There are no words but tonight I am so so so sad to share that little miss 8 year old Faith that I have spoken about in my blog and so many of you given happiness to through your Facebook ‘Likes, ‘ has lost her battle with cancer. In return for her gifts of love and joy she, according to her mom, gained her angel wings tonight and so in her and her family’s honor, I found a poem that is so very touching. Please send all the love in your heart to her family as I can’t even begin to imagine the sadness they must feel, but big hugs and love and no matter where it comes from this compassion will hopefully help provide them some comfort to take with them tonight and in the days that follow.
Dearest Mommy and Daddy”
When you wonder the meaning of life and love
Know that I am with you
Close your eyes and feel me kissing you in the gentle breeze across your cheek
When you begin to doubt that you shall never see me again
Quiet your mind and hear me
I am in the whisper of the heavens
Speaking of your love.
When you lose your identity
when you question who you are, where you are going;
Open your heart and see me.
I am the twinkle in the stars, smiling down upon you.
Lighting the path for your journey.
When you awaken each morning, not remembering your dreams,but feeling content and serene,
Know that I was with you, filling your night with thoughts of me.
When you linger in the remnant pain, wholeness seeming so unfamiliar, think of me.
Know that I am with you, touching you through the shared tears of a gentle friend easing the pain.
As the sunrise illuminates the desert sky; as that breathtaking brilliance awakens your spirit, think of our time together-all to brief but ever brilliant.
When you were certain of us together, when you were certain of your destiny, know that God created that moment in time just for us.
I am with you always……
Thank you Faith for your love, hope, inspiration and incredible positivity in the face of such difficultly. You were a brave little warrior princess and thank you for allowing us to be part of your life even if it was only briefly.
