A Gift of Soul

Love Offering
         A Gift of Soul
 
 
A scream muffled lost for words
  Confuse I am whole body in distress
A different kind none prior and lingering
  Deep penetrating pain cry my soul in sorrow
I languish lament question my faith
  Why our loved one? Our beautiful rock
Of the family’s humble home our castle of love
 
Rage red eyes hopelessness
  I cry depressed and aggrieved
Stare blankly into horizon
  With eyes dead into sunrises
Inside my soul weeping i sink
  Deep into the well of sorrow
 
My eyes alas dry from crying slowly
  Fill the hollowed out empty heart
With all the strength I can gather
  Begin to see things clearing yet diffused
Still strained I feel the love the warmth
  A big circle of caring engulfing our family
 
Our worries straight into arms embraced
  Slowly recover our smiles though guarded
Build our confidence back stronger we get
  Held up high our head with hope and belief
Rekindle our faith and love again is sustained
  Begin to accept without fear nor doubt
We give back to our Creator the Celestial  Guardian
  Our dear one a gift of soul from heaven once given by Him
For our beloved’s eternal rest care and joy
  A place of love peace an immortal life now blissful blessed

Belated grief and love song to all our beloved in my family who crossed the threshold to eternity who I missed at the time of their journey to eternal life. I love you all. Until we meet again.

I feel your pain. I lost my father, 2 brothers, eldest nephew, 3 sisters-in-law, and a brother-in-law within months of two years span to this year. I miss them terribly, grieving for the loss still lingers although I have accepted their passing but I look forward to seeing them again in that blessed morning when Jesus comes to wake them up for eternity.

Losing a loved one is never easy,
but thank God His grace always carries us through.

Thank you Charlotte. Acceptance of their departure is the first step to their having a peace in God’s kingdom.

Thank you Kurt. My younger brother whom you met when he visited us was the only one I had the chance to attend my loved ones funerals. And that was in Wisconsin. Three brothers left out of five and one sister..Both parents blissfully as well with them.

Thank you for your love of life and your sympathy.

Sorry for your losses.

Always there are five stages of grief. And when I grieve I wish I could bypass the first four and go straight into acceptance. But it never happens. The hardest to get over with is the anger, a desire to strike back but to no one in particular.

Like the poem though!

Yes acceptance is the bridge to cross from the moment of passing to interment. And send off with the celebration of life for eternity.

Thank you Brod Vic.
