Parent’s Love… Always With You

No matter how long ago
Days, months, or many years
Their presence no longer in your life
Can bring some sadness and tears

But also, a tear of joy can fall
As you fondly reminisce
The Love you so dearly felt
Embraced, or a tender kiss

Or maybe they didn’t demonstrate
Their Love, with words or touch
But in your Heart you know the truth
They Loved you, so very much

You were their pride and their joy
All through your young childhood
And as you grew into an adult
Their inner-reflection, now stood

For you are linked in many ways
Not only through your DNA
But the Love and nurture that you felt
Remains in your Heart today

They may have left the physical
But their Energy of Love remains
Walking with you through your life
With all its joys and pains

With you through the celebrations
Births, weddings, and birthdays
Often caught in photographs
As energy orb displays

With you in the quiet times
When they pop into your mind
Wanting to bring you inner peace
Their Love, you can always find

With you when your Heart aches
And when you can take no more
They know you’ll heal in time
Because their Love is in your core

With you at times of success
Proud to be the parent of you
Throughout all your milestones and goals
They were there, to see you through

With you in times of trouble
Worry, stress, and strife
Their compassion and support
Always with you, through your life

For we are not just physical
But Eternal Beings of Love
Growing through our Earthly lives
Linked always below and above

Sharing and experiencing all of life
With our Soul group, we walk
And if we open-up our Heart
To the other side we can talk

Always with you… in your Heart
Always with you… every day
Always with you… in Loving Energy
Always with you… they will stay

Always with you, and especially
They await your presence above
One day in time you’ll be together
To reminisce your lives of Love

They will be there on that day
Excited to embrace, and you’ll see
When you transition to the other side
They were always with you, in Love Energy

Trina Graves – 16th October 2019


About This Poem

I wrote this poem for my Dad’s 83rd birthday (on 18th October), I made it into a small book that also contained pictures of his parents. My grandmother Evelyn died in 1967, aged 60, and my grandfather James in 1999, aged 85. I was only six when my nanny died, but I have fond memories of her because we lived next door, so were able to be with her often. I was given the name Evelyn (middle name) and I know I am like her in many ways. I have always felt a closeness to her throughout the years, and I know she is with me often too.

The idea for the poem was given to me (from Spirit) and I instantly knew it would be perfect to write for my Dad. My Mum has always been the ‘Spiritual’ one of my parents, but my Dad is unsure of such matters, so I do like to share my views with him, especially as a way of hopefully opening the door – just a little, if he’s willing – for him to see the Light that can shine through. 

Although this poem is about ‘parental’ love, I believe that it is really true about any love relationship and of course, for me it rings true about my grandparents and me too.

Evelyn was a doting mother and grandmother and easily showed her love, but James was very reserved, due to the times he lived in and his very hard upbringing, which is why there is a verse on not physically demonstrating love.

If this poem was not written especially for my Dad, I would have also included some verses to talk of those parents who were not present in the child’s physical life, or who might have physically or mentally mis-treated their child. I would have said: no matter what happens in any family relationship, on the Higher or Spiritual level the conditions gone through were pre-chosen by both Souls and at the core of it all there is only love, which will be revealed when united at death. I can now see I need to write another poem to cover this! 🙂 

Although it was not written as a ‘sympathy’ poem, I believe that it is certainly a part of this category, so I will include it with my other Sympathy Poems.

  1. A lovely poem dear Trina, with profound meaning at many levels. I am amazed at the feeling that it was also resonating with me, even tough it was specifically written for your dad. “Often caught in photographs, As energy orb displays”, brought also a special meaning for me as well. 🙏 ❤️
    A lovely picture of your grandparents! 😍
