Tears Fall From My Eyes

Published by Family Friend Poems August 2013 with permission of the Author.

As tears roll down my face,
I know you're in a better place.
I close my eyes to see your face,
suddenly I feel a warm embrace.
With a smile so wide,
it brings tears to my eyes.
I try so hard not to cry;
all of my pain I cannot hide.
You always knew just what to say
to anyone having a bad day.
I don't know if I will ever understand,
but it must be part of God's plan.
As I look up toward the blue sky,
I imagine you spreading your wings to fly.
Be sure to give your Mom a sign
so she knows you are in Heaven
and everything is fine.
Tell everyone there I send my love
to all of the angels up above.
As the tears roll down my face,
I know you are in a better place.

We recently lost our son in a tragic accident. He had overcome so much and was just where he wanted to be in life. He smiled so much in the last few months. We knew he was happy. He is in a better place now...our angel whom we will see again one day.

I lost my younger brother 4 years ago to cancer. He went so fast, and I did not realize just how sick he was until he was gone and then it was too late to tell how I really felt. I loved my brother and could never tell him how I felt.

Just lost my son Sunday. Today is his funeral. I don't know how I will do this. This is a beautiful poem.

Made too many tears roll down my cheeks. I used to cry easily, then did some work with a very good psychologist. Since then I don't cry so readily. But this poem hit me hard but crying sometimes brings relief.

I just love this poem so much I can't help to read it over and over again. It really explained me so much in my life I have lost so many close people to me in the past year.
