I’ve had requests recently for suggestions of poems about loved ones being reunited in heaven; especially parents or grandparents being back together in the afterlife.
I’ve done some extensive searching and hopefully some of these poems will bring some hope and comfort.
The Promise of Tomorrow
We walked the path of this life,
Hand in hand, heart to heart,
Joined as one, Husband and Wife,
Until we had to part.
Death is a curious idea,
My love for you is very real,
It pains me to live without you near,
It’s something time will never heal.
Now my darling, I close my eyes,
and imagine your smiling face,
as my spirit flies towards the skies,
and I’m reunited with you in grace.
No one could truly be mourning,
If they just knew how grateful I am,
I’m with you and it’s like a summer’s morning,
Joined forever, woman and man.
I look briefly at the ones who have to live on,
In the world of trials and strife,
but I know you’ll be fine, you wont go wrong,
You too, will leave this life.
Do not be down,
don’t you frown,
let go of your sorrow!
because soon there’ll be a glorious sound,
and a promise of tomorrow.
Mother and Child Reunited
I thought that I was having a dream
That I was in heave and this was the scene
“Come and see the Angels play,
they’re having so much fun today.”
I wondered what was going on
to make them sing and play this long
And then an Angel caught my eye
And down to me it began to fly.
And then another Angel came and then
this one gently called my name.
I went up to Heaven too
And never again was I ever blue.
Because now the mother and the child
have been reunited on the other side.

We weren’t prepared that day
When God called you away
So many tears we cried
Longing to keep you at our side.
How we loved and missed you so
And weren’t ready to let you go
But it gives us comfort to know
Within the twinkling of our eyes
You entered into paradise.
A place with beauty beyond measure
Eternal happiness and treasure
Where you have no more pain and tears
Nor sorrow, worries, and fears.
Although for now we are apart
Your precious memories live in our heart
Until God calls us each to Heaven’s door
Where we will be reunited, forever more.
[A poem by Gabriele Embry, USA. This poem is dedicated to all the families who have lost a loved one.]
She knew her life was through
But wasn’t scared to die
She closed her pain filled eyes
Her final breath a sigh
Her husband took her hand
And whispered ‘Welcome Dear’
It’s been so very long –
we won’t be parted here

In Loving Memory of Mum & Dad
I am sending a dove to Heaven
With a parcel on its wings
Be careful when you open it
It’s full of beautiful things
Inside are a million kisses
Wrapped up in a million hugs
To say how much I miss you
And to send you all my love
Mum and Dad
I hold you close
Within my heart
And there you will remain
To walk with me
Throughout my life
Until we meet again.
