We Only Part To Meet Again (2)

Title Quote: John Gay

The very first time we had to depart
We don’t remember, but it’s deep in our heart
We left our true home up above
Coming to Earth to create joy and love

All too soon as a child we face the loss
Our parents leave us and we get cross
It’s a vital early lesson we learn then
We Only Part To Meet Again

As the years go by friendships do too
Some people have many, others a few
Romances are another tug at the heart
When often we have to be apart

Leaving our parents is a parting we make
It’s a difficult step for each side to take
Mothers especially feel the loss, but then
We Only Part To Meet Again

All these partings that through life go on
Show us that we can survive and be strong
Separating can hurt for a time, but we must
Let go and move on, in faith and trust

All of us one day will make the journey back
Leaving our bodies, no clothes to pack
They’ll be rejoicing from many in Heaven when
We Only Part To Meet Again

About This Poem

This was one of the times that when I had completed a poem using a quote as the title and theme and felt I wanted to write another but from a different perspective.

The first poem – We Only Part To Meet Again (1) –  I wrote for my family and friends, hoping that when my time comes to leave this Earthly life they will be able to read my words and feel uplifted by them. But, I am aware that the words I share also give meaning to others who read them too. 

Before writing this second poem I hadn’t given any thought to all the partings we experience throughout our lives, but of course, these are only physical partings because in reality we are never truly apart.. for we are all ONE.

Title Quote: John Gay

When my time comes to leave
I really do truly believe
The goodbyes may be hard, but then
We Only Part To Meet Again

I will leave my overcoat behind
No use to me anymore because I’ll find
Expansion, Freedom, Unlimited Love
When my Spirit is released to the up above

It might be easier for you to think of me
As gone on a journey across the sea
To a far away land as in times gone by
Before inventions enabled us to fly

Although we won’t be able to phone
You can still reach me when you’re alone
In Love and Peace, Uplifted in your heart
It will be as though we were never apart

Have an Uplifted Open mind and I’ll be there
The Energy of Love means we can share
Think of what to say to me and you will find
I can talk to you through thoughts in your mind

Remember me by the love we shared
And know for you I always deeply cared
Our love goes on through all Eternity
So together forever we will always be

About The Poem

I love to write uplifting sympathy poems as I have no doubt whatsoever that we continue on, so I want to share my beliefs with whoever is drawn to my words. None of us know when our last breath will be (in this life) and so I also want to leave words of love and spiritual wisdom for my family and friends when my time comes to go home. This quote from John Gay (1695 – 1732) fitted perfectly for my more personal words.

I write poems using quotes for my Spiritual Quotes To Live By website and sometimes after finishing a poem I know there is more for the quote and write another, which is why the title has a (1). I will share the other poem at a later date.
