I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep. I could see that you were crying , You found it hard to sleep
I spoke to you softly as you brushed away a tear, “its me, I haven’t left you. I am well , I am fine, and I am here.
I was close to you at breakfast and it wasn’t hard to see , You were thinking of the many times your hands reached out to me.
I was with you in the yard today. Your arms were getting sore, as I watched you work, I wished I could help you more.
I was with you at my grave today , you tend it with such care. I want to reassure you that I am not lying there.
I walked with you towards your house, as you fumble for your keys. I gently put my hand on you, I smiled and said “its me”. You looked so very tired and sank into your chair. I tried so hard to let you know , that I was standing there.
As you sat there very quietly, I think you knew…. In the quiet of that evening I was very close to you
The day is over, I smile and say “Goodnight, I will see you in your dreams , now try to get some sleep “.
