Missing You More And More

Missing You More And More

(Grief Poems – Loss Of A Child)

There’s nothing new that I can say
that I haven’t said before –
In all the years since you left us
I’ve missed you more and more.

I’ve watched your childhood friends
grow up and some have moved away –
But in my heart your sweet memories
will forever stay.

I think of all the things you’ve missed
like marriage, jobs and so –
And I wonder what you’d be like now
if you didn’t have to go.

But surely your perspective
is different from ours here –
For you know all of Heaven’s joy
and you’re with our Lord so dear.

It’s only for ourselves we mourn
for we miss you in many ways –
But with your help, we will be brave
as we live throughout our days.

And someday when our journey’s done
we’ll see your smile once more –
And hold you in our arms again
when we meet at Heaven’s door.
