In Our Hearts, You Hold A Place

As the holidays approach, I find myself remembering the ones I have loved and lost. Like me, I'm sure many of you have lost someone that you love. I'd like to dedicate this poem to all of our loved ones who won't be here to enjoy the holidays with us.

When I must leave you for a little while,

Please do not grieve and shed wild tears.

A million times we've needed you,

A million times we've cried.

If love alone could have saved you,

You never would have died.

In death we love you still,

In our hearts, you hold a place,

That no one else can ever fill.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

But you didn't go alone.

For part of us went with you,

The day God took you home.
