The Universe Responds


To all the lovely people who left this earth too soon

How can life feel so long one day, yet short the next?

I wanted to tell you several things before you left

Please believe me, my heart said what it could at the time

I’m just grateful for having the chance to say goodbye

Last night I went outside and looked up to the heavens

I read a poem that said when someone dies, you throw your grief to the sky

The Universe responds and paints that sky shades of pinks and purples

At some point, anger sounds like thunder and sadness feels like rain

Even the wind feels like you are near and just walked past me

Letting go is an ongoing journey

Reminiscing about times together and feeling grateful for precious moments

They say when someone dies, they become your guardian angel; especially a child

If I ever have a question, I know I can ask you anytime

Now you are pain-free, healthy, happy, safe, and peaceful

Reuniting with the ones you loved and lost once before

I take comfort in believing this for the time being

Envisioning your happiness makes me happy

This is my emotional rescue

Life is interesting how we are more connected than disconnected

I know I’ll see you again one day

We can paint the sky together

But for now, I throw my grief to the ground

To hope and watch happiness bloom on earth once again

As the Universe responds


All my love to you ❤

    • Hello hello Khushboo! So nice to see you here again 🥰 Thank you for your lovely comments and I’m sorry to hear about two great losses in India. Lots of love and prayers to you too my friend xx


  2. It has been a long time since I visited wordpress and written any posts, I have found it so hard to put things into words. Reading yours gave me great comfort. I lost my mum in February and feel so lucky that I was able to be with her and say goodbye. A light went out for me on the day she left and each day since has been very difficult and at times unbearable. I am thankful for so much, especially in the difficult times that we all find ourselves in. Your words resonated with me and every day when I am alone in my thoughts I look up to the sky and talk to my mum. My comfort being that she is at peace and reunited with my dad. Thank you for sharing Julie x
