Funeral Poems

My heart's still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.

Funeral Poems

The funeral bell is ringing a reminder of our mortality

Farewelling a deceased soul one day 'twill ring for me

Ringing in the stillness of this cool Autumn day

Across the rural city in the morning damp and gray.

The funeral bell is pealing for one a last farewell

And few sounds sadder than the slow peals of the loud funeral bell

Above the streets and houses it echoes to the sky

For one bound for her or his last resting place the cemetery nearby.

The peewees in the town park distinctive in their call

And the magpie on a wattle pipe on this cool morning in the Fall

And for one who will not breathe again the eulogy is read

And the funeral bell is tolling in memory of the dead.

The funeral bell is ringing for one a last goodbye

And on the clock of our mortality the hours just seem to fly

Respect to the departed is all that we can pay

And for each and everyone of us a final night and day.

If tears could build a stairway

and thoughts a memory lane

I'd 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.

My heart's still active in sadness

And secret tears still flow

What it meant to lose you

No one can ever know.

But now I know you want us

To mourn for you no more

To remember all the happy times

Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten

I pledge to you today

A hallowed place within my heart

Is where you'll always stay.

God knows why, with chilling touch,

Death gathers those we love so much,

And what now seems so strange and dim,

Will all be clear, when we meet Him.

I Knew you for a Moment

Lilacs at my funeral

Lilacs when I’m dead

Lilacs in my coffin

Placed gently by my head

Lilacs at my funeral

Lilacs when I’m gone

Lilacs to help send me

On my journey home

Lilacs at my funeral

Lilacs for my grave

Lilacs instead of roses

Think of the money you will save

Does the sun shine less bright or the moon lose it's glow?

Have the rivers stopped running, or the tides ebb and flow?

The flowers still bloom and the birds are in song,

but my life's not the same something is wrong.

I'm cast adrift; I'm lost at sea,

my anchor is gone taken from me.

How will I manage with life's ups and downs,

without you Mam to smooth away frowns?

A Mam in a million how lucky we were.

Crazy, but I thought you'd always be there.

Poems For Funerals

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 will come back

Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her

Or you can be full of the love that 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 is 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 would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Our memories build a special bridge

When loved ones have to part

To help us feel were with them still

And soothe a grieving heart

They span the years and warm our lives

Preserving ties that bind

Our memories build a special bridge

And bring us peace of mind

When I am dead, my dearest,

Sing no sad songs for me;

Plant thou no roses at my head,

Nor shady cypress tree:

With showers and dewdrops wet;

And if thou wilt, remember,

And if thou wilt, forget..

I shall not see the shadows,

I shall not feel the rain;

I shall not hear the nightingale

Sing on, as if in pain;

And dreaming through the twilight

That doth not rise nor set,

Haply I may remember

And haply may forget.

Funeral Poems For Dad

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.

We'll always remember

that special smile,

that caring heart,

that warm embrace,

you always gave us.

You being there

for Mom and us

through good and bad times,

no matter what.

We'll always remember

you Dad because

they'll never be another one

to replace you in our hearts,

and the love we will always

have for you.

The love we have for Granddad

Will never fade away.

We’ll think of him, our special friend

Throughout each passing day.

We’ll walk into the room

And see his empty chair;

Although we know he’s resting,

We’ll feel his presence there.

The memories of his laughter,

His warm and loving smile,

His eyes so full of happiness,

His heart that of a child.

Memories are forever

Be they laughter or of tears,

Memories we will treasure

Through all the forthcoming years.

A special dad is hard to find,

You dad I'm keeping in my mind,

I wished you could have stayed forever,

But I will never forget you oh not ever.

If dreams weren't dreams and dreams came true,

I wouldn't be here I'd be with you.

Distance is one thing that keeps us apart,

But dad you will always remain in my heart.

A special smile, a special face, a special someone I can't replace,

I love you and I always will,

You filled a space that no one will ever replace.
