I sit here in complete silence,
Why does life get harder?
Maybe we’re not supposed to understand
Life’s meaning, but a friend is forever, life is short.
Why do we always rejoice when someone passes?        
  But, everyone cries when a baby is born?
Why, Lord, can’t I find the answers to these questions?
Am I selfish to think life is supposed to be this way?
I know life holds a certain purpose,
Lord, please help me find these answers?
In my heart’s secret chamber,
Each of you live on…
Your memories I shall hold forever.
Why do I feel so guilty?
I haven’t said goodbye.
Even though I can feel my pain,
I can’t express how I feel.
My heart weeps in grievous sorrow,
Tears flow like spring rains.
I close my eyes at night,
I want to cry.
My heart just aches,
Why did you have to go?
Now I stand alone,
Just your memory lingers on.
Never again will I feel your
Hand on my shoulder or look across the room
To feel the security of just knowing you were there.
How I miss your smile
And the laughter in your eyes
There was an empty place
At Heaven’s table,
God called you home one-by-one.
Like leaves on a tree
Our days are numbered.
From the budding of life in spring,
To the quiet solace of winter’s first snow,
Some day when at last my journey is over
I will rejoin you all in a place
Of eternal peace and rest.
Until that day stay with me
My beloved friends,
I shall cherish your memories
And keep you close in my heart
Forever more.

Foreverfriends and jusbaloo

This is a beautiful poem that I am so glad you posted. Means a lot to me as you know. I ask myself "Why" everyday. Looking forward to reading more of your poetry.

A sad ache that all too many have felt in their lifetimes I am sure.  Well done and welcome to Passions.  Kindly read your email.

I am sad to hear that the author of this beautiful and poignant poem has passed on, but probably as she says she is now with all of those loved ones she missed so much. And it is comforting to know that she too is remembered with love by you, your friend jusbaloo.

Thank you for letting us know. The blue pages have lost throughout these years many beautiful souls and poets, we keep them within our hearts. Reading again their words brings them close.

Peace and joy to you Stephanie H. - foreverfriends, at HOME.

Welcome to you, maybe you decide to stay and share your own creative works?

Love and peace.
Margherita
