She made humble resolution
when she found out the news
tears leisurely rolled down her face
How must one feel
when they hear those words…
accept them with heavenly grace?
In one way, she acknowledged
by speaking to God with an open heart
knowing her life was not a waste
Yet, not ready to give up the fight
and passionately shaking her head
she was prepared for this unthinkable race
She trusted God, but, was faintly bemused
(Believing His way was the right way)
not yet, was she parting for a higher place
So with infinite love from her family
With incredible support from her friends
She fought with a smile and embrace
Though, after some time of following rules
and playing this game with tenacity
her body tired and couldn’t sustain the pace
Thus, saying farewell to her loved ones
She was given angel’s wings
for her new life of eternal happiness
Another door opens…
In loving memory of family and friends
who have passed away~

Nice words, Lauren.
From life to death

You’re welcome. 🙂
Had tears in my eyes remembering the loved ones who left me. your work never fails to touch heart..beautiful
…remembered what someone told me and i spread this message since..
when ever you feel a pleasant cool soothing breeze in midst of scorching hot summer or the air around gives you a warm snuggle in winter remember the loved ones departed gave you a hug, smile for they just smiled too.
Thank you so much for your very kind words and I will watch for that soothing breeze, lovely words, also~
Such a beautiful thought… thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much, Jessie, and I apologize for the late reply! 🙂
Through golden doors
Adorned as gates
There goes a path
To be revealed
To those who mourn
And those who wait
Forsworn to love
As one, and sealed
Lovely words as always, my friend. Your work is divinely beautiful with such grace and warmth as one might expect from a soul so kind. Lovely
Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words and your verse is beautiful, as always.
Wow, Sis! Your thoughts come from the heart as you reminisce about loved ones who are with our blessed Lord now in the best place!
Thanks, Susie and I’m glad you’re back! I also love your pic, beautiful photo of the birds!
The ultimate: completely trusting God with a blessed hope as we journey day by day until God brings us into His eternal presence!
Well said! 🙂
so sad…but beautiful
Thank you, Amrine, for visiting again and yes, it is sad. We’ve lost many loved ones in the last six years…but, thank you for your complement.
Absolutely beautiful, yet such a sad topic! A worthy tribute
Thank you very much! I appreciate your kind words and I know, it’s very sad, but true to life for us in the past several years…
My greatest fear.. to lose a love one.
But it’s so beautifully written!
Thanks so much, gertieapigo! We all share this fear, it’s a difficult subject, but continue to hug your loved ones~
Though you go forward
And we stay behind
We hold you in our hearts
Will meet once more.
Thanks for sharing; beautiful words, as well!
Awesome, were you thinking of Matthew’s mother mostly?
Thanks, Deb, yes, her, Jan, and others we’ve lost. “She” is also a generalization, representing the others…thanks for visiting again!
Thank you very much! 🙂
This is so moving. Thank you for sharing it.
Thank you for your kind complement!
A touching poem, thank you.
Thank you for taking the time to visit!
That is a wonderful poem, and I am touched by the way you worded it. I did write a poem about the death of a friend but you have covered the subject with more patience. http://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2011/09/05/like-a-rockship-on-its-way-to-mars/ you have a lovely way with words.
Thank you very much and I read yours just now and you conveyed your pain in a beautiful manner, as well. Thanks for sharing and I’m heading over your way again right now…
Beautifully written post Lauren! Keep up the fantastic work! Thanks for sharing.! Visit me too, please.
Thanks so much and I appreciate your visit and comment. I’ll be heading over your way now..

This is so touchingly sad yet hopeful, Lauren, that is almost overwhelming to read. Beautifully done!! Blessings and love, Terri
Thanks so much, Terri! It’s been a tough past several years…Blessings to you, too!
“She was given angel’s wings…” what a beautiful picture you create and a wonderful tribute this poem is. Thank you and Gods’ blessings.
Thanks so much, Jessie, and I appreciate your visit!
Ahhh Lauren, your work never ceases to amaze me. You are so fluid with words!!! Grief is never easy but your words give so much hope.
Thanks so much, BlueGem, for your comment, which I am completely humbled by…
Lauren you dealt with death with so much clarity there….and yet how emotionally demnading it must have been!
Thanks, Neel, it wasn’t easy, but I’m glad it came out okay…I appreciate you stopping by! 🙂
sorry for the typos Lauren….I meant demanding….
No problem! I read right through it (not a good thing, either)! 🙂
There is such grace in this poem. And such pathos. Beautiful.
Thanks very much! I appreciate your kind comment and for your extensive visit! 🙂
This is beautiful. I’ve been enjoying your poetry in the last few posts. I’ve just written two poems of faith, which is something I don’t do all that frequently. I appreciate your style and I’m trying to grow in my ability to express my own. I wonder if you would read my most recent compositions? I would love some feedback/critique.
