LOVED ONES

LOVED ONES

My wonderful family,
I miss you so much.
I am always with you
no matter what.

Please don’t forget me,
I haven’t gone far.
I’m here in Heaven
quite close by.

I haven’t abandoned you
don’t ever think that.
I am happy here although
you are there.

I am sorry I left you so suddenly,
but God called me to help him,
so I went right away.

I know that you’re sad
and in pain that is bad.
But it will get easier as
time passes by.

I was happy and content
with the time that we had.
I’m sorry it was so short,
but great all the same.

I love all of you so very much,
you will never forget me
of that I am sure.

Although I’m not with you
in body and in mind,
I am there in spirit
for how ever long you need
me to stay.

I am here with the family,
who had gone on ahead.
They are happy I’m here,
they did meet me at the gate.

Don’t be sad, just cry a little while.
I will wait for your arrival.
I don’t know how long it will be,
but soon you will realise
I still love you, my dear family.
