A Poem For A Loved One

Now There's No More Pain,
No More Loneliness,
This Is What You Gain,
And We Are Happy To Know You Can Finally Rest.
For The Better Part Of A Century,
You Touched Many A Life,
As A Teacher,
A Mother,
A Grandmother Many Times Great,
You Were The Matriarchal Head Of This Family,
Of This Tribe.
Life For You Was Never Easy,
Raising Four Boys, Who, At Times,
You Had To Struggle To Feed,
But You Did It,
And When I Hear The Stories,
It Doesnt Come As A Surprise...
Strong, Resourceful, Intelligent
Warrior Of A Woman,
This Is How I See You In The Place Behind My Eyes.
You Fascinated Me To No End,
Kind Woman With Infallible Wit,
So Many Amazing Stories You Told,
To This, And Many Other A Grandchild.
And Now.............................................< br>I Know The Visits Will Never Be The Same,
It Hurts A Little To Realize That,
And I Know It's Alright To Cry,
As Much As I Hate To,
But I Need To Remember To Be Strong,
It's In My Blood, So I Have To Try.
Once I'm Done Grieving,
I Will Realize For A Third Time
What I Have Already Realized Twice This Year,
That You Are Better Off Now.
There Is No More Suffering For You,
And To Add To That,
You Can Finally Reunite,
With Your Son,
Who Was Taken From You So Early On In Life.
We Never Really Die,
I Feel Strongly About This,
My Heart And Mind And Sould Do Not Lie,
I Know In Some Way,
You Will Always Be There,
Watching Us All, Helping Us When We Need It,
Just As You've Always Done.
And With This, I End My Poem To You......
I Love You, We Love You,
Keep An Eye On Us All,
We All Keep You're Words Etched In Our Minds,
And Your Face Etched On Each Heart,
And From Us,
Each Memory Of You Shall Never Part.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
