Premonition of A Mother's Death
by Rain Dove
Age Group: Adult
Premonition of A Mother's Death
Soundly sleeping on a winter's night
I woke to hear you say
As my flesh ran chilled with fright
You said ;
"Its time to go away."
To imagine life without you here
And not to my surprise
Left me feeling sad and helpless
And overcome with fear.
A winding road was just ahead
Swinging left and right ,
Off the bridge you fled so fast,
Into an abyss of lights.
With reaching hands I grasped for you
But the shining stars did blind.
Isn't it odd how our Spirits know
When we will be left behind ?.
Even though your abode no more
Is in this Earthly life
I see and hear you in my dreams
Speaking softly and so wise.
Even still I'm missing you
And life is not the same.
I often hear your words to me
From beyond the deepest grave.
"Do not grieve for me ,
Do not make a sound !
I am in the heavens today
With shining stars abound !
Do not cry , my child
I loved you then and now !
I never left you anyway ,
For that is not allowed !
Do not doubt what I say is true
And never ask why in fear
I haven't gone anywhere
Just know I'm always near."

Author's Notes: I had a premonition of my mother's death. We did not even know she was sick (nor did she) .
On the night of the premonition , her spirit came and told my spirit goodbye .. and ... two weeks before she was diagnosed with lung cancer.
She lived 6 months after being diagnosed.
She died on June 26th , 2004.
This is an account of that premonition ... and since that time .... her correspondence with me from beyond the grave.
This poem is dedicated to her , of course.
I love you mother. And I miss you.
