While you are full of pain and sorrow
And the loss feels too much to bear;
There will always be tomorrow
And one day-you'll see and I'll be there!
My heart is breaking writing this
I know you loved him so;
He was so very ill that
You just had to let him go.
The pain you're feeling now
Will lessen over time;
Till then I'll do anything
To ease this painful climb.
The sorrow that I feel
Keeps coming in on waves;
Hold on tight at this painful time
As you are being very brave.
Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which
stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you
I walked a mile with Pleasure.
She chattered all the way,
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.
I walked a mile with Sorrow,
And ne'er a word said she;
But oh, the things
I learned from her
When Sorrow walked with me!
I feel so sincere but very intense
Whilst I try and deal with this grief;
I miss the hugs and great affection
Although his time on earth was brief.
The season of mourning
Like spring, summer,
Fall and winter,
Will also pass.
Goodnight, my angel, time to close your eyes
And save these questions for another day.
I think I know what you've been asking me;
I think you know what I've been trying to say.
I promised I would never leave you,
And you should always know, wherever you may go,
No matter where you are, I will never be far away.
Goodnight, my angel, now it's time to sleep,
And still so many things I want to say.
Remember all the songs you sang for me
When we went sailing on an emerald bay?
And like a boat out on the ocean, I'm rocking you to sleep.
The water's dark, and deep inside this ancient heart,
You'll always be a part of me.
Goodnight, my angel, now it's time to dream,
And dream how wonderful your life will be.
Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby,
Then in your heart there will always be a part of me.
Someday we'll all be gone, but lullabies go on and on . . .
They never die
That's how you and I will be.
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and suffering is over
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And he came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread
And with Jesus' arm to lean on
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's will.
There is still work waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is completed,
He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!
While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
I Miss You Daddy!
Dear God, I need to know why did you take him above?
His name is James Royce Henry, he is someone that I loved.
He was my Daddy, I was his little girl.
I miss him so much since he left our family.
It's a horrible nightmare to be stricken with cancer,
There are so many questions no one can answer.
If I had one more chance, I'd hug him real tight.
I'd tell him I love him and kiss him good-bye.
This poem is not perfect it's just how I feel.
I miss you Daddy, my pain is real.
Mary A. Henry
A brief candle; both ends burning
An endless mile; a bus wheel turning
A friend to share the lonesome times
A handshake and a sip of wine
So say it loud and let it ring
We are all a part of everything
The future, present and the past
Fly on proud bird
You're free at last
I can't allow myself to waver
Not even for a second;
If I allow my doubts and fears
I will buckle and my death beckon
Sadness is overwhelming at this point in time
The weather that day was treacherous;
I can't bear it that he's gone at only 39
For no other reason would he have left us.
When someone called he always helped
No matter what the day or time;
He's probably helping God right now
He was an angel but not yours - mine
I wasn't ready to let him go
and this pain is just to great;
So look after him and keep him safe
As he's going to have to wait.
I'll be a while because of the kids
he loved them so and they too him;
He'd hate to hear them crying
They're singing now,it’s his favourite hymn.
Pick yourselves up he'd say
and get on with your lives
But we'll miss you every day we say
I'm here, I'll never go so just sit down and pray
LOSS OF A LIFELONG BESTEST FRIEND
I knew I was going to miss you
I know you had to go.
The office is empty without you
Your chair will have to go.
Your headstone has not been put up yet
but the flowers are still there,
I have to go and talk to you still
To let you know I care.
The diff'rence without you butting in
More pointless empty chat.
Is boring and more than I can bear
Thinking,wondering just where you are at?
Is it nice with sunshine up above
as promised in The Book
Which cloud? as I send my love to you<br>
Trust you! You always are in the front,
You had to be the first.
You'd better hang around for me though!
otherwise my heart will burst.
