Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. I Heard Your Voice In The Wind Today
I heard your voice in the wind today
and I turned to see your face ..
The warmth of the wind caressed me
as I stood silently in place.
I felt your touch in the sun today
as its warmth filled the sky ..
I closed my eyes for your embrace
and my spirit soared high.
I saw your eyes in the window pane
as I watched the falling rain ..
It seemed as each raindrop fell
it quietly said your name.
I held you close in my heart today
it made me feel complete ..
You may have died .. but you are not gone
you will always be a part of me.
As long as the sun shines
the wind blows
the rain falls ..
You will live on inside of me forever
for that is all, my heart knows.
2. To Those I Love And Those Who Loved Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn’t tie yourselves to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now it’s time I traveled on alone.
So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It’s only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories that lie within your heart.
I won’t be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me call and I will come.
Though you can’t see me or touch me, I’ll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear.
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And when you must come this way alone
I’ll greet you with a smile and “Welcome Home.”
3. Say Not, They Die, Those Splendid Souls
Say not, they die, those splendid souls
Whose life is winged with purpose fine ,,
Who leave us, pointed to the goals
Who learn to conquer and resign.
Such cannot die; they vanquish time
And fill the world with glowing light ,
Making the human life sublime
With memories of their secret might.
They cannot die whose lives are part
Of the great life that is to be ,,
Whose hearts beat with the world’s great heart
And throb with its high intensity.
Those souls are great, who, dying, gave
A gift of greater life to man ,,
Death stands abashed before the brave
They own a life death cannot ban.
4. Now that I am gone,
remember me with smiles and laughter.
And if you need to cry,
cry with your brother
who walks in grief beside you.
And when you need me,
put your arms around anyone
and give to them what you need to give to me.
There are so many who need so much.
I want to leave you something–
much better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I’ve known
or helped in some special way.
Let me live in your heart
as well as in your mind.
You can love me most
by letting your love reach out to our loved ones,
by embracing them and living in their love.
Love does not die,people do.
So,when all that’s left of me is love,
give me away as best as you can.
