Grief Poem

Poem About Grief Over Losing Someone Very Close

This poem is something I wrote for my mom. My father, her husband, died of brain cancer this year, and it's been very hard for all of us, but I just thought I would write something to maybe give her some hope.

A Call From Heaven

Published by Family Friend Poems November 2018 with permission of the Author.

I lie awake long into the night,
Hoping that maybe you just might
Give me a call to say you're okay
And let me know you made it through the day.

I would give everything that I have
To make you feel not so sad.
I know the pain is sometimes too great,
But the love was something you can never mistake.

I long for the day when I see you again.
Then we can talk about where all we've been.
We can think about all the times we had,
How we've missed each other ever so bad.

I feel like I've been cheated and robbed so blind.
God took you away when I thought you were mine.
Now I'm stuck here and feel so alone
As I sit and wait right beside the phone.

You gave me a life and everything I have.
I couldn't say no, even when I was mad.
You gave me my children that I hold so dear.
You took away everything that I ever feared.

As the hurt seems to fade but the memories are bright,
Maybe I'll see you in a dream tonight.
That's all I can hope for until the day
When were together in heaven for an eternity.
