Don't Cry For Me (Poem by Deborah Garcia Gaitan)

Don’t cry for me.
I will be okay.
Heaven is my home now,
and this is where I’ll stay.

Don’t cry for me.
I’m where I belong.
I want you to be happy
and try to stay strong.

Don’t cry for me.
It was just my time,
but I will see you someday
on the other side.

Don’t cry for me.
I am not alone.
The angels are with me
to welcome me home.

Don’t cry for me,
for I have no fear.
All my pain is gone,
and Jesus took my tears.

Don’t cry for me.
This is not the end.
I’ll be waiting here for you
when we meet again.

Hello Ken
Thank you. Yes, they are beautiful and so tearful. I like reading poems hoping for some comfort in the words, but the tears take over and I’m left heart broken again. When will the pain ease?
Stay strong.

Lovely poem…but so sad all i did was cry.
My husband died 17 months ago from sporadic cjd i
lost him and then just had to watch him pass bit by bit and was unable to say goodbye. love to you all.

Hello polly1
So sorry for the loss of your husband, and sorry the poem made you cry.
It’s just non stop crying and the smallest of things set you off, it just seems never ending .
My partner died 3 months ago from this horrible Covid-19 which he caught in hospital, and I never got the chance to say goodbye.
Take care and stay strong.
