For those who are suffering with the loss of a loved one ... this was a poem in a friend of mines memorial card that I lost to a bike accident in 2001. It touches my soul every time I read it. If you have poems from a loved ones "Memorial Card" and would like to share ... PLEASE DO! ~~ I'M FREE ~~ Don't grieve for me for now I'm free I'm following the path God laid for me I took his hand when I heard Him call I turned my back and left it all I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work, or play Tasks left undone must stay that way I found that place at the close of day If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the joy of tomorrow My life's been full, I savored much Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch Perhaps my time seemed all too brief Don't lengthen it now with undue grief Lift up your head and share with me God wanted me now. He set me free.

My two closest friends and I have all lost our favourite parent through long drawn out deteriorating and debilitating illnesses. My Mum had dementia and took 15 years before she went. Sandra' Dad had Parkinsons Liz's mum had a brian tumour. We all went through the long long loss and grief period and the losing of the "person" before the death and having to deal with our parent who is gone but not dead. And all of course felt death was a relief and a release at the end. When such things happen death feels like a friend at the end. You just wonder why he took so long. Junie

Spirit...I can't write two words about my father without the tears but that is ok too. I always operate wide open, not much spare time, not much rest...I know that when my time comes, it is just the time when I don't have to get up and go to work any more and sleeping for a long long time doesn't sound to bad.....and I know he is finally resting. I went to the beach a few weeks ago, on the anniversary of my wife going, and just as I got to the beach two shooting stars right next to each other flew across the sky until just over head and then disappeared...

I have never had a problem about death. Just the dying or the undignified or painful way it can be. And of course suddenly a friend is there and then they are not. OH!!! and we so much left to share and say that is now left unsaid. But no problem. Junie

~~ WELCOME HOME ~~ When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do. You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears, be happy we had so many years. I gave you my love, you can only guess, how much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love you have each shown, but now it's time I traveled alone. So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for a awhile that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart. I won't be far away, for life goes on, so if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can't see me or touch me, I'll be near, and if you listen with your heart, you'll hear, all of my love around you soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and say, " Welcome Home". ( My brother "George's" card )

God hath not promised Skies always blue, Flower-strewn pathways, All our lives through; God hath not promised Sun without rain, Joy without sorrow, Peace without pain. But God hath promised Strength for the day, Rest for the labor, Light for the way, Grace for the trials, Help from above, Unfailing sympathy Undying love.
