Soul

 

I will leave
and shake this world like an autumn leaf--
and bequeath the best of me to ashes,
a fond memory of what I was
to familiar minds who knew me best.

The rest will wonder
who it was they didn't know,
and wish for me back
but my stubborn soul won't go.

It will dress in heavenly fashion,
flaunt robe and halo,
wings and staff,
cling to clouds
and sing on the wind
a new resident in heaven,
happy to be among the living--
at the feet of God.

About the Poet
I am a Christan mother, grandmother, wife, aspiring poet, and owner of a bed and breakfast with my husband of 37 years. I love to create an ambience of serenity in my home. I love soft music, the sounds of the birds in my yard, the whir of the ceiling fans,... Time has passed since the first time I wrote my Poet Bio...it has been three years now....in that time my life has changed drastically. We lost our beloved youngest child, our only son, to suicide. It has been devastating...shaking my faith to its core but not destroying it. I have not been inspired to write for quite some time now. I pray that I will be able to emerge from this pain and write with a new passion about my journey. Until that time I ask for prayers and that God will continue to speak to me and give me the peace that passes all understanding.
