Love Everlasting….

 

Hi everyone,

It’s winter time here in Perth, Western Australia and the weather is cold and rainy. Please, come in and take a seat by the fire, make yourself comfortable.

Today I wish to reflect on a very personal and delicate matter…love and loss! In this world each and every one of us are destined to experience both. One does not exist without the other. Both love and loss can be painful and change our lives immensely. Sometimes the grief of loss can seem all too consuming and too delicate a topic to discuss. To everyone out there who has experienced loss…I am so sorry.

With the loss of my dearly loved father, this is a journey I’ve recently embarked on myself. What a surprise it was to find that by listening to music I knew he enjoyed would bring me comfort.  By doing so, I was filled with a sense of peace and closeness. One song in particular inspired me to write a poem I titled ‘Love Everlasting’.

I hope that by sharing this, it may lighten the load for others who may be taking the same journey as I…

 

‘Love Everlasting’

Love doesn’t have to be expressed in words,

it can be conveyed just as powerfully in what we do.

And sometimes even more profoundly in what we don’t do.

 

Perhaps it’s the sharing of quiet moments,

silently taking comfort in one another and

merely appreciating one’s presence.

Such silent admiration can be just as tender

and meaningful as whispers of sweet nothings.

 

Remember with joy in your heart,

time stands still for no one.

Some day God’s gentle breeze shall blow and call each of us home.

 

As a glowing light you’ve loved, relied upon,

taken comfort from and admired,

grows weak or is gone.

Rejoice…rejoice in the moments shared,

words spoken or unspoken, a glance, a smile or a tender embrace.

Allow your senses to experience the familiarity such thoughts posses,

let joy uplift you, embrace the sense of peace and grace as love surrounds you.

 

If you permit such sentiments into your heart and mind,

you will sense a closeness to that light and feel their love once again.

Love is after all…everlasting!

written by Kez

 

This poem (dedicated to my Dad) was inspired by Andrea Bocelli’s “Your Love” and a dear friend who, through a gift, reminded me that love is everlasting.

 

 

Thank you for reading and listening.

Pax Vobiscum

  1. Dear Kez, I’m so sorry to hear of your father’s passing. It’s never easy to lose one’s parents. I know how you must feel because I lost my parents within a few short years after I married. I truly believe their spirit is always with us through our grief. Thank you for sharing your inspirational words and Bocelli’s beautiful song.

    Sending love & hugs your way,

  2. Dear Kez!
    I am deeply sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I know the feeling is immense right now, your grief is dep and hurts so much. Also I know that it will be easier with time. Time heals as they say, also he will always be with you in your heart. Memories are yours to cherish.
    I lost my mother, my only brother and last Summer I last my father. I know it is no consolation. Give time to grief, to remember, to cherish, to honor your fathers memory.
    Thank you for sharing your feelings and thoughts with your poem an Bocelli’ s beautiful song.
    Peace be with your father.
    Sending hugs and love your way. Stay strong dear friend from far far away.

    Pax Vobiscum
