My Sad Heart - Poem by Richard Netherland Cook

I went out to the sea
And sat there by the shore
Among the cragged rocks and sand,
And all the ocean roar.

In my heart there beat
A pain as not before;
Such sadness in my mind I felt,
And through my heart it tore.

Before me flashed sweet memories
Of a love that cannot be replaced,
And a vision in my mind did draw
The lines of her sweet face.

Her ways were loving, gentle and kind
My thoughts did wonder far
I thought that she may be, now seeing me
From a far off distant star.

Her loving arms around me
No longer can I feel
Just one more moment in her life
I wish that I could steal.

Though her years were many
I still do miss her so,
And I have asked many times
Why she had to go?

God in heaven does not disclose
The hours on earth we keep,
And now my love has passed away
Into her final sleep.

Her voice I hear whisper in my ear
Get up and walk away
I am not lost to you forever
We will meet again someday.

I will be here waiting to greet you
When God calls out your name,
And the love we shared upon the earth
Will be forever and the same.
