Here are some poems in loving memory of a loved one in Heaven:
1. Heaven Need You
So many things of You I miss-
You gentle hug and tender kiss.
I still can feel your warm embrace.
And picture yet you loving face
your tasks are never done.
And Heaven must have needed one.
For angels came and took you hand
And led you to God’s promised land.
your surely kept quite busy there
While brushing little angel’s hair.
And making sure they’re dressed just right.
Not staying out too late at night.
Although there’s sadness. This I know-
your waiting there. You face aglow
I close my eyes and I can see-
your arms still open wide for me.
2. Gone Too Soon
This was a life that hardly begun
no time to find your place in the sun
no time to do all you could have done
but we loved you enough for a lifetime
No time to enjoy the world and its wealth
No time to take life down off the shelf
no time to sing the song of yourself
though you had enough love for a lifetime
Those who live long endure sadness and tears
but you’ll never suffer the sorrowing years
no betrayal, no anger
no hatred, no fears
Just love, only love in your lifetime.
3. Heaven’s Gate
I guess it must
Have been your fate
To race ahead
Through Heaven’s gate
Although your work here
now is done
Your life in heaven
Has just begun
One day I’ll cross
Through that gate too
My joy complete…
Again with you
4. I do not need a special day
to bring you to mind.
The days I do not think of you
are very hard to find.
Each morning when I awake
I know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache
as I try to carry on.
My heart still aches with sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.
My thoughts are always with you,
your place no one can fill.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
5. Sit With Me
Come and sit with me awhile
you know I’d love to have you near
I have been so lonely ever since
you departed from here.
I know you went to heaven
but I hope you’ll visit me every day
sending signs to comfort me
you always knew just what to say.
So, when I am alone
I’ll talk openly and reveal
all that’s going on inside of me
so you’ll know just how I feel.
6. Angel Friend Of Mine
Like the freshness of a summer breeze
Scent of roses in the air
I do not see transparent wings
Yet I know my angel is there.
She doesn’t fly or fade away
As sometimes angels do
There is no skepticism at all
The angel I speak of is you.
A friend so kind and very dear
Someone I dearly love
Sent for me to cherish
From Heaven up above.
Please know you are so special
Our friendship means so much to me
Today, tomorrow and always
Close friends we’ll always be.
