Home at Last

by Steven
(Perth, Western Australia)

Returned to the earth
Your ashes we've placed
With hearthache and pain
The sadness I've faced

It's all over now
No more left to do
But get through each day
Holding memories of you

So hard to accept
You're no longer here
Forever you've gone
In my heart you're still near

I think of you often
Many times every day
Your love is still with me
And forever will stay

Rest peacefully my love
You're home at last
I will join you soon
When MY time has past

I really like your poem.I reminds me of the one I wrote where at the end I told my husband to wait for me at the pearly gates-I'll be there but I'll be late. I have to hold onto that fact or I couldn't make it.It has been almost 17months now for me.I miss him terribly.I get so lonely at times.I know I was blessed to have him for 33 yrs and I wouldn't have wanted him to live the life he would have had to live if he had stayed.(on oxygen 24/7 and chemo).He was so weak and had lost so much weight I don't think he would have survived very long.He is out of pain now and happy.I will run to him again one day.I pray nightly for all of us who have sent loved ones on ahead of us.Though it's hard I know GOD has reasons for these things. Look on U-Tube for a song called 'BLESSINGS'.It is so beautiful.GOD bless you and give you strength
