Eternal Bliss
Author: Shan


Just one minute more,
one second,
one is all I need,
Just to say I love you dad,
One more time before you leave,
It's so hard to say goodbye,
I feel so pulled apart inside,
But I know that you are with me,
In my heart for all of time,
Please let those there to greet you know,
They too are loved and missed,
May you all rest together
In God's eternal bliss

If I'm not mistaken

I forgot, but I think the tribute in your "Gone But Not Forgotten" poem is to the same loved one.

It's sad to lose someone, because you think they're gonna keep on living forever. When a preacher I knew passed away, I was in shock. It was very sudden.

Understand your sentiments. Great dedication.

your poem

Hi Shan, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I think we all wish we had that few moments more to say we loved them.. I think they can still hear us just fine.. Hang in there girl.. He will live on in your heart forever....

You said in your last comment this poem came out like it was tears.. Did you look at the shape of this poem. That was what I noticed about it.. Looks like a teardrop.... This poem is a wonderful tribute of your love..
