Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. Time Machine
I came across a picture
Of you and I today
The tears just started falling
But I couldn’t turn away
I closed my eyes and I was there…
That night so long ago
I saw your eyes still shining bright
Alive and so aglow
I’d swear I heard your laughter
As I gazed upon your face
That golden and contageous sound
That nothing can replace
It brought back such sweet memories
Of how things used to be
Each picture’s now a time machine
That brings you close to me
2. A Note From Heaven
If I could write from Heaven,
this is what I’d say,
Please don’t miss me too much,
I’m with you throughout your day.
You may not see or hear me,
but if you’re quiet and still,
You may just feel my presence;
because, in Heaven, there is free will.
Don’t worry for the day,
it will come and go as planned,
Enjoy each moment you are given,
keep worry from your hand.
Keep sorrow to a minimum;
For if Heaven you could see,
You’d know I’m safe and happy,
I did not cease to be.
Moments in time are brief,
until we’ll be together again,
as Eternity lasts forever,
our lives, they have no end.
3. When I Must Leave You
When I must leave you for a little while,
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow to you
Through the years,
But start out bravely with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name
Live on and do all things the same.
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways.
Reach out your hand in comfort and cheer,
And I in turn will comfort you
And hold you near.
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
4. Morning Rain
Thunder sounds, like a beating heart,
I hear your whispers in the wind,
As the rain falls like never ending tears,
Painfully cold, missing love,
Love has left me standing alone,
Love will not find her way back home,
Through the cold rain,
I have always been thinking,
How can two Souls in love be separated by a flood,
Caused by a rain of tears?
We once said, we would never say goodbye,
Hoping, when the skies clear,
You will return home from the East,
With the next sunrise.
5. 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.
