Poems

An Angel Never Dies
Don't let them say, I wasn't born
That something stopped my heart
I felt each tender squeeze you gave
I've loved you from the start.

Although my body you can't hold,
It doesn't mean I'm gone.
This world was worthy, not, of me
God chose that I move on.

I know the pain that drowns your soul,
What you are forced to face.
You have my word, I'll fill your arms
Someday we will embrace.

You'll hear that it was "meant to be,
God doesn't make mistakes"
But that won't soften your worst blow..
Or make your heart not ache.

I'm watching over all you do,
another child you'll bear.
Believe me when I say to you,
That I am always there.

There will come a time, I promise you
When you will hold my hand
Stroke my face and kiss my lips
And then you'll understand.

Although, I've never breathed your air,
Or gazed into your eyes..
That doesn't mean I never "was"
An Angel Never Dies........

My Mom is a Survivor
My Mom is a survivor, or so I've heard it said. But I can hear her crying at night when all others are in bed.
I watch her lay awake at night and go to hold her hand. She doesn't know I'm with her to help her understand.
But like the sands on the beach that never wash away ...I watch over my surviving Mom who thinks of me each day.
She wears a smile for others ...a smile of disguise! But through Heaven's door I see tears flowing from her eyes.
My Mom tries to cope with death; To keep my memory alive.
But anyone who knows her knows it is her way to survive, as I watch over my surviving Mom through Heaven's open door ...
I try to tell her that angels protect me forevermore! I know that doesn't help her, or ease the burden she bears.

So, if you get a chance, go visit her. Show her that you care. for no matter what she says ...no matter what she feels.
My surviving Mom has a broken heart that time won't ever heal.

Until We Meet Again
I have not turned my back on you 
So there is no need to cry. 
I'm watching you from heaven 
Just beyond the morning sky. 

I've seen you almost fall apart 
When you could barely stand. 
I asked an angel to comfort you
And watched her take your hand. 

She told me you are in more pain 
Than I could ever be. 
She wiped her eyes and swallowed hard 
Then gave your hand to me. 
Although you may not feel my touch 
Or see me by your side. 
I've whispered that I love you 
While I wiped each tear you cried. 

So please try not to ache for me 
We'll meet again one day. 
Beyond the dark and stormy sky 
A rainbow lights the way.

"I Am Still With You"

If it seems that I am

far away on this empty and solemn day,

just open your heart and know

It is true that I am still right here with you

If during the day things are going wrong,

please don't feel sad and alone.

Just open your heart and know

it's true, that I am still right here with you.

When nighttime falls and the day is done.

If you are feeling alone and sleep won't come,

Just open your heart and know it's true,

that I am still right here with you.

Close your eyes and feel the warm embrace.

Sleep peacefully in the wings of grace.

If sadness finds you in the morning light,

if you feel alone, don't give up trying!

Hold this feather close and know its true,

that I am always here with you.

"The Final Flight"

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,

I’m following the path God laid for me.

I took His hand when I heard Him call,

I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,

To laugh, to love, to work, or play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way,

I’ve found peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,

then fill it with a remembered joy.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Ah, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life’s been full, I’ve savored much,

Good friends, good times a loved one’s touch,

Perhaps my time seems all too brief.

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your hearts to share with me

God wanted me now, He set me free.

"Carry Me Home"

My loved ones do not cry

And worry of me

For like the dove

I have been set free.

God has called me

To my mansion on high

Just there among the clouds

In the deep blue sky.

I have no pain

No suffering to do

I have been called home

And i know you will too.

So beat hard and fast

Little wings off white

And carry me home

Before the night.

“Little Dove”

On the wings of this white dove

I’ll set your spirit free.

Up into the big deep sky,

To heaven, where you’ll be.

I know God has a plan for us,

He wants us by his side.

But it is hard for us to understand

When we are left behind.

Little dove, help lift our hearts

As we watch you go,

God is there if we just ask,

Because He loves us so!

In Loving Memory of (your loved ones name)

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,

Tasks left undone must stay that way,

I’ve found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembered joy.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My Life’s been full, I savored much,

Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me,

God wanted me now, He set me free.

"With the Rustle of Wings"

In Loving Memory of my brother, ----------

With the rustle of wings

I’ll take your memories along

As I soar up to the heavens

From where they just played that song.

Just part your hands open

As you feel my beating heart.

My soul is alive as I

Now depart.

With the rustle of wings,

I’ll enter the pearly gates.

I’ll be with family from long ago and

For you I will wait.

Always keep this feather close

As a reminder of my souls release

And in every whisper of the wind you’ll hear

the rustle of my wings.

"God Saw You Getting Tired"

God saw you getting tired

When a cure was not to be.

So He wrapped His arms around you,

And whispered, “Come unto me”.

You didn’t deserve what you went through,

And so He gave you rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful,

He only takes the best.

So when I saw you sleeping,

So peaceful and free from pain.

I could not wish you to come back,

to suffer that all again.

"Mother and Child"

In loving memory of ((your loved ones name)

Our loved ones do not weep and worry of us….

We’re being carried to the arms of our precious Jesus.

Just my baby and me on the wings of a dove…

The angels are waiting in the heavens above.

To take us to our mansion just beyond those pearly gates…

To help us get settled in where there we will wait.

For our loved ones to join us above in heavens nursery…

to see the miracle of eternal life and feel the power of Gods mercy.

"The Broken Chain"

We little knew that day, 
God was going to call your name. 
In life we loved you dearly, 
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone. 
For part of us went with you, 
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories, 
Your love is still our guide. 
And although we cannot see you, 
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken, 
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
