POEMS: “Love is eternal” by Trina Graves


Love Is Eternal


Our lives are blessed with loved ones
Which makes it harder to bear
When they are taken from our sides
And are no longer there

We miss their smile, their warmth, their love
And sink deeper into our grief
We’re told that time will heal the pain
But still there is no relief

At quiet times we may feel their presence
But pass it off with a rebuff
We think that our minds are playing tricks
As if we’re not suffering enough

The key to it all is an ‘open mind’
With this you’ll know the way
If your mind is open you’re willing to be
Ready to accept miracles each day

Our loved ones are not that far away
Although it can be hard to believe
Just reach out with your thoughts and love
And be open for the gifts you’ll receive

Love is eternal it never dies
When we pass, it’s all that we can take
The love we share is never lost
The bond will never break

    I love sympathy poems ! I have had a lot of close losses,but these poems always give me a positive prospective and hope. I know from my own spiritual experiences that we will always have are loved ones with us and that we will be together face to face in heaven,even some we haven’t met yet! Love and blessings to you and sweet Amira! Linda.

      Wow, this ties in so much with the last comment I wrote to you Linda (on The Bus Journey). Sympathy poems are what got me interested in collecting quotes and poems and this one was my very first attempt at writing one, it was also the first poem I intentionally wrote.
      That you, who have had a lot of close losses, feel any upliftment from my poems brings me such confirmation that I am doing what I came here to do, so thank you so very much Linda for sharing your thoughts and experiences. Bless you and all your loved ones here and in Heaven. ❤


      1. Amen to that dear Trina 🙂 ❤ Let those inspiring and comforting words flow freely and continue to spread the light and love through your beautiful poems!
