  • Afterglow

    I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when day is gone. 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.

  • Bridge of Love

    There is a bridge of memory. From earth to heaven above. It keeps you always near us, it’s called the bridge of love. May you always walk in sunshine and God’s love around you flow, for happiness you gave us, no one will ever know. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you. The day God called you home.

  • Do Not Grieve For Me

    Don’t grieve for me, for 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 close of play and if my parting left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. 111 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 heart and share with me, God wants me now...he set me free.

  • Ecclestiates III

    To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to reap, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

  • Fill Not Your Hearts

    Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles. I’ve only gone to rest a while. Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt and given me relief. So dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am but as I used to be. Because, I will remember you all and look on with a smile. Understand in your hearts, I’ve only gone to rest awhile. As long as I have the love of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

  • Gentle Face

    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 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.

  • God Saw You Getting Tired

    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, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

  • Heartstrings

    When those we love go away, they never really leave us; they are with us now, wherever we are. Those whom we have cherished, live on forever, for love wraps itself around the heart. Although it’s difficult now, someday beyond our tears and all the world’s wrongs; beyond the clouds and all that we can see and touch, we shall all understand.

  • Indian Prayer

    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 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 cry, I am not there. I did not die.

  • Irish Blessings

    May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields, And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me: Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil: my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Remember me whenever you see roses, or seagulls sailing high in a sky of blue. Remember me whenever you see waves shining in the sun. Remember me and I’ll be remembering you! Remember me whenever you see a teardrop or meadows still wet with morning dew. Remember me when you feel love growing in your heart and remember I’ll be remembering you!

  • Some People

    Some people come into our lives and quickly go. But there are those that move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never, ever the same.

  • To Those Who Love Me

    When I am gone, just release me, let me go – so I can move into my afterglow. You mustn’t tie me down with your tears; let’s be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love, you can only guess how much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown but now it’s time I traveled alone. So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted with trust. It’s only for a while that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart. And then, when you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile and a “WELCOME HOME.”

  • We Sat Beside Your Bedside

    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.

  • When I Must Leave You

    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 foor 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!

  • When Those We Love
