We suffer and we grieve
when we lose someone whom we love
and it brings us comfort to believe
they’ve been called from above.
But often times I’ll wonder
in the things I do and see
if somehow they’re trying to let me know
that they are watching over me.
I believe more each day
that flukes occurring just by chance
don’t happen by coincidence
or by simple happenstance.
And I’ll find myself wondering
if each incident is a clue,
or if I should consider asking
the question, “Is that you?”
These occasions have begun
to somehow calm my sorrow and fear.
For though you’re gone, they may be your way,
of showing me that you are still near.
