Though I'm Gone I Feel Your Love

To my dear family,
I'm sending this from above,
That even though I'm gone from earth,
I can still feel your love,
And all the times we spent together,
Growing a love that would last forever,
Are times that will never leave,
Because you remember me.
I'm sorry about the timing,
For I didn't want to leave,
But God called me home,
So I fell into eternal sleep.
There was so much left to do here,
Cause God took me quite young,
I had a loving family,
And so much to teach my son.
I'm sure you all can make it,
You have God by your side,
And just to let you know,
I'm enjoying this long heavenly harley ride.
If any of you ever need me,
Just close your eyes and I'll be there,
I'll help you through your life,
If you remember how much I cared.
I want you all to know today,
That I love you very much,
And even though I'm gone from earth,
I can still feel your love.

I don't want to hate this poem but it made me cry so much. I remembered my Dad who passed away almost two years ago, Nov. 24, 2012, when I was just thirteen years old. I know this is the exact way he feels up there and it breaks my heart so much. I don't know how can I show my Dad how much I love him because he's too far and I can't even call him. But I know, he's been enjoying his eternal stay there.. with God. And someday, I'll be with him once more. Maybe 20 years from now, 30 years or 50 years... I can't tell. But someday, somehow. Thanks to the author of this poem.

This poem has touched my heart for a million and one reasons. It made me cry. I lost my husband 2011 to cancer it's hard to move on. Every minute of every day he is in my thoughts and not a day goes by that the tears don't come on their own. Little things you see or that special word you hear touches the heart. This is a keeper for my daughter, son, son-in-law and for my 5 beautiful grandchildren who love and miss him dearly

Thank you so much for sharing this poem, it just reminded me of my grandfather that passed away 10 years back. He was my role model, he use to tell me stories about how he fought in the 2nd world war and he liked his job so much because he was fighting for us as well. I miss you Grandpa and I know that one day I will see you again. May his soul rest in peace.

Thank you for your poem Steven, I lost my father 9 months ago to a very short illness, cancer. He was diagnosed 6 weeks before he passed away, but 10 months before that I lost my one and only son very suddenly at the age of 27 years and I believe that my father was taken to look after my son Patrick and it gives me comfort to know that Patrick is with his grandfather and could not be with a better person as my dad was a legend. May the two of them be happy where they are till we meet again R.I.P.....

Loosing you hurt so bad...
No one knows how much I miss you dad!
Loosing you really broke me down...
And I still can not believe you're not around.
Memories of you are engraved in my heart...
So there for we will never grow apart!
I'm sad that I never got a chance to say good-bye...
When I think of you I can not help but to cry!!
I hold my tears back so no one can see,
How much the lost of you is really killing me.
I know you wanted to live longer and I know you tried,
But I learned sadly that people are born to die:(
Before you went through the golden gates and clouds of blue
I didn't get a chance to tell you how much I love you!!
I love you so much and I want you to know,
I wish you were still here to see me grow!
I learned that saying "good-bye" is bad...
So I guess I will see you later dad!! <3

I'm so glad I found this! I didn't realize that my poem had even been put on here. My mother had sent it in after I gave it to her. Thank you all for the compliments and God bless you in your times of grief!

Thanks to FFP & Steven for sharing your poem! It's nearly Father's Day which always makes me feel sad knowing he's not around. The poem is very touching, it made me cry. It felt like my father was really talking to me...never stopped loving us and still watches over me and the entire family, I'm sure he does. Just wanna tell him over and over that "I love you, tatay, we all do! We will always love you forever and will never forget you!"

I'm very touched. This poem bring tears to my eyes. I lost my dad few years ago, I wasn't able to say goodbye to him which made it harder for me to accept.. I dearly love him. For me he is the best dad. I'm so glad I saw this poem. I can feel that he is there for us always guiding us and making sure that we are all ok.

I read this poem on the day I was attending the funeral of my cousin, who died aged 32. He died in a tragic accident while quad biking in Doha with my younger brother and his friends.
I passed this poem to both my brother and my aunty, whom had it printed out and read at the funeral.
Although I cried when reading this poem, it has eased my fears, and had made me feel at ease about his departure from us.
I'm so glad that I read this poem at such a sad moment in my life. Thank you. :0)
