You Were One Of Heaven's Golden Pearls - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

Will I ever see you again?

Beyond the veil of tears

will you be there when I can

cross the abyss beyond Death's fears?


Will I know you on sight?

As I travel through the tunnel of stars

You standing on the bridge of light

Your pale shadow seems so far


Can I touch you one more time?

Back to Eden you have gone

into the Soul's blissful clime

and Heaven's heavenly song.


Why do I feel so sad?

You are where you belong

and I am still here just as glad

that I am where I can be strong.


Grief is such a strong emotion

it never let's the mourner go

it holds on tight in real devotion

as you bask in Heaven's glow


What Angel are you with today?

Or is it just your starlit soul

that brings such glad and happy days

but now in grief I let you go.


Will I ever see you again?

How will I know it is you?

When the your pages in The Book Of Life regains

the beautiful soul that is you


You were an angel among us

when you walked upon this Earth

And now you are star shine glorious

in your spiritual rebirth.

Topic(s) of this poem: angel, death, grief , heaven

    hi, lorraine!

    this poem got my attention because i've wondered and written several poems about what awaits. if you haven't read them already you might find interesting

    my eye must take second place
    different with God
    thinking of one just passed
    where, dad?
    how faint and elusive

    our recognition that our spirits live on is certainly central to our faith—as paul said so eloquently, where, death, is your sting? and i think of what is probably donne's most famous holy sonnet, death, be not proud.

    comfort to you.

    Lorraine, this is a heart-wrenching poem that so powerfully expresses your intense pain at the loss of your loved one. And yet, liberates you from that pain by you knowing that that soul is in heaven. Many kudos for this excellent write. (Report)Reply

    Grief is such a strong emotion that scribbles mind at each moment. Death is truth in life and definite destination of material life. Soul's blissful clime and Heaven's heavenly song motivate mind still once more. Brilliant and wonderful poem is shared here is really very motivational one.10 (Report)Reply

    Lorraine Margueritte, this sounds as though it was written about someone you cared for deeply, perhaps a deceased spouse. I have a soft-spot for grief poetry, being no stranger to grief myself, and having myself penned numerous grief poems. It is on the basis of that experience (just call me Grief Girl) that I am qualified to pronounce this poem as A + material. Thank you for expressing so beautifully what so many feel, but are unable to put into words because of the intense pain. (Report)Reply

    As soon as I can get in to edit one of the lines I will make the correction.My computer is acting up..The line should read: When your page in The Book Of Life regains..I just didn't catch it after my pc hiccuped and the internet froze momentarily on me.. (Report)Reply
