Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. Just close your eyes and you will see
The memories, that you have of me
Just sit, relax and you will find
I’m really still there, in your mind
Don’t cry for me, now I’m gone
For I am in, the land of song
Gone is the pain, there is no fear
So dry away that silent tear
Don’t think of me in 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”
2. Your gentle face and patient smile,
With sadness we recall,
You had a kindly word for each,
And died beloved by all.
The voice is mute and stilled the heart,
That loved us well and true.
Ah, bitter was the trial,
To part from one as good as you.
You are not forgotten loved one,
Nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last,
you will be here with me.
We miss you now,
Our hearts are sore,
As time goes by
We’ll miss you more.
Your loving smile,
Your gentle face,
No one can fill,
Your vacant place.
3. A Thousand Memories
Old Songs we loved tell a Story
The passing of time can never Erase.
Reminding me of our life Together
When ever I hear them Play.
Living without you hasn’t been Easy
Knowing things can never Change.
Its only when I hear our Song
That brings it all back Again.
And then when my mind begins to Wander
Still your presence never Leaves.
All it takes is just one Song
To bring back a Thousand Memories.
4. Remember the joy,
the laughter, the smiles.
I’ve only gone
to rest a while.
Although my leaving
causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt
and given me relief.
So dry your eyes
and remember me,
not as I am
but as I used to be.
Because, I will
remember you all
and look on with a smile.
Understand in your hearts,
I’ve only gone to rest a while.
As long as I have
the love of you,
I can live my life
in the hearts
of all of you.
5. 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…
