Happiness Waiting for You
(In Loving Memory Poems)
There is light at the end of the tunnel
There is calm at the end of the storm ..
There is rest at the end of the journey
and a hearth that is welcome and warm.
There’s a star on the top of the mountain
you can touch when the last crag is scaled ..
There’s a certain reward for the faithful
at the point where they think they have failed.
There’s a spring at the end of the winter
and behind the black cloud it is blue ..
There’s a song at the heart of your sorrow
and happiness waiting for you.
Do you make them laugh in Heaven
does your smile bring them good cheer?
Do you make the sun shine brighter
like you did when you were here?
The very mention of your name
the memories of your smile ..
The little things you said and did
are with us all the while.
You meant so very much to us
there’s nothing left to say ..
Except that without you here
there is no perfect day.
For no-one knows the heartache
that lies behind our smiles ..
No-one knows how many times
we have broken down and cried.
We want to tell you something
so there won’t be any doubt ..
You’re so wonderful to think of
but so hard to be without.
We hold you close within our hearts
and there you shall remain ..
To walk with us throughout our lives
until we meet again.
