I AM HERE
 

“I AM HERE”

In the deepest silence
When time seems to still
Memories invade the quietness
And my heart begins to fill

The grief still haunts me
This I can’t deny
I still find myself asking
The question never answered.. ‘Why?’

I know you did not mean to go
And that it was not your choice
But still I wonder
Then I hear your voice

Whispered on the wind
Are words I hear you say
In my soul that soothe me
Each and every day

“You know I am always beside you
And I never really left
I still console you in times
When you feel so bereft

I hear your pleas
And I feel your pain
Just as God does, my love”
And I begin to weep again

His words, softly whispered
Seem to wipe my tears away
And I know he will always be near
And his comfort will forever stay

I take a breath so deep
And look up to the sky
Knowing we are together
Yes, my love and I

Here in the stillness
When the memories invade
I remember our vows
And the promises we made

Never to forget the love we shared
And plead not for what could have been
To remember that together we will be
Until we meet again

“You must sleep now
And I’ll visit you in dreams”
The stillness returns
But not so deafening it seems

“I’ll always walk beside you
And watch over you as you sleep
For this promise I made long ago
And this promise I will keep”

Words whispered on the wind
As time stands still
Are words that bring me solace
As my heart begins to fill

I hear the whisper fading
“I am here”
And a gentle breath
Wipes away my last tear
