My Divine Heavenly Helpers,
I call upon You
as I sit beside my loved one
wondering if they might be approaching
their final breath here on earth.
I feel the grace of sitting with them,
as something deep inside wells large
knowing this is a holy moment.
My heart feels so big,
and in this sacred moment
the feelings that flash feel like
I Am present in a twilight of shifting light
and I Am being enveloped
into the beauty of other ways
of seeing and knowing.
It’s funny, I thought I might be terrified
and overwrought with my sorrow,
which still lingers within me,
awaiting to walk me through the land of grief.
However, when I Am still,
so much gratitude and love fills the room
as I simply desire to hold my loved one
completely in my arms.
How do I scoop you up
so that I can hold you completely in my arms?
They say the heart also holds a womb,
an infinite womb, holding all of the possibilities
and variations of love's creative expression.
I want to scoop you up
and bring you into my HeartWomb
and dance with you there.
In this place there is no fear, no pain,
just pure love and gratitude.
This is where I Am with you!
Others look and they see me holding your hand.
Or, might they see
that I Am holding you
as you hold me
in the symphony of Love’s creation?
In this love space, I experience peace.
This is how I Am present with you.
Tears stream from my eyes as I cry and smile.
I thank our souls
for giving us this gift of this one last dance
on this earthly plane.
I do not fear the time
when your spirit takes flight.
I witness and celebrate
your ascent and your freedom.
When you shed your earthly vessel,
you will leave it behind,
no longer animated,
and we will remember how to give you back
to your God Self and Mother Gaia.
We will turn to our rituals and mourning,
and will cry you river of our tears.
We will hold each other,
supporting each other
allowing all of our feelings to bind us close
as we continue our dance of Love and Life.
And so it is.
