“Our death is our wedding with eternity.”
Today we set my son’s ashes free into the ocean. It was a spur of the moment thing.
The day was magical and the ocean was warm..
The ocean received your body,
waves absorbed my tears.
I heard your song of freedom
whispering in my ears.
As you dance in cosmic vistas,
far from Earthly pain
your spirit keeps on soaring;
remembrance forever remains.
There are no goodbyes in heaven,
just a lucent diaphanous veil.
I touch you with my spirit
as though I’m interpreting braille.
Your path is festooned with flowers,
as far as the eye can see,
in a star bedazzled universe,
and as we drove home, this magnificent creature honored us with his presence….
