A Trip To Heaven

default © more by Annmarie Campbell

Published: November 2008

I took a trip to heaven
But only in my mind
I wanted to know what it's like
To leave all you love behind.
So I closed my eyes and started to see
Just how beautiful heaven can be.

I could see the pearly gates of white
and behind them was the most radiant light.
I saw an angel as she was passing by
so incredibly beautiful that a tear fell from my eye.
Everyone looked perfect and with the angels they did sing
There are no earthly words to describe the beauty of their wings.

As I sat on a bench in the most incredible garden
I asked God for all of my sins to be pardoned
I took one last look at all of the beauty around
And when I opened my eyes, it was peace that I found.

Still Missing You, Dad!

Worthy son has written the poem for his worthy father. The love and affection of the son for his father will remain and shine in the poem and never get faded. This is called true love between father and son, providing inspiration for the others. Loves arises in the heart of a man. Man goes but love never does. I fully admire the poet for his effort communicating his love for his father.

I lost my dad May 2009 and to this day I'm still grieving the loss of him. My dad was the glue to my family, the most amazing popa to my little girl AND the one person who believed in me regardless of what I did in life. His greatest joy in life was my daughter. To tell her popa went on to be with the angels killed me and it was the hardest thing in life I've ever had to do. I miss my dad so much that emotionally it has tore me up. I don't think I will ever get over this loss but I'm surely trying...I LOVE YOU DAD!

I never knew my real mother. But My first son died when at birth. My grandfather couldn't cope when grandma died so he gave up and died within a week.
My father died in the same year as my second son was born. It's like taking one away to give my second son chance to be born. When my nan died I took my young children at the time to give a surprise visit. She knew we were coming. It was like she was waiting to say goodbye. As she died a few days after the visit. I miss them all terribly.
I know my father and nan visit. By my dog who goes and sits on this empty chair that nobody likes sitting on as it's a rocker. I closed my eyes and saw him sitting on that chair. Yes you are bound to get times when life triggers a memory and a few tears. But one learns to find the strength to carry on with ones life.

I lost my best friend my husband of 56 years on 9-2-2013. Since then I have had a Birthday, Thanksgiving and now facing Christmas without him. I love and miss him so much. He was a loving faithful husband and father to our 4 son's and 2 grandsons. I know that the Lord is helping me through just as he has in the death of my only grandsons a 9 and 4 year old killed in car accident 2005. I never forget them. I know their in a better place
They all are celebrating Christmas with Jesus and some day I will be with them. Yes, my heart is heavy with losing them, but I will make it with the God's help. The prayers and the love of family and friends help so much.
Blessings to everyone.

Hi everyone, I also was touched by a traumatic death. It has been 8 years now and I tell you it is not easy. I just want to tell you that you need to keep your head up and look at the positive side of everything. Make sure you don't regret anything...keep talking to the one you have lost because I know that they are always around and listening. I lost my youngest sister in 2005..she passed in her room with no cause found. Tragic and pain is what I felt for 3 years. It does get better and you need to find yourself. Keep strong and one day we will all meet again.

On May 3, 2004 I lost my mother, my best friend, but to top that I lost my dad May 15, 2004 my best friend also that was the worse year of my life and it's still hard to let go. I still cry time to time I still know they are looking down from heaven watching over us. And I know God won't put no more on me and my brother then we can bear. I pray and ask God to help me get better in life with this broken heart. But I have got better with this cause my mom wasn't sick at all my dad was sick. No more pain... Can't seen to get pass the heartache.

My mother died when I was only 12 years old. Everyone said because I was so young I would probably drop out of school because I depended on my mom for everything. I proved everyone wrong. I now have my Degree in Early Childhood Education along with several other degrees. I have four (4) respectful young men. I have devoted my life to Christ. I will always believe in Me, I always relied on my mother for guidance. I still miss my mom so much, but I have the inspiration I need for me and my 4 boys.

At the moment my mother is not with me, she hasn't passed away but most of my life she has been in a women's prison which is really heart breaking! I don't have much memories of her, but my grandmother (mothers mum) had passed away October 15, which was really sad because that day was really special, it was my mothers birthday ! I couldn't believe it, my family was texting me at 4 in the morning saying she didn't have much time to live, and so I drove for 3 hours to get to the hospital but I was too late, If only I got to say goodbye to her one last time ! If you are wondering why I am talking about my grandmother instead of my Mother, it's because my grandmother was more like my mother she had brought me up since I were a newborn and because my nana talked about how strong she was and how all her beloved whanau would look after her through all her operations, Never in my life did I picture her lying in a coffin so young ....... I truly miss her, where she is buried now is where I would like to live because of all the memories she told me about :) I love you my beautiful gran !

I lost my mom Aug 2010 and to top that off I reunited with my first husband who was the only love of my life after being married to him for 8 yrs in the 70's and found our way back to each other in 2009 (remarried) to lose him to colon cancer Oct, 2011.
I miss them both so dearly and feel as though my heart has broken into little pieces and can't seem to put the puzzle back together.
I too, keep the faith that the sun will shine again some day?
It is harder to breathe with some days being harder to handle than others.
I know I have been blessed!!!
#1- Making it to this point in this unpredictable world we live in.
#2- To be able to experience True Love as well.

I just question Why so much all at once?
I too want them back Literally!!!

I lost my mama on 03/05/2012 and I just don't know how many more pieces could there be left of my heart to be broken....my grief is unbearable and overwhelming and non-stop.....so hard that I find it hard to take a breath.... I loved her so much. Just a smell or anything triggers the tears she's so precious to me. God has given me the strength but I feel like a lost wondering soul without her, and I know she would not like me acting like this because I've always been the cheer spreader and the positive power. I want my mama back literally!!!!

These are truly amazing poems that I read. I just lost my mother a few days ago and I'm having a hard time. Though everyone says the pain goes away, I don't understand how that could be. Because this is truly breaking my heart. Though there were good times I can't remember them at all. My life has crumbled.
