I Will Always Hold You In My Heart

By Barbara MacDonald , published on May 28, 2014

Trying...

To teach myself to think of you

Without so much emotion

Without longing to look

Into your sweet eyes

Which showed me your soul

A soul connected to my own...

When will the pain stop?

How do I let it be at peace?

I told you long ago

I did not want to live in a world

Without you

Now you are gone

My souls still cries for you...

I am here

You are there

In a better place

So they say

I am selfish

I want you here with me

My heart not able

To let... (more)

For Her The Bell Tolls

By Uttam Gill, published on Jan 13, 2013

As the winter set in, the summer in my heart sing spring

The bell tolls but for whom

For the one who placed seasons in me

As the dawn breaks, she wakes up with me in my thoughts

Who is she? She is, for whom the bell tolls

As the day progress and noise increases

She comes and calms my nerves

For her the bell tolls

Seasons of life has withered her

But she resists the withering of others

She germinates hope

For her the bell tolls

The one who lives and the one who gives

I pray, I plead, when I die

Toll... (more)

Grief...

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Oct 25, 2012

Time slips away

I know I can not rewind this gift

I cry out to this senseless universe

Longing to hold in my hands

One last moment when life

Was as I knew it

You were here with me...

We never know what time

Will steal from us

We must treasure every second

Speak all the unspoken emotions

Left behind unsaid

Unlittered by this cancerous evil...

If I had known

I'd drench us in joy

Hold every second in

The palm of my hand

Played in all the colors

Drowning us in joy

Love and The Joy Of Hurting

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jul 31, 2012

I know all of us have struggled with losing someone we love dearly. Some more then others. I found this and thought there was great comfort in these words. I hope they have the same effect on you. Love never dies, it lives in our memories forever. How could it be that someone who was part of your soul just disappears? Life is energy. Love is life. There is no way to put out energy, so therefore it follows that love is eternal also.

"Do you like what you do?" she asked me. "I write about happy things," I said. "Wait a minute. I've read your work. You made me cry sometimes,"... (more)

Argos: Outbound - Chapter 9

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on Dec 17, 2011

9.

Where am I? Fuzzy. Everything is fuzzy, foggy. The lights are harsh, but someone’s voice is telling me to go slow. Why? Whose voice is it? She – I think it’s a she – is telling me something about keeping the lights low, but they are nearly blinding me. Me. Who am I? Reston. Am I Reston? So fuzzy, so hard to remember – what? Things? Time? I am so weak, my head feels so heavy, my arms, I can hardly lift them.

Reston. Matthew Reston. Where am I? She has returned. She is wearing some kind of blue shirt, tunic, what’s it called? She tells me her name is Min Hwa, tells me she is... (more)

Sea Lace and Sadness: A Short Commentary on Grief and Loss

By Lynda Lehmann, published on Nov 17, 2010

This has been a sad month for my husband and me. We have lost three friends in the past four weeks or so. Three people full of life and wonder and vitality. Where their energy has gone, no one can comprehend. I am reminded of the preciousness of life.

We are all buffeted by the tide, often surrounded by circumstances beyond our understanding or control. Yet life remains beautiful, offering us moments of beauty and contemplation at unexpected times and in unexpected places. Thank goodness for those times when visions of natural beauty quiet the mind and heart and give solace.Like... (more)

Daily Word for Sunday 5/16/2010

By Pastor Jeff, published on May 16, 2010

"Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted." Matt 5:4What a paradox! We think of grief and happiness as being mutually exclusive. In fact, even in Christian circles, we are often taught that the Christian always has a smile on his face and a song in his heart. We are told that to be sad is sinful, that grief represents a lack of faith, and that pain comes from sinful living. Yet, this teaching is directly contrary to what Jesus is saying here.Let's look for a moment at the word "mourn." In the Greek it means to grieve a loss. This may be the loss of a loved one, but it may be... (more)
