You spoke to me inside a song
and brought my soul to peace.
The words I knew, whispered by you,
provided sweet release.

I felt your message in my heart,
down deep, where feelings dwell.
The love flowed “all around me,” and
it made my spirit swell.

Your dad first gave this song to me,
and I have held it dear,
a meaningful reminder that
his love is always near.

Today when it began to play,
the one I heard was you,
letting me know that, near or far,
your love was with me, too.

You sang, “Together we have come
so far, through rain and sun.”
We have. I glanced up wistfully
and prayed we were not done.

The music warmed––gave life––as
tender lyrics took your tone:
“You never are without my love.
You never are alone.”

The song that inspired my poem, “Love from Heaven” follows. Upon hearing it recently, I felt as if my son were speaking to me from the other side. “All Around Me” was always a favorite of mine, but needless to say, it is now even more special. (By the way, if this poem speaks to your heart, you might also like another one by me: “Love Is.”)

All Around You
by Darden Smith

You tell me, sometimes you wake up
and you don’t, you don’t believe.
Let’s go climb the mountain
if that’s what it takes you to see
how far together we have come,
through days of rain and days of sun.

It’s all around you
above and below you,
everywhere you go.
It’s all around you now.
Never ever doubt it,
’cause you never are
without my love.

If you need to see me cry,
I’ll fill the ocean blue.
And if you need, really need
to see me bleed, I’ll open up for you.
But if you only need reminding,
let my smile just ease your mind, ’cause

It’s all around you
above and below you,
everywhere you go.
It’s all around you.
Never ever doubt it,
’cause you never are
without my love.

Trouble follows trouble,
if trouble’s all you choose to see.
But faith just brings you more faith.
We can make all the love we need, ’cause

It’s all around you
above and below you,
everywhere you go.
It’s all around you now.
Never ever doubt it,
’cause you never are
without my love.
