being watched over

Do They Really Watch Over Us?


They say that when
someone you love dies,
they will watch over you.

But is that really true?
Sometimes I believe it,
but other times I don't.

I find it hard to believe in it
since I would like to
be able to know when
my loved ones are
watching over me.

That way I could talk to them,
tell them how much I miss them,
and how much they mean to me.

I love my sister,
and the family cats,
who have passed away,
and wish that I could show this to them.

Do they really watch over us?
When loved ones die,
is it really true that they
watch over us?

I really wish I knew
the true answer to this,
and not just some answer
from someone who is just
trying to make me feel better.

I want to know the answer!
But I know that getting it
is something that will
most likely not happen.

Do they really watch over us
after they die?
Is that really the truth?

If it really is,
I wish that I knew
when I was being watched over...

Just a poem I wrote when I was pondering over whether or not we are really watched over by our loved ones who have died.
