On the day you died, you passed into a realm we cannot know.
Though religion has fooled many into believing ‘it is this’ or ‘it is that,’ the best we can ever say is this — It is mystery!
Dawn arrived quietly… but it was your life, your courage, your love that filled the room with light.
I was empty — no thoughts, no fears or worries — there was a Presence that claimed me.
I said, “I love you Mom” and you whispered, “I love you.” A tear ran down your cheek as I gently kissed your lips. Time stopped as you breathed forth your spirit.
In your assent, you gave us the most precious gift- a chance to live in a new way.
No longer bound, there is a freedom that comes with death…the shackles of our misguided safekeeping can fall away so that we might finally, live and breathe free.
To be FREE is the truth we are made to be
To SEE that we belong to one another
To LOVE without constraint or expectation
To CELEBRATE everything as gift, knowing that we are gift — a gift to be given away.
On the day you died I was given a choice…
May I always remember.
