In The Light
Author Unknown 
A shadow of joy flickered; it is me.
I told you I wouldn’t leave.
My spirit is with you.
My memories, my thoughts are imbedded deep in your heart.
I still love you.
Do not for one moment thing that you have been abandoned.
I am in the light.
In the corner, in the hall, the car, the yard –
These are the place I stay with you.
Love does not diminish, it grows stronger.
I am the feather that finds you in the yard,
The dimmed light that grows brighter in your mind,
I place our memories for you to see.
We lived in our special way,
A way that now has its focus changed.
I still crave your understanding and
Long for the many words of prayer and good fortune for my soul.
I am in the light.
As you struggle to adjust without me,
I watch slightly.
Sometimes I summon up all the strength of my new world to make you
Notice me.
Impressed by your grief, I try to impress my love deeper into your consciousness.
You should know that the fountain of youth does exist.
My soul is now healthy.
Your love sends me new found energy.
I am adjusting to this new world.
I am with you and I am in the Light.
Please don’t feel band that you can’t see me.
I am with you wherever you go.
I protect you, just as you protected me so many times.
Talk to me and somehow I will find a way to answer you.
Mother, Father, son or daughter it makes no difference.
Whatever our connection-friend or even foe – I see you with my new eyes.
I am learning to help wherever you are, wherever I am needed.
This can be done because I am in the Light.
When you feel despair, reach out to me.
I will come.
Our love for you truly does transcend from Heaven to Earth.
Finish your life with the enthusiasm and zest.
That you had when we were together in the physical sense.
You owe this to me, but more importantly, you owe it to yourself.
Life continues for both of us.
I am with you because I love you and I am in the Light.
