Just when God knew I needed to feel your presence, a glimpse of you appears. I am not always looking for those signs, but when I come upon them, it takes my breath away!
Yesterday, this happened through an ornery expression on the face of your 15-month old niece born after you left our Earthly presence and entered your Heavenly abode. I saw so much of you in her expressions, I laughed and cried at the same time!
You will never be gone, for many reasons! I will never stop talking about you, for one. Those who have never met you feel as if they have. You left a mark on so many that will never be forgotten! I will continue to feel your presence through those around us. I am so grateful for the years we were blessed with! Until we meet again, I will keep you close in my heart, speak of you often, and love and miss you every single day!! I cry because you are gone, but I smile because you were here!! 🌈🕊😇🙏🎼😘❤️.
I Still See You
I cried the day you left us
And thought you left nothing behind
But, at that moment, I didn’t see
For my grief had left me blind
Blind to all the memories,
The stories that make us smile
There is a hole deep in our hearts
And will remain for quite a while
I was sad you had no children
To carry on your legacy
But that is another story
And yet a different kind of vacancy
But, amazingly so, I saw you today
In the beautiful eyes of your niece
And all I thought at that moment
Was “Thank you, God, for that little piece”
It was a reflection of you in her face
An amazing glimpse of love
A reminder that you are still with us
Still shining brightly from above….
