Until Then, My Grief Remains

Grief & Grieving


I can still hear the sound of your laughter,

And how it sounded when you said my name.

But since you went on Home to Heaven,

My life just hasn't been the same.


Oh Momma, I never knew a grief like this...

How I long to see again, your beautiful face.

For no one else, but your loving Mother, 

Can fill such an empty and hurting space.


It seems that every special moment now,

Is missing that one special light,

For you were the light that shined at our top,

Our matriarch, who held us together, tight.


I know your loving it, up there in Heaven,

I know how you longed to be free of your pain.

And for that, I'd never wish you back to this earth,

For I know my loss of you, was certainly Heaven's gain.


But one day, when it comes my turn to depart,

And you meet me there upon, that Golden Shore.

I know then, that my aching grief, of losing you,

Will forever and finally be...no more.
