I’m so blessed to share some poems about grief from the beautiful Julia at autismthoughts.wordpress.com…..Thank you for sharing your heart and loving words.
In Loving Memory
You may seem gone, but you’re still here.
I feel you in my heart.
My love for you will always live.
Your memory stays near.
And though your soul may be in heaven
And your body laid to rest,
I know your heart stays here with me,
The one who loved you best.
So go have fun up where you’ll fly
And save a spot for me
I know that I must stay a while,
Until my time has come.
So until then, please help me live
Help me be happy here
And be my angel watching me
Until I’m back with you.
MY UNKNOWN NEPHEW
I never met you, I wish I had.
I never even knew your dad.
Your mother says you were strong, but small.
Still I wish I’d known you at all.
I wish I held your little hand.
I wish you would have lived to stand.
I wish I saw your little face.
But in my heart, you hold a place.
I think of you sometimes at night,
How your soul just took to flight.
I guess you couldn’t stick around.
Maybe it’s better you never learned to frown.
Maybe you’re happier where you are.
Maybe you even have a favorite star.
I guess I won’t know till I meet you someday.
So in this world I’ll have to stay,
Until the day when it’s time to meet you.
That day sometimes seems so far from my view.
But your mother and I will do our best.
We’ll try hard to ace this test.
And one day when I meet you at last,
I’ll forget the pain of the past.
I’ll hold you close because I never got to
And I’ll finally meet the nephew I never knew.
*I would love to hear from more of you and share your words on my blog. You never know the power of words. For they could make a difference and change a life when we least expect it.
