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.

  3. Ourselves, mostly. Even Jesus wept.

  4. I agree completely Audrey.

  5. I weep for me too as they have been taken out of my life.

    Selfishly for ourselves sometimes I think. The hole left is large and we often feel lost.
