Poems of Sympathy
Our Loved Ones remain in hearts and minds
Despite how pain deceives.
The cherished times are eternal,
Shared joys never leave.
We all know you’re lost
And that you’re in pain,
That you’re looking for light,
And it seems all in vain
We’re all sharing your grief
You’re at the front of our minds
We’ll give what we can,
Our strength and our time.
And in time you will start
To accept the sorrow,
To put yesterday back
In this time where love’s been lost,
Grief can’t be ignored.
But don’t forget the smiles and joy
The two of you adored.
The joy you shared is eternal
For the love one who has gone
The brightness gifted by your life
Will go forever on.
So consider with your sorrow
The happiness bestowed
By you on our special much loved friend,
Our gratitude is owed.
We’ll never know why some things are,
Why they should come to be.
Why fate can deal the cruelest blows
Ignorant of the debris.
All we can do is keep what’s left
And treasure what we’ve known
And tell others who have loved and lost;
Our loves never leave us alone.
Far beyond tomorrow,
Some time down the line
Pain becomes fond sorrow
With the passage of much time.
It’s not about forgetting
The one that’s gone away,
It’s remembering their love for you
And their wish that love lights your days.
