I hope you all enjoy this very special time with family. Here's to a Happy and Healthy 2015. I wanted to share this poem with you all. It really expresses how I feel about all the losses over the last year and a half. I believe that my precious loved ones who have moved on to a more peaceful place are not lost but forever in our hearts.
To the Living I am gone
To The Sorrowful, I will never return.
To the angry. I was cheated.
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you look in awe at a mighty forest
and its grand majesty--remember me.
As you look upon a flower and
admire its simplicity--remember me.
Remember me in your heart,
your thoughts, your memories of
the times we loved.
The times we cried, the times we fought,
the times we laughed.
For if you always think of me,
I will never be gone.
(I found this poem in an article Martha Stewart wrote about losing her Sister)
