Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. Please don’t tell me not to cry
Please don’t say there was a reason why.
You don’t know what I am feeling,
Or how much I hurt.
The wet spots are from tears on the collar of this shirt.
You think I should go on with life,
Forget about it and be strong.
But deep down I am sad, and I don’t want to go along.
I don’t expect you to understand why,
For no apparent reason I break down and start to cry.
My life has changed forever, you see
And that is why I am not acting like the same old me.
So please don’t try to act like nothing happened,
Because it’s changed my life forever.
I will never be the same again,
Not today, not tomorrow, but never.
The best thing you can do for me is just be there,
Just like always, my friend.
My broken heart is hurting bad,
And it will never mend…
2. Waiting in the Light
When you wake up tomorrow
And grief takes your breath away
Know that I watch over you
And walk with you each day
Though unseen, I stay close by
We’re never far apart
The love we shared gives testament
To all that’s in your heart
I see the way you struggle now
To hold your head up high
I’m proud of you because I know
How very hard you try
I wish that I could hold you close
And ease the pain you feel
I want so much to talk to you
And promise that you’ll heal
One day you will see me again
Once more within your sight
I’ll be right here to walk you in
I’m waiting in the light
3. She’s in the sun,
the wind, the rain,
she’s in the air you
breathe with every
breath you take.
She sings a song
of hope and cheer,
there’s no more pain,
no more fear.
You’ll see her in
the clouds above,
hear her whisper
words of love.
You’ll be together
before long, until then
listen for her song.
4. Forever In Your Heart
Feel no guilt in laughter
He knows how much you care
Feel no sorrow in a smile
That he’s not here to share
You cannot grieve forever
He would not want you to
He’d hope that you would carry on
The way you always do
So talk about the good times
And the ways you showed you cared
The days you spent together
All the happiness you shared
Let memories surround you
A word someone might say
Will suddenly recapture
A time, an hour, a day
That brings him back as clearly
As though he were still here
And fills you with the feelings
That say he’s always near
For if you keep those moments
You will never be apart
And they will live forever
Safely locked within your heart
