    Poems by Joel McKeown

  • Blurred Vision

    • Published: January 2009

    in Loss Poems

    As I watch the horizon blur, I wipe you from my eye
    I've seen you here before, lately you've stayed close by
    The lady that I know as mom has returned to the Lord's dust
    Creating a whole no one can fill, but in the Lord I trust...

    I lost my father November 23, 2014. I try remembering him all that I can, but I never really knew him. We used to go fishing and wait for the sun to set, no words were ever said. Our hearts...

  • My Mother's Mother

    • Published: January 2009

    in Loss Poems

    I sat there and watched her, helplessly fighting for every breath.
    The doctor said she would die today, so all of the family left.
    My grandfather cried and said I cannot leave your side.
    Although I do not want to see you go, I have to stay to say goodbye.

    Loved this poem. It's the ones that have the most emotion that are the best. When presented this way, death can almost seem like a beautiful transformation, not a depressing time in life....

    So I Won't Feel This Pain Again

    in Loss Poems

    Thank you my friend for all you have done for me.
    You help me to forget my past, you help me go to sleep.
    You were the one who has watched me through it all.
    Through the death of my closest friend you didn't let me fall....

    Another day has come and gone
    Since the day you left us all alone

    Another day has come and gone

  • Molded By My Pain

    • Published: May 2010

    in Loss Poems

    A pain so deep inside of me that no one will ever see,
    I take the pain and lock it up and throw away the key.
    Because if I take this pain out of the bottle for you to see,
    You would not know the one you know because I'm not even me....

Move to the town your daughter lives in. She should be your number one priority.
