The Bond That Outlives Death

Updated on May 23, 2017

A Poem Dedicated to My Dear Friend

To A Soul Everlasting

She continues in her now shrinking body
but her spirit becomes bigger and bolder every day;
the light of her being becomes more steady;
not the flickering light of yesterday...

Her mind almost newly formed
with increased sensibility to all of nature
and to others faults she sees beyond
forgiving them for any wrongs...
healing wounds
in the waters of an eternal spring
which in her divine grace she has found.

She perceives beauty that those
around her do not see...
blind as others may be
her vision becomes more acute;
where those attribute insignificance,
she discerns meaning and worth.

Her soul forever reaching
toward the destiny that it seeks
transcends the Earth's tallest peak...
for there is no limit,
no boundaries that
to an intrepid soul can inhibit...

Among earthbound shadows
the light within her continues to burn...
her soul now free to soar,
to a place where only the purest souls can inhabit;
a place of higher vision and truth
where we meet our Creator-
and return once more...

Where the sweetest music can be heard
and the sacred words
of a poet as fitting tribute to a radiant flower...
before finding its resting place
in the garden of paradise.

-Lora Hollings

Inspire Us to Be More

Even though the passing of our loved ones from this earth to a spiritual realm can be emotionally traumatic for us, our cherished memories of them can serve to inspire us to do more with our lives to make the world a more loving place and dedicate our good work to them.

Many feel that a loving spirit has intervened on their behalf to keep them safe from harm or in guiding them on a path in life that is good for them.


My Angel Gabriel by Lamb

I've chosen this song because I feel its words reflect the legacy my beautiful friend left on this earth and how the cherished memories that I have of her give me the courage to face my fears, to deal with adversity, have faith in myself to accomplish the goals that I've set for myself, and extend a helping hand to those in need as she was such a giving person so full of love.

Lyrics to the Song "Gabriel" by Lamb

"Gabriel"

I can fly
But I want his wings
I can shine even in the darkness
But I crave the light that he brings
Revel in the songs that he sings
My angel Gabriel

I can love
But I need his heart
I am strong even on my own
But from him I never want to part
He's been there since the very start
My angel Gabriel
My angel Gabriel

Bless the day he came to be
Angel's wings carried him to me
Heavenly

I can fly
But I want his wings
I can shine even in the darkness
But I crave the light that he brings
Revel in the songs that he sings
My angel Gabriel
My angel Gabriel
My angel Gabriel

My angel Gabriel
My angel Gabriel
My angel Gabriel
My angel, my angel, my angel
Gabriel, Gabriel
