I never thought I'd say goodbye.
I thought for me you would someday cry.
You were my partner, my very soul.
Your gentle nature made me whole.

How I hated watching you fade.
It robbed the world of the sense it once made.
So much left, so much to do.
I never thought I'd cry for you.

I never thought I would have to see
what it's like with no you to be me.
This is what challenges my hope, my heart,
knowing our souls are, for now, torn apart.

Yet, somewhere inside this unbearable ache
I can feel your touch, and go on for your sake.
You whisper to me, from heaven above,
saying carry your heart to those you love.

You ask me to keep the children so near.
Remind them, to you, they will always be dear.
You know that we'll spend forever someday.
With the gentlest laugh you tell me "go play".

Play with the children, live for what's here.
For, deep in my being, your are still so near.
So, goodbye, for now, I'll do what you wish;
but wait there in heaven and save me a kiss.



 Grant that I may not judge my niegbor until I have walked a mile in his moccasians

Your poem is wonderful and you've expressed so well what it is to remain behind when your love passes on. This stirs so many memories for me. Thank you for sharing this.

This is so sweet Christies.
I know that heaven holds a place for the two of you to meet and share a much greater love that any of us will ever know here on earth.
Thank you for Sharing and God Bless




 Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
And the begining of a new one.

Thank you all for such kind words. I wish my Father in Law were the least bit computer literate! My Mother in Law (more like a mom) passed away after a suddenly debilitating illness. This was 2 months ago. I wrote this on the day of the funeral for my Father in Law. This is what he expressed. He had always been "sick" and she the caretaker. He has been so lost since. :{

Remember love lasts longer than time, it will last forever, I am sure we will all be united as one big happy group after we pass on, a very touching poem, pulling on my Heart strings . Stay happy .

 With poetry as your weapon - express your iner feelings so all may carry your sorrow, united as one .

I must agree that it is hard to cope with loosing a loved one but it is even harder to say that you will be waiting until that day comes. Don't get me wrong hold on to the love that you had but don't push off the love that you could recive. You expressed yourself very well in this poem, good job.
