love you shared,
And the peace they’ve finally found.”
