A More Perfect Love {from the archives}

I don’t ever share the poems I write here, but honestly friends I have a hard time finding words these days. This poem pretty much sums up everything, especially so close to everything- mother’s day, Jenna’s birthday, Bubby’s 2nd birthday. All of it.

I wrote this on my first blog on August 16, 2009. I hope it speaks to you, if you have lost a child. I like to believe there really is a more perfect love in Heaven. One that will make sense of the nonsense we went through down here, the second we get there.

I see your tears
When noone else does
I know how you miss me
And the emptiness you feel

I wish sometimes I could tell you
How I really am ok
How Heaven is far sweeter than words can tell
How precious the Lord is and I’m at home
Where all is well

I know that doesn’t soften the blow
I know that doesn’t dry your eyes
But if I could tell you just one thing
It would be that in Heaven there’s just a more perfect love

A love that dries tears
A love that stands still
A love that doesn’t know time
A love that forgets the woes of this life

And while you miss me being in your arms
I miss you too
But time hasn’t torn a hole in my heart yet,
It’s not been but a few moments
that I have been gone

The place where we one day will meet
Is closer than it feels
And me, your precious Angel
Am closer than you think

The life that I lived reached our Father’s will
Far sooner than you would have chosen
But from Heaven the big picture is clear
And there’s no doubt behind it there is perfection

The love that fills your heart for me
Does not go unseen
The tears you cry because I’m not there
Will be dried in Heaven

The longing that haunts you with emptiness
Will one day be restored
But Mother, in my new home
There is just a more perfect love

    Beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing. “The place where we one day will meet
    Is closer than it feels.” I really hope so. Really missing my sweet baby boy today.
