“I know a place – I’ll take you there” …
You cry because you miss me, this I understand. I miss you too – I miss the snuggles, hugs and kisses that we shared. But I came to this place to continue on in a new life, not because I didn’t love you anymore but because it was time for me to go to the next phase of my existence. I was not taken away from you because you cannot take away that which was never owned. My presence in your life was and is a gift to be cherished and honored just as I cherish and honor you.
Life is not simply about being born into a body, living a certain number of years and then dying. Energy cannot die. We are blessed with time in a body so that we can learn, share and grow. It prepares us for the next phase of our eternal life. The body holds within it the true life force of our existence…our soul, spirit and loving light. Without these our bodies would be empty, blank, void of feeling and expression. Without our energy we would indeed be dead and could never have experienced our love for each other.
You feel that all you have left are memories but this is not so. You see, when I took leave of my earthly body I left a little something behind for you. You can’t touch it, hold it or examine it, for what I left behind is far too uninhibited for confinement. I left in your tender care a piece of my soul. I placed it right next to your own which is quite fitting as we were always side by side in our earthly life together. I love you too much to have left you with nothing but memories that tend to fade and grow cloudy as the years go by. I love you too much to have vanished without a trace.
I understand your tears, each one you shed is testament to your love for me and I am honored and humbled. But don’t forget the good things we shared – remember and smile. This is an honor for me as well. When you need me I will be here. Close your eyes, relax, take slow, deep breaths and picture me in your mind. Shut off the world and your notions of what you think death is and give me a chance. Look for the subtle signs I send you. Don’t stop being proud of me, I am a friend to be proud of, I am still your friend and soul mate. Don’t memorialize the death of my body but instead honor and celebrate my never-ending life for it is eternal and forever as is my love for you.
Until we meet again…
