"My Heart Aches With Yours…my Love" By, Nancy Alexander


As I am Saddened by the Loss of Your Dear Friend

My heart aches with yours… my love,
As you are saddened by the loss of a dear friend…
He left this earth to join God above, but that is NOT the end.


My arms reach out to surround you…
To comfort and to love…
Desiring to wipe away the pain you feel…
With a heart knowing God awaited him above.


In His mansions of glory and His streets paved with gold,
Your friend’s life has just begun for Eternity we’re told.
He feels no pain, only Happiness, Joy and Peace…
For he is near God with Crowns of Gold at His feet.


I feel an ache within your soul…
Because we share a oneness that makes us whole.
My heart sees your eyes wet with tears…
I need to wrap my arms around you and be near.


Although I met this friend of yours only once upon a time,
The remembrances of that short meeting will forever be on my mind.
I remember the pride you took in your introductions that day…
Anxious for me to meet a man who worked right across the way.
And anxious for him to meet me, your wife…
Filled me with pride and joy that I am sharing your life.


His smile drew me in just as, I’m sure, it did you…
I know he was a good man with a good heart too.
Many words you have spoken of him flood my thoughts today…
I feel as though I knew him well through those many words you’d say.


There were words of admiration as well as sympathy too…
As you watched him struggle day after day with nothing you could do.
He was a good man with a good heart and soul…
I know that from YOU, my love…if the truth be told.


Many things his heart desired that his body just could not do…
You feel a deep loss today as I do along with you.
Your friends are friends of mine, my dear…
Your admirations shared too…
And heart-felt hurts felt deeply within, as I grieve along with you.


My arms are holding you…
My lips are touching yours…
My heart feels your heart's pain…
Nothing in this life is in vain.


I Thank God every day that we are one…
Sharing our lives, thoughts and dreams because of the "Son".
I love you my darling… Laney



 

I wrote this poem yesterday morning and sent it to my husband at work 
after he found that a dear friend from work had died over the weekend.
