In Loving Memory Poems | Why? – By Bea Brunton

(In Loving Memory Poems)

Perhaps one day we’ll understand
Why God decided to take your hand.
And lead you into Heaven above
Surrounded by His tender love.

Never does a day pass by
That we don’t ask the question”Why?”
Why did God take our precious son?
Was it something we had done?

We hope to face the Lord one day
And ask Him why you couldn’t stay.
On earth with those who loved you so
Those who wanted to see you grow.

We mourn for the things that will not be
For the things with you, we’ll never see.
The fun and games we’ll never share
For special times when you won’t be there.

No more to see your smiling face
Nothing will ever take your place.
In our hearts you will always stay
While we await that “One Sweet Day.”

That “One Sweet Day” in Heaven above
Where we will meet and affirm our love.
Once more our arms will hold you tight
As in God’s presence we’ll reunite.

Until that day, we must live our lives
Ensuring each memory of you survives.
And feel your presence, ever near
Each time we shed a painful tear.

“See you in Heaven,” you’ll hear us say
As you watch over us every day.
Then when our lives on earth are done
We know you’ll be the one to come.

You’ll take us gently by the hand
And lead us to God’s Heavenly land.
Where all together we will be
Our, once more, happy family.
