A Sigh Escapes My Lips


I sense Death today.
My body,
easing,
Itís grip.

My Spirit anticipates.
The silence,
of,
my heart.

Love surrounds this wasted body.
My daughterís,
sweet,
perfume.

Knowing it was my favorite.
Her touch,
upon,
my hand.

Words pour into my soul.
His Words,
release,
of Peace.

Thanksgiving covers sorrow.
Prayers,
I hear,
them speak.

My request for those I love.
The same,
one,
for all.

God warm them with Your Presence.
Protect,
guide,
embrace.

A sigh escapes my lips.
Of relief,
unto,
His Hands.

Life whisks me away.
His Smile,
His Arms,
my Home.

What a beautiful picture of the death of a saint.

Yes, beautiful way to go.

Hi dear Pat. This was indeed beautiful, but unfortunately it was under the minimum word count allowed for challenge entries. The minimum is 150 words and the maximum is 750. Your beautiful poem came in at just 94 words. If you can't add any more to a poem in the future, just include an opening or closing paragraph (preferrably not just scripture). Keep writing Pat. You have a lovely gift. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)

This was heartwrenching to read. I recently suffered a major loss in my life and thankfully she knew the Lord.

Your wonderful poem reminded me of my dear aunt and her impact on my life. Thank you so much.
