Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. Cry Not For Me
Cry not for me
I have no pain in leaving
Do not visit my grave
For I no longer exist there.
I am in the air that you breathe
I am in the sun that warms you
I am in the rain that fills your springs
I am in the heaven that you dream of
We are forever
You and I.
2. Find your way
I shall always step with you.
Speak to me often
I shall always hear you.
Give me your love
I shall always feel you.
Know in your heart
I will be with you every day.
But, until we meet again
.. Be Happy!
3. Garden Of Longing
I know where the garden of longing is
I’ve been there many a time ..
To see your beautiful smiling face
And hold your hand in mine.
We walk the paths where flowers bloom
And watch the butterflies ..
We share some childhood memories
Of yesterday’s gone by.
Many tears I’ve cried since you went away
My life has changed so much ..
Without you here to share with me
Or feel your gentle touch.
I miss your smile, your laughter too
I miss those days gone by ..
I often sit and wonder
About all the reasons why.
I guess your blooms were so beautiful
All covered with glistening mist ..
That God sent the angels down that day
And checked you off his list.
4. Our Special Place In Heaven
There’s a special place in Heaven
that’s reserved for you and I ..
A special little place in our
home up in the sky.
If God calls me to Heaven
and I reach it before you do ..
I promise I’ll take care of it the
way you’d want me to.
I will keep it warm and tidy
the way you like a home to be ..
And I’ll brighten it with Heaven’s
flowers, angels’ songs and poetry.
5. Two Hearts
Two hearts we were as one on Earth
Two hearts that were entwined ..
My love for you was ever strong
Now you live inside my mind.
Your lovely life just slipped away
That life so full of zest! ..
Your twinkling eyes got weary
Your beating heart took rest.
I know you’ve gone to Heaven
From Earth you slipped away ..
But faith in you my dearest Lord
Keeps me strong each day.
Two hearts once beat together
Now one beats all alone ..
I know one day we’ll meet Dear Lord
The day you call me home.
6. I Wish
You cannot ease my aching heart
nor pacify my pain ..
Nor can you replace what I have lost
Or bring her back again.
I want you back by my side
to take you by the hand ..
And walk the golden beach
where our toes squish in the sand.
You listened when I needed to talk
you wiped away my tears ..
You shared my worries when they came
and you helped me through my fears.
I want you back to stand by me
to help me as I grow and strive ..
To take your hand and face the world
I wish you back alive.
