A Rainbow message

A few days ago while I was driving I noticed the license plate on the car in front of me because it was a rainbow!  The above license plate is a sample of the one I saw.  I have never seen a rainbow license plate before.  I live in Virginia.  This was a Hawaii state license plate.  I feel like I have received many messages involving rainbows over the last few years.  Rainbows have a lot of special spiritual meanings, the primary one being promise.  Here is an earlier post with my poem, "Rainbow's Promise," and some other rainbow related messages.

I Am Not A Stranger There Anymore

A dear friend of mine, Vivian West, wrote this poem.  The title of this poem came to Vivian during a discussion we were having.  I had just said that what I wanted most in this world since my son died was to be connected with the "other side."  Vivian said that a part of me is on the other side, that a part of me followed Graham to Heaven, that I am not a stranger there.  As soon as Vivian said these words, she felt they were a message for me.  A few days later she wrote this poem.  She says that she takes no ownership of this poem.  She knows that my son was the one who gave her the words for me.  Vivian writes poetry too, but this poem is not written in her style.  This poem is in my style of writing.  I believe this was a beautiful way that Graham used to validate the discussion Vivian and I were having.  This is so amazing and comforting to me. There is no greater power than love.

When you left this life for the other side,
There was so much in me that also died,
My heart followed you to Heaven’s door,
I am not a stranger there anymore.

I look for you in every evening sky,
Wondering how it looks to you from on high,
Dance with me among the stars galore,
I am not a stranger there anymore.

Staying connected to you with the passing of time,
My soul understands life’s rhythm and rhyme,
Bonded by love to the child I bore,
I am not a stranger there anymore.

When the journey is over and the time is ours,
And we meet together in a meadow of flowers,
Surrounded by glory never seen before,
I will not be a stranger there anymore.

Thank you, Graham.

Spirit Essence

A few weeks ago we had this lovely water garden constructed in a very special area of our backyard.  Graham was the one who originally made this area into a garden for us, laying down weed cloth and gravel and planting some of the bushes and flowers - this earlier post shows him at work - http://amotherstears.blogspot.com/2010/05/with-us-in-spirit.html.  Four months after doing this he died in a tragic accident.  This area then became his memorial garden.

When the water garden was finished, we were taking pictures of it and this one had a glowing white and orange form for which we have no "normal" explanation.  There was nothing reflective in that area, no light source there, and the sky was overcast so it couldn't be lens flare.  I believe that it is pure energy, my son's spirit essence.  Graham shows us in many different ways that death does not end our relationship with loved ones.  Our loved ones in spirit remain with us always, because love and spirit never die.

Eternal Bonds

My soul screamed when I learned you were dead,
My body felt like it had been bled,
Life as I knew it no longer applied,
Everything changed the day you died.

What is my direction, where do I go?
There is so much that I don’t know,
I long to fly, to swoop and to soar,
Beyond this world up to heaven’s door.

I am listening, and working to see,
What is within divine possibility,
Death cannot sever our eternal bond,
Love is forever and will keep me going on.
