Welcome to Round 7 of Alphabe-Thursday, a weekly writing assignment from that darling schoolmarm, Jenny Matlock! We are starting a new series this week and here is my submission for the Letter "A".
I have always been awestruck at the Crepuscular rays (Angel's Stairs) of sunlight that emanate from the clouds, and have often thought about them guiding new souls on their ascension to Heaven. The following piece is not original (by me), but is very poignant, and very appropriate due to the recent disasters that have plagued not only Americans, but fellow citizens around the world. I acquired this piece from a friend, Mimi, who posted it shortly after the death of her son, Julian, from brain cancer.
And if I go,
while you're still here...
know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
--behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
--both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.
