In Loving Memory Poems Dedicated To Family and Friends Lost In the 911 Attack
How do I treasure you? How keep you close – without despair?
You will no longer be
Here to comfort me.
As I shake myself awake – up from the heavy dross of pain,
Of the knife that tears at my heart,
Of the grief, of missing you so much I ache…
I cry again, alone in my leaden hollow emptiness –
Until the white butterfly catches my eye.
It flutters by,
Encircling me in its whimsical angel wings,
Streaming with sparkling wonder energy,
Touching the song that fills my heart again,
Opening my face to this brimming smile
that reminds me …
That when I let you be,
When I let you go,
I see your glow.
Then I know…
You are always here –
Playing, dancing, gently loving, laughing…
Just as you always were in Spirit.
You are here
I treasure you now – and the delight you bring when I open to you.
Your Presence fills me…
When I stand tall in my Self,
And know that, though you are not here now in body,
I am Not alone.
Your Love is with me.
And I know now, it always, always can be.
That’s my choice
It’s up to me.
I choose now – deep in every fiber of my being –
To hold you close,
And yet to set you free.
That is how I treasure you, Oh Precious Love of mine.
When we can release the pain and the stress that comes with the loss of our most beloved
family and friends in the 9/11 attack, the sadness remains. However, entwined in every fiber of that sadness
and grief is the great love that birthed it.
As we learn to release the fear – and the pain – more, the Love shines through more, and fills us.
And it is so huge! When we can open to it, we experience the Love more fully.
As human beings we are learning to live and hold the great blessing of that love. And as long as we live,
we can open more and more to it. May we learn to live filled with Love. Filled to overflowing.
You may want to try writing in loving memory poems as a way to dispel the grief and to find
alternative healing for your pain. Writing is a great release and opens up more space in the loving heart
of each of one. Any kind of writing works, even if it is angry, or funny. It brings freedom.
Another way to release pain, a great alternative healing approach to open and fill with the immense love
we have inside us, is guided meditation and relaxation. Stress and tension can be released and flow out
of you in a very short time with a great guided experience.
Even grief will dispel with the deep relaxation this type of guided meditation brings.
