She Went Home Today

She Went Home Today

We watched you growing tired
In your eyes the pain we'd see
And as God reached out towards you
He whispered "come to me"

As our eyes filled with teardrops
The angels took you by the hand
We just couldn't let you go
And they said "we understand"

We'll give you a few more moments
And we sadly said good-bye
As your spirit rose peacefully
Then floated towards the sky

Though in body we are apart now
The memories will always stay
And I know without a doubt
We'll be together again someday

I wrote this poem that will be printed on my Mom's Memorial cards and passed out to family and friends at her funeral on Thursday.

We love you Mom, your memory will
live on forever within us all

    This is written with much care, Luanne. We are sad when someone dies, heartbroken if they were closely related. The real pain though, comes from feeling left behind, because no one really dies, Luanne. I hope you will take my word for it, because I had a NDE and I know it to be true. No one really dies, and so we are not left here. I believe our loved ones become our guardian angels after they pass over to the other side.

    Take care, crazy chicky, make your mama proud <3 xxx Ingrid

    Oh my gosh Luannneee. I am in love with the fact that you are putting this on her card! It feels good to incorporate our writing in respect to our family member. I wrote my Grandmas Obituary In the paper and it just felt so good to honor her in that way...

    So sorry again cyber mommmyyy all I want to do is hug you. She is in a better place where there is no pain, no struggling, no tears. Always remember that when you get sad....I love you very much and I'm here for you :)
