    Lesson Of Spirit

    Lessons of Spirit
    In memory of HEATHER SHILO 5/1/97 – 4/27/06

    I can find you here.
    In the silence, if I listen.
    We would walk here often.
    You were always by my side.
    One with me in thought,
    You were full of love and pride.
    I was always in a hurry, briskly I would walk.
    You’d stop me in mid canter.
    I’d pull you right along.
    I would refuse to listen,
    Not hearing your love song.
    You called me here today.
    Today I choose to listen.
    For the loss of your spirit,
    Leaves me with an empty heart;
    Empty like an abyss, void of life, at your depart.
    You called me here today;
    Back to this familiar place where we could meet.
    You are asking me to feel;
    The softness of the sand and ground beneath my feet,
    To smell the richness of the soil, the crisp sweet salty air;
    You ask I set you free to explore the wonders dwelling there.
    Yesterday, I silenced restricting pain placed upon your soul.
    Today, I chose to walk and run with you, to let my life unfold.
    I feel the gentle breeze like your breath warm upon my face,
    In the melody of the birds I hear you speak your silent grace.
    The time had come my lesson learned.
    It was time for you to pass.
    Unselfishly you loved me with a spirit so un-daunting,
    If only to bring me home, to myself at last.
    Today I walk my Heather, but not with leash in hand.
    Today I know I walk not alone, I be a wiser woman.

    Absolutely beautiful!

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
