a friend of mine died.. she was a troubled soul.. always wanting to be accepted,, she just never understood that she was..the poem below is one that she wrote just before her death.. I believe that she found the peace she so wanted in life..
I will miss her.. deeply.
I pray alone on the
mountain tops of night.
It is so calm, so still. All is dark; yet coming closer and closer
to me is a robe of great brilliance.
I close my eyes in fear. It's the full sun.
He stops before me,
His presence pierces through my whole being yet consuming me not.
I kiss the earth before
brilliance. I let go and fly to ecstasy.
Oh, God, before such beauty I Surrender!
