Beyond Life’s Rainbow

Beyond Life’s Rainbow…

beyond life's rainbow

Wait beyond life’s rainbow for me,
where daffodils soak up the sun,
apple blossoms are thoughts of love,
and pink clouds of cherry blossoms
are as ephemeral as life itself.

Wait for me where Spring is eternal,
where life and new beginnings lead
us through our next life,
where once again we love and grow
ever more spiritual.

Let us carry our life lessons
forward and fear not what is to come,
for even falls and bad weather
will strengthen us
through all new journeys.

Each morning will dawn with
the sunshine of our love,
and each evening will
bring us peace
for a day well-lived.

My life tasks are now done
and night is coming on,
the moon throws shadows
of our life upon the wall,
as I drift off to deep slumber.

Wait then beyond life’s rainbow for me,
I shan’t tarry long,
for I cannot go on without you,
our journey has no end,
and we will continue on together.

Loss of a loved one is not easy to endure and often not easy to accept. It takes time to heal and go on with life without one who has been with us for so long in this life. Death is an end to what was and can be devastatingly painful. When you have faith in yourself and your beliefs the day will come when death can also be seen as a new beginning. When one has found the center and soul of their spirituality, comfort and peace will come to the heart and soul.

I am an author on TCE and write mainly in poetry and short stories. I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am currently an author on HubPages. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    What a beautiful poem, Phyllis! It is hard when a loved one dies but I love this hopeful look on reunion and the fact that the journey goes on.

    I haven’t read much here yet and I am still to publish something but I haven’t forgotten. Something will arrive in due course! I like the site and it’s good to know I can publish some fiction or poems and get feedback and give it without hassle!
