    Poem Encouraging Others To Make The Most Of Each Day

    in Meaningful Poems

    If I were to leave this world today, I'd want to be remembered, it's true,
    for going that extra mile just to show my love for you.
    I'd want for you to be proud of me and know I always tried.
    When you hurt, I did, too; your tears I also cried.

    Beautiful poem. It inspires me a lot with Einstein's words, "Try not to be a success but of value." It goes into my inner core and resonates a deep feeling in me, to live a purposeful life....

    I think angels are a very interesting topic. While I believe what the bible says about them, I also think many of us come up with our own definitions. Angels become our idea of a kind person....

It will get better, I promise you, and there will come a day when you remember moments from your childhood with smiles and joy. I thank God every day for my mother even though she has crossed over. I didn't think I could survive without her, but I have. I am comforted by knowing the Lord and standing firm on his promise that we will be together again and throughout eternity. I wrote and read this poem to my mother as she lay dying, and at that moment I thought I would die right with her. I'm so happy so many have found comfort in these lines; it also keeps her memory alive. That's how souls live on because someone remembers them and takes them along. May God Bless you.

Your mother is all around you. Her spirit lives on; she is not dead. Her earthly body is gone, but the spirit that made her who she was is alive and watching over you forever. Not one day goes by that she doesn't whisper, "I love you." When I wrote this poem, the Lord gave me these words. I hope you know that Jesus sees your pain and wants you to trust in him as the days, months, and years pass while you are on this earth. You have a special purpose for being here. There is unfinished work you need to do, and then you will be reunited with your precious mother. I want you to know you are in my prayers. May God's love and light comfort you always. God Bless.

Your mom is all around you. Her body left this world, but her spirit lives on in you. You are never alone. I feel my mom with me every day. Often I see signs but only when I'm not looking for them. I know the hurt you are feeling all too well. My mom was my best friend. I could tell her everything, and she never judged me. I miss that so much. I still talk to her every day in hopes she can hear me. I believe in Heaven, and I know I will see her again. Only God could have created a woman as wonderful as she was. I hope you know the Lord and find your strength through prayer. Someone is praying for you. God Bless.

This is so beautiful. Mothers are the foundation of who we are. The souls that God offered us to be born within. How blessed you are to still have your mom.
