Death is so hard in itself, but when it comes unexpectedly like it did on 911, the school shootings or even by a drunk driver crashing into an innocent person driving home from work, it must be so overwhelming for all those involved. When someone is in hospice or is hooked up to life support, you may have a little time to prepare your heart, but when one minute life is going well and the next many are dead... what do you do? By no means is the pain of death worse for 1 than the other. Death is death. The shock of one may be intensified by the unexpected. A loved one dying is hard no matter how they die. The below uplifting poems about death are in memory of those who died in a tragedy. All death is unfair in its own way, but those who believe in God and heaven know there is a hereafter. Death is only a door we must go through to get to heaven. One day we will unite with those we love. Keep looking up through any tragedy and know God loved your loved one before you did and it was time for him/her to come home to him. I pray the inspirational poems on the Heaven's Roll Call website will offer you encouragement to keep looking up.
When I am afraid, I will trust you.
Blessed are they that mourn;
for they will be comforted.
The Lord God will wipe away
tears from all faces.
...blessed are they that have not seen and yet believed.
