Here are some poems in loving memory of a Loved one in Heaven:
1. To lose someone so special
is really hard to bear
it hardly seems believable
that you’re no longer there
You left us far too early
before your time, it seems
and now you’ll never have the chance
to fulfil all those dreams
However hard it is though
we’ll take comfort in the thought
of all the memories we have
and the happiness you brought
You always lived life to the full
but ours won’t be the same
until the day when we can see
your smiling face again.
2. What would I give to clasp his hand,
His happy face to see,
To hear his voice, and see his smile
That meant so much to me.
The rolling stream of life rolls on.
But still the vacant chair
Recalls the love, the voice, the smile
Of the one who once sat there.
Nothing can ever take away
The love a heart holds dear.
Fond memories linger every day,
Remembrance keeps him near.
3. I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you…
And each time that you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too…
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand.
An angel came and called my name
and took me by the hand,
It seemed my place was ready
In Heaven far above,
and that I’d have to leave behind,
those things I dearly love.
4. I’ll be Seeing You
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day through:
In the small cafe,
The park across the way,
The children’s carousel,
The chestnut tree
The wishing well.
I’ll be seeing you
In every lovely summer’s day,
In everything that’s light.
I’ll always think of you that way.
I’ll find you in the morning sun,
And when the night is new,
I’ll be looking at the moon —
but I’ll be seeing you.
5. Faded Rememberance
Your silent eyes reach out to me,
calling me through the myst of time.
I see the vision of your face forever
etched upon my heart and mind.
I reach out my hand to you, but
you disappear into the air. Now
I have only a faint memory; a
trace of your smile and hair.
Your laugh eludes me as does your
voice. I know your eyes, are keen
and intense. But the picture it gives
is only a faded rememberance.
6. What does “letting go” mean?
This phrase is often misunderstood.
Does it mean forgetting,
letting go of our memories?
Not at all.
Does it mean letting go of a relationship
with our deceased loved ones?
Our relationship is changed, not ended.
“Letting go” refers to the time in our healing journey
when we are ready to gently open our tightly closed fists.
In doing so we let go of our pain.
We do not need it anymore.
