Shed Your Tear

Updated on February 18, 2011

To my beloved sons, and grandson, and to all who feel or have felt the pain and sorrow of loss that death leaves in its wake...there is comfort beneath the shadow of His Wing and joy that reunion awaits! Love lives on...

My Love,

Shed your tear, then say good bye,
but know that on new wings I fly.
Weep not long, for I am near.
The love we've shared can't disappear.
Our hearts are bound by sacred thread...
Embrace our memories, instead...
and know that sorrow, now your friend,
gives way to joy. You'll heal and mend...
Think of me with tender smile...
for you have made my life worthwhile,
and rest assured, that I will wait
for you, with joy, at Heaven's Gate,
and what a celebration, then!
There we will meet once again.
Though I soar in Heaven's skies,
whisper my name and close your eyes...
See me in you deepest heart,
and know our spirits never part.
Eternally,

Me

      I know that ten thousand years from now we will still have our loves and we'll all be together.

      Life, and love, is a gift without limits. How lucky your sons are to have you and your love for an eternity...

      A beautiful poem, but now I can't see to do my work - my eyes are fogged up for some reason ;).

      Will.

      Tnderhrt, your words are blossoming my soul with rich tones. I love what you said,

      "Think of me with tender smile...

      for you have made my life worthwhile,

      and rest assured, that I will wait

      for you, with joy, at Heaven's Gate"

      What an awesome picture that paints.

      I needed to hear this today. God Bless You.

      ahorseback, to be honest, it was written with my sons in mind...and a few of my friends, like Fossillady, and Epi, and others here who have lost loved ones. This is one of those Divine writes...thank you for your read and comment!

      Genna, thank you.

      saddlerider, I truly believe that our loved ones await us...I want my sons to know that they are loved and I will be waiting for them...hugs to you!

      Thank you for sharing your awesome poetry. You believe as i, that we will meet our loved one's again. I lost my Sister Bea, she was older, like a second Mother, when i think of her, i think we will be together again and that brings me peace.

      Cheers
