For the Bereft


Poem Commentary

To comfort those during loss. This came to me from a dream on the other side, I had to write it!

For the Bereft


Dearest ones

Do not grieve for me

Come together for restoration, re-connection and reflection

My power and loving essence surrounds you


Remember me in death, as in life

I am at peace and at one with serenity

Holding you ever close to my bosom

My heart is filled with joy and gratefulness having known you


Live each moment expressing your individuality and oneness

Celebrate your existence in the present

Do not wait to thank others

Appreciate those who are in your midst


Live on, Live Well until your time for transcendence is come

One day you will also be reunited with all of the Universe

Your energy will never die but encompass everything that is

Love with the fullness of your heart until then…..


-M. Jacobs

A strong compassionate write... some good friends of mine celebrated their daughter's birthday yesterday - she would have been 22... they lost her in a car accident about six months ago and are still missing her greatly - though as you have said in your wonderful peaceful way --- their energy lives ON!!! 10



Thanks Soulwriter, you know for some who have lost dear ones, it may be the only solace to hang onto , just knowing that the energy is not cancelled out, it still lingers on... this drives the tears away and forces a gentle smile over the sadness... I understand it all too well, unfortunately. I believe that some writes come to us to console us and if we share it, it can help others cope with loss, as well. Ty

I recently submitted one I wrote from this side, when my wife died in 08. I like your perspective.



Stryx, Thanks for reaching out. Hopefully "For The Bereft" gave you some quality of solace, though i know that nothing can remove the sadness you must feel in losing your dear partner. I received this poem as a message during a strange and lonely dream. I have found that writing and reading other poets helps me cope with many things. Thanks for your supportive and kind words. Bless You! Be Well.

A well written piece of art. Interesting perspective, a voice from one who has passed on encouraging others to live life and be happy. 10 from me.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
