About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #41 - The Transition

Two poems today (#40 and #41)

Who can say
At the end of the day
Who lives on and who goes to sleep?
Who crosses through the door toward the light …
Takes flight

You know not these things while here you live
But know to each the Lord does give
Another chance

There’s so much more that you can’t see
Beyond your sight, a world that’s free
Of pain and suffering and misery
No longer will these come to thee

Without the body you will fly
For you rest not when you do die
You live as spirit, free from pain
Treasures beyond your knowledge you will gain
A world where greed and fear and pride
Do not reside

Fear it not this change called death
It’s just a passage
It comes to all and brings no pain
All the world will you gain
When this transition do you make
Your loved ones’ hands again to take

Of this one thing you can be certain
There’s no final act, no final curtain
Perhaps an intermission
For this you’re given permission
To rest and prepare
For what lies there
Upon the next stage

We wait for you with open arms.

  1. What a blessing this poem brings to each of us. The last line puts it all in perspective, "We wait for you with open arms." If only we could take heed of what is said here and put aside our fear of death.
