There's an Emptiness Inside

Updated on July 23, 2015

There's an Emptiness Inside

The days are getting sadder

and life seems drearier without

you. There’s an emptiness inside

where pains and sorrows increase.

I try to remember you with laughter

and all the fun we had, but there’s

something that’s missing way down inside.

I wish you were here, so my life can once

more be happy and full of cheer.

Why did you have to leave me dear?

If we only knew that death was so near

and my life would be full of tear.

We' d lived like there was no tomorrow

and parting sorrow.

Grandma's are Awesome

This world is not my home

The angels beckon me from

Heaven's open door & I

can't feel like home in this

world anymore.


Some day beyond the reach

of mortal ken I will be singing

God only knows just where &


I still don't believe you're gone

People say I’d get it over, but how can I?

When the spark of my life is gone? When

Joy seems like it’s over and everything has

lost it’s meaning?

I still don’t believe you’re gone, as

I see and think of you every day I see you

walking and making your way on the street

for exercise. I hear the door opening just as you

use to, and every morning when I’m there I hear

you making your tea.

It’s like you didn’t really left me, because the

memories of you are still so real. Nobody knows

how I feel, when I enter the yard the place is

so silent and there’s something that’s missing.

The house doesn't feel the same

The house doesn’t feel the same anymore,

When I open the door and I know

you’re not there! When I call your name and there’s

no answer.

I walk into your room, sadness and grief

strikes my heart, when I look around I see your

glasses and there’s no eyes to wear them anymore.

I see your shoes and clothes and I wonder are you really


I remember leaving you on your bed that Monday

I left you in good spirits, you asked me to hand you

your bible so that you can read and pray. Few hours after

I received a call to say you’re not doing well. I never knew

It would be the last day I’d see you home, never knew

that your life was almost done.

Grandma's are the BEST!!!


This World is not my own....

An Angel took you away

I rushed home but you wasn't there, the ambulance

came and took you away and when I saw you, you

couldn't speak.

Then you were transferred to the

hospital I could see you still wanted to live, you

hung on for a few hours more. I left you there

with the hope of returning later that day.

But to my dismay the nurse said you passed away,

an angel came and you just couldn't stay……………

      I usally do not miss good hubs or poerty, this one really slipped by me ladyfiddler,

      Great expression that is heartfelt, I am sure God Jehovah know your pain of a loss loved one. He would know the exact feeling when his son died on earth, the earth did strange things when this happened ,

      Mt 27:51 And look! the curtain of the sanctuary was torn in two, from top to bottom, and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split.

      Lu 23:45 because the sunlight failed; then the curtain of the sanctuary was torn down the middle.

      What did the army officer say as a, eyewitness,

      Mr 15:39Now when the army officer who was standing by with him in view saw that he had expired under these circumstances, he said: “Certainly this man was God’s Son.”

      So hear we can see that death is not just a human enemy, but it is also God's

      Lu 20:38 He is a God, not of the dead, but of the living, for they are all living to him.”

      Joh 5:28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice

      Joh 5:29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.

      Re 21:4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

      You see ladyfiddler death will end, and our loved ones can return back here under a New rebuilt earth.

      Yes Jesus died but he lives, and so will our family and friends return written and promised.

      2Pe 3:13 But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his (promise), and in these righteousness is to dwell.

      and how do we know it is a promise to come true.

      Tit 1:2 and is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago;

      We should be there to see this promise fulfilled.

      I hope this will give you strength and faith

      We will see these fufilled soon.

      This poem truly moved me Lady fiddler. I know how it feels to lose someone so special. Parent's are always adored, but its something special about the relationships between grandparents and grandchildren. Thanks for sharing your heart. Stay blessed.

      Oh, Dear Jo,

      Your poetry struck me so deep in my heart and I am so moved. I think writing is a good way to help you with your grieving and expressing yourself. I can understand about you expecting to see her right there where she was every day and then seeing her glasses, really brought it home.

      (((Hugs))) and much love, sweetie
