Such A Long Name
Jefferson Porterfield Haskins Breeden
You left this world suddenly but now
you are where names are no longer important.
You have become bigger than a name.
You have returned to your Source of Being.
Love surrounds you.
Pain is gone and self doubts no longer plague you.
You are healthy and whole and part of the eternal light.
Your daughter, Hailey, was born after you left this earthly home.
You have not seen her.
But wait! You may be able to see her.
I don’t know. I’ll know when I join you.
I love her with my whole heart. She is beautiful and precious.
She looks so much like you.
When I hold her my heart is joyful.
It also breaks because I can no longer hold you.
So sorry for this loss, on so many levels. Thank you for sharing.
How beautiful, Sandra! Your poem, with its pain and joy, captures so much love and tenderness and wisdom. I am grateful to read these words, grateful to Joan to have you share these lovely words as her guest poet this evening.
Deep peace, Margie
