God Took Another Angel Home

default ©

Published: September 2009

You laid there in that hospital
bed; you tried so hard to hold on.

God was calling you home. He needed
another angel to help pour out the rain.

Tears have fallen, hearts where shattered,
but it was time for you to fly home.

Your loved ones came to say their last goodbyes,
to tell you they loved you, and that you will be forever missed.

As your heartbeat stopped, and your eyes slowly closed,
God took another angel home.

This poem is dedicated to my Aunt Jody. She took her last breath today with all of her loved ones surrounding her. She was a courageous woman that lost her battle to cancer at the age of 61. She would always tell me that she loved me to the moon and back and that I was her favorite niece. I would always remind her that I was her only niece and that I loved her more. She will forever be in my heart.

This poem is soo powerful as many of us relate to it. My aunt died aged 64 after by-pass heart surgery. I cried every time I left hospital but was strong with her and family. She was my godmother and friend and her passing was shock and I still miss her daily. She now gone 3 months and today is her Birthday. I love you and miss you aunty Eileen. ...xxxx

This is amazing poem and I can relate soooo much. When I was 10 my aunt died and she and I were very close but when she passed away I had nobody to truly talk to.... the only thing I have left was a box with some of her favorite things that she loved.. <3

my auntie Janice was the kind of person that... you would be crazy about! Even she was 62 she looked about 40! She was the last one of her family. and she told me that one day she would be with her parents and her sisters and brothers. On Oct 28, 2011 her body was letting down. and God saw her pain and called her home. and I know that she is at peace...sleep on auntie and get your rest.

This touched me deeply. I lost my brother to abuse when I was only 7. He died way before his time at the age of 9. I think of him every day watching over me and my daughter, and can sense him when times are hard, and when I'm missing him the most.

This reached right into my heart. I can really relate to this as my Aunty died after a good fight with cancer. We were really close and there's part of me missing, a part of me that she took with her.

Gina, my exact story. My mother was my everything and she fought the good fight. She wouldn't have left us if she had anything to say about it. God called her home and just like you Gina half of me went with her. She's been gone 6 months this week and I still don't know how to go on. Prayer.

Chelsea, that exact thing just happened this past weekend. My nana was in the hospital and all of her grandchildren and children were flying in to see her and say goodbye to her one last time. And the last person got there and seconds later she took her last breath.
