Hello Mrs. Smith, how are you today
I am sorry to hear your life long love
has recently passed away.
I know you loved him dearly
I know he loved you too.
You have trouble thinking clearly
You are left wondering what to do
You feel him close to you at night.
But his absence gives you pain.
You see his form just out of sight
And you think you’ll go insane
I settle back into my chair deep breathing
is my way
Of tuning into Mr. Smith maybe
There’s something he needs to say.
I see a man Mrs. Smith tall, lean and a little gray
he has a crooked smile ms Smith
but he is missing his right leg.
He lost his leg the day he died she said
as her voice began to fade
Then tears trickled down her grief worn face
“Oh my god that must be Wade”.
Mr. Smith says he loves you,
he is sorry he had to leave.
He has stayed with you after he had passed
to help you while you grieve.
His vibration started to envelop me there
was a lot more he had to say.
So I settled back into my chair and
let him have his way.
Tell little Wade I love him and
that his daddy is ok.
Tell him I‘ll see him in his dreams
and in his heart I’ll always stay.
Tell him that I will be there
If he needs me anytime.
I’ll miss holding him when
he gets scared.
But I will hold him in his mind.
You both made my life worth living
Those memories I will keep.
Like the night you kissed my shoulder
when you thought I was asleep.
I’ll miss holding you against me and
the sweet smell of your dark hair.
Your soft warm body felt so good to me
I thanked god that you were there.
Don’t be afraid to love again
It’s no disrespect to me.
No matter what you do my love
our love will always be.
I wish for you the best of life
That has always been my way.
When you love another, I
will be happy too that day.
Tina, please know I love you
I haven’t gone away.
Your are in my heart and soul my love
We will be together again one day.
I felt a shutter consume me as
Mr. Smith went on his way.
Mrs. Smith just sat and stared at me
Not knowing what to say.
Through tear filled eyes she forced a smile
She said “I have just one thing to say”
The things Wade said
you couldn’t have known
was what I needed to hear today.
I watch Mrs. Smith as she left the room
lighter than when she came.
Full of hopes for a bright tomorrow
as her life gets rearranged.
I felt sadness for Mrs. Smith
But I said all I could say.
So with a cleansing breath released it
I had four more to go that day.
