May Angels Lead You In

I don’t really have a lot to say tonight, it seems to have been a long hard day, waking in the middle of the night again didn’t help, even after an early night, at half past one I was running with a poem in my head, I put it on here, then still not able to switch off added to a poem I started with a few weeks ago, then I had just two verses, I added a few more then finally finished it this morning.

My Nanna’s funeral went really well, I thought I was doing okay to hold it all together, but then whilst waiting at my Aunt’s house, it hit me when the coffin arrived, from that point I was fighting the tears all the way, they finally flowed at the Church and then at the cemetery.

I’m so tired now, when I got home I slept for over two hours, only to wake feeling so drained and numb, it was hard to even walk or move about.  That’s unsteadyness lifted now, but I still feel so worn and tired.

My Nanna was a woman of strong faith, it was said in the funeral service that she had commented that she knew where she was going.  Last night my mind was full of this song, in light of my Nanna’s faith, I’m sure the angels led her in.

And if you were with me tonight
I’d sing to you just one more time
A song for a heart so big
God wouldn’t let it live
May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friends
On sleepless roads
The sleepless go
May angels lead you in
May angels lead you in
(Hear You Me by Jimmy Eat World)

      Hi Britt
      It really is a great song, I hear heard it hundreds of times, but never fully appreciated it, gotta love Jimmy Eat World.
      I’ll keep holding on, thank you so much.

    I’m sorry to hear you lost your Nanna. Grief will steal all your energy. Praying you will be comforted, when you lie down that you will sleep in peace.

      Hi Sue
      Tears are one thing I shed a lot of over the last year, I’ve come to be comfortable with them now, so many have seen my tears I’m no longer fear them, I just let them flow when they are near.

    Beautiful song! Sorry for your loss, though. I lost my Nana around this time last year, first ever funeral, hit me unexpectedly like a tonne of bricks when I had to lay the rose on her coffin. This has made me think of my Nana’s memory, and made me happy, so thank you.

      Thank you, within two months I have been to my first two funerals, both my Nan’s, this song summed up everything I wanted to say to them. I glad it brought you happy memories.
