We turn into light around those we love

And though I know now that Heaven may be
only the mind’s fear of the wonders it imagines,
the way our best thoughts surprise us
and seem not to be our own, I like to believe

 

we turn into light around those we love,
or would have loved, had we known them,
and warn them through the blood
by ringing in their ears.

From “Ancestral Lights” by Deborah Digges

    I am pasting these ines from another blog

    I do know that if love transcends the boundaries of life and space and time, I have amassed more than enough to carry me safely to my next destination. And I hope that I have left enough behind to help light a path so that we may one day meet again.
