now at peace

 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 Surrender

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,

dazzling, dancing.

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!

    I think I understand what your friend felt, Hope.

    Your loss is great, but please know that she is at peace. I truly believe that some of us weren't meant to find the happiness your friend hoped for; our task is to discover another kind and to devote ourselves to it completely.
    I find my greatest happiness in writing and am content with that.

    *offers a nice, long hug*
