A Birthday Gift
Dreams and Memories
Lay With Me Forever
>> View all 56
The loss of a parent is never easy, but I was lucky enough to spend the last 2 months with my father before he died from cancer.
Angels mortal, stay with me
As I walk life’s shadowed edge
For my life is bound with thee
Our smiles love’s silent pledge
Your presence brings my soul to bare
My child, my flesh, my blood, my pride
Tender moments now we share
Speaking words once kept inside
These moments shared in anguished days
Precious memories will become
Never fading, they will stay
And bring smiles in years to come
But it’s God’s will that he take me
So my time on earth be done
That day my love he frees
To live within your heart as one
In heaven reunited
You’ll return my love to me
Into my arms invited
Where forever you shall be
You may not hear my voice each day
But know that I am there
So remember words I say
For it’s more than life we share

|Hi Ed J,
This is very meaningful to me and strikes close to home. I just lost my brother too and this poem just reassures me death is not the end, we will be together soon. Just like your father, the love and memories he left me will always warm my heart.
