When Death Strikes..!

One of the saddest sights I’ve seen is when a loved one is carried out of his or her home, dead, cold and lifeless. Tears flow and sobs rack the air as the body is placed in coffin or funeral bier and taken to crematorium or cemetery.

Death is inevitable and nobody can escape this route out of life. We grieve for loved one for days on end and sometimes the ache and sadness never leaves us; it is there forever. I read this beautiful poem the other day and thought it would be balm to many people who miss a loved one sorely:

When you feel a gentle breeze

Touch you when you sigh

It’s a hug sent from heaven

From a loved one way up high.

If a soft and tender raindrop

Lands upon your nose

They’ve added a small kiss

As fragile as a rose.

If a song you hear fills you

With a feeling of sweet love

It’s a hug sent from Heaven

From someone special up above.

If you awaken in the morning

To a sparrow’s chirping song

It’s music sent from Heaven

To cheer you all day long.

If tiny little snowflakes

Land upon your face

It’s a hug sent from Heaven

Filled with Angel grace.

So keep the joy in your heart

If you’re lonely my dear friend

Hugs that are sent from Heaven

A broken heart will mend!

Aren’t they lovely lines? When my father passed away, my brother, a priest spoke at the funeral and his words gave me much comfort; I wish to share them with you: “Imagine,” he said, “a ship leaving the harbor full of people. At the quay, hundreds of friends and relative have come to wish them goodbye and the ship sails away to tearful farewells. It becomes smaller and smaller and finally disappears.

But somewhere across the ocean, another crowd stands at another harbor waiting for the same ship to arrive and as they see the same boat coming closer, there are smiles on their faces and soon hugs and embraces of joy are exchanged with the newly arrived loves ones.

So it is with our loved ones; they have left us but have been welcomed into new homes and are happy and joyous where they are now. You tearfully wish them goodbye over here and a heavenly Father welcomes them home with open arms! Now, tell me, is there any need to weep for them?

  1. We do feel pain and sorrow when someone , very close to our heart , departs . However , no sense in keep brooding over something which is inevitable .
    Life has to go on .
