Evening, Wisdom and Beauty!!

For the families in Connecticut .
Gone Away
© Diana Blokzyl
An Angel whispered
take my hand and
come with me
you're work here is done.

I went away to a place
where there's no tears, nor sorrow
only laughter and smiles,
there will always be a Tomorrow.

As I move amongst the clouds.
I'll look down and smile upon you,
while the angels
sing a heavenly song.

I am not alone
all who went before
are here
they awaited my return.

I know you'll grieve
and wish I was still here
I am here in the memories
you hold dear.

Remember how much I
love you
and know I took your
love with me.

I did not wish for
you to cry, nor feel sad.
My pain is gone and
I am Free!

Soon you'll come to me
until then
God will be with you
Just as He's with me.

Tremendous poem and photos... Yes---we will miss those precious children (and adults)---but they are in a much better place from where we are!!!!! God Bless them all.

Great post Sylvia. It takes me a while to figure out in words how I feel inside about such a tragedy. Posts like yours help.

How can such things happen in a place so full of opportunity and learning? It makes no sense.

It is days later and I still mourn for the children and the hero's who gave their lives to try to save them. I mourn for our country that has strayed from a path that would never allow such carnage ... I mourn for all of us who will live with this pain and for the survivors in Connecticut who now face the hardest struggle to try to find normalcy in their devastated lives. If we pray for those who we lost, we must also pray for those who are left to pick up the pieces. This is America ... we are better than this. I pray that we find our way back to compassion.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
