My mother in law sent this to me saying it was my Christmas message from my spouse.... More comforting words from the other side!! I am blessed.

To Those I Love

If I should ever leave you whom I love

To go along the Silent Way, grieve not,

Nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk

Of me as if I were beside you there.

(I’d come– I’d come, could I but find a way!

But would not tears and grief be barriers?)

And when you hear a song or see a bird

I loved, please do not let the thought of me

Be sad… for I am loving you just as

I always have… You were so good to me!

There are so many things I wanted still

To do– so many things to say to you…

Remember that I did not fear… It was

Just leaving you that was so hard to face…

We cannot see beyond… But this I know:

I loved you so– ’twas heaven here with you!

Becky, this is lovely and of course, it is what we all want to hear....

I do believe those who crossed death's threshold are with us....telling us this very thought.

Thanks for sharing,

Dear Becky,

I love that writing. It is really what I have felt for months, and have tried to convey to others. I am so glad to see you post this at this time of year, when we miss our loved ones so much. But if we really look and listen we can see and hear bits an pieces of them all around us every day.


God Bless
