Don't Cry For Me

©

Published: September 2015

Don't cry for me,
I will be okay.
Heaven is my home now,
and this is where I'll stay.
Don't cry for me,
I'm where I belong.
I want you to be happy
and try to stay strong.
Don't cry for me,
It was just my time.
But I will see you someday
on the other side.
Don't cry for me,
I am not alone.
The angels are with me
to welcome me home.
Don't cry for me,
for I have no fear.
All my pain is gone,
and Jesus took my tears.
Don't cry for me,
this is not the end.
I'll be waiting here for you,
when we meet again.

My auntie died a day after Christmas on the 26 and I remember when I was at the mall with my friends, I came home and my momma told us. I tried not to cry but when you lose someone you really love, that was very close to you, it really hurts.

The loss of someone so young is the most devastating loss, in my mind. This poem provides hope and perhaps some sense of understanding to those suffering from the pain of losing someone much too soon.
