Joy Amidst Tears - Poem by Tessa Gaoses

Even though the pain is great
Although the tears are there
Sometimes I think of you and cry
There are times I think of you and smile
At times thoughts of you make me laugh

For although I miss you terribly
You left me so much to treasure
So many memories to cherish
That even amidst the pain
I still manage to smile and to laugh

All I have left is the echo of your voice
Songs we sang, conversations we had
Things we did, how we teased each other
Your smile ever imprinted in my mind
The warmth of your embrace so comforting

Then there are those that make my cry
The plans we had never to be realized
The things you were working on, never to be done
Your beautiful wedding, never to take place
Your angel who now has to grow up without you

Yes there are things that bring me agony
Times I wish there was no death
Or not to have cared so much, and not feel so much
But besides the pain that is oh so grave
The joy you brought to me is so much greater

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is another tribute to my friend Sandra. She died very unexpectedly, she was not ill or anything.
