A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Taken From Me

I’m sitting here in my room, looking at your picture,

wondering why you couldn’t be a part of my future.

Uncontrollable tears stream down my face,

while my heartbeat starts to race.

Asking God why he took you from my life,

it was more painful than stabbing me in the heart with a knife.

I still needed you here.

You were the one to make everything so clear.

You are a part of me, and I am a part of you.

When you died, a part of me died too.

I never knew how hard it was to lose someone you love

until the day you went to heaven above.

Even though I can’t see,

I know you’re up there watching over me.

I miss you more and more every day,

and all I can do is pray.

In my heart you shall forever remain.
