Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest
It broke our hearts to see you go,
God only takes the best
They say that memories are golden,
Well may be that is true,
But we never wanted memories,
We only wanted you,
Your life was love and labour,
Your love for your family true,
You did your best for all of us,
We will always remember you.
We sat beside your bedside,
Our hearts were crushed and sore,
We did our duty to the end,
‘Til we could do no more.
In tears we watched you sinking,
We watched you fade away,
And though our hearts were breaking,
We knew you could not stay.
Our lips cannot speak how we loved you,
Our hearts cannot tell what to say,
But God only knows how we miss you,
In our home that is lonely today.
2. If we could visit heaven,
Even for a day,
Maybe for a moment,
the pain would go away.
I’d put my arms around you,
and whisper words so true,
that living life without you,
is the hardest thing to do.
No matter how we spend our days,
no matter what we do,
No morning dawns or evening falls,
When we don’t think of you.
3. In Loving Remembrance
Don’t cry because I am gone,
smile because I was here.
Fill your life
with love, and laughter,
It was my time to leave,
but it is your time to live.
Someday we will be together again,
but until then,
Know that I am in your heart,
and your happiness
will bring me peace.
4. What I would give,
for just one more time,
to say I love you,
one more hug,
one more kiss goodbye.
I thought there would be
that somehow you would
always be there
That you could never die.
I know you are in Heaven,
but I love and miss you, and
my heart deeply grieves.
I would give anything
to have you, if but for a
moment, once again
here with me.
5. You Never Gave Up On Me
At times of confusion you guide my way
You gently wiped my tears away;
All these years you loved me unconditionally;
You never gave up on me
When I stumble and fall,
You rushed immediately when I called;
Thank you for not giving up on me,
Your love has set me free.
When I am weak and hurting,
You held back nothing;
You were always there to pick me up,
You never gave up on me.
Thank you for your words of encouragement,
Your counsels will never be forgotten;
All those years that you have never gave up on me,
Will be etched in my heart for eternity.
