A Friend’s Passing
When God calls them home
we left behind mourn deeply
for they or ourselves?
I hope my family and friends do not mourn my death but rather are joyous that I have taken the next step and am with the Lord, with no more sorrow and no more pain! I hope they do not mourn but rather look forward to the time they will join me there in that wonderful place!
We cannot help but feel the loss of those we have loved and cared for, so as I implied in the haiku, perhaps it is ourselves for which we grieve Patricia. Thank you for your comment and insight.
True enough Sal.
Ourselves, mostly. Even Jesus wept.
I agree completely Audrey.
I weep for me too as they have been taken out of my life.
A temporary void where sorrow gathers
is what our mournings be
and an emptiness that never fills
until the very end of we.
Yes, that’s it exactly.
Selfishly for ourselves sometimes I think. The hole left is large and we often feel lost.
So true Beth Ann. While they are now at peace the living must continue to to know the sorrow of their loss.
I have three of the chairs & the bases appear to be aluminum – I&2;817#ve tried two such cleaners & I dirty up lots of cloths, but I cannot tell any difference following cleaning. What to do?
