Thoughts today,
Memories forever.

Remembering you,
As time goes by.

Sadly missed,
Lovingly remembered.

Always in our thoughts,
Forever in our hearts.

Forever remembered,
Forever missed.

Love's greatest gift Mom -

Loved always,
Sadly missed.

A little tribute, small and tender,
Just to say we still remember.

The tears in my eyes I can wipe away,
The ache in my heart will always stay.

Suffer little children
To come unto Me.

Tenderly we treasure the past,
With memories that will always last.

As you were you will always be,
Treasured forever in our memory.

Mom holds her children's hands for awhile,
Their hearts forever.

Remembering you on this day,
Comforted by so many memories.

Though absent you are very near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

In the hearts of those who loved you,
You will always be there.

A page in our book of memories,
Is gently turned today.

Dearer still as the years depart,
He lives forever in my heart.

Your beauty is missed in every way.
"Forever in our hearts."

Mom, we treasure still, with love sincere,
Beautiful memories of one so dear.

There is a link death cannot sever,
Love and remembrance last forever.

Silent memories true and tender,
Just to show we still remember.

The Lord watch between thee and me,
While we are absent one from the other.

You still live on in the hearts and minds,
Of the loving family you left behind.

A garden of beautiful memories,
Sprayed with a million tears.

Beautiful memories are treasured ever,
Of happy days when we were together.

Loved with a love beyond all feeling,
Missed with a grief beyond all tears.

His memory is as dear today,
As in the hour he passed away.

Memories are like threads of gold,
They never tarnish or grow old.

He laboured hard for those he loved,
Then left us to remember.

Wherever I go, whatever I do,
Memories keep me near to you.

I lost my best, my dearest friend,
Dear Mom when I lost you.

Gentle, unselfish, a friend ever true,
My best possession, Mother, was you.

While you, dear Mother, rest and sleep,
Your loving memory we'll always keep.

I keep in my heart the love of the past,
For there it was planted forever to last.

Together in the same old way,
Would be my dearest wish today.

Loved with a love beyond telling,
Missed with a grief beyond all tears.

Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe on His loving breast.

Sweet little flower of heavenly birth,
She was too fair to bloom on earth.

No length of time can take away
My thoughts of you today.

4 Line Verses Please indicate which numbered verse you prefer

If we could only speak to her,
And hold her loving hand,
No matter what we said or did,
I know she'd understand.

Sadly missed along life's way,
Quietly remembered every day,
No longer in our life to share,
But in our hearts he's always there.

Memory is a lovely lane,
Where hearts are ever true,
A lane I so often travel down,
Because it leads to you.

Your presence I miss,
Your memory I treasure,
Loving you always,
Forgetting you never.

I sit and wonder every day,
Why the Lord chose to call you away,
I think He saw you needed rest,
He only takes the very best.

Everyday in some small way,
Memories of you come our way,
Though absent, you are always near,
Still missed, loved, always dear.

A sadness still comes over us,
Tears in silence often flow,
Memory keeps you ever near us,
Though you died one year ago.

Resting where no shadows fall,
In peaceful sleep he awaits us all;
God will link the broken chain,
When one by one we meet again.

I heard an angel cry - when I died -
The stillness in the room,
Was like the stillness in the air,
Between heaven and earth.

We who love you, sadly miss you,
As it dawns another year,
In our lonely hours of thinking,
Thoughts of you are ever near.

Loving you is easy,
We do it every day,
Missing you is a heartache,
That never goes away.

His charming ways and smiling face,
Are a pleasure to recall,
He had a kindly word for each,
And died beloved by all.

Loving memories of one so dear,
Treasured still with a love sincere,
In our hearts she is living yet,
We loved her too dearly to forget.

A part of my heart he took with him,
But his love he left me to keep,
So we will never really be parted,
The bond between us is too deep.

It's just a little,
But means a lot,
To say dear friend,
I haven't forgot.

Always a smile, instead of a frown,
Always a hand, when one is down,
Always true, thoughtful and kind,
Wonderful memories she left behind.

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God can tell us why.

It only takes a little space,
To write how much we miss you,
But it will take the rest of our lives,
To forget the way we lost you.

It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
For part of me went with you,
The day God called you home.

Oh how we wish she was here today,
To see all the blessings we have,
Yet somehow you know that she is,
Guiding us on our paths.

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

Peacefully sleeping, resting at last,
His weary trials and troubles past,
In silence he suffered, in patience he bore,
Till God called him home to suffer no more.

Although we smile and make no fuss,
No one misses him more than us;
And when old times we oft recall,
That's when we miss him most of all.

Keep her Jesus, in Thy keeping,
Until I reach that golden shore,
Then dear Saviour let me have her,
And love her as I did before.

Every tear is a prism through which I see,
A rainbow of emotions and memories,
Though fate has led you to another place,
rue moments hold meaning time can never erase.

His life earnest, his actions kind,
A willing hand, an active mind,
Anxious to please, loath to offend,
A loving brother and faithful friend.

Thinking of the thoughtful things,
That you have said and done,
And loving you a little more,
Dear ......, for every one.

We can't have old days back,
When we were all together,
But secret tears and loving thoughts,
Will be with us forever.

He walks with us down quiet paths,
And speaks in wind and rain,
For the magic power of memory,
Gives him back to us again.

The years may wipe out many things,
But this they'll wipe out never,
The memory of those happy days,
Which we have spent together.

(Number of) years ago you were called home,
Our thoughts are ever of you,
You are dearly loved and sadly missed,
God willing, we will meet again.

Dear mother (father) you are not forgotten,
Though on earth you are no more,
Still in memory you are with us,
As you always were before.

To me, her (his) name will ever be,
The key that unlocks memory,
Of a dear one gone, but cherished yet,
A beloved face I'll never forget.

Thank you for loving and sharing,
For giving and for caring,
God bless you and keep you,
Until we meet again.

Long Poems & Verses Please indicate which numbered verse you prefer


I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one,
I'd like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears, of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun
of happy memories that I leave
when life is done.



God on his throne in heaven
looked around at his flowers so fair,
and then sought a blossom on earth
to add to those He had there.
To be part of such heavenly company
the bloom must be pure and sweet,
and the little bud that was chosen
was the child who had played at our feet.
Sorrow is great at the loss of our child
at the parting with one we love,
but the parting was made that our child
might go to brighten the heavens above.


Be At Peace

Do not look forward in fear to the
changes in life; rather look to them
with full hope that as they arise,
God, whose very own you are, will
lead you safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand it, God
will carry you in His arms. Do not
fear what may happen tomorrow, the
same everlasting Father who cares
for you today, will take care of you
then and everyday. He will either
shield you from suffering, or will
give you unfailing strength to bear
it. Be at peace and put aside all
anxious thoughts and imaginations.

St. Francis de Sales


Blue Skies

God hath not promised
Skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways
All our lives through;
God hath not promised
Sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow,
Peace without pain.
But God hath promised
Strength for the day,
Rest for the labor,
Light for the way.
Grace for the trials,
Help from above,
Unfailing sympathy,
Undying love...



God needed an angel in Heaven
to stand at the Savior 's feet;
His choice must be the rarest
A lily pure and sweet.
He gazed upon the mighty throng
Then stopped and picked the best,
Our child was His chosen one
With Jesus (he's/she's) now at rest.


Darling Mother

What is home without a mother?
All things this world may send,
But when we lost our darling mother,
We lost our dearest friend.
Loving and kind in all your ways,
Upright and just to the end of your days;
Sincere and true, in your heart and mind;
Beautiful memories, you left behind.
However long our lives may last,
Whatever lands we view,
Whatever joy or grief be ours,
We will always think of you.


Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

Mary Frye (1932)

Death Is Nothing At All

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was
There is absolute unbroken continuity
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well.
Nothing is past; nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Canon Henry Scott-Holland


Everlasting Light, The

Those we love must someday pass
beyond our present sight. . .
must leave us and the world we know
without their radiant light.
But we know that like a candle
their lovely light will shine
to brighten up another place
more perfect... more devine.
And in the realm of Heaven
where they shine so warm and bright,
our loved ones live forevermore
in God's eternal light.


Father, A Light

A light is from our household gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God gave us a beautiful father,
A father who never grew old,
You were always there
With a helping hand,
Help us now to accept His plan.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by, we miss you more.
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can take our "Father's Place".
May the choirs of the angels receive
you and may you have rest
and peace everlasting. Amen.



One night I dreamed I was walking
Along the beach with the Lord,
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.
Other times there was only one.
This bothered me because I noticed
During the low periods of my life when I was
Suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, You promised me,
Lord, that if I followed you,
You would walk with me always.
But I noticed during the most trying periods
Of my life there has only been
One set of prints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
Have you not been there for me?
The Lord replied,
The times when you have seen only one set of footprints
It was then that I carried you.



For a Mother

A light is from our household gone,
A voice we loved is stilled.
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God gave us a beautiful mother,
A mother who never grew old.
You were always there with a helping hand.
Help us now to accept His plan.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by, we miss you more.
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can take our mother's place.
May you rest in peace.


God Lent a Child

"I'll lend you for a little time
a child of mine," He said
"For you to love the while he lives
and mourn for when he's dead.
It may be two or three years,
or twenty-two or three,
but will you 'til I call him back,
take care of him for me?
He will bring his charms to gladden you
and shall his stay be brief,
you will have his lovely memories
as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay,
since all from earth return,
but there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn.
I've looked the whole wide world over in
my search for teachers true,
and from the crowd that throngs life's
lanes I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,
nor think the labor vain,
nor hate me when I come to call
to take him back again."
I fancied that I heard them say,
"Dear Lord, Thy will be done.
For all the joy Thy child shall bring
the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness,
we'll love him while we may.
And for the happiness we've known,
forever grateful stay.
But shall the angels call for him much
sooner than we've planned,
we will brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand."


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with Thee:
blessed art Thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of
Thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.



His/Her Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of (him/her) as gone away,
her journey's just begun.
Life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrow and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort,
where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost,
and she was loved so much.

Ellen Brenneman


I am Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following paths God made for me
I took his hand I heard him call
Then turned, and bid farewell to all
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to sing, to play
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found my peace... at close of play
And if my parting left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened... deep with sorrow
I wish you sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full I've savoured much
Good friends, good times
A loved one's touch
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with grief
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wants me now... He set me free.


I am There

Look for me when the tide is high
And the gulls are wheeling overhead
When the autumn wind sweeps the cloudy sky.
And one by one the leaves are shed.
Look for me when the trees are bare.
And the stars are bright in the frosty sky.
When the morning mist hangs on the air.
And shorter darker days pass by.
I am there, where the river flows
And salmon leap to a silver moon
Where the insects hum and the tall grass grows.
And sunlight warms the afternoon.
I am there in the busy street
I take your hand in the city square
In the market place where the people meet
In your quiet room -
I am there
I am the love you cannot see
And all I ask is - look for me


I Am Standing Upon The Seashore

I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white
sails to the morning breeze
and startsfor the blue ocean.

She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until at length
she hangs like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come
to mingle with each other.

Then, someone at my side says;
"There, she is gone!"

"Gone where?"

Gone from my sight. That is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull
and spar as she was when she
left my sideand she is just as able to bear her
load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone
at my side says, "There, she is gone!"
There are other eyes watching her coming,
and other voices ready to take up the glad shout;
"Here she comes!"
And that is dying.

By Henry Van Dyke

Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not for long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that once we shared
Miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all part of the master's plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know.
Laugh at all the things we used to do
Miss me, but let me go.

When I am dead my dearest
Sing no sad songs for me
Plant thou no roses at my head
Nor shady cypress tree
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet
And if thou wilt remember
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not fear the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on as if in pain;
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

Christina Rosetti



Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn
some things,
But never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place
far greater than we know
For some, the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.

Little Angel

When God calls little children to
dwell with Him above, we mortals
sometimes question the wisdom of
His Love. For no heartache compares
with the death of one small child,
who does so much to make our world
seem wonderful and mild. Perhaps
God tires of calling the aged to His
fold, so He picks a rosebud before
it can grow old. God knows how much
we need them, and so He takes a few
to make the land of Heaven more
beautiful to view. Believing this is
difficult, still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be "Good-bye". So, when
a little child departs, we who are left
behind must realize God loves children.
Angels are hard to find.



Love is patient; Love is kind;
Love is not jealous,
it does not put on airs,
it is not snobbish.
Love is never rude.
It is not self seeking,
it is not prone to anger;
neither does it
brood over injuries.
Love does not rejoice
in what is wrong
but rejoices with the truth.
There is no limit to
Love's forbearance, its trust,
its hope, its power to endure.
Love never fails.



Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
For as long as there is memory,
They'll live on in our heart.


I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too.
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake
with which I'll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart.



IMy Mum so gentle, kind and warm
you give me comfort from any storm.
You give me love and tender care,
and best of all you're always there.
I thank you Mum for all you've done
for all the laughter and the fun.
For all the meals, for all the time,
I thank the Lord, that you are mine.



Perhaps you sent a lovely card
Or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray,
If so, we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
As any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
We thank you so much whatever the part.

Safely Home

I am in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In His everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever;
safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
in that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
for I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
pray to trust our Father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
so you must not idly stand;
do it now, while life remaineth--
you shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!


She Is Gone (He Is Gone)

You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

David Harkins


She Is Gone

I am standing on the seashore.
A ship spreads her sails to the
morning breeze and starts for
the ocean. I am watching until
she fades on the horizon, and
someone at my side says,
"She is gone."
Gone where? The loss of sight
is in me, not in her. Just at the
moment when someone says
"She is gone," There are others
who are watching her coming.
Other voices take up the glad
shout, "Here she comes!"....
And that is dying.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to
accept the things I cannot change.
The courage to change the things
I can, and the wisdom
to know the difference.


The Sky is Filled With Angels

The sky is filled with Angels
With puffy lacy wings
The remnants of God's beauty
With treasures they now bring

Each one of them a Guardian
That travels in the sky
To watch throughout eternity
Their parents from on high

Smiles that come from Angels
They fall like crystal rain
Eases earthly burdens
Lifting all life's pain

Halos so astounding
That glitter gold each day
Following their loved ones
In such a perfect way

Wings in gentle breezes
That fall from up above
Kissing every parent
With everlasting love

Angels soar through heaven
With everlasting light
Looking down from heaven
Saying their "goodnights"

Kissing all who loved them
So gently on the face
This life's tender mercy
Each parent can embrace

Wings and shiny halos
Travel from on high
Surrounding all their loved ones
They never say good-bye.


What is Dying?

A ship sails and I stand
Watching till she fades on the horizon
And someone at my side says,
She is gone.
Gone where?
Gone from my sight, that is all;
She is just as large as when I saw her.
The diminished size and total loss of sight
Is in me, not in her,
And just at the moment
When someone at my side says
She is gone
There are others who are watching her coming,
And other voices take up a glad shout
There she comes!
And that is dying
