this poem touches me because Thursday August 2, 2007my uncle died in iraq by what the military is calling an "unidentified explosive devise" in Baghdad. so this is why this truly touches me!1

My husband found this poem online and shared it with me. It really touched me. I have not been able to get these words out of my head. When I heard this poem it was 2 days after my older brother, 23, was killed in a car accident. I saw that the author of the poem shared a similar tragedy that inspired this poem, and all I really want to say is thank you! You said what I could not put into words.

In My Mind

Somewhere in my dreams tonight
I'll see you standing there
You look at me with a smile
"Life isn't always fair"

You say you were chosen for his garden
His preciously hand picked bouquet
"God really needed me,
That's why I couldn't stay"

It's said to be that angels
Are sent from above
I've always had my angel
My brother - whose heart was filled with love

Wherever the ocean meets the sky
There will be memories of you and I
When I look up at that sky so blue
All I see are visions of you

"While there's a heart in me, you'll be a part of me."

I loved it, its simplicity, not simple, but absence of pretense. Still with deep meaning. It meant a lot to me, I have lost a lot of very good friends in very short time so I can identify some. But nothing like a brother, It would be unbearable for me to loose my only sister. That realationship if it is good , is like no other. Thank you
Mommas

Your poem REALLY got to me. I lost my boyfriend in Feb. of 2005 and it was really hard for me, and it still is. His birthday is coming up in 3 days and I've been thinking a lot about him and his family. This poem was just truly amazing. And to the author I'm very sorry for your loss as well. Throughout this whole experience I got taught to Be Strong! So I just want to thank you for writing this poem, it's very comforting. Much Love.
