Poems for a Funeral
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Life brings tears, smiles and memories.
The tears dry, the smile fades,
but the memories live on forever.

Gone from our sight, but never our memories.
Gone from our touch, but never our hearts

Although no words can really help
To ease the loss you bear
Just know that you are very close In every thought and prayer.

Rest in Peace

I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death.
They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make.
Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories.
We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched
by having shared their love -
Leo Buscaglia

Funeral Poems

As you comprehend this profound loss, let yourself cry
knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens.

Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in heaven
where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down
upon us to let us know they are happy.

Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear,
just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.

Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.

May the memories you have keep your soul full and
the love that surrounds you help your heart heal.
