Your poems: Sarah
Sarah Merriman, who works for the Alzheimer’s Society in Lincolnshire, shares a poem she wrote following her grandmother's death.
Sarah says it "represents the feeling that those we have loved never truly leave us, and that their spirit is still around us and hopefully that may bring comfort in difficult times".
When we meet again
The end has come, the time is near,
For me to leave, to disappear,
Do not mourn and cry for me,
A better world I'm off to see,
Remember me with laughter, smiles,
Remember how we’d walk for miles,
I’ll not go far, you understand,
If you need me, just reach out your hand,
And touch the flowers and the grass,
For all good things one day must pass,
But I’ll be there in wind and sky,
In natures beauty, way up high,
So please, love, do not shed a tear,
Because, you know, I am still here,
I’m only moving home, you see,
I’m off to heaven... Fancy, me!
Until the day, we meet again,
Please don’t live a life of pain,
Talk to me and when you pray,
You will hear me softly say,
“I love you too though, we’re apart,
You always will be in my heart.
