About the Poem

I recently lost a woman that raised me, through actions and her loving guidance, from birth. She showed me how to love others, consider their feelings, and to always have pride in myself and know that I am loved.

I will miss her greatly, but God needed another angel, and she already has the experience from her years here - guiding and loving all, from her closest family to a person she might be waiting in line with at the grocery store.

Everything I do, everything I accomplish, I do with her in my mind and in my heart.


In Loving Memory of Marie 1928-2000

Never Alone

I feel you in the morning
When at first I awake
Your thought is with me
With each decision I make

You'd been around forever
Since the first breath I took
Now I have to go on alone
But for love, I need not look

Cause by what you bestowed
In our short time together
Will last in my heart
Forever and ever

Although you've left
And now walk above
I'm never alone
I'm wrapped in your love

Enjoy now your long waited reward
Feel peace that your love continues on
What was taught to me, will be taught to mine
Cause you live on in me even after you've gone

death is a really bad thing but see no one can really do anything about it cause like always god has plans for us when we die. i had someone really close to me but see i also regret not seeing them daily and she died and i thought that i couldn't deal with it but i also got over it and went on with life even though i think about her all the time i still go on with life. death is a painful thing to deal with i would i know

Why you ask because I under stand what it is like to lose someone. About 6 years ago I lost my dad but my kids lost something more they lost agrandpa and a friend. But life must go on for our loved ones for them it is because life goes on and it is because family is happy and because you know they are in a better palce. You should never think it was your farlt because they still exsit in your haret and love you andall always right there to partic you! YOU ARE NEVER ALONE!
