#18 Reflections An ending maybe or not

An ending maybe or not
By Mary K. Mennenga

Then someone we love dies
The effect they had on us is a part of who we are
How  long we knew them isn't important
What we've gained having had them in our life is!
Each time we let our heart touch another
We get a chance to see life from a different perspective
It's a gift we gave each other for no one sees the same
Realizing the heart is capable of holding a lifetime of loves
And it always has room enough for more
The person isn't truly gone when
You've made a place for them within your heart
And as you walk your path through life
Your heart will help to guide your way

I Love this poem, thought! It reminds me of my Mom, she has a part in my heart. She will always be with me, even if she passed away 6 years ago...
