Have you read this poem? I came across it this past weekend at a memorial service to remember Nevaeh and all the other children that lost their fight to cancer in the past few years at Texas Children’s.
I thought I would share it here with you. It is probably one of my favorite readings about loss, because it describes so perfectly how you can feel their love all around…
I heard your voice in the wind today
and I turned to see your face;
The warmth of the wind caressed me
as I stood silently in place.
I felt your touch in the sun today
as its warmth filled the sky;
I closed my eyes for your embrace
and my spirit soared high.
I saw your eyes in the window pane
as I watched the falling rain;
It seemed as each raindrop fell
it quietly said your name.
I held you close in my heart today
it made me feel complete;
You may have died…but you are not gone
you will always be a part of me.
As long as the sun shines…
the wind blows…
the rain falls…
You will live on inside of me forever
for that is all my heart knows.
