Our pick for today will be a funeral poem for grandparents - God's Garden Poem by Melissa Shreve.

The writer wrote this poem for her grandmother after she passed away due to suffering in pain.

It clearly depicts how we never want to lose our grandparents, but we cannot also bear to see them in pain for a long time. This poem talks about God being able to see your grief-stricken face that has gone through innumerable sufferings, mentally and physically. But, now you have lost the inner strength of bearing that pain. Hence, he is looking for an empty place in his beautiful garden so that you can get there to rest.

God was able to see that you were in very intense pain this time, and your body cannot withstand it. Hence, there was no chance that you will get well on the earth. The roads of life were becoming tougher and tougher. Thus, God closed your weak eyes for a while and took you away from us.

It felt very bad to lose you, my dearest grandpa/grandma. But, a part of mine went away with you, the day god took you to your home. The home is God's place where you get relief from all the pains and sufferings.

This funeral poem written by Melissa Shreve is a sweet goodbye note that you can present for your granny or grandpa's funeral. It mentions how much you are going to miss them forever.

God's Garden is certainly one of the most loved sad poems that can make you cherish your grandma and grandpa forever!

God's Garden Poem sad loss poem original version 

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.
