A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Time Is Meant To Heal

Although unheard, I thank you

For always being there.

Even when you were bedridden,

You always seemed to care.

You meant so much to all of us;

You were special and that’s no lie.

You brightened up the darkest day

And even the greyest sky.

Many tears I have seen and cried.

They have all poured out like rain.

I know that you are happy now

‘Cause you’re no longer in pain.

Four years on, I remember you

And what you used to say.

You made each of us smile

And live to the fullest each day.

They say in time it gets easier.

I believe this isn’t true

Because even after all this time,

I still don’t have a clue.

I was not ready to say goodbye.

Your disease just over took,

So on this day we remember you.

I take a second look.

Our friendship is forever.

Until death, did we part.

Although you’re away physically,

You’re always in my heart.
