About the Poem

This poem is for anyone who has ever lost a loved one. If your loved one could talk, this is what they would say to you. I hope you find peace and comfort here.

I Want You To Know

A brief moment of darkness
was all that I knew,
before Heaven's Gate
came into my view.

Loved ones and friends
I had missed for many years,
welcomed me with open arms
and many happy tears.

All the hurt, fear and pain
that I have ever known,
is gone from my life,
I am finally home.

I gazed upon the Lord's
sweet smiling face,
and for the first time in my life
I knew and felt His grace.

I know that you miss me,
but please dry your eyes.
I will always be watching and loving you
from my home in the sky.

A cool breeze on your face,
a touch of light rain,
I will send as a reminder
that we will be reunited again.

Life on earth is but one
brief moment in time,
I am finally home,
Eternity is mine.

I am burying my 18 year old brother in law this weekend. He was drinking and ran a red light. He hit a car full of girls and wrapped his car around a pole. Only one girl survived. Four died. This poem brought peace to my heart after hurting so much for my sister who has to raise their baby by herself. My sister is only 19 and shouldn't have to pick out what is he is going to be buried in. He will never see his only son turn one and will miss his first Father's Day. We know he made a mistake and killed other innocents, but this driver had a family too. And his family loves and misses him.

I just lost my mother on Dec. 17 2004, I deeply miss her even though she has been gone for a short time. Her heart was so very tired. This poem touch me in a way that is indescribable. This poem fits my mother perfectly. I can hardly wait to meet her in Heaven.
Julia
Angela, I lost my "Mama" to Sinus cancer on Nov 19, 2004. She lived and died a Christian: I know Jesus came and took her out of her pain and suffering to live Eternal Life in Heaven. If she could have written something to comfort me after her passing she would have. I have searched for something to read to help my grief. Your Poem is the only thing I have found that sounds just like what she would say to be today. May God Bless you Angela! This poem is the only comfort I have found. Thank you so much. Julia

This poem is amazing. I lost one of my good friends July 1, 2004 and also my uncle just last month on October 16, 2004. It's been real tough considering the short time span between them. Reading this poem comforted me though because it's something that i know both of them would say to me if they could. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful poem. I'm going to share it with my family this Christmas because we always went to my uncle's for Christmas and it's going to be real tough this year so hopefully they will find comfort in this too.

This poem has alot of meaning. I had to take my mother off life support four years ago and I tend to blame myself for her death. Reading this poem has helped me to know that she is still around watching over me and supporting my decisions in life. Thank you Angela on a wounderful poem!!!!!!! You have a great outlook for the other side!

we have lost 5 relatives in 13 months and had a child in this time so you could say that we have had a bad time but also had some good times with our son..This poem summed everything up and the words brought home everything in our thoughts..thankyou so much xx.
Tess
The first time I heard this poem was at a 17 year olds' funeral. The essence of our struggles understanding the fine line between life and death have been put into words like I have never read or heard before. I have been searching for hours to find your poem, Angela, so that I may share it tomorrow at a dear friends' viewing (I didn't think I would find it). Thank you, thank you, thank you...And God bless you
Sarah
All I can say is thank you for writing that poem. I'm sure it helps people go on. My mom just past away a week ago and that poem helps so much. I have a copy and I plan to keep it for a long time. Thanks so much .
Audrey
A very touching poem.
Stacy
Your poem made me feel for once at ease. My grandfather and uncle also many friends have passed and for once someone has helped me be at peace. Just thinking that this is probably what they would all say comforts me from day to day. Thank you for writing such a beautiful poem.
DEBBIE
DEAREST ANGELA, THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR COMFORTING POEM. I LOST MY MOTHER INLAW ALMOST FOUR YEARS AGO. WE WERE SO CLOSE. I WAS HER CARE-GIVER. I KNOW IN MY HEART I WILL ALWAYS GRIEVE HER DEATH, BUT YOUR POEM IS TRULY WHAT I BELIEVE SHE WOULD SAY TO ME. I ALSO SENT YOUR POEM TO A CLOSE FRIEND WHO JUST LOST HER SON. I BELIEVE YOUR POEM WILL COMFORT HER AS WELL.SINCERELY, DEBBIE M.

I love this particular poem because it has a special meaning behind it. It makes you now fear death, but makes you understand that there is a special place after death.It is somewhat comforting for those who have lost a loved one.
LeighAnn
I recently lost my 17 year old sister to suicide and this poem was a very big inspiration to me. I now understand that she will be with me everyday. She was so beautiful and so full of life and I love her so much. Thanks for the inspiration!
Jen
I came here because I was feeling sad about my Grandfather (he passed away in June of this year from a massive heart attack)and I was hoping one of these poems would bring my spirits up well it was your poem that did it, I now realize that my Grandfather is in a better place. Your poem really touched my heart. Thank you.
Tara
My Grandmother died 5 years ago and I still miss her very much. I thought of her as I read you poem and I actually tears in my eyes. One of the worst things about loosing a loved one is not knowing where they are, you can't believe that they're just gone. Your poem gives peace at mind. Thank-you
Lisa
This poem was very touching and sad. It is also a well written poem which has a lot of meaning. Great poem!!!!

I never cry - cause I have no more ters to cry. But you managed to make me cry. I love your terrific way to say how things really are, well, at least how everybody hopes they're. Simply no words.
Linda
I just buried my mother today and a friend sent this poem to me. I sent it to my sisters and brother. It is really very beautiful.A mothers loss is such a very hard thing to deal with. Even if you know it is coming, it is still so hard.

Gavin
This has really helped a close friend after the very recent death of her father
Nancy
Thank you so much for this beautiful poem. My cousin passed away a few days ago after being trapped in a burning house. I've been trying so hard to make sense of this horrible tragedy, trying to understand what the fire must have been like through her eyes...now I've put that aside and am seeing what entering heaven for the first time might have been like instead. It will be an honor to read your poem at the burial in the cemetary tomorrow - I'm doing so in hopes that others in attendance will be able to gain some comfort from your insight just as I did. Again, thank you!
iesha

I recently lost my nana to cancer, she was 91 years old and fought her battle bravely and with great dignity. I read your poem at her funeral, it was exactly what she'd have said to all of us gathered to wish her good bye and God Bless on her journey home. Thankyou.

Danyale
This poem brings the greatest comfort to me. I lost my Grandmother 4 years ago,and I still cry till this day about her death. Your words bring me a sense of serenity . Thank You
Holly
This poem was excellent. It really touched my heart. You are very creative. Most people write about the way they feel when someone passes away. I liked the way that you showed the feelings from another perspective and point of view. This poem is one of my favorites. When I was very young, my father passed away unexpectedly. This broke my heart. I have to go through life without a father now but I never really thought that this might be what he might say. But you really said it right. I'm sure others who have passed on say this but we can't hear them. This poem was really sweet and I liked it a lot
Carolyn
this poem really moves me. three thumbs up! :0)
Chris
i just lost my grandfather to cancer and i would like to say that this poem really touched me.
Ariella
I LOVE THIS POEM. THANK YOU FOR WRITING THIS POEM, I WILL NEED IT PRETTY SOON, I CAN TELL. MY FATHER IS SICK, AND THE GREATEST PERSN IN THE WORLD, AND ITS NOT TOO LONG THAT HE WILL STAY. THANK YOU AGAIN
Trinni
I really like this poem because it makes death less dreary and saddening like how other people feels. It makes me realize there is another world out there, like another level of life. But this life has no pain. Everybody is loving and caring for eachother. And this life you would live for an eternity
Wendy
I lost my mom April 18,1999. This is something that is not an easy time for anyone no matter who it is. After reading this peom I felt better, and I'm sure it has and will help others!!
Phyllis
I lost both of my parents recently. It is my mom's birthday and I wanted to find a poem for her. I think that you are very talented!!!! Thank you for writing these poems and sharing them with us. Phyllis
Stacey
My Uncle just passed away less than a month ago and he was the absolute light of my life. A few years ago he had finally found God and excepted him into his life and he would always say the things Angela says in this poem to me. I know he wants us all to know that he is better off where he is and that is where he is meant to be and that we will all join him in eternity someday. I want you to please pick Angela's poem. And If you read this Angela...Thank you for helping me understand what he meant when he said these things and for helping me grieve.
Brandy
Great poem...
amy

Val
I think your poem is very beautiful, and yes I think that is what a letter from a loved one might say. I lost my oldest boy in an auto accident in 1997 due to a drunk driver. He loved poetry and wrote some himself. If you would like to see one that he wrote a month before his accident check out my website at; http://www.familyshoebox.com/family/Valeska May God Bless and keep you safe
Lisa
This is an absolutely wonderful poem. My 33 year old brother was just recently killed in a tragic accident. Angela's poem has helped us to have faith that he has a new life. I've shown it to my Mom and she loves it too. I think that many others can benefit from Angela's words...Thank You..

CHRISTIE
MY AUNT WAS RECENTLY BRUTALLY MURDERED AND SHE MEANT SO MUCH TO ME, AS IF SHE WERE A SECOND MOTHER TO ME. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO COPE WITH THIS TRADGEDY AND I FIND THAT IT GETS HARDER EVERY DAY. YOU SEE IT WAS MY COUSIN, HER OWN DAUGHTER WHO DID IT SO I DEAL WITH IT ON A DAILY BASIS. THIS POEM TOUCHES MY HEART AND MY SOUL. IT HELPS ME TO REALIZE THAT SHE WILL ALWAYS BE HERE EVEN THOUGH I CAN'T TOUCH HER.
