Letting Go – Words of Sympathy

Letting go of everything
Everything I knew
Surrendering for once and all
Is just too hard to do

No matter what’s been said and done
The pain you put me through
I still remember something else
And can’t let go of you

I will always hang on
I will continue
For all of eternity
Forever loving you

Though time may pass I find myself
Trapped within the past
Left behind in what once was
And all we had amassed

Wondering where my love went
How you left so fast
If only I could have known
It would never last

I will always hang on
I will continue
For all of eternity
Forever loving you

Lingering thoughts of you remain
And so I still grieve
Hidden pain beneath the mask
For none to perceive

Moving forward is so hard
When I still believe
It wasn’t time for us to end
Too soon for you to leave

I will always hang on
I will continue
For all of eternity
Forever loving you

I Still Miss You – Words of Sympathy

It’s been some time, since you’ve been gone
I thought by now, I would be strong
I think of you, and shed my tears
I wonder who, will still my fears.

Your memories remain, inside my heart
My soul it seems, to be torn apart
You told me secrets, I hold so dear
I only wish, you would be near.

I still miss and love you, can’t you see
I wish to hold, and talk with thee
So many things, I could not say
And now you’ve gone, so far away.

You taught me to, in God believe
You said he would always, take care of me
So take my hand, and guide me there
And save a place, one day to share.

I love you Mom & Dad
(by Damaris Calderon)

My Memories – Words of Sympathy

It seems as if yesterday
you held out your hand
for a walk in the park
a play in the sand
I know it was just last night
I tucked you in bed
saying our prayers
with a kiss on the head
Sometimes I wonder why you had to go
But the answer to this I already know
So much suffering just can’t go on
I finally had realized what I knew all along
I had so much to say
I Love You’s to tell
I started to slip
and I almost fell
But I kept on moving
one day at a time
My memories kept going
on and on I’m my mind
The day you were born
Your first big girl bike
I know you put these there
for me to keep in sight
I know you are with me
each hour and minute
I feel you around me
There seems to be no limit
So my darling daughter
I want you to know
I miss you and Thank You
for helping me let you go

To All Parents – Words of Sympathy

“I’ll lend you for a little time a child of mine,” He said.
“For you to love the while he lives and mourn when he is dead,
“It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three,
“But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?

“He’ll bring his charms to gladden you, but should his stay be brief,
“You’ll have his lovely memories, as solace for your grief,
“I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return,
“But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.

“I’ve looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true,
“And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes I have selected you.
“Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
“Nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again?

I fancied that I heard them say: “Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
“For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we’ll run.
We’ll shelter him with tenderness; we’ll love him while we may,
And for happiness we’ve known forever grateful stay.

“But should the angels call for him much sooner than we’d planned,
“We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.”
(by Edgar Guest)

Are You There? – Words of Sympathy

Misty breeze wraps about my shoulders, thinly clad.
I shiver not, despite the coolness on my skin.
Comfort, I now feel.
Is it you my precious Angel?

Are you there? I cannot hear your quiet voice,
But bird song fills the air
From high treetops to grassy marsh.
I wonder – is it you, Dear? Are you there?

The roses in your garden bloom large,
And varied in hue from crimson deep, to barely pink.
I cup the velvet bud, its fragrance soothes a troubled mind.
This must be you, my little girl. Are you there?

Are you the fiery autumn maples,
Or the star-like flakes of snow?
Are you the sparkle in the water of the lake that we both loved,
Or, perhaps, the warmth I feel in the sand beneath my toes?

Though your quiet voice I cannot hear,
Nor can I see again your sparkling eyes,
Or feel your dainty hand laid gently on my own,
You are here.

For memory’s book will never close –
Each lovely sound, or sight, or scent,
Another page from special times that we have shared.
Oh, yes! You are here child – everywhere!
( by Diane Robertson)

Inner Tempest Stilled – Words of Sympathy

Sometimes I sense a little flutter.
Like a shadow swiftly slipping by.
Or I hear a silent, gentle murmur.
Like a soft whisper from out the sky.

Sometimes… I hear you call my name,
Or clearly see your face before me.
And I feel that you are with me still.
Then peacefully… I come to know

As I am thinking happy thoughts of you
You, my son, are thinking of me too.
Loving memories fill my aching heart.
As dreaming dreams of what could be.

Or might have been, if you were here.
Until the piercing pain of losing you
Comes tumbling down on trembling fear.
And clearly once again I hear you say,

“But Mom…What if I had never been.
You could not then in LOVE remember me.”
(by Beenie Legato)

Death of a Child – Words of Sympathy

Sorry I didn’t get to stay.
To laugh and run and play.
To be there by your side.
I’m sorry that I had to die.

God sent me down to be with you,
to make your loving heart anew.
To help you look up and see
Both God and little me.

Mommy, I wish I could stay.
Just like I heard you pray.
But, all the angels did cry
when they told little me goodbye.

God didn’t take me cause He’s mad.
He didn’t send me to make you sad.
But to give us both a chance to be
a love so precious .. don’t you see?

Up here no trouble do I see
and the pretty angels sing to me.
The streets of gold is where I play
you’ll come here too, mommy, someday.

Until the day you join me here,
I’ll love you mommy, dear.
Each breeze you feel and see,
brings love and a kiss from me.
( by Sandy Eakle)

When I Get To Heaven – Words of Sympathy

At last I reach my final home
The gates swing open wide
I get a glimpse of glory
I can’t wait to get inside.

An angel beckons to me
I hurry up to him
He opens up a golden book
And lets me look within.

I see my name is written
On the page that he turns to
He says you finally made it
I’ve been waiting here for you.

He points in one direction
And tells me “go that way”
So I start my tour of heaven
The place I get to stay.

I see the many mansions
And walk the streets of gold
And hear the angels praising God
Just like I had been told.

And then I spot my loved ones
They’ve been here many years
We hug and kiss each other
All smiles, there are no tears.

I look around for Jesus
I know He’ll soon appear
I want to kneel and praise Him
He’s the reason I am here.

He took upon Himself my sins
He paid the price for me
And by His victory over death
He finally set me free.

Free from all my worldly sins
And the evil Satan sent
Jesus came into my heart
Because I did repent.

I’ll finally get to thank Him
When I bow before His throne
For all the times He carried me
When I couldn’t walk alone.

I’ll dwell with Him in heaven
With no sorrow, tears or pain
This was His promise to me
When to this earth He came.

There are many mansions up here
There’s room for all of you
So to join us all in heaven
I’ll tell you what to do.

Accept Jesus as your Savior
He will wash your sins away
He’s waiting here to greet you
When you join us here one day.
(by Emily McAdams)

The Night The Angels Took You – Words of Sympathy

The night the angels took you
to live with them above-
the world we live in down below
lost someone truly loved.
I know we were extremely blessed
when home with mom you came-
the first thing that we learned of you
‘Buster’ was your name.
Rowdy and rough, you made us laugh
and sometimes made us cry-
you were the youngest of us all
giving anything a try.
Through the years you grew into
the name that you were given-
a name that surely without doubt
came from the wings of heaven.
We were the same, you and I
from looks to our expressions-
we did our share causing mom and dad
day-to-day frustration.
Two black sheep, among the five
we were so much the same-
I laid the path with mom and dad
and then along you came.
You lived your life the way you chose
on the edge, some people said-
No matter where you were or what you did
you chose the life you led.
Our family and friends were there
as we wept and cried-
I know God was there watching too
with the angels by his side.
Some would say that can’t be so
some say it isn’t true-
but I know God was watching
the night the angels took you.
