Hope In Heaven's Day - Poem by Arlene Dery

Grief be mine, I ask you so,
If not for you, I wouldn't know,
How life once was and then be still,
How so precious, that death do steal.
Because that grief, won't go away,
Learn to let it have its way.
The link to love, a precious one,
Is met with grief and still not done.
The days do come, and nights do go,
Grief will stay as time is so.
And so a loved one passes on,
And grief comes in and carries on.
Does grief get better, I will ask,
It's hard to say, while at its task.
There is grief to help us cope,
There is God to give us hope.
Grief will surely go away,
On that glorious heaven's day.
But while its here, there's just one thing,
Pray our Lord, for peace he'll bring.

    Grief has touched your heart and mind with such gentle, tender memories that when you pen your poems they awaken losses we have also shared in some small way. May you find your way through grief and feelings while writing them for all to read and see. Hopefully bringing some moments of peace into your life. This poem is very good, please keep writing, I will continue reading. Thank you for sharing, RoseAnn (Report) Reply
