Where Is My Loved One?
I give you this one thought to keep…
I am with you still… I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone.
I am with you still—in each new dawn.

You may be wondering:
Where is my loved one?
Is he or she alright?
Is my loved one in heaven?
It’s normal to ponder where your loved one is now. It doesn’t matter if you are religious or spiritual; most mourners believe people who die still exist in some form. Experts agree that after a person dies, we continue in another form of energy, and it is through this energy that we stay connected.
The spirit of your loved one is very much alive and with you. You may not be able to see, touch or hold your loved one, but perhaps you believe he or she is in heaven or is a shining star. Perhaps you imagine your beloved is now surrounded by all the friends and family he or she has ever known. Perhaps you know he or she is forever with you.
Your religious upbringing may influence what you believe. On the other hand, you don’t have to be a religious person to imagine what’s possible when it means you remain spiritually connected to your beloved.
What I know for sure:
Love never dies.
Love lives on.
Love is everlasting.
What do you believe?
Sending love and light,
