Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. Without You
It’s different here without you
It’s as if there is no sun ..
Darkness now surrounds me
My world seems so undone.
You were my life, my everything
but now, sweetheart you’ve gone ..
Somehow I must find faith in God
and let my life go on.
They say time mends a broken heart
If true, time is my friend ..
I’ll count the days until the time
you’re in my arms again.
2. Silent Tears
Why must I grieve silently
when my heart is screams? ..
The emptiness consumes me
how I wish it were a dream.
There is silence all around me
no one knows what to say ..
The agony I’m feeling
Since you went away.
Each day the sun rises
And sets just like before ..
But this world of mine has halted
it turns not anymore.
For a part of me is missing
my heart is bruised and shattered ..
No one can cure this heartache
or bring back to me, what mattered.
Silently I grieve for you
time doesn’t heal this pain ..
In my heart I’ll hold you close
Until we meet again.
3. Now Gone
I don’t always find living my life so easy
With our time of being together now gone ..
Although it is so hard with you not here
I do know, that my life must continue on.
I miss all of the things we always shared
and so many things we had not yet done ..
Everything that was special with only you
which cannot be replaced; not by anyone.
I know I have to continue on with my life
until time comes for me to again join you ..
If I were able to hear you speaking to me
I’m sure, you’d be saying these words too.
Although my sad heart still aches for you
and my life isn’t the same as it was before ..
Life is far too precious not to be fully lived
and I’m blessed, to still have time for more.
Memories of you will forever be my strength
and they will live, with you inside of my heart ..
I will remember everything you mean to me
instead of living the sadness of being apart.
So I will always carry your love in my heart
living my life the best way that I know how ..
Remembering this is what you’d want of me
and I must therefore start to live again, now.
4. Last Kiss
Her laugh, her love
her smile, her kiss ..
All that she is
forever I’ll miss.
I’ve one last chance
to say good-bye ..
then she’ll go to heaven
up high in the sky.
She’ll leave this earth
where her body remains ..
She’ll ascend to the heavens
liberated from pain.
I just can’t understand
why she has to die ..
And all of this happened
in the blink of an eye.
I don’t know if I can
but I have no choice ..
gone is her smile,
her laugh, and her voice.
My shattered heart
with my one final kiss ..
Why does her life
have to end like this.
With the flick of a switch
her final breath ..
My love, my life
my kiss of death.
