She walks her hallowed halls
Looks inside the empty room
A tear falls from her eye
Her work is very important
She connects souls who need each other
from a bird’s-eye view
She cares about them all
She understand their struggles
She is able to offer them comfort
And it gives her great joy
She tried to live a life with no regrets
And she succeeded
With the exception of one
To take her job
She had to leave the earthly realm
And her baby boy
The essence of her heart
Faced with the decision
Which wasn’t really hers
She had to fulfill her purpose
She had to choose the job for which she had been groomed
The world needed her gentle love
Her first day on the job…her very first connection
She took care of her baby boy
She put every ounce of energy
And skill into this one
To make sure her baby would know love
To make sure he was protected
And to nurture the sweetest soul of her seed
It was the first time that tear fell
She keeps the empty room
Not for sadness
Not for regret
But just for a reminder of what she had to leave
To be able to create such happiness in the world
She reminds herself
That she only left him in bodily form
For she could never leave from her soul
She checks in on his life
She sends a barrier of love to surround him
She stands and wipes the tear from her eye
Walks out of the empty room
And gently closes the door behind her…

that is a very emotional story…
Thank you for reading…it is very emotional…I FEEL this woman! Hope your day is shiny!
What a wonderful and touching poem Lorrie, I just love it… I’ll tell you more very soon, I know you have a busy day 😉 ♥♥♥
Thank you my dearest!!! You light up my life and I am so grateful to you 🙂 Blessitude ♡♡ And the answer is a GIANT YES!!!! 😉
Quite beautiful Lorrie, and so tenderly expressed. It seems the lot of the mother is one of sacrifice and giving, whether in this realm or others. H <3
Hi Hariod! Thank you my friend. And yes, your words ring a bell of truth. Could you see the woman in the cloud? I hope you have a super beautiful day ♡♡
Far right of shot, face pointed skywards with a tearful left eye?
YES!! Hariod!! 😉 ♡
The call to growing depth never ends! Peace!
Hi Dennis! So nice to see you 🙂 And I am grateful for that! ♡
That poem almost broke my heart. The ultimate sacrifice of love. So true that we never really leave each other.
Ah! Marlene…I’m so happy it touched you so!! I almost titled it ‘Sacrificial Love’! I hope you are super duper!! ♡♡
I am always super duper. 🙂 I know about that kind of love. The highest form. I’m just no poet so I’m glad there are people like you in the world to verbalize it so beautifully.
You feed my soul…always!! Love to you ♡♡
A touching journey, Lorrie. If I followed correctly, the mother was forced to make a difficult decision between a calling that resonated with the deepest fiber of her being, and remaining physically present to her little boy. It expresses the deep conflicts we sometimes experience in this life– the confusion and the apparent need for sacrifice… and the conundrums that occur when we are faced with either/or divergences that can literally tear us down the middle… For me this is the place where suffering and love seem to co-exist in our hearts, and it is all too familiar a position to find ourselves in as part of the “human experience”… One of the miracles of healing I think, is the eventual removal of the dimension of “sacrifice” from our deepest love… Realizing that everyone everywhere is held by the greatest Love we can imagine, and that it cannot be otherwise, and that no portion of Love is lost through the unfolding of ever-changing circumstances, our Love is freed to fly everywhere it is needed…
Ah! Michael, I just love your response! This line reverberated to my soul, “and that no portion of Love is lost through the unfolding of ever-changing circumstances…” What a beautiful thought, a truly wonderful realization. You also brought up healing and I can attest to the fact that there is no healing without love, and there is no love without forgiveness. Thank you for adding the depth of your love here on my blog. Blessitude ♡
Wow Lorrie! This rings with power and emotion, and feels as if you lived this. I was feeling tingles reading it. There must a message for me. to love and following our purpose…. <3

A touching poem Lorrie. Your words express true love and sometimes that means pain and sacrifice in our life. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Karen! Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m happy this one resonated with you…I believe in this love with all my heart ♡♡ Hope everything is well in your world!
A touching and tender poem, Lorrie. Very beautiful, of deepest love. Thank you for sharing.
Hi Tiny!! I’m so happy you stopped by and that you could feel this one 🙂 I got the most beautiful photo in the mail 😉 ♡♡
I felt so sad reading this, but also inspired by the courage and strength of this woman Often, I have prayed a barrier around my children to protect them. After reading this, I will make sure the barrier holds an abundance of love around them. Abundant love to you, Lorrie! This is a beautiful tribute.
Thank you my dear friend! I think the feelings I had when I wrote this and when I think about it are exactly what you said…a profound sadness and yet inspiration as well. As a mother to a son it is especially moving in my heart, and it makes me cherish every moment with him. Much inspiration and beautiful love to you JoAnne ♡♡
Oh wow Lorrie. This is very heart-wrenching. This poor woman. Is this a true story?
It is based on information I know about this family…and it felt like this was their truth! It is sad and yet there is a peace that exists knowing that she will always live in his heart! Thank you dear Staci…your sweet soul shines ♡♡
