Poem I – Love of Family

Today as I peacefully rest, I am not alone.

Tonight, as I gently rise, I am not seeking peace.

I am not looking for peace on my last day, and nor will I spend this day searching.

I am not searching for meaning on my last day, nor will I spend this day looking.

My last day was built for love.

From the innocent voice of our newly sprouted seed to that last gentle kiss from our dearest child. I am not planning on searching for peace today.

With a familiar laugh heard down a crowded hallway to that heartfelt story told like it was the very first time. I am not preparing my family to start this new day.

They are ready.

I am preparing for the imagined sunrise emerging from the darkness.

The cloud of yesterday does not surround this room.

Love of family is all I see.

I am resting, but I stand tall knowing our love extends further than this bed we call home.

I found peace the moment I kissed the woman who I desperately reach out to touch.

I am confidently rising knowing the love of family is my greatest gift, my greatest love.
