The Broken Chain

A sweet poem.......

We little knew that morning that God was going
to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you, the day God called you
home.

You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our
guide: and though we cannot see you, you are always
at our side.

Ou family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same;
but as God calls us one by one, the Chain will link
again.

Aw Josie, that's beautiful.
Brought a tear or two to my eyes it did.

My son was killed in a car accident Dec. 5th 2006 and this poem came back to me. I had it lamenated with his picture for family and friends. Kind of ironic.
I found another one today that I think
Aaron would say to his loved ones..
Aaron struggled with alcohol for 20 years
and was so tired.


"I'm free"

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I''m following the path God has laid you see.
I took his hand when I heard his call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day.
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found the peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joys-
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee-
God wanted me now, he set me free.

((((((((Dear Josie)))))))) Thanks for sharing this lovely poem. I agree with you - I am sure that our loved ones would not want us to suffer over their passing. Some days are easier than others. You are in my thoughts and prayers every day.

I'm sorry you have to go through this Josie.

I know he knew you loved him and I know he wouldn't want you to hurt.

I know that doesn't help a lot though.



Like the butterflies, we must all transform through the tunnelled cacoon of death and change

So we can fly in the freedom of the heavens, visiting human flowers we love, un - encumbered by our human heaviness

Now, as light as a feather with the message of hope, love, peace and freedom fluttering in our wings

We CAN find the time to put a smile on a childs face,

Teach from insight, hindsight and example profound ‘lessons of being’ like, living in each moment to all who will learn

For the ‘old’ must die so the ‘new’ can live and emerge more beautiful

Free to enjoy the simple things, like being in the company of those we love and bringing a ray of hope to someones heart

Filled with wonderment and tranquility, going about our daily lives

Like little angels in the making - are we

and

The Butterflies.

(c)T.Seed. 2006.

Josie, I too know that Aaron loved you and knew he was loved.

I also believe that although they take a piece of us when they leave, they also are among us in spirit and through memories. Every day I see something or hear something that reminds me of my mother, and it's as if she is here for a moment.

Your Aaron will come to you in memories, or through a song or perhaps in a sunset, but his love and his spirit will live in your heart forever.

Josie, each day you are in my thoughts and prayers. May you take comfort knowing how many here love you and care.

My heart hurts for you and yet I know you and Aaron gave each other the gift of love and that will always be with you. His journey on earth may have been hard, but I truly believe he's at peace now and soaring with the angels. Praying for you always dear Josie ... that you find comfort, strength and peace.

my heart to yours

~ The Cord ~

We are connected,
My child and I,
By an invisible cord
Not seen by the eye.

It's not like the cord
That connects us 'til birth
This cord can't been seen
By any on Earth.

This cord does it's work
Right from the start.
It binds us together
Attached to my heart.

I know that it's there
Though no one can see
The invisible cord
From my child to me.

The strength of this cord
Is hard to describe.
It can't be destroyed
It can't be denied.

It's stronger than any cord
Man could create
It withstands the test
Can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,
Though you're not here with me,
The cord is still there
But no one can see.

It pulls at my heart
I am bruised...I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline
As never before.

I am thankful that God
Connects us this way
A mother and child
Death can't take it away!
