Missing You Poem

A child wonders what it's like up in heaven.

When You Died

© Rhianon S. Glissendorf
When you died my whole
World came crashing down
On me
I see you in my dreams,
Everywhere I look are the
Memories of you
It's been ten long years, but
It still feels like yesterday
That I lost you forever
I blamed myself, but I learned
That God needed you more than
We did, but why then?
I've been wishing I was dead for
A long time now, so I can join you
Up in heaven, is it really that?
The day you died my life ended,
and I was only six.

*a true story about my mom,Roxane. R.I.P. mom*

  • Everyday I wish you were here talking to me. Telling me don't let anyone get in your way. I need you very much. All the times you told me that I had a choice in life that's why I made it in life and I am happy to have a angel like you looking after me through thick and thin because without you I have nothing to guide me.

  • Everyone says I am strong, after losing my husband in NOV. 2012 my brother, FEB. 2013, my mother, MAR 2013. What they don't realize is that I still need them. My kids haven't let me down, but my one brother and three sisters have, and I need them to.

  • My grandpa died this year, January 5th, 2014
    He was a good man people tell me I am strong, I blamed myself that he died. I was sent away when I fount out he was sick. I came down to see him it was horrible, I couldn''t stand to see him so sick, the first day I came in I realized that he couldn't talk or see or move, I didn't know how to tell him I loved him, I didn't know if he even knew I was there. Before I left I told him he was going to get better and that I would see him the next day, I went and saw him and then he passed away'

  • When I was 14 my grandma passed away, my whole life, my best friend. I saw her everyday, and called her every night to sing her favorite song to her for her to go to bed. She moved in with her sister and I never could see her or talk to her, just heard she was sick, and I got a phone call and it said she died. I stayed in my room for about a week to myself. Only left to use the restroom. It was the worst pain ever.
