"Matthews Journey" By Melissa Smith (A Grieving
"It's time to go."
He told Matthew his young
"But wait, I'm not done!"
Matthew’s voice replied.
"The voice I hear each day is filled with such love,
she want me to stay?"
"She will understand."
He said, reaching out his hand.
"How?" Then Matthew’s voice said
"Have you told her of what you have planned?"
"She knows I love her"
He said with a gentle smile.
realized she would only have you for just a little while."
"Then you did tell her of your plans?"
"Yes, in her heart
she knows you are off to a better land."
"Will she miss me?"
Matthew’s voice said sadly.
"She will miss you
He said as a tear zigzagged down his face.
"Then I won't go, I'll stay right here."
Matthew said boldly.
like it here, it's so warm and cozy."
"But I have plans for you."
He said, reaching out his hand.
"What kind of plans?"
said, trying to understand.
"I'm going to take you to a wonderful land.
You will have others to visit with.
one's just like you.
Everywhere there is light,
and the sky is always blue."
That is my favorite color, but
don't want to leave her alone and sad."
Matthew said reaching for his hand.
"You won't leave her alone." He said.
I am giving you wings,
So you can see her each night to tuck her into bed."
" I will get to sing her lull-a-bye's and
tell her I love her
and she will hear all I've said?"
Matthew said hopefully.
He smiled. "She will know you are
In her heart.
She knows you will always care."
Matthew sat pondering, wondering what to do.
this place, and going somewhere new?
I do like going on trips.
Wings will bring me back, any time I choose.
I must leave her,
So guess I'm on my way.
I will come back often and tell her that I'm okay.
She will always feel
me deep within her heart,
I will leave my imprint upon her soul,
And she and I will never part.
Matthew turned to
him and said:
"I'm ready to go with you now,
Your words have helped me so.
I know she will love me even though I
have to go.
Just one more question before I leave-
This place we are going,
Does it have a name?
Is it as wonderful
as it seems?"
"Yes" he said.
"It's called Heaven, and it's a special place to go.
A place to rest, a place for love,
and also, a place to grow.
So come my child we're on a quest,
I'll take you home where you can rest.
for me and take my hand,
I'll lead you to my promise land."
In christian love, Melissa

Written by Melissa Smith for Matthew
I know of siblings, both happy and sweet,
This poem is about them both.
know nothing about each other.
She plays around the house and outside,
He also plays, but up in heaven,
boy who died.
She knows he was a child, so sweet and good,
Her brother, who was taken away.
know enough to miss him.
She herself is only a child, and doesn't know the pain,
But her mother thinks each day, each
About the little boy who died.
She yearns for her little sweet, little son,
Her light in her life,
her angel, her hope,
She can imagine his moves and his laugh,
His happy sounds, his smile, his walk,
look on his face,
On the little boy who died.
The little girl runs into her arms,
But the little boy
is there too, always.
With sadness she embraces them both,
In her heart the daughter blossoms,
But the son blossoms
The little boy who died.

Please Move in Me My Darling By Melissa Smith (A grieving mom)
O stir in me, my darling,
For now the sun must rise,
sun that will draw open
The lids upon your eyes.
O move in me, my darling,
The knife of day is bright
To loose the threads that bind you
Within the flesh of night.
Today I lose and find you,
yet my blood would keep,
Would weave and sing around you
The spells and songs of sleep.
None but I shall
As none but I have known,
Yet there's a death and a God
Who wait for you alone.
in me, my darling.............
In memory of Matthew
