Poems for the loss of a Spouse
Two hearts we were as one on Earth,
Two hearts that were entwined,
My love for you was ever strong,
Now you live inside my mind.
Your lovely life just slipped away,
That life so full of zest!
Your twinkling eyes got weary,
Your beating heart took rest.
I know you’ve gone to Heaven,
From Earth you slipped away,
But faith in you my dearest Lord
Keeps me strong each day.
Two hearts once beat together,
Now one beats all alone.
I know one day we’ll meet Dear Lord,
The day you call me home.

Our Special Place In Heaven
There’s a special place in Heaven
that’s reserved for you and I,
A special little place in our
home up in the sky.
If God calls me to Heaven
and I reach it before you do,
I promise I’ll take care of it the
way you’d want me to.
I will keep it warm and tidy –
the way you like a home to be,
And I’ll brighten it with Heaven’s
flowers, angels’ songs and poetry.

Garden Of Longing
I know where the garden of longing is
I’ve been there many a time
To see your beautiful smiling face
And hold your hand in mine
We walk the paths where flowers bloom
And watch the butterflies
We share some childhood memories
Of yesterday’s gone by
Many tears I’ve cried since you went away
My life has changed so much
Without you here to share with me
Or feel your gentle touch
I miss your smile, your laughter too
I miss those days gone by
I often sit and wonder
About all the reasons why
I guess your blooms were so beautiful
All covered with glistening mist
That God sent the angels down that day
And checked you off his list.
God Saw You Getting Tired
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you and whispered “Come With Me.”
With tearful eyes I watched you, slowly fade away,
Although I loved you dearly, I would not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
God broke my heart to prove to me,
He only takes the best.
Come With Me
The Lord saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So He put his arms aroud you
And whispered “Come with me.”
With tearful eyes I watched you suffer
And saw you fade away.
Although I loved you dearly,
I could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Your beautiful smile at rest.
God broke my heart to prove,
He always takes the best.
It’s lonesome here without you,
I miss you so each day.
My life just isn’t the same
Ever since you went away.
When days are sad and lonely
And everything goes wrong,
I hear you gently whisper,
“Cheer up and carry on.”
Each time I see your picture,
You seem to smile and say,
“Don’t cry, I’m in God’s keeping,
We’ll meet again someday.”
With You In Spirit
Your heart may be heavy and aching,
Now that I’m no longer here.
But, though you may shed many tears,
Let memories banish your fear.
My arms are no longer around you.
My lips cannot speak of my love.
But, I’m with you in spirit each day,
As I look down from Heaven above.
The house may be silent without me.
It doesn’t mean I can’t be there.
And, every night that you sleep,
Our love, in your dreams, we still share.
As you continue, alone on earth,
I’ll be with you each step of the way.
I can still be the strength that you need,
To carry you through each new day.
Although, I know you can’t see me,
Our spirits are joined as before.
So, whenever you feel uplifted,
Know it’s me just loving you more.
In Heaven, we’re given a gift
To still tend to the ones left behind.
So, smile when you think of me.
I remain in your heart and your mind.
