Omniscient Soul Mate



Closing your eyes for what seems like a moment, you awaken to find that you’ve been transported… carried across a timeless threshold and placed in the arms of an embracing light. This white-hot love, pulsing with the intensity of a thousand suns, slices through the tender folds of your failing heart, releasing your captive soul from its fleshy cage. You surrender, smitten, oblivious to the waning world as it loosens its boney grip from your life.

“Where am I?” You ask, timidly engaging this omniscient soul mate.
Whispered answers nourish your hungry spirit.

It’s incomprehensible, this euphoric passage, yet you assimilate effortlessly, being drawn in deeper, immersed in a drenching love that awakens you to your true essence.

Your focused eyes sparkle with clarity, finally open to the breathless truth. You remember this place, and weep with joy at having found your way home.

Spirit and soul join hands, creating a perfect circle of love.

It is a new day.



Dedicated to my father-in-law, Griff, who made his journey home today, February 23, 2012.

We miss you all ready Dad.

I am so sorry for your loss, Leah. Your family is in my prayers.

Such beautiful words and imagery.

This was incredible Leah. Reading your words I can imagine what entering heaven will be like. I hope it was like this for my Mom. Every birthday and Christmas I would ask her what she wanted and she would always tell me "peace of mind". At least she finally has it.

I want to thank all of you for your kind words and loving support. It meant the world to me to be able to come here and feel your presence. This house has seem awfully empty with Mike gone to MA, making the sadness seem even more suffocating.
Thank you my friends. You are a treasure to me <3
