The Ones Who We Loved

The ones who we loved will always be alive,
Always there to guide us.
On their memory will our love thrive
And flourish. And thus
we shall keep them in our hearts and minds.
But we know that they are now with Hashem;
In Gan Eden peace is what the soul finds.
But do they realize how much we miss them?
The soul cries as it departs,
Yet a piece of it remains inside.
The piece is the memory in our hearts
To which the soul remains tied.
We don't know the reason why
Things like are forced to be.
Sometimes we just break down and cry
And ask "Why did it happen to me?"

It's okay to cry.
