It’s Ok To Go – adapted


This poem was written by Lori Daoust. She wrote this poem for her father when he was dying. I was deeply touched by her words.

 

And, the words echo through my brain. “It’s ok to go…”

 

You were sick and so tired and we all knew,
that God would soon come to take you.
You fought so hard, so very long,
but through the pain, you stayed strong.

We all knew there would come a day,
when God would come to carry you away.
It doesn’t make it easier to say goodbye,
and I try so hard not to cry.

I couldn’t help but feel defeated,
or maybe even cheated.
But how very selfish would I be,
to hope and pray you could stay with me.

So as you lay there,
I whispered “It’s ok to go”
Say “Hi” to loved ones waiting on the other side.
I know some day; you’ll be there when I take that ride.

I am a sixty something wife,mother, sister, grandmother and friend. I started blogging as a coping mechanism during my beautiful daughter's final journey. Vic was desperately ill for 10 years after a botched back operation. Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child. https://tersiaburger.wordpress.com
