In Loving Memory

Evan and Kim
Please know that Iím always embracing you,
closer to you in spirit now
than ever before.
I know that this part of our lives seems difficult,
but I know that you will come to understand
that I had to make a rather difficult choice.
There I was, enjoying the shallow part of time,
my youth --carefree and full of laughter.
Then, as I began to drift into the deep,
my soul was confronted with a decision.
Can you imagine how scared I was.
I panicked for a minute, even struggled for just a while.
But, that which had created me through your love,
said that it was time.
But how could it be.
I said that I had so much left to do.
Then, a voice whispered to me that my work was already done,
I mentioned that I didnít want to leave you alone.
Again, a reply came suggesting that I would be closer to you than ever before.
I could hear my heart beat
just as if I was still in your womb.
For the first time I closed my eyes to discover light.
Mom, try to understand what I wish to share with you.
No longer do you have to worry about where I am,
for today and tomorrow
I am everywhere that my dreams could once only take me.
I can now see all that you hoped for,
and I want you to know that I love you
for showing me heaven on earth.
Please promise me
that you will get through this and be strong,
Just like all the things that you and I have made it through,
I will be by your side this time as well, and forever more.
Thereís so much more that we have to do,
And there are some things for which that I still need your help.
I donít want people to remember me,
I want them to feel my presence and that special love that we share.
I want your smile to reflect the warmth of my heart,
and please allow your steps to lead you
to the dreams that you shared with me.
Please, fight through the pain
to find the peace,
and know that there is where
I will forever be.
Donít be afraid to call my name,
I am here.
like a butterfly,
must struggle to free itself
from one dimension into the next.
From this challenge comes the strength
that provides for the beauty that we all enjoy.
Remember the friends and family that we love so much,
please keep them in your thoughts,
and share them with me in your conversations and dreams.
At this time it may be appropriate to say
that I would be missing you,
but it brings me great joy to tell you that
I am always here.
Loving you always,
"Your Chosen Son"
