The Ties That Bind

DSCN4127

As I mourn the loss of a dear friend

I am reminded that life still goes on

13 days ago, my daughter was born

I could let grief swallow me whole

But what good would that do those I have left?

 

Throughout life, we face so much

There are hardships – financially, physically, and emotionally

We face death and say goodbye to so many we love

Ridicule, pain, loss, and more threaten to pull us down

But if that’s all we focus on, then yes life is indeed sad

 

However, we also are blessed with so much good as well

Friendships, family, laughter, joy, and love

New jobs, new homes, children and grandchildren too

There’s so much to look forward to if we have our eyes open to it all

We must learn from the hard times and appreciate the good ones

 

It’s not just about the day we’re born or the day we die

It’s about all of the days in between

Did we make it a life worth living?

That’s what we need to ask ourselves while we’re still here

And do all we can to make sure that answer is yes

 

It’s hard in the face of death to focus on life

Succumbing to grief would be so easy

But I believe that those we lose would want us to keep going

To make the most of the time we’re given

And to continue to strengthen the ties that bind

 

So that’s what I am trying to do

Live my life in such a way that would honor those I have lost

To make the most of each day that He gives me

Loving those I have left

And letting them love me

Until We Meet Again, My Friend

its-not-goodbye-its-see-you-later-1080x691

I feel like I’m walking in a daydream

Like I’m in a world that isn’t real

How can it be real without you?

You’ve been a part of my life for so long

For longer than you weren’t in it

 

We were once inseparable, bound by invisible ties

Always together, always on an adventure

You brought out a fire in me I’d been afraid to light

Pushing me to believe in myself

You didn’t like it when people put themselves down

 

I could listen to you sing for hours

It was easy to get lost in the sounds of your voice

It was always more than just a song to you

Your soul was heard in every note you sang

It was if the songs had been written just for you

 

The sound of your laughter could brighten even my darkest days

The vision of your smile brings joy to my heart even now

I want to hold onto that, to picture you happy and healthy

And to let that smile keep me pushing forward

To do all I can to honor you and the life you lived

 

I don’t want to say goodbye, so I won’t

Instead I will say, “See you later.”

Dear friend, I feel confident that we will meet again

In a place where all will be well for us all

Death will not tear us apart

 

I do miss you greatly, I can’t pretend I don’t hurt

I have cried and will continue to cry for you

But, I will also live the remainder of my life to its fullest

That’s what I’d want you to do for me

I promise to always keep you in my thoughts and in my heart
