God's Garden 

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.

He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest,
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.

He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered “Peace be thine”.

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

A Million Tears

A bouquet of beautiful memories,
Sprayed with a million tears,
Wishing God could have spared you,
If just for a few more years.

It does not take a special day,
For us to think of you,
Each Mass we hear, each prayer we say,
Is offered up to you.

We cannot bring the old days back,
When we were all together,
The family chain is broken now,
But memories live forever.

It was a sudden parting,
Too bitter to forget,
Only those who loved you,
Are the ones who will never forget.

Remember Me

Don’t remember me with sadness,
Don’t remember me with tears,
Remember all the laughter,
We’ve shared throughout the years.

Now I am contented
That my life it was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile.

When you are walking down the street
And you’ve got me on your mind,
I’m walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.

So please don’t be unhappy
Just because I’m out of sight,
Remember that I’m with you
Each morning, noon and night.

Your 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 a 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.

Her/His Journey

Don’t think of her as gone away
her journey’s just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.

Just think of her as resting
from the sorrow and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today,
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost
and she was loved so much.


Now I am contented
That my life it was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile.

When you are walking down the street
And you’ve got me on your mind,
I’m walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.

And when you face the gentle breeze
Or the wind upon your face,
I’m giving you a great big hug
Or just a soft embrace.

So please don’t be unhappy
Just because I’m out of sight,
Remember that I’m with you
Every morning, noon and night.

My Journey

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.

I Am Home In Heaven

I am home in Heaven, dear ones:
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this Everlasting Light.

All the pain and grief are over!
Every restless yearning past;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely Home in Heaven at last.

Dear one, do not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,
Pray to trust Our Father’s Will.

When your work is completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh! the rapture of that meeting!
Oh, the joy to see you come.

Miss Me But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the
road and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free!

Miss me a little, but not too long
and not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once
shared, miss me but let me go.

For this journey we all must take
and each must go alone,
It’s all part of the Master plan
a step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
go to the friends we know,
and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me, but let me go.

Broken Chain

We little knew that day
God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you
You did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories
Your love is still our guide,
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.

Death Is Nothing At All

Death is nothing at all - I have only
Slipped away into the next room.
Whatsoever we were to each other,
That we are still.

Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way
Which you always used to.

Laugh as we always laughed at the
Little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be the household word
That it always was.

Let it be spoken without effort.
Life means all that it has ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was,
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of your mind
because I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner. All is well.

Softly In The Morning / Evening

Softly in the morning
You heard a gentle call,
You took the hand God offered you
And saw your tired face.

And quietly left us all.
The day you left us,
our hearts just broke in two,
The smallest part is still with us,

And the biggest part with you.
For the rest of our lives we will miss you,
Our secret tears still flow,
Oh, how we really loved you,

No one will ever know.
We miss your smile, your joking ways
We miss the things, you used to say,
And when old times we do recall,

It’s when we miss you most of all.
You were always there when we needed you,
No task too great or small,
With loving heart and willing hands,
For us you did it all.

Foot Prints In The Sand

One night I dreamed I was walking
along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.

Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,

when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow
or defeat, I could see one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, "You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.

But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.

Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied, "The times when you
have seen only one set of footprints
in the sand, is when I carried you."

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

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 glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain,
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift, uplifting rush.

Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine in the night,
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die.

He Only Takes The Best

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.

Afer Glow

I'd like the memory of me
To be a happy one,
I'd like to leave an after glow
Of smiles when life is done.

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.

Stairway To Heaven

If tears could build a stairwell
And memories were a lane,
I would 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.

We Hold You Close

We hold you close within our hearts
And there you shall remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.

So rest in peace dear loved one
And thanks for all you’ve done,
We pray that God has given you
The crown you’ve truly won.

Death Leaves A Heartache

Death leaves heartache
No one can heal,
Memories are treasures
No one can steal.
Some may forget you
Now that you are gone,
But we will remember
No matter how long.
You will always stay
loved and remembered,
In every way,
No tears, no verse,
Can ever say how much 
We miss you every day.

We Sat Beside Your Bedside

We sat beside your bedside, 
Our hearts were crushed and sore; 
We did our duty to the end, 
Until 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.

When Those We Love

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.
