Memorial Poetry During Your Time Of Loss


“I am Still With You”

If it seems that I am far away on this empty and solemn day,

Just open your heart and know it’s true,

that I am still right here with you.

If during the day things are going wrong,

please don’t feel sad and alone.

Just open your heart and know it’s true,

that I am still right here with you.

When nighttime falls and the day is done.

If you are feeling alone and sleep won’t come,

Just open your heart and know it’s true,

that I am still right here with you.

Close your eyes, and feel the warm embrace.

Sleep peacefully in the wings of grace.

If sadness finds you in the morning light, if you feel alone,

don’t give up trying!

Hold this feather close and know it’s true,

that I am always here with you.

"The Final Flight"

In Loving Memory of (your loved ones name)

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,

I'm following the path God laid for me.

I took his hand when I heard his call,

I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,

To laugh, to love, to work, to play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way,

I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has 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 with times of sorrow,

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My Life's been full, I savored much,

Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,

Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me,

God wanted me now, He set me free.

"With the Rustle of Wings"

In Loving Memory of my brother, John Russell

With the rustle of wings

I'll take your memories along

As I soar up to the heavens

From where they just played that song.

Just part your hands open

As you feel my beating heart.

My soul is alive as I

Now depart.

With the rustle of wings,

I'll enter the pearly gates.

I'll be with family from long ago and

For you I will wait.

Always keep this feather close

As a reminder of my souls release

And in every whisper of the wind you'll hear

the rustle of my wings.

"Carry Me Home"

My loved ones do not cry

And worry of me

For like the dove

I have been set free.

God has called me

To my mansion on high

Just there among the clouds

In the deep blue sky.

I have no pain

No suffering to do

I have been called home

And I know you will too.

So beat hard and fast

Little wings off white

And carry me home

Before the night

"Little Dove"

On the wings of this white dove

I'll set your spirit free.

Up into the big deep sky,

to heaven, where you'll be.

I know God has a plan for us,

he wants us by his side.

But it is hard for us to understand

when we are left behind.

Little dove, help lift our hearts

as we watch you go,

God is there if we just ask,

because He loves us so.

"God Saw You Getting Tired"

God saw you getting tired

When a cure was not to be.

So He wrapped His arms around you,

And whispered, "Come unto me"

You didn't deserve what you went through,

And so He gave you rest.

God's garden must be beautiful,

He only takes the best.

So when I saw you sleeping,

So peaceful and free from pain.

I could not wish you to come back,

to suffer that all again.

"Mother and Child"

In loving memory of Chereu Nicole and Javonne Katilyn

Our loved ones do not weep and worry of us...

We're being carried to the arms of our precious Jesus.

Just my baby and me on the wings of a dove...

The angels are waiting in the heavens above.

To take us to our mansion just beyond those pearly gates...

To help us get settled in where there we will wait.

For our loved ones to join us above in heavens nursery...

to see the miracle of eternal life and feel the power of Gods mercy.
