Love goes on

by May Fenn

Death is not the end,
For love goes on
And you will find the evidence
Long after I have gone.
The flowers that we planted
Will blossom without end,
You’ll find me in their beauty
As to their needs you tend.
The books we read together,
The laughter in the pages,
Will continue to give pleasure
To you throughout the ages.
So do not mourn my passing
You are not left alone,
You’ll always find me waiting
In the places we have known.
The bond that grew between us
Will not abate with time,
It will go on for always,
I’m yours and you are mine.

I wrote this poem and my daughter gave it to her husband when she was dying from cancer. He said he found it a great comfort.

Loves goes on is beautifully written.

My father passed away 20 years ago from cancer, reading this poem today reminds me of how I feel about him.

Just recently lost a co-worker and friend, and I have been asked to speak at her service, I would love to read poem to the family.

Thankyou and what a touching poem. I used a few words to add to my Uncle Terry's eulogy which I will be speaking at this Saturday.

The Lord bless you and comfort you and give you His peace.
