It's so quite as we sit in this simple sanctuary.
The cathedral faintly smelling of incense and flowers.
Candles burned in little rows in a corner,
people coming silently breathing prayers then leaving.
The smallest voice, from above, breaks the silence.
So beautiful, so fragile a sound....
And following this child's open comes the chorus
Echoing through the churches high molded ceilings
as it did my mind.
They stood bathed in a rainbow of light. The effect of the
sun's light pouring through the elaborate stained glass.
It burned my heart and stung my eyes with tears
Not so many times have I cried, in public
Not so many times have I cried, for all to see
Usually my tears are hidden deep inside,
falling from my minds eyes, but not for all to see
The world has truly been cruel this time
The chorus of children's voices cut through my thoughts
and demanded my attention.
They were like seraphim from heaven
Sent to sing for the saints,
to give hope, and ease pain.
They looked towards heaven as they sang
As if their only audience was God,
and His ears were worthy of this melody
I smiled beneath dark veils,
They sang of heaven, of what it would be like
Where she had gone
If only you could hear them.
Describing their sound is not as easy as
describing a sunset or a moon rise or even a feeling
But the music is it's own, there is no color, sun, or moon
there are just the notes and the emotion they bring
I can say this my heart which is aching is soothed by
this little aria
I close my eyes , battling the tears that I feel coming
And when I open them you're still there lifeless
And the battle is lost, The tears come until I can see no longer
I had forgotten to easily you were already asleep.
I didn't realize I would miss you
Just a few days ago you were smiling.
You look like you could come back at any moment...
I wish you would,
We could talktogether again,
and maybe I would listen,
What if we could live life in slow motion rewind
That's something we never tried when I was a child, rewinding a smile
My tears fall on your face, but you don't flinch.
And now I kiss you goodbye not for a day, or a week or a year,
but until my own death
how scary a perspective
Not so many times have I cried, in public
Not so many times have I cried for all to see.
But the tears have come today and I'm drowning in them.
It's ok though.
You are worth all of my tears, all of my words, and thoughts
Your worth the notes the angels sing,
And the echo that will last forever in my mind.
I didn't realize how much I would miss you.

I liked that part the best.
When was this written?

actually this is old but my grandmother passed last week and I really never liked her, but when i was there knowing that it was it and she was gone i guess there was just a breach in that hard exterior i built up and i was sad...this work really said exactly how i felt...funny how things in your past can still mean something an have signifigance in the future..

Wow is all i can say... your words placed me back at my grandmothers funeral "drowning" in my tears... Honestly I had to fight them back as I read... POWERFUL...what a gift to write something so personal yet broad enough to invoke emotions in strangers **clapping**
