Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. God called your name so softly,
that only you could hear,
and no one heard the footsteps
of angels drawing near.
It broke our hearts to lose you
but you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You’re always close beside us,
in everything we do,
you were our greatest treasure,
God’s gift to us was you.
We always remember that way you looked,
the way you talked and smiled,
the little things you said and did
to make our lives worthwhile.
Each time we look at your picture,
you seem to smile and say,
don’t be sad but courage take
and love each other for my sake.
2. Just One day
If I could come back for just one day
I know exactly what I would say
To my family and friends and those who I loved
As a message from God who speaks from above.
I would say it’s okay to be sad for a awhile
But what I really want most is to see your smile,
And for you to go on and live once again-
Allowing the Lord to comfort your pain.
I know that you loved me with all of your heart
And that none of you wanted for me to depart.
I don’t quite understand it myself
But I know you’ll get by with a little help.
Yes, I would say to be sad for a day
And to do what you need to do.
And then lift up your eyes
to the wonder of the sky
And know that I loved you too.
3. Our Sadness, Their Joy
The passing of a loved one,
A time indeed that’s sad.
I feel for you, for your loss,
The news about your loved one.
A saddened heart, a shedded tear,
No voice heard on a call.
The memories we hold so dear,
Will comfort our torn soul.
For here on Earth we feel the pain,
The grief we must go through.
Their wondrous joy of rebirth,
Unaware we have no clue.
They celebrate the glorious grace,
That they are now bestowed.
Reunion with passed love and friends,
Such elation they behold.
As we ride the waves of life,
Through trough and foamy crest.
Our balance steadied by His hand,
Forgetting we are blessed.
4. You are the sunshine in my day
My shining star in the velvet sky
You are the minutes in my hour
The hours in my life
You are the wings upon which I fly
The ground upon which I tread
You are the gentle breeze
That caresses my warm skin
You are the vast ocean
Calming to my soul
You are the warm fine sand
That tickles my toes
You are the flame that lights my fire
The light within my eyes
You are the love that has taken hold
Of my heart forever
