My Promise - Poem by Trish Spencer

Things haven't been the same
Since you've been gone.
For a while I wondered
How I'd carry on.

The emptiness inside,
It aches all the time.
That is the reason why
I am writing this rhyme.

When I heard the news,
I didn't know what to do.
It happened so suddenly,
It just couldn't be true.

They said you'd passed on,
And you weren't coming home.
You'd gone on to Heaven,
Where your soul could roam.

I cried all day
And I cried all night.
I say I'm okay,
But I'm not quite alright.

How can I pretend
That I'm not still in pain,
And wipe away the tears
That fall like rain?

I'll remember that day,
The day that we met,
And your smiling face
I will never forget.

This is my promise,
A vow I'll keep evermore:
You'll be in my heart
Until I reach Heaven's shores.
