The Same Tear


She walks her hallowed halls

Looks inside the empty room

A tear falls from her eye

Her work is very important

Very satisfying

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…



Lorrie ❤

  1. 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.


    1. 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 ♡♡


    1. 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 ♡♡
