My Journey Poem
Monday, 18 October 2021 | Admin
It is very obvious and normal for people to have negative perspectives about death. We believe that this ‘life’ that we live today and the ambitions that we achieve in this world are our end goals. However, this entire life and our achievements are a mirage. They are not that all counts, for we are the children of almighty, and this life is just a phase for us to get back to him. Hence, do not feel hopeless or devastated when you lose your beloved people since they were destined to leave this world.
Memorial Card Shop has always understood the plight of a person after losing their family members and friends. Thus, here is one of our best funeral poems to say goodbye to your dear ones as they enter a new world. We hope that you will go through this poem and connect to the people you are missing after their departure. You will be glad knowing that they are in a much better place. This funeral poem for dad, mom, grandparents, or siblings can always be on the list for the memorial service.
‘My Journey’ – this one is a brief yet meaningful funeral blues poem written by the author to portray life on earth as a phase that humans need to pass through to reach the almighty. This heartwarming poem can certainly be read out during the funeral service of an individual who was deeply inclined towards the Lord and had an immense belief in the Bible readings.
The poem begins by saying that ‘Life is a stopping place.’ It depicts that life is just a resting phase of our existence and can be referred to as a ‘pause.’ In our journey to reach eternity, this life on earth is a phase where we stop by for a while.
On this earth, be it in billions or millions, each of us has our journeys that are different from one another. We walk through different paths of life along the way but end up doing the same thing. From birth to life, we have lived it similarly, except that our journeys have been varying. But, after all of this, none of us was ever meant to stay back here.’
We all have a destination that is far different from our dreams, goals, and ambitions. It is far bigger than what we can ever think and know. For some of us, this voyage of life is smaller, and hence, it ends quicker whereas, for some, it is longer, and hence they stay on earth for a long time.
But, when this journey finally ends, all of us will get rewards for our existence on earth. This reward will be a long-lasting peace and relief for us, which is togetherness with the Almighty himself.
That was it! Hope, this turns out to be one of the best poems to comfort the grieving for such a loss.
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.
