A poem... which one do I use? Please look...

taunia1February 27, 2003

I found out that the family (re: previous post) is going to make this keepsake box for the little girl for years to come so she can have momentos to read when she's older. The following are 2 poems; one of which I have written, the other is from "unknown" which one do you think would be appropriate?

I know we couldn't say good-bye;

God had a plan, so please don't cry.

Just think about the time we had.

I know it's hard, but don't be sad.

I'm still here; you can talk to me.

You'll be mad at times & hard to see;

the reasons why God took me home.

I know you're frightened & feel alone.


As you gaze upon a starlit night,

or admire the splendor of peaceful sunset

remember I am here.

(c)Taunia Rose 2003

Remember Me

To the living I am gone

To the sorrowful I will never return

To the angry I was cheated

But to the happy I am at peace

And to the faithful, I have never left

I cannot be seen, but I can be heard

so as you stand upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea - remember me

As you look in awe at a mighty forest and its grand majesty

remember me

As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity - remember me

Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, and your memories of the times we loved, the times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed

For if you always think of me, I will have never gone

I like yours best, especially for a little 8 year old.
I think a stanza with something like this might be helpful too:

I know you'd like to be with me
But God has a special plan for you -
you'll see

So do your best and happy be,
I'm proud of you now and forever
will be.

I know when My GD lost her Daddy (my DS) at 8, she thought a lot about dying too.
