So quickly you were taken, Oh! how time is moving by

as I think of all the questions, why, why, why?

3 hours feels like 3 years to me

as I sit and remember all the things not meant to be.

This heart of mine torn apart, I’ll never understand,

It’s not your time, it just can’t be so, please don’t leave, please don’t go.

Don’t leave me here and all alone, with this grief like a weight of lead,

Don’t anyone speak, don’t anyone breath “the” word, I don’t want said.

You’ll never understand my grief, so deep, so deep for even me,

My whole being has been shredded and now with pieces back together.

They’re all in different places, none of them make sense,

This is how I feel, my whole body stiff & tense.

Can someone make the clock turn back, I’ll do anything you say,

Just give me some more precious time, to undo the events of that day.

The faithful day you were taken, left my life without a word,

Left me here alone and grieving, with nothing left but hurt.

And now all I have are memories, and all just make me cry,

They used to be such nice ones, and now all seem sad and finish with a sigh!

The time moves by, as it slowly ticks along,

Oh No! it  just can’t be ….that used to be our song.

Here comes another flood of tears, there’s just no holding back,

My Heart, my Soul, my Being all feeling under attack.

A new day has just dawned, I live it breath by breath,

I feel just like a stranger that I have suddenly just met.

Each moment is a lifetime, the moments too far apart,

A new day with the words “Just Breath” coming from my heart ……..

3 April 2011 - for a friend who lost her beloved husband suddenly.

You came to me this morning and as the day was dawning,

The wondrous sights to see, the feeling on this earth of being me.

No-one can ever really understand, the feelings deep inside,

I speak the words, I do explain, my whole being I open wide.

To leave myself so open, to try let others understand,

I do my best to help them and take them by the hand.

To feel the things that I do, to understand the life,

To keep myself upon the earth, a friend, a mother and a wife.

My heart is bursting open, don’t you get it? Can’t you see?

That all of this is available, not only just to me.

So take one step, along the path, as I ask you now to come,

Take the first step of what I now know,

along the path that leads to Freedom!

5 April 2011 - for a dear friend Darlene

Peace and serenity is all around,

the silence felt just can't be found.

It takes time and space and a quiet mind,

to reach the inner peace we want to find.

And when this place is reached inside,

the peace expands and hearts open wide.

To stay in this place is just pure bliss,

allow healing to take place that you just can't miss.

Stay focused and grounded in this beautiful Peace,

letting go of everything what a wonderful release.

So keeping your mind and body still,

allows the Peace to flow at will.

To enrich your body and mind as one,

just rest in Peace’s presence and let everything succumb.

To whatever is rising and whatever is in store,

just welcome all as it rises and even ask for more.

And as you sit in silence, in the very core of Peace

let the chatting in your mind be stopped and all distractions cease.

And as you take this precious time to hold so still in Peace,

Allow the greatest gifts and lessons to come flooding in release.
