All thru out my life,
I have never even given it a thought.
Not even in my darkest dreams,
That I would ever be alone.
But I have to thank the Lord,
Because if I would have known,
I might have feared the chance
Of finding my true Love.
18 years sounds like such a long time,
But it just wasn't long enough.
To see you smile,
To hear your voice,
Oh how I miss your touch.
Once again I spend your Birthday
wishing you were here.
Putting on a smile,
While I'm holding back the tears.
There is so much I want to thank you for,
But this poem would never end.
You were my whole world,
My Best Friend.
Tears Are Waiting In The Wings
by Brenda Maple
Dedicated to My daughter Lucy, who died of cancer April 2013.
I have to stand and watch your pain,
You struggle on and don't complain,
I cannot think of other things
While tears are waiting in the wings.
I pray for strength to live each day
As we must see you slip away,
We share your anguish at your fate;
Make memories before too late.
The daffodils look bright this year,
The time ticks by, we pause in fear,
We cannot see for moistened eyes,
Awaiting what before us lies.
There is a point to suffering,
It will a true redemption bring,
It teaches us a message clear,
To cherish those we hold most dear.
Crying For My Daughter
by Gregory Davis
I started Crying the day you passed away,
My heart hurts so bad,,, I even cried today,
Even Though I Loved you dearly,
I couldn't make you stay,
2 hearts stopped beating,the day I heard you went away,
Now I am left here to wonder, why God took you away,
no one should feel this pain, Not even for a day.
I even cry in the shower, hoping no one would hear,
But even while I sleep, I dream of you my dear.
If I could trade places with you sweet heart, I would,
I will always Love you and miss you,like any Daddy should.
On the loss of my beloved husband
by Elizabeth Postle
(Grief and Sympathy.com)
I lost my husband two years ago. We were lucky and had a very long and happy marriage. Although I miss him every day, I count my blessings and treasure my memories. I was so proud of him. This poem came to me in the middle of the night, and it just says what I feel. A light went out of my life,
Shadows were everywhere.
Daylight eventually came
The brightness was never the same.
Sleep on my loved one
Peace is yours.
Your life's work is done.
All who knew you can only say
Some stars shine so brightly
They are never dull.
Their light shines on all our lives
Just as yours had done.
