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.

I am a person that could NEVER NOT cry about losing someone that I cared about and loved. I could not suppress that unique emotion for someone. When people die, it hurts. The writer says not to cry for them. However, to cry for them is the deep expression of the hurt, sadness of a loss, and to show they really meant something to you.

I truly believe in being strong. However, I love with a tremendous strength as well. I can truly appreciate that the writer of this poem says not to cry for them "because their pain is gone" and that they are "home now." However, that does not detract from the fact of missing the person's unique and special relevance to this world.

I lost my aunt (my second mom) when I was overseas in 1990. There was no closure. After all this time, I have still not been able to come to terms with it. I miss her every time I allow myself to think of her...or she creeps upon me when least expected. Those childhood memories I hold so dear still make me strong when things go terribly wrong. I wish she were here with us today!!

At the age of 18 I lost my girlfriend. She passed away in a bike accident along with her father. We had been in relationship for the past five and half years. I'm 21 today and her breath still lingers in my ears and inside myself I just scream without even uttering a word. I just wish to see her again...

I am so sorry for your loss. You have experienced too much pain at such a young age. I hope you will somehow find strength in the memories you treasure.

It's really sad, but be strong and let her go to rest in peace. Keep her memories in your heart.

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.
