God Needed You More Than I Do

Updated on October 18, 2010

Your light will always shine

In Loving Memory Of Sue Wanjura

I sit here and cry and wonder why God would take someone like you,

I can't find the answer no matter what I do.

Everyone always tells me that "He only takes the best",

but why did he take you and leave all the rest.

I need you so much, why would he take someone like you,

you left me here alone not knowing what to do.

My head is in my hands, as I sit here and cry,

how could he take you, why did you have to die?

The pain tears at my heart, why would God take someone like you?

tears run down my cheeks, I don't know what to do.

Then all the sudden it came to me, why he took you home,

you were in so much pain, now you'll never be alone.

Now I understand why God took someone like you,

I needed you so much, but heaven needed you too.

He needed you to bring more smiles to all the angels faces,

He needed you to shine your light in all his special places.

He needed you to make more flowers grow,

He needed you to sing, he needed you to share your special love among all of heavens wonderful things.

Now I understand why he took someone like you, even though I need you so much,

God needed you in heaven too!!

Welcome home my good and faithful servant. Well Done !!
Welcome home my good and faithful servant. Well Done !!

To Aunt Sue I'll Never Forget You

The phone rang this morning and they told me you were gone. God had come for you while you were alone. It was only a few days ago that we spoke together on the phone, you told me that you loved me, to have faith and hold on. I can't believe that your gone and I'll never hear your voice, I would have gladly taken your place if God gave me the choice. You know I'll never forget you, how you took away my sorrows. We'll be together again one day soon in that sweet tomorrow.

This is written for my Aunt Sue Wanjura who died three days ago. Her body was found today and my family called me. She was like a mother to me and like me she was disabled and lived alone. She fell in the restroom hitting her head on the tub, her neck was broken, she died immediately. I will forever wonder if someone had been there if it would have happened. We talked everyday on the phone and she could always make me smile. She would send me cards and little gifts to lift my spirits when things weren't going well or just to surprise me. She was always there to talk it didn't matter what time it was. She was never too busy. I love her very much and she will never be forgotten.

      christalluna1124 - I feel your loss. On October 27, 2008 my brother's body was found in my home cold and lifeless due to complications of diabetes. I sit here typing yards away from where his body was found. A Pastor once told my sister regarding the death of her 2nd oldest son at the tender age of 21 (complications of diabetes): God picks the best of His Garden to make way for the rest of us. Let's hope so. I feel your pain my love. Peace to you and yours.

      Thank you for visiting my hubs. I am glad you enjoyed the poem for my aunt. I really miss her. It still hasn't hit me yet I pick up the phone and dial her number then realize she's gone.
