The sun came up in the usual way,
nudging me back from the shadows.
My heart felt light for the first
time in so many days since I first found out.
Nature whispered to my soul,
“Come out and see the magic that waits!”
I said a prayer, as I have each morning,
since the call came.
The birds were there, as I knew they would be,
but they seemed different somehow,
Some bowed their heads in silent reverence
while others watched with keen intent.
So many winged creatures, so much beauty
and it filled me with peace and comfort.
as if they knew…
The world was somehow different,
less and more, but not as before.
Every eye, each sound, seemed filled with knowing
as if they were showing
me the truth.
I have a friend who always said,
“Life is a school and we came to earn our angel wings.”
But she came with them in place,
and left with greater grace
than I can ever hope to attain.
Someone who saw me as I am
and reflected back only the beautiful things.
So much of me goes with you,
back into the cradle of eternity.
But I cannot feel lonely, for
I know you are always with me
and free from pain, you are
Graduated this life
