The death and loss of a loved one, family or friend, is never easy. There are times when it comes unexpected and other instances when it arrives after a long period of time. I have experienced this kind of loss with dear friends of mine as well as family and relatives.
For me, I have always found comfort knowing that despite the hard and painful time I was going through, there was a promise and hope that I would see them again…whole, perfect, without pain and suffering.
I recently discovered the following poem, written by John F. Connor, that really gave me a beautiful image about what happens to our lost loved ones and their souls the moment they pass away from this earth.
It is simply a wonderful, heartwarming and beautiful little poem that I felt I needed to share. It is my hope that it will comfort someone today.
An Angel’s Hand
An angel whispered in my ear
Believe in me and have no fear,
Come with me and take my hand,
I will take you to another land.
A place of peace, a place of light,
Don’t be afraid, just hold on tight.
Your earth days are done but don’t be sad
Remember all the times you had;
Loved ones will join you, don’t despair,
You have many in Heaven waiting there.
Your body dies, your soul is free,
That’s why you get to fly with me.
