Spiritual Poem about Death

I wrote this when my step-father passed away from a terminal form of cancer. I wrote it to comfort my mother and to reassure her that one day we will all be together again. It is my hope that this will in some way comfort others who may be experiencing the same grief and feeling of loss. I tried to word it in a way that anyone experiencing the grief of a loved one, not necessarily due to cancer, may find some comfort in the words. Thank you, God, for your promises!

Do Not Cry For Me


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2016 with permission of the Author.

Do not cry for me, my love.
My heart is still with you.

Keep your eyes on God above.
This pain He'll see you through.

For I am with our Father now,
In His home up above.

I am whole and at peace
And surrounded by His love.

You, too, He'll call home one day
To His mansion in the sky.

And together we will be forever
To praise Him, side by side.
