    beautiful poem that brings a tear to my eye :'(
    To my dearest family,
    some things I'd like to say.
    But first of all, to let you know,
    that I arrived okay.
    I'm writing this from the Bridge.
    Here I dwell with God above.
    Here there's no more tears of sadness.
    Here is just eternal love.
    Please do not be unhappy
    just because I'm out of sight.
    Remember that I am with you
    every morning, noon and night.
    That day I had to leave you
    when my life on earth was through,
    God picked me up and hugged me
    and He said, "I welcome you.
    It's good to have you back again,
    you were missed while you were gone.
    As for your dearest family,
    They'll be here later on."
    God gave me a list of things,
    that he wished for me to do.
    And foremost on the list,
    was to watch and care for you.
    And when you lie in bed at night
    the day's chores put to flight,
    God and I are closest to you...
    in the middle of the night.
    When you think of my life on earth,
    and all those loving years,
    because you are only human,
    they are bound to bring you tears.
    But do not be afraid to cry:
    it does relieve the pain.
    Remember there would be no flowers,
    unless there was some rain.
    I wish that I could tell you
    all that God has planned.
    If I were to tell you,
    you wouldn't understand.
    But one thing is for certain,
    though my life on earth is o'er.
    I'm closer to you now,
    than I ever was before.
    There are rocky roads ahead of you
    and many hills to climb;
    But together we can do it
    by taking one day at a time.
    It was always my philosophy
    and I'd like it for you too;
    That as you give unto the world,
    the world will give to you.
    If you can help somebody
    who's in sorrow and pain;
    Then you can say to God at night...
    "My day was not in vain."
    And now I am contented...
    that my life was worthwhile.
    Knowing as I passed along
    I made somebody smile.
    God says: "If you meet somebody
    who is sad and feeling low;
    Just lend a hand to pick him up,
    as on your way you go.
    When you're walking down the street
    with me on your mind;
    I'm walking in your footsteps
    only half a step behind."
    "And when it's time for you to go...
    from that body to be free.
    Remember you're not going...
    you're coming here to me."

    Ditto - It made me spare time to remember my lost ones as I read it.

    That poem has had me in floods of tears yet again, but it was very comforting, thank you for sharing it.

    this poem didn't just put a tear in my eye it had me sobbing like a baby!!!
    It's amazing how poems like this bring back memories of my special little boy (or old man as I used to call him :) ) and make me cry and yet they're comforting too :)
