Let Go

You don't have to let go
I'll always be near.

I'll be the wind
to wipe away your tears.

The sun
kissing your nose

The grass
tickling your toes

The rain
to wash away your pain

A song bird
to brighten your day.

The stars,
late at night,
to keep you safe in my light.

So you'll never have to
let me go.
I'll always be with you,
watching you
as you grow.

We'll see each other
once again
But between now
and then
know that I love you,
and that this
is not The End.

Double Rainbow

Sometimes, I forget 
how beautiful life can be.
Then I look up to the sky 
you remind me
A double rainbow 
to show
life doesn't stop, 
it just bends.
Though we can't see you
you'll always be near
Forever, in our hearts
you'll never 

This poem is for Travis V. McGee. I never knew how much Trav meant to me until he was suddenly gone. He was such a sweet guy. If you need help he was there. 
My husband lost a dear friend but gained the knowledge that his friend isn't truly gone. When I say "life doesn't stop, it just bends" I'm trying to convey how even though our loved ones are gone they're still here with us. I think they drop by to make sure we're doing ok. As much as we love them, they love us.

Diamonds in the Sand

I don't know why I care.
I don't know why I let it bother me.
Why do I expect so much from people?
They will never be who I need nor what I want them to be.
But I've got to give them a chance or I'll miss the diamonds in the sand.

Travis V. McGee

It isn't true!
It can't be.
Not you!

You deserve more.

More time.
More time to live.

To be with your friends
To be with your family

More time to love
More time to feel loved

It wasn't your time...

It wasn't your time.

I just want everyone's help in praying that his family and friends can stay strong, while mourning the loss of a son, a brother, and a dependable good hearted friend. A life lived but not long enough. A good soul. A great man. The best kind of friend.
