Yes, she had been gone now for many months
and he walked the earth with a grief filled mind
and a heavy heart deeply mired down in
misery, black as night, trying to cope with her loss.
His favorite spot to walk became the familiar riverside
where they had first met and talked back in
those good old college days, when life was free and easy
and every day turned into a great adventure and
the skies of life were always blue
Yes ,there, where they had fallen in love, planned their future,
and had made their sacred marriage vows, one beautiful evening,
late in the month of June.Why ,they had even conceived their
first child there, a boy, born magnificent, now an active toddler
with her eyes and her smile .
Somehow he always felt closest to her there
One day, as he strolled silently along, head down,
deep in contemplation , wondering if life was even
worth living anymore, something happened to change
his outlook on life.
Suddenly it seemed he thought he heard a
gentle whisper on the breeze calling his name
It seemed to be saying;
Don't stand beside my grave and weep
I am not dead nor do I sleep
I am the sunlight on the rose
The gentle raindrop on your nose
I am the breeze just singing by
I am the lightening in the sky
I'm always with you dear, it seems
Each night I live within your dreams
With gentle hands I dry your tears
But this can not go on for years
I left you with a job to do
In the belief you'd see it through
I want no more that you should cry
And live this life just getting by
I want that you should start anew
And live the way that we used to.
Please let a smile be your sign
I am beside you all of the time
As you continue through this life
I will always be your wife.
In disbelief, he raised his head and noticed
for the first time that it was spring again
everywhere he looked all the trees were
budding anew and the tiny little wildflowers
were poking their sleepy heads out of the ground
to greet the warmth of the springtime sun
How beautiful he thought to himself!
Then he noticed a kind of spring in his step and a
dancing joy for living beginning to bubble up inside his soul
and he found himself looking forward eagerly to what
tomorrow might bring, for the first time since she died
How strange, he thought,
What a change.. the love that came from above..
can make in a man's life,when he receives that
most special gift,a message from one who's gone before
Perhaps love can move mountains after all
This is a dedication to my Teddy bear the outstanding one in my life.
Phrase: let a smile be
