A wonderful, heartwarming poem channeled from Alice, who is on the other side, and had committed suicide, comforting her sister, Catharine, who she left behind. Thank you, Catharine for giving us permission to share this powerful message with others who may be grieving over a loss of a loved one. It is so beautiful, so powerful, and carries so much wisdom!
A Vision of Alice
I saw you in a vision
In the circle of my soul.
You came to me so stealthfully.
So peaceful and so whole.
You smiled from deep within you
With such elegance and grace.
There was no sign of sorrow
To be seen upon your face.
Not a word was ever uttered
But our hearts spoke one to one,
For I knew within an instant
You were at peace with what you’d done.
There was a wholeness to your spirit
That I’d never seen on earth,
That completeness you’d been searching for
From the moment of your birth.
You stood before me peacefully
Your spirit finally free.
And I knew in that moment
You no longer needed me.
For you the bond had been broken
You’d gone your separate way.
The need to live for others
Did not direct your day.
You’d come to give a message
One you hoped I’d hear and heed
For you were not the only one
Your death had finally freed.
You wanted me to let you go.
Not for your sake, but for mine.
For holding on to what was gone
Would bring no peace to mind.
It was time for me to love myself
And be the best me I could be.
That’s what you wanted me to know,
That you death had set me free.
In love our spirits parted
And a calmness settled in,
For you were where you wished to be . . . .
And I could live my life for me.
