Signs From Our Loved Ones

I’ve heard it said that there are signs of our loved ones everywhere. I’ve heard that some of the signs can come by way of butterflies, dragonflies, cardinals, a cloud formation, a ray of light or feathers, just to name a few.

I’ve seen all of these things regularly throughout my journey and I want nothing more than to believe they are indeed signs from my loved ones in Heaven, but I must admit I have a hard time fully accepting this idea.

I was visiting Madison a couple weeks ago though. As always I was lying on the grass on top of her. This time I was playing a song from my phone and singing it for her when I caught an overwhelming scent of roses.

I searched all around the area for any sign of fresh flowers and there were none to be found anywhere I could see. So this experience that day just might have turned me into a believer of these signs. The scent was not there until I began singing this song to her and felt tears begin to slide down my cheeks.

Did she send me a sign that day?

I wonder if I’ll ever know.

Goodnight My Angel Lyrics by: Billy Joel

Goodnight my angel, time to close your eyes
And save these questions for another day
I think I know what you’ve been asking me
I think you know what I’ve been trying to say
I promised I would never leave you
Then you should always know
Wherever you may go, no matter where you are
I never will be far away
Goodnight my angel, now it’s time to sleep
And still so many things I want to say
Remember all the songs you sang for me
When we went sailing on an emerald bay
And like a boat out on the ocean
I’m rocking you to sleep
The water’s dark and deep, inside this ancient heart
You’ll always be a part of me. Goodnight my angel, now it’s time to dream
And dream how wonderful your life will be
Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby
Then in your heart there will always be a part of me
Someday we’ll all be gone
But lullabies go on and on
They never die
That’s how you and I will be
