Spiritual Poem about Death

Out Of Body Experience Poem

Once I was very ill, and a nurse told me afterwards that they nearly lost me. At the time, I remember an out of body experience when I could see people working on my body. I saw soft white clouds with a strong beam of light shining through. I longed to follow the light through the clouds as I had a really strong feeling that something truly wonderful awaited me.

A Touch Of Heaven

Once I glimpsed another world,
gilded streams of light unfurled,
incandescent trails of wonder
blew my present world asunder.

A tug of human hearts and hands
brought me back to known lands,
perpetual memories in my mind,
another world so nearly mine.

What a moving poem, so vivid and real. I've never read a poem on this theme before.

Thank you so much for your lovely comment - it means a great deal to me.

I was going through the stories when I came to know about your husband. I am so sorry for your loss. I can't really imagine your grief at this time. May the Almighty give you strength to bear the irreparable loss.

Bless you - so kind and caring to send such a lovely message.

Oh Ann, I am so sorry for your loss. I can't begin to imagine what you're going through. I hope that, in time, you may be able to find some measure of solace in writing your wonderful poetry.

I loved this. Succinct and yet eloquent, this was such a pleasure to read.

Cynthia, I couldn't have asked for a better compliment from a fellow poet I really respect. I think all of your poetry is superb. Especially good to receive a boost to my moral as my husband has recently died.

Ann, You have a talent that I don't have in my poetry. You can express your message in very few words but still leave a lasting, beautiful image in the reader's mind. This is a lovely poem in its descriptions, choice of words, and sweet message. Real poetry indeed.

Bless you, Patricia, very kind comments, but I definitely feel you are the real poet. Very best wishes, Ann
