Poems For A Lost Loved One
You never said I'm leaving You never said goodbye. You were gone before I knew it, And only God knew why. A million times I needed you, A million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place, That no one could ever fill. It broke my heart to lose you, But you didn't go alone For part of me went with you, The day God took you home.
A sleep I shall have A rest I shall have Yet death will be but a pause For the peace of my years In the long green grass Will be yours and yours and yours. A limb has fallen from the family tree. Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. The good life I lived while I was strong. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Poems of Comfort and Sympathy for Lost Loved Ones
A death in the family leaves a void that cannot be filled. No one can ever take the place of this individual in the world. We should not try to comfort the family by saying that "it was his time anyway", or, "he was suffering". These may be words of comfort later. However, there must be time to mourn the fact that things will never be the same.
