My Aunt


Published: December 2007

I thought I saw her face today
In the sparkle of the morning sun.
And then I heard the angel say,
"Her work on earth is done."

I thought I heard her voice today
Then laugh her hearty laugh.
And then I heard the angel say,
"There's peace little one at last."

I thought I felt her touch today
In the breeze that rustled by.
And then I heard the angel say,
"The spirit never dies."

I thought that she had left me
For the stars so far above.
And then I heard the angel say,
"She left you with her love."

I thought that I would miss her
And never find my way.
And then I heard the angel say,
"She's with you every day."

Reading your poem gave me relief. My lovely aunt passed away from a battle against MS. The pain collapses any words I could write here. I am sure she is better now and free from her painful body. Rest in peace, Dolores.

I'm also dealing with the death of my aunt. Aunty, I really miss you a lot. I couldn't sleep properly. I love you more than my mom, and I can't forget all the times I spent with you.

I lost my aunt this year, and I thought I would never be anything, but today I am standing. I know my aunt is looking down at me saying, "I'm proud of you girl." So for anybody who lost any of their family members, just know they're looking down and saying that's my girl or she inspired me so much and I'm so glad I met my nieces or nephews...

My Aunt lost her battle with cancer this past weekend. I am going to miss her so much. It's going to be hard just thinking about the time we could've had to spend together. Growing up I didn't get the chance to spend with my family like I would've liked to. I just hope my aunt knows that even though I didn't get to spend a lot of time with her before her passing that I love her and always will. Thanks for the poem it really touched my heart.

Thank you for this poem. I searched and searched to find a great poem to remind me of my aunt. She was killed on 8/19/11 by her husband and my heart is so broken. I know that she is in a better place. I love you Aunt Joan!!!

My Aunt Mary died on my birthday Sept 6, 2009. She had liver cancer. She was not able to understand why she was sick, because she was blind and retarded. She had a mind of a child. I cared for her after my grandmother passed away in 81. She was more like a sister than a Aunt. I miss her everyday but I know I will see her again soon.

I loved this poem... My aunt Linda was my best friend and died in my arms in front of our entire family during Christmas of 2007... Yes it's 2010 and I don't know if I'll ever really get over it. People say you never really get over someone like Aunt Linda, you have to accept it on some level though.
I am getting married 2.10.11 and am struggling just as much as always because my best friend can't be there.... I am using this poem to remember her in my wedding programs.
RIP AUNT LINDA, you'll never be forgotten.

To My Beloved Uncle
Even though I was to young to realize want you done for me and how much you loved me I had that feeling in side of me as a little girl.....
Now that I'm getting older those flash back come often and still remembering what you use to tell me... I thank you for those laugh and tears we shared and I hope that everyday and night you are watching over me...
