I Shall Accept You

Updated on September 9, 2008

I shall accept you with open arms

As my pulse quickens and my heart flutters

The wait has been so very long..the price seems high

I hasten towards you, rushing my words

Not sure this moment of why I feel this way

BUT please stay and please never go away

For the time has finally arrived

When our hearts can truly be as one

I trust my life, my love as well as my heart

To become one with you..my soul thrives on your Being

My life is now to become whole

As I accept your open arms to carry me home

      Dafla...My sweet one am so very sorry to hear this...My prayers to you..I do hope she didn't suffer...but you know we are born to die and she is in a much better place right now...and do make her proud by being a good, caring ,loving person..which I am sure you are...Please ,please feel free to e-mail me if you need to talk...

      I do realize how very difficult this can be and is right now...but my dear taking your own life will not bring her back, and would she really want that?  Her spirit is there watching over you...Listen for her..Listen for the whispers your heart gives in your dreams...((((BIG HUG))))  and know everyone wishes you peace ...feel free to express yourself here...we ALL care...I am thankfull you commented to me sweetie...and though I am not sure I helped...I am praying for YOU..G-Ma :o) hugs

      I read this on a fortuitous day. My mother died two days ago, and I have been struggling with how to go on. I feel like I've lived as much of my life as I care to now. I don't really believe that people who take their own lives go to hell, but I don't want to find out.

      Hi, G-Ma! When I think of Home, I know it will be a beautiful wondrous place because there will be loads and loads of love there. And I know I too find my home here on earth when I experience loads and loads of love here. Here, there, everywhere, His love always makes me feel I am home. Hahaha Reading your poem brought out beautiful feelings within me. And all the loving comments made by everyone. :) Thanks G-Ma.

      home is wherever you are G-ma --- for me you are home expressed. you never fail to make me feel i'm home - where love abounds, where we can just BE, where we can share, where we can love, where we feel safe, where we feel valued. welcome home! hugs:)

      Nana you would be here for a long long time spreading love and joy to every sad soul who comes your way. Not everyone has a heart like yours thats why people like me need you so much. You are hearby ordered to stay put in this world and never to walk into any light till i say its ok for you to do so...
