Heaven Sent - Poem by Patricia Grantham

A special gift from God above
Sent to you to show His love
Passing through just for awhile
Will say one day there is my child

The time has come to return home
Journey is over no more to roam
Hoping to see you again someday
In His bosom is where I will lay

Try not to worry or grieve too much
Lived my life have savored your touch
For now I am happy and free from pain
An earthly loss but a heavenly gain

    An earthly loss but a heavenly gain.
    Surely, it takes real faith to say that.
    Unless one knows the words of God.
    A lovely poem, well done! (Report) Reply

    'In His bosom is where I will lay' What a wish; and
    'Lived my life have savored your touch' no regrets for earthly experience and yet freedom from pain is what is savored.Lovely poem indeed. (Report) Reply

    An earthly loss but a heavenly gain
    We must live while we live and when we leave we do not lose, we gain. Beautiful. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Well said, the moment I feel that it's the time to leave - no need to find loss or gain.
    My time is up not any more. (Report) Reply

    Man's life is so beautifully summed up! What else can we crave in life? In the eyes of the world, what seems a loss is a gain by heaven's standards! ! (Report) Reply
