Notes and Quotes – Stop All the Clocks

Notes & Quotes
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Stop All the Clocks
Auden Poem
June 2nd, 2013

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message ‘He is Dead’.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

My Personal Thoughts ~

This truly touched my heart at the end of a rather long and boring movie. 

It sums up the feeling of utter loss perfectly. It is how I have felt during this season of healing, recovery, and, yes, Spiritual Detoxing. 

I cannot say if I am finished with this phase of my journey or not. But I am truly feeling every part of it and will continue to do so until ALL is felt and ALL is experienced. 

It is not a joyous place. But it is a quiet place. A place of silence and peace. A place of solitude and stillness. 

So that makes it a good place. A good place. 

I’m not afraid. I am not fearful. 

I feel safe. I feel protected. I feel sheltered. I feel watched over and cared for. 

So that makes this a good place. A good place. 

I don’t understand. I can’t see very far ahead. But I don’t need or want to. 

Grace shines its light with each step I take. 

There is hope. My mind is still and quiet. My heart is at rest. 

So that makes this a good place. A good place. 

I love You, Daddy. Oh how I love You!

Always and forever – Daddy’s girl!  My heart belongs to You!
