Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. Everything Is Different Now
When we lose a loved one
Our world just falls apart
We think that we can’t carry on
With this broken heart
Everything is different now
You’re upset and you’re shattered
Your world it seems, is now devoid
Of everything that mattered
There’s got to be a reason
And we have to understand
God made us and at his will
He’ll reach down for our hand
There might not be a warning
We won’t know where or when
The only thing were certain of
Is well meet them once again.
2. Many we love have passed away too
We remember them often in a thousand
different ways… In the morning… In the
night… When we look at the stars… A date…
A song… A place… A smell…
In memory of all those
who have left us too soon…
“Share” if you miss somebody who is
watching down on you from heaven…
3. For a dear loved one
You filled the world with special joy
And happiness untold,
You always had a sunny way
And a lovely heart of gold.
You made life so much brighter
Just by being thoughtful, too,
And saying kind and helpful things
Was typical of you.
That’s why it’s hard to face the world
And know you won’t be there,
Lighting up life so warmly with
your smile beyond compare.
The memories you’ve left behind
Grow sweeter day by day
But you are missed dear Loved One,
More than any words can say.
4. Missing You
You were an Angel sent from Heaven
A gift for us to borrow
To have you brought so much joy
Losing you such sorrow.
There are treasures to behold
In every lovely memory
In remembering all the joy
That you’d bring so easily.
Now in the arms of angels
Who will always safely keep
The beloved You we lost
Who, now, so softly sleeps.
Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the same
easy way you always have.
Laugh as we always laughed at
the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it always was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of your minds
because I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well. Nothing is past.
Nothing has been lost.
One brief moment and all will be
as it was before…
only better… Infinitely happier.
We will be one
