This is a very beautiful poem . I can relate to it because it's exactly how I felt when my grandmother died a few days ago.
Brittany
This was a beautiful poem. I lost my sister to cancer 2 years ago, and there is not a moment go by that I don't think of her. I never seen her cry when she was ill. Whenever I read this poem it not only makes me remember the sad, painful times but it lets me know that God is taking care of my baby sister now.
April
I loved your poem. I too felt this way when I lost my mother to lung cancer 5 years ago. This poem is so deeply heartfelt and describes the challenge that we, the living, must accomplish when someone near and dear to us is lying in front of us slowly crossing to the hands of God. Poetry like this is the greatest. keep up the good work!

gisela
As I am watching my best friend caring for her dying mother, knowing the pain she is feeling, I was searching for something which could put her pain into words. And perhaps in a very small way help her cope. This poem was just what I was looking for. Thank you.
megan

Cloud
This was a touching poem to me, who also lost someone I loved, though under different circumstances. It gave me hope and a positive outlook on what has been, and I just hope that this gets publicized better so that it can help bring peace to many other troubled hearts. You have put into words what we all feel in our hearts and that is a gift that you have and have shared with us.

I Love This Poem. It was So Touching I showed it to some of my closest friends! All we did was cry! We felt so bad of all the times we were complaning about our problems and I read this and. WOW!
Diana
As I read this peom it brings back to the last day with my bestfriend, she had called to see if I could come over by myself and if my mother inlaw could watch my two boys. We laid together in her bed two days before she past as if she knew it was her time to go and for us to have that one last day together just the two of us. she seen me and my boys maybe five days earlier and had a great day with all tree of us, but I truly believe she knew it was her time to go and her body couldn't take no more so she asked for me to come alone. Like your poem said she didn't want me to cry or be upset and I held out for as long as I could but by the end of the night I couldn't hold it in plus had a felling that this was going to be our last time together. I call her house two days later to see how she was doing and she pasted away during the night. It has been two years and I still break down as if it was yesturday. I have a health condition myself and my boys say she is my angel and if I say were is Mary they will both say in our hearts. Your poems said says everything my mind and heart is thinking and I think it's amazing. Thank You Randall

derek
GREAT POEM i really like that part that says that he swore he would never cry then at the end he was crying AWESOME POEM
Meg
That poem was soo sad but, it always brought back memories that in a way made me smile. My grandpa was very sick but he suffered through it slowly. He was such a happy, funny, and outgoing man, that nobody wanted to ever cry or be down around him. We were always by his side and each time we would go to see him, we just watched him fade away. This poem just kind of reminds me that it's okay for him. Like he's in heaven being the same happy man with God.
davo

Judy
Just beautiful! However I did not see you in my mothers room six weeks ago when she died, but you could have been as the circumstances were the same. I was the oldest child, strong I had to be, no tears, it was expected of me. I held her hand over her heart as I felt it race, and suddenly there was stillness as she went to be with her friend. Her words to me as a child, I will never forget " Pray often, Never wait for tradgies to strike first". By reading your poem during these wee hours of the morning, I am finialy able to release. Thank you for writing it.

kate
This really hits home. I lost my mom in April o3. There are so many things that I don't remember from the hospital to the wake & so on. Things happen for a reason and I just happen to stumble across this site. I could go on but, in the pass few weeks I've been having flash backs and why now it's almost 2 yrs. later. When reading this it was like a flood of memories and as much as I don't want to remember them & just leave things as they are I have alot of unfinished emotional crap to take care of. My mom is w/ her best friend who happens to be your mom's bestfriend too. Thank you for sharing it truly helped me i'm sure my therapist thanks you as well. Happy Easter! Kate
April
I just believe that all those words that she said about god was true. Right now I think that god is my closets friend. I go to church every Sunday and I truley believe in him alot.

This poem touched my heart in a way I cannot fully exlain. My mother was diagnosed with cancer last year and although at the moment she is still with us I could totally relate to how this writer was feeling because it is exactly what I feel each time I have to leave my mother. This poem is very beautiful.

Jon
"For whom the soul belongs. " I created this quote when talking of death in reference to faith and God. I found your expression extremely beautiful and sympathetic. I think anyone who has dealt with the deity of death can relate to your words. For that I applaud you. I found myself reliving a moment I shall not forget anytime in the near future. Please keep sharing your works. Amidst the pen of creation, Jon Mesa, AZ
Jackie
This poem touched me so much . its exactely what happened when I lost my father to cancer in May 1998 . Not a day goes by when hes not in my thoughts, I miss him so much . People say that time is a great healer . would someone please tell my heart that.
Breenna
this is a great poem. it brought tears to my eyes. When my great grandmother died 5 years ago i felt the same way as you. she had never seen my eyes wet with tears. but i couldnt hold them no longer and i just wept for days. she died right in front of my eyes while holding my hand for comfort. i still cry till this day.

The peom makes me cry but i tried to convince myself not to cry because I know everything is going to be o. k. as long as I believe in G. O. D and know he will see me through my trials and tribulations.
Samoati S.
I was in search for a poem to read at our club, on the loss of one of our dear friends. I found this one. I decided to keep it for my self. I was so touched by this poem I remember when the time came to my mother 7 years ago. I couldn't express my feeling but cried. Had i known this poem that time, with the permission of the writer I would have recited it on the last day, during the funeral of my beloved mother. Still I will print out this one and give it to the son of our dear late friend Inge.
MARY
THIS POEM REALLY REMINDS ME OF MY FATHER WHO PASSED AWAY IN 1996,HE COULDN'T TALK HE WAS JUST SLEEPING AWAY,BUT HE WAITED UNTIL I ARRIVED FROM FLA. TO ROCHESTER,NY. AND VISITED HIM ONCE,I JUST RUBBED HIS FOREHEAD AND SAID IT WAS ALRIGHT. HE PASSED AWAY THAT SAME NIGHT,THAT'S HOW THIS POEM TOUCHED ME. THANKS FOR SHARING.
Emily
Very awesome poem. I read it for a school project. I got to share with people about how if a person knows Jesus as their Savior, they can have joy and hope in death. Eternal life is better than any life we can have here, and it sounds like your mom understood that. Being with Jesus is the best thing that can happen to a person!
Ramona

Casey
I really loved your poem. I can relate to it. It really sucks to lose someone that you are really close to. I know how you feel. Almost 2 years ago, I had lost my Grandpa to cancer. We were really close. I was his little angel. I am still not over his death and I don't really think that I will ever be. I miss him so much. He was like a father to me. I keep telling myself that he is going to come back but I know that he can't. Deep down he is still with me.

Thank you. im sure it was hard for you to write, you did an excellent job. no one could have captured any of these emotions as well as you did.
Jessica
I read this poem at my grandmas funeral and every word from that peom happened to me and her that night when she died. It's like it all relates to me! I'm hoping she was looking down at me from heaven while I was reading it and hoping that she knew how bad her death hurt me but just as long as she knew that I love her and I always will!I love you grandma!Whoever wrote this poem. thanks a lot from the bottom of my heart!
Cat

I work for a nursing home and we have lost several residents this month. One was very dear to me. When I seen this poem it reminded me of the day that I sat with this person telling her good bye and knowing that I would never see her again. This is good.

Randall. Your poem touched my heart. I lost my Mother to a long, painful death from bone cancer. My heart and my prayers go out to you. God is my best friend, and he's with me every hour, comforting me. I pray he stays with you and send his angels to encamp around you.

My grandfather was a wonderful man and his death has affected the whole family. He has been gone for 3 years now and the impact of his death still has its toll on the whole family. We never talk about him, because it is too painful. I really would like to thank you for sharing this poem. I feel like you were saying what I was thinking. You have a talent and I would really like to read more of your work. Take Care and God Bless.

Last year my nanny past away and still to this day it seems like yesterday. For so long i refused to beleive she was dying i was to scared for i had never lost anyone especially not my best friend! As i stood by her side waiting for her to go as i wiped away her last tear crying begging her not to go the lord took my nanny to a much better place therefore i can not be selfish for she is in no more pain. I really enjoyed your poem it made me realize i am not the only one who hurts this way day after day. It made me grateful because I know how much she loved the lord and I know he is my nanny's best friend.

I love how you captured the struggle both you and your mother faced while you also shared the joy that your mother had in knowing she would be with her best friend. Your mother taught you a valuable lesson about dealing with suffering and you've let us all experience how difficult it is to let go of one we love so much. I went through exactly the same thing with my mother Nov. '99. Thanks for sharing and helping with the healing.

It's not too often a poem can strike my emotions so, but this one did. I can honestly say that once I was through reading this work, I shed a few tears. I love poems that can get me to react -- because there's so little that do.

Truly,the poem is touching my heart since I share the same feelings of being alone after my wife's death and my father's last year. The poem is delicate and expressive although my native tongue is Arabic.
