If You Really Love Me Don’t Cry, By Robert W. McGowan, Jr.


This poem was written by my husband Robert W. McGowan, Jr. who recently passed away.  He wrote this to me, his children, and all those who loved him.  He was very brave, and knew he was going to be with the Lord.  He tried not to show his fear.    He wrote this poem about three days before he passed away which was  on 24 January 2014.  He wanted me to publish it.

When I get to heaven

I am going to look all around

For the faces on earth that I have found

I know when I get there

There be hundreds waiting to see me

More in heaven than on earth

That I have just left

Jesus will be smiling

Because he needed me there

Looking with a loving stare

He’ll hold my hand and take me to the castle I built

With my good deeds

It will have a stream and a lake

And rainbows all around

And all my friends and love ones

That I lost will be found

The people on earth

That I have just left

Will miss me for a while

Looking around for the things

I have touched with a smile

I knew when I put my clown costume on

I had fixed a lot of smiles

To all the players and all the haters

They will be glad when I am gone

But I will never have to see them

Because they won’t be in Heaven

They’ll be lost and gone

To the people who loved me

Please don’t cry

Because I will be next to you

Looking in your eyes

You will feel me every time you laugh

When you look at my silly pictures

You know my love will never past

Keep a smile tucked under your pillow at night

Of birthday parties past

God bless and good night.

  1. Rob will always be with me for all the times we had together. He could be trying but i never turnd away from him. The great times we had were truly great. I also had some great times with his sister thanks to knowing Rob. I was the lucky one to have had such a person in my life. Love to you Rob and all the family you have still here with us..
