God's Garden Poem

A Million Tears Poem

A Heart Of Gold

God looked around his garden,
And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you,
And lifted you to rest,
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb,
So he closed your weary eyelids,
And whispered “Peace be thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
LP1 V1
 
A bouquet of beautiful memories,
Sprayed with a million tears,
Wishing God could have spared you,
If just for a few more years.
It does not take a special day,
For us to think of you.
Each Mass we hear,each prayer we say,
Is offered up to you.
We cannot bring the old days back,
When we were all together,
The family chain is broken now,
But memories live forever.
It was a sudden parting,
Too bitter to forget,
Only those who loved you,
Are the ones who will never forget.
The blow was hard, the shock severe,
To part with one we loved so dear,
Our loss is great, we’ll not complain,
But trust in God to meet again.
LP2 V1
We lost a mother with a heart of gold,
How much we miss her can never be told,
She shared our troubles 
and helped us along,
If we follow her foot steps,
We will never go wrong.
We miss you from your fireside chair,
Your loving smile and gentle air,
Your vacant place no one can fill,
We miss you mother and always will.
She was a mother so very rare,
Content in her home and always there,
On earth she toiled, in heaven she rests,
God bless you mother,
You were one of the best.
Each time we look at your picture,
You seem to smile and say,
Don’t be sad but courage take,
And love each other for my own sake.
LP3 V1

Our Mother

Stairway To Heaven

After Glow Poem

You can only have one mother
Patient, kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.
When other friends forsake you,
To mother you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.
As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus, take this message,
To our dear mother up above;
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love.
LP4 V1
If tears could build a stairwell
And memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say good-bye...
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knows why.
LP5 V1
I'd like the memory of me
To be a happy one,
I'd like to leave an after glow
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.
LP6 V1

Your Gentle Face 

Her Journey

Death Is Nothing At All Poem

Your gentle face and patient smile.
With sadness we recall
You had a kindly word for each
And died beloved by all.
The voice is mute and stilled the heart
That loved us well and true.
Ah, bitter was the trial to part
From one so good as you.
You are not a forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.
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 fill your vacant place.
LP7 V1
Don’t think of 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.
LP8 V1
Death is nothing at all - I have only
slipped away into the next room.
Whatsoever we were to each other,
that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
speak to me in the easy way
which you always used to.
Laugh as we always laughed at the
little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort.
 Life means all that it has ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was,
there is absolutely unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of your mind
because I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner. All is well.
LP9 V1

Contented Poem

He Only Takes The Best

I'm Free Poem

Now I am contented
That my life it was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile.
When you are walking down the street
And you’ve got me on your mind
I’m walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.
And when you face the gentle breeze
Or the wind upon your face,
I’m giving you a great big hug
Or just a soft embrace.
So please don’t be unhappy,
Just because I’m out of sight,
Remember that I’m with you,
Every morning, noon and night.
LP10 V1
God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be,
so he put his arms around you,
and whispered "Come to me".
With tearful eyes we watched you,
and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hardworking hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
LP11 V1
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free;
I took His hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
If my parting has left a void;
Then fill it with remembered joy.
My life’s been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times, 
a loved one’s touch.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.
LP12 V1

My Journey

Crossing The Bar

No Tears

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.
LP13 V1
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew 
from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For tho' from out our bourne 
of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.
LP14 V1
Weep not for me though I am gone
Into the gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.
There is no need for tears.
I am at peace, my soul is at rest
There is no pain, I suffer not,
For with your love I was so blessed.
I am in a place of comfort
The fear now is gone.
Put those things in your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death
But celebrate my life.
LP15 V1

Don't Cry For Me

Angel

The Star

Don't cry for me now I have died, 
for I'm still here I'm by your side,
My body's gone but my soul is here, 
please don't shed another tear,
I am still here I'm all around, 
only my body lies in the ground.
I am the snowflake that kisses your nose,
I am the frost, that nips your toes.
I am the sun, bringing you light,
I am the star, shining so bright.
I am the rain, refreshing the earth,
I am the laughter, I am the mirth.
I am the bird, up in the sky,
I am the cloud, that's drifting by.
I am the thoughts, inside your head,
While I'm still there, I can't be dead.
LP16 V1
Tear drops, slow and steady, 
The pain so real and true,
God took another angel, 
And that angel, dear, was you.
Angel wings, upon the clouds, 
Your body softly sleeps,
Hush now little angel, 
No more tears you have to weep.
Little prayers are sent to you, 
The short life you led;
Your family will never forget you, 
So rest your little head.
I know God will look after you, 
Now you are truly alive,
Your spirit soars beyond the moon, 
Your legacy will survive.
You’re beautiful, you’re endless, 
Now stretch your wings and fly,
You’re loved by so many, 
It will never be goodbye.
Close your pretty eyes, 
No more tears, just go and rest,
Let your soul lie peacefully, 
We know you did your best.
LP17 V1
A light went out on Earth for me
The day we said goodbye
And on that day a star was born,
The brightest in the sky
Reaching through the darkness
With its rays of purest white
Lighting up the Heavens
As it once lit up my life
With beams of love to heal
The broken heart you left behind
Where always in my memory
Your lovely star will shine
LP18 V1

I Am Home In Heaven

Always Near

You Never Said Goodbye

I am home in Heaven, dear ones:
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this Everlasting Light.
All the pain and grief are over!
Every restless yearning past;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely Home in Heaven at last.
Dear one, do not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,
Pray to trust Our Father’s Will.
When your work is completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh! the rapture of that meeting!
Oh, the joy to see you come.
LP19 V1
Time has taken me from you,
Although not very far.
I’ll be watching through the sunshine
And through the brightest star.
I’ll be watching all of you,
From the heavens up above.
So take good care of each other
And carry all my love.
If you’re ever wondering where I am,
here’s where you can start.
Take a look inside yourself
Deep within your heart.
LP20 V1
You never said "I’m leaving"
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why.
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried,
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In Life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still,
In my heart you hold a place
That no one could ever fill.
LP21 V1

Softly In The Morning Poem

We Hold You Close

I Am Waiting

Softly in the evening/morning,
You heard a gentle call,
You took the hand God offered you,
And quietly left us all.
The day you left us all,
our hearts just broke in two,
The smallest part is still with us,
And the biggest part with you.
For the rest of our lives we will miss you,
Our secret tears still flow,
Oh, how we really loved you,
No one will ever know.
We miss your smile, your joking ways
We miss the things, you used to say,
And when old times we do recall,
It’s when we miss you most of all.
You were always there when we needed you,
No task too great or small,
With loving heart and willing hands,
For us you did it all.
Look around your garden Lord,
And when he (she) turns and smiles,
Put your arms around him (her),
And hold him (her) for a while.
LP22 V1
We hold you close
Within our hearts,
And there you shall remain,
To walk with us
Throughout our lives,
Until we meet again.
So rest in peace,
Dear ( add name),
And thanks for
All you’ve done.
We pray that God
Has given you,
The crown you’ve truly won.
LP23 V1
When I must leave you for a little while,
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow 
To you through the years.
But start out bravely with a gallant smile.
And for my sake and in my name,
Live on and do all things the same,
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways.
Reach out your hand 
In comfort and in cheer,
And I in turn will comfort 
you and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
LP24 V1
 

Miss Me But Let Me Go Poem

One At Rest

To Those Whom I Love

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 too long,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once
shared, miss me but let me go.
For this journey we all must take,
and each must go alone.
It’s all part of the Master plan,
a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
go to the friends we know
and bury your sorrows 
in doing good deeds.
Miss me, but let me go.
LP25 V1
Think of me as one at rest,
for me you should not weep
I have no pain no troubled thoughts
for I am just asleep.
The living thinking me that was,
is now forever still
And life goes on without me now,
as time forever will.
If your heart is heavy now
because I've gone away
Dwell not long upon it friend
For none of us can stay.
Those of you who liked me,
I sincerely thank you all
And those of you who loved me,
I thank you most of all.
And in my fleeting lifespan,
as time went rushing by
I found some time to hesitate,
to laugh, to love, to cry.
Matters it now if time began
If time will ever cease?
I was here, I used it all,
and now I am at peace.
LP26 V1
When I am gone, release me, let me go. 
I have so many things to see and do, 
You mustn't tie yourself to 
me with too many tears, 
But be thankful we had so many good years.
I gave you my love, and you can only guess 
How much you've given me in happiness. 
I thank you for the love that you have shown, 
But now it is time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must, 
Then let your grief be comforted by trust. 
It is only for a while that we must part, 
So treasure the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away for life goes on. 
And if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, 
I will be near. 
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear, 
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you come this way alone, 
I'll greet you with a smile and a
'Welcome Home'.
LP27 V1

My Hero

You Can Shed Tears

You Toiled So Hard

You held my hand when I was small
You caught me when I fell
You are the hero of my childhood
And my later years as well
And every time I think of you
My heart still fills with pride
Though I will always miss you Dad
I know you’re by my side
In laughter and in sorrow
In sunshine and in rain
I know you’re watching over me
Until we meet again.
LP28 V1
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’ll come back,
or you can open your eyes 
and see she has left.
Your heart can be empty
because you can’t see her,
or you can be
full of the love 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’s 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’d want,
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
LP29 V1
You toiled so hard for those you loved.
You said goodbye to none,
your spirit flew before we knew,
your work on earth was done.
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 fill your vacant place.
Your life was love and labour.
Your love for your family true.
You did the best for all of us.
We will always remember you.

Foot Prints In The Sand Poem

Our Father’s Garden

Butterfly Kisses Poem

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 were
one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see 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 have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied, "The times when you
have seen only one set
of footprints in the sand,
is when I carried you."
LP31 V1
Our Father kept a garden.
A garden of the heart;
He planted all the good things,
That gave our lives their start.
He turned us to the sunshine,
And encouraged us to dream:
Fostering and nurturing
The seeds of self-esteem.
And when the winds and rain came,
He protected us enough;
But not too much because he knew
We would stand up strong and tough.
His constant good example,
Always taught us right from wrong;
Markers for our pathway 
that will last a lifetime long.
We are our Fathers garden,
We are his legacy.
Thank you Dad we love you.
LP32 V1
Don’t cry for me please don’t be sad
Hold on to the memories 
of the times we both had
Don’t dwell on dark thoughts
hold on tight to your wishes
Sending you hugs and butterfly kisses.
I walk beside you I am there all day long
I am right here but you think I am gone
You don’t see me but I can see you
What ever the problems 
I will help get you through
I am the wind in your hair 
the sand in your toes
Butterfly kisses that you feel on your nose
I am with you at sunrise and in sunset
But you can’t see me is my one regret.
I sit right beside you when you are sad
As you look through the photos 
of times we both had
I watch you sleeping I hold you so tight
Before I go I kiss you goodnight.
I will watch over you from heaven above
Forever you will be my one true love
Hold on to your dreams and all your wishes
Sending you hugs and butterfly kisses.
LP33 V1

 A Letter From Heaven Poem

Along The Road

Do Not Stand At My Grave Poem

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand.
My place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
LP34 V1
Along the road to yesterday
That leads us straight to you
Are memories of the happy days
Together we once knew
And always every evening
We seem to have a way
Of wandering back to meet you
On the road to yesterday
LP35 V1
 
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 glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush.
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine in the night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
LP36 V1

 

Smiling Face

We Give Our Loved Ones

They Say There Is A Reason Poem

In dreams we see his smiling face,
And kiss his tender brow,
But in our aching hearts we know,
We have no father now.
 
The voice is now silent,
The heart is now cold,
The smile and the welcome,
That met us of old.
 
We miss him and mourn him,
In sorrow unseen,
And dwell on the memories,
Of days that have been.
 
Lonely is the home without you,
Life to us is not the same,
All the world would be like Heaven
If we could have you back again.
 
In tears we watched you sinking,
We watched you fade away,
And though our hearts were breaking,
We knew you could not stay.
 
You left behind some aching hearts,
That loved you most sincere,
We never shall, and never will,
Forget you father dear.
LP37 V1
We give our loved ones back to God,
And just as He first gave them to us,
And did not lose them in the giving,
So we have not lost them in returning
Them to Him.......
For life is eternal, Love is immortal,
Death is only a horizon...
And a horizon is nothing but the
Limit of our earthly sight.
LP38 V1
They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way we feel.
For no-one knows the heartache,
That lies behind our smiles,
No-one knows how many times,
We have broken down and cried.
Gone from home that smiling face,
Those cheerful, happy ways,
The heart that won so many friends,
In bygone, Happy days.
We want to tell you something,
So there won’t be any doubt,
You’re so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to be without.
We cannot bring the old days back.
When we were all together,
The family chain is broken now,
But memories live forever.
LP38 V1

I Am Writing This From Heaven

My Rosary

Those We Love Must Go Someday

I am writing this from Heaven,
Where I dwell with God above,
Where there’s no more tears or sadness,
There is just eternal love.
 
The day I had to leave you,
When my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me,
And said ‘I welcome you’.
 
Please do not be unhappy,
Just because I’m out of sight.
Remember that I’m with you,
Every morning, noon and night.
 
But one thing is for certain,
Though my life on earth is over,
I am closer to you now,
Than I ever was before.
 
When you are walking down the street,
And you’ve got me on your mind,
I’m walking in your footsteps,
Only half a step behind.
 
And when you feel that gentle breeze,
Or the wind upon your face,
That’s me giving you a great big hug,
Or just a soft embrace.
LP41 V1
What comfort just to clasp it,
My Rosary so dear;
Each mystery brings fresh courage
And drives away all fear.
In prayer so oft repeated,
Yet never growing old,
I read the wondrous story,
Of God’s own love untold.
Each chaplet forms a garland,
To place at Mary’s feet;
Fair buds and full-bloom roses,
Exhaling fragrance sweet.
The Crucifix which crowns it
Reminds me day by day,
To bravely bear my crosses,
Along earth’s rugged way.
I hope when life is ended,
And death shall set me free
Still twined around my fingers,
My Rosary Beads shall be.
LP47 V1
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 surely shine
to brighten up another place
more perfect... more divine.
And in the realm of Heaven where
they shine so warm and bright.
Our loved ones live forevermore
in God’s eternal light.
LP49 V1

Look for Me In Rainbows Poem

The Rose Beyond The Wall Poem

A Loved One Never Leaves You

Time for me to go now, 
I won't say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, 
way up in the sky.
In the morning sunrise 
when all the world is new,
Just look for me and love me, 
as you know I loved you.
Time for me to leave you, 
I won't say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, 
high up in the sky.
In the evening sunset, 
when all the world is through,
Just look for me and love me, 
and I'll be close to you.
It won't be forever, 
the day will come and then
My loving arms will hold you, 
when we meet again.
Time for us to part now, 
we won't say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, 
shining in the sky.
Every waking moment, 
and all your whole life through
Just look for me and love me, 
as you know I loved you.
Just wish me to be near you, 
and I'll be there with you.
LP50 V1
A rose once grew,
where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
and, as the days passed
swiftly by,
it spread its branches,
straight and tall….
One day, a beam of light
shone through a crevice
that had opened wide -
The rose bent gently
toward its warmth
then passed beyond
to the other side….
Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted -
the rose blooms there -
its beauty even greater now,
nurtured by God’s
own loving care.
LP51 V1 
A loved one never leaves you,
They're never far away.
They watch you from a distance
And guide you every day.
They do become your angel
And look down from above.
A loved one never leaves you
Because you always have their love.
LP52 V1

Road To Eternity 

All That Was Her

Do Not Weep For Me

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…
Your destination is a place,
Far greater than we know,
For some the journey’s quicker,
For some the journey’s slow.
But when the journey finally ends,
We’ll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.
LP55 V1
Where’s she gone, the one we knew,
The one we knew and loved,
Who knew us all and loved us all –
Where now is all that love? 
Where now her smile? Where now her frown?
Her bright, resounding laugh?
Ah, all are gone, by time undone;
All that was her is past.
Down the stream we drifted,
And saw her on the shore;
Around a bend we drifted,
And saw her then no more.
LP56 V1
Do not weep for me for I have not gone.
I am the wind that shakes the mighty Oak.
I am the gentle rain 
that falls upon your face.
I am the spring flower 
that pushes through the dark earth.
I am the chuckling laughter 
of the mountain stream. 
Do not weep for me for I have not gone.
I am the memory that dwells 
in the heart of those that knew me.
I am the shadow that dances 
on the edge of your vision.
I am the wild goose that 
flies south at Autumns 
call and I shall return at Summer rising.
I am the stag on the wild hills way.
I am just around the corner.
Therefore, the wise weep not.
But rejoice at the transformation 
of my Being.

Memories

They Say There Is A Reason Poem

Precious Memory

Life can never stay the same
No matter how we try
Our hands can never stop
The clock of life from ticking by
But love remains, unchanging
In the care of sorrowing hearts
For as the love of life is stilled
The love of memory starts
LP61 V1
They say there is a reason.
They say that time will heal,
But neither time or reason,
Will change the way we feel.
 
For no one knows the heartache,
That lies behind our smiles,
No one knows how many times,
We have broken down and cried.
 
We want to tell you something,
So there won’t be any doubt,
You’re so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to do without.
 
There is no night without a dawning,
No Winter without a Spring,
And beyond death’s dark horizon,
Our hearts once more will sing.
 
For those who leave us for a while,
Have only gone away
Out of a restless careworn world,
Into a “Brighter day”.
LP62 V1
The rain may wash my pain away
The wind may dry my tears
The Summer sun may heal my heart
And time subdue my fears
But nothing in the world below
Or in the Heavens above
Will ever take away
The precious memory of your love.
LP63 V1

 

When God Was Making Mothers

You’ve Just Walked On Ahead

She Never Failed To Do Her Best

When God was making mothers,
He must have made a fuss.
He spent a lot of time on one
And gave that one to us.
Of all the gifts in life,
However great or small,
To have you as our mother
Was the greatest gift of all.
Because you were so special,
No words could ever say
How much we love and miss you,
Today and every day.
LP64 V1
And I’ve got to understand
You must release the ones you love
And let go of their hand.
I try and cope the best I can
But I’m missing you so much
If I could only see you
And once more feel your touch.
Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me
Don’t worry I’ll be fine
But now and then I swear I feel
Your hand slip into mine. 
LP65 V1
Her heart was true and tender,
She worked and toiled
For those she loved,
And left them to remember.
We sat beside your bedside
Our hearts were crushed and sore.
We did our duty to the end
‘Til we could do no more.
In tears we watched you sinking
We watched you fade away,
And though our hearts were breaking
We knew you could not stay.
You left behind some aching hearts
That loved you most sincere.
We never shall and never will
Forget you Mother dear.
LP65 V1

It Was A Sudden Parting

We Sat Beside Your Bedside

If I Should Go Tomorrow 

It was a sudden parting
Too bitter to forget,
Those who loved you dearly,
Are the ones who can’t forget.
We often sit and think of you,
And think of how you died;
To think you could not say goodbye
Before you closed your eyes.
Your life was one of kindly deeds,
A helping hand for others needs,
Sincere and true in heart and mind,
Beautiful memories left behind.
The blow was hard,the shock severe,
To part with one we loved so dear;
Our loss is great, we’ll not complain
But trust in God to meet again.
Two tired eyes are sleeping,
Two willing hands are still,
The one who worked so hard for us,
Is resting at God’s will.
Our family chain is broken,
Nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one
The links shall join again.
LP67 V1
We sat beside your bedside
Our hearts were crushed and sore;
We did our duty to the end,
‘Til we could do no more.
In tears we watched you sinking,
We watched you fade away,
And though our hearts were breaking
We knew you could not stay.
You left behind some aching hearts,
That loved you most sincere.
We never shall and never will
Forget you, Mother dear.
 For many years the family chain
Was closely linked together,
But oh! That chain is broken now,
The main link gone forever.
The sunshine of our happy home,
Must always clouded be,
But Thou O Lord has sent this cross,
We bear it all for Thee.
LP68 V1
 
If I should go tomorrow 
It would never be goodbye, 
For I have left my heart with you, 
So don’t you ever cry.
The love that’s deep within me, 
Shall reach you from the stars, 
You’ll feel it from the heavens, 
And it will heal the scars.
LP69 V1

Memories

Remember Me Poem

Broken Chain Poem

Death leaves heartache
No one can heal,
Memories are treasures
No one can steal,
Some may forget you
Now that you are gone,
But we will remember
No matter how long.
You will always stay
loved and remembered,
In every way,
No tears, no verse,
Can ever say how much
we miss you every day.
LP70 V1
Don’t remember me with sadness,
Don’t remember me with tears,
Remember all the laughter,
We’ve shared throughout the years.
Now I am contented
That my life it was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile.
When you are walking down the street
And you’ve got me on your mind,
I’m walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.
So please don’t be unhappy
Just because I’m out of sight,
Remember that I’m with you
Each morning, noon and night.
LP73 V1
We little knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
LP74 V1

Until We Meet Again Poem

A Quite Prayer Poem

A Fallen Limb Poem

We think about you always 
we talk about you still,
You have never been forgotten 
and you never will. 
We hold you close within our hearts 
and there you will remain,
To walk and guide us through our lives 
until we meet again.
LP75 V1
A loving nature, a heart of gold,
The very best this world could hold.
Never selfish, always kind,
These are the memories you left behind
A silent thought a quiet prayer,
For a special person, in God’s care.
LP76 V1

 

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, 
“Grieve not for me. 
Remember the best times, 
the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely 
the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls.
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes. we’re together again.”
LP77 V1

My Precious Child

   
There’s not a day that passes
That I don’t sit and cry,
And look to Heaven for a reason
But still I don’t know why.
Couldn’t he have waited
Another year or two,
Until you were a little older
And I’d had more time with you.
Forgive me, Lord, I then say,
All these thoughts are wrong,
There had to be a reason,
And I know I must be strong.
You’re in the arms of Jesus now
And I know that you’ll be fine,
But I wish with all my heart,
That those arms could be mine.
LP78 V1
