If I Knew By Tommy Patrick Grief Poems

If I Knew
Memorial Poems

If I knew it would be the last time
that I’d see you fall asleep –
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I’d see you walk out the door –
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew, it would be the last time
that I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise –
I would video tape each action and word
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I could spare an extra minute –
To stop and say, ‘I Love You,’
instead of assuming you would know I do.

If I knew, it would be the last time
that I would be there to share your day –
Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more
so I can let this one just slip away.

For surely there’s always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight –
And we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say that, ‘I Love You’ –
And certainly there’s another chance
to say our, ‘Anything I can do?’.

But just in case I might be wrong
and today is all I get –
I’d like to say how much ‘I Love You’
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone
young or old alike –
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you’re waiting for tomorrow
why not do it today? –
For if tomorrow never comes
you’ll surely regret the day.

That you didn’t take the extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss –
And you were too busy to grant someone
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today
and whisper in their ear –
Tell them how much you love them
and that you’ll always hold them dear.

Take time to say ‘I’m sorry,’
‘Please forgive me,’
‘thank you,’ or ‘it’s okay.’ –
And if tomorrow never comes
you’ll have no regrets about today.

A Loving Tribute By Beth Kosticak

A Loving Tribute
Mom Memorial Poems

She is the light
in my children’s eyes –
She is the star
in the nighttime skies.

She is the rainbow
after a long rainy day –
She is the sunshine
lighting the way.

She is the warmth of the
bright summer sun –
She is the laughter
of kids having fun.

She is the melody
of my favorite tune –
She is the sweet smell
of roses in bloom.

She is the one
we all miss so much –
Her smile, her kindness
her loving touch.

She is the Angel
looking down from above –
Who is blessing us still
with happiness and love.

She wanted no sadness
to shed not a tear –
Just never forget
she will always be near.

Though she is gone
her memory imparts –
A feeling of love
in all of our hearts

Your time on earth is nearly through – By Suzanne Schultz

(Memorial Poems)

Your time on earth
is nearly through ..
Little left
for you to do.

I’ll give you just
a little while ..
To watch your children
laugh and smile.

To hear them laugh
and call your name ..
Watch them play
in the morning rain.

I’ll give you time
to say goodbye ..
To dry their tears
if they should cry.

Then I’ll come for you
and take your hand ..
I’ll guide you on to
the promised land.

Where you shall rein
with God on high ..
Just beyond
the morning sky.

Where you shall rest
until the time is right ..
Then guide your family
into the light.

Your mansion then
will be complete ..
As you walk with your family
down the golden street.

Forget Me Not By Linda Shelburn Reagan

Forget Me Not
(In Loving Memory Poems)

Forget me not
for I am there ..
In the beat of your heart
On the wing of your prayer.

Forgive me my parting
and leaving you thus ..
A joyous reunion
is waiting for us!

Continue to strive
toward your goal and be brave ..
Know that my love
didn’t stop at the grave.

My spirit is with you
through good times and bad ..
I share all the joys
and the sorrows you’ve had.

Feel my presence
within your next breath ..
And realize there’s
no distance in death.

Ask for my help
and I’ll answer your call ..
Reach for my hand
when you stumble and fall.

Run the last mile
with a smile on your face ..
My arms will be waiting
when you finish the race.

Always remember
my love is right there ..
In the beat of your heart
On the wing of your prayer.
