O joys that are gone, will you ever return To gladden our hearts as of yore? Will we find you awaiting us, some happy morn? When we drift to Eternity’s shore? Will dear eyes meet our own, as in days that are past? Will we thrill at the touch of a hand? O joys that are gone, will we find you at last On the shores of that wonderful land?
Mrs. H.M. Reasoner
Many friends that traveled with me Reached heaven’s portal long ago: One by one they left me battling With the dark and crafty foe. They are watching at the portal, They are waiting at the door; Waiting only for my coming – The beloved ones gone before.
More Christian Grief Poems
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
She is not dead – the child of our affection But gone unto that school Where she no longer needs our poor protection, And Christ himself doth rule.
Day after day we think what she is doing In those bright realms of air; Year after year, her tender steps pursuing, Behold her grown more fair.
