Grief Poem - Our Life Moves On ...
Last updated 9/3/2021 at 8:12am
'Twas a gray day, inside and out; sprinkles of rain and tears.
You're missed, dear one; yes, every day, and week, or even years.
We look outside, memories come back of things we used to do.
We traveled some, flew here and there, and visited a zoo!
Remembering, you'd sweep the garage, then wash and wax the car.
Carwash is now a handy place and it's not very far.
It's mowing day, the neighbor guys, B., D. and M. work hard.
Remembering how you did that too; we had a lovely yard.
Grieving is hard, we need some help; a neighbor gal stopped by.
She's grieving too, 'bout different things; sometimes it helps to cry.
Take him/her within Your arms, dear Lord, and cherish him/her with care.
Make up for all he/she suffered here, and all that seemed unfair.
We think of you in silence, dear, and often speak your name,
But all we have are memories and pictures in a frame.
Your resting place we do visit, put flowers there with care.
But no one knows how our heart aches; we turn and leave you there.
Sadly, you're missed most every day, we try hard not to grieve,
Lord, be with us, give us Your Peace, for shortly, earth we'll leave.
Clouds move around, change colors, too; might promise some more rain,
Sometimes the Sun will peep on through, that helps to ease heart pain.
Meanwhile, our life, slowly goes on, then - Blue colors the sky!!
Soon Father God will call us home, and off to Heaven we'll fly.
