Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. On Angels Wings You Were Taken Away
On Angels Wings you were taken away
but in my heart you will always stay.
I will hear your whisper in the tallest trees
feel your love in the gentle breeze.
And when I find I miss you the most
inside our beautiful memories
I will hold you close.
You are an angel watching over me
with the comfort and blessings you bring
you embrace my heart and hold it close
forever on Angels Wings.
2. In silent prayer and aching heart
I watched you day by day..
Although I loved you dearly
I could not make you stay.
The silent grief that’s in my heart
no human eye can trace..
For many a shattered, broken heart
lies beneath a smiling face.
3. Should you go first and I remain
one thing I’d have you do..
Walk slowly down that long, lone path
for soon I’ll follow you.
I’ll want to know each step you take
that I may walk the same..
For some day down that lonely road
you’ll hear me call your name.
4. A Silent Tear
Just close your eyes and you will see
All the memories that you have of me.
Just sit and relax and you will find
I’m really still there inside your mind.
Don’t cry for me now I’m gone,
For I am in the land of song.
There is no pain, there is no fear
So dry away that silent tear.
Don’t think of me in the dark and cold
For here I am, no longer old.
I’m in that place that’s filled with love
Known to you all, as “UP ABOVE”.
5. Face In A Crowd
I thought I saw you
In a crowd
He walked like you
His stance was proud
His hair the same
His profile too
I really thought
He could be you
Then I remembered
You are gone
My heart fell flat
As I walked on
I see your face
Where e’er I go
Guess I just thought
That you should know
Still hear your laught
And see your smile
Though you’ve been gone
For quite awhile
I miss you more
Than words can say
Wish that’d been you
I saw today
6. Time Will Ease the Hurt
The sadness of the present days
is locked and set in time..
And moving to the future
is a slow and painful climb.
But all the feelings that are now
so vivid and so real..
Can’t hold their fresh intensity
as time begins to heal.
No wound so deep will
ever go, entirely away..
Yet every hurt becomes
a little less each day.
Nothing can erase, the painful
imprints on your mind..
But there are softer memories
that time will let you find.
And Though your heart won’t let
the sadness simply slide away..
The echoes will diminish
even though the memories stay.
