A Poem of Comfort

A Poem of Comfort


Someone sent me this poem when my Mom died and somehow it touched my heart. I have sent it to others on paper that has a cloud and sky background. ~Anne

When somebody dies, a cloud turns into

an angel, and flies up to tell God

to put another flower on a pillow.

A bird gives the message back to

the world, and sings a silent prayer

that makes the rain cry. People dis-

appear, but they never really go away.

The spirits up there put the sun to

bed, wake up grass, and spin the

earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you

can see them dancing in a cloud during

the day-time, when they're supposed

to be sleeping. They paint the rain-

bows and also the sunsets and make

waves splash and tug at the tide.

They toss shooting stars and listen to

wishes. And when they sing wind-

songs, they whisper to us, don't

miss me too much. The view is nice

and I'm doing just fine.
