Prayers and Verses

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

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.
The blow was hard, the shock severe,
To part with one we loved so dear,
Our loss is great, we’ll not complain,

But trust in God to meet again.
A silent grief that’s in our hearts,
No human eye can trace,
For many a broken heart is hid,
Beneath a smiling face.

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

If I should go tomorrow

If I should go tomorrow
It would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you,
So don't you ever cry.

The love that's deep within me,
Shall reach you from the stars,
You'll feel it from the heavens,
And it will heal the scars.

We lost a mother with a heart of gold

We lost a mother with a heart of gold,
How much we miss her can never be told,
She shared our troubles and helped us along.
If we follow her footsteps we will never go wrong.

We miss you from your fireside chair,
Your loving smile and gentle air,
Your vacant place no one can fill,
We miss you mother and always will.

She was a mother so very rare,
Content in her home and always there,
On earth she toiled, in Heaven she rests,
God bless you mother you were one of the best.

Each time we look at your picture,
You seem to smile and say,
Don’t be sad but courage take
And love each other for my sake.

O sweet Jesus, for the sake of Thy Bitter
Passion and the sorrows of Thy Immaculate
Mother have mercy on her soul, and let the light
of Thy countenance shine upon her.

Our Mother (or Father)

You can only have one mother
Patient, kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.

When other friends forsake you,
To mother you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.

As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.

Sweet Jesus, take this message,
To our dear mother up above;
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love

God 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.

Never said goodbye

You never said "I’m leaving"
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why.

A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried,
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In Life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still,
In my heart you hold a place
That no one could ever fill.

Road to Eternity

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 journeys slow.

But when the journey finally ends,
We’ll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.

Her Journey (or his)...

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.

I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one

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.

In Our Hearts

We thought of you with love today.
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.

We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in His Keeping.
We have you in our heart.

Baby Castle

In a baby castle
just beyond my eyes,
my baby plays with angel toys,
that money cannot buy.

Who am I to wish him back
into this world of strife?
No, play on my baby,
you have Eternal Life.

At night when all is silent,
and sleep forsakes my eyes,
I’ll hear his little footsteps
come running to my side.

His little hands caress me,
so tenderly and sweet,
I’ll breathe a prayer and close my eyes,
and embrace him in my sleep.

Now I have a treasure,
that rates above all others.
I have known true glory,
I am still his mother.

I'm free

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 the call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at the close of 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've 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 hearts and share with me,
God wanted me now; God set me free.

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.

Prayer to our Lady of Knock

Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland,
you gave hope to your people in a time of
distress, and comforted them in sorrow.

You have inspired countless pilgrims to
pray with confidence to your Divine Son,
remembering His promise: "Ask and you
shall receive, seek and you shall find."

Help me to remember that we are all
pilgrims on the road to heaven, fill me
with love and concern for my brothers
and sisters in Christ, especially those who live with me.

Comfort me when I am sick, lonely or depressed.
Teach me how to take part
ever more reverently in the Holy Mass.
Give me a greater love of Jesus in the
Blessed Sacrament. Pray for me now and
at the hour of my death. Amen.
Our Lady of Knock, pray for us.

The Rose Beyond the Wall

A rose once grew where all could see
Sheltered beside a garden wall
And as the days passed swiftly by
It spread its branches straight and tall.

One day a beam of light shone through
A crevice that had opened wide
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
Then passed beyond to the other side.

Now you who deeply feel its loss
Be comforted - the rose blooms there-
Its beauty even greater now
Nurtured by God's own loving care.

Non Religious Poem

Remember

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.

Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.

Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
Christina Rosetti

Something Beautiful Remains

The tide recedes but leaves behind
bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle
warmth still lingers on the land.

The music stops, and yet it echoes
on in sweet refrains.....
For every joy that passes,
something beautiful remains.
Author Unknown

Plant thou no roses at my head

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree;

Be the green grass above me
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.
Christina Rosetti

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 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 empty place.

Do Not Stand At my Grave And Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I did 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 at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
Mary Elizabeth Frye

Funeral Blues

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let airplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message "He is Dead",
Put Crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday-rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk , my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong

The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood,
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
W. H. Auden

Four Candles

The first candle represents our grief.
The pain of losing you is intense.
It reminds us of the depth of our love for you.
This second candle represents our courage.

To confront our sorrow,
To comfort each other,
To change our lives.
This third candle we light in your memory.

For the times we laughed,
The times we cried,
The times we were angry with each other,
The silly things you did,
The caring and joy you gave us.

This fourth candle we light for our love.
We light this candle that your light will always shine.
As we enter this holiday season and share this night of remembrance
with our family and friends.

We cherish the special place in our hearts
that will always be reserved for you.
We thank you for the gift
your living brought to each of us.
We love you.
We remember you.
Author Unknown

Remember Me

To the living, I am gone.
To the sorrowful, I will never return.
To the angry, I was cheated,
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.

I cannot speak, but I can listen
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard
So as you stand upon the shore
Gazing at the beautiful sea, remember me.

As you look in awe at a mighty forest
And in its grand majesty, remember me.
Remember me in your hearts,
In your thoughts, and the memories of the
Times we loved, the times we cried,
the battle we fought and the times we laughed
For if you always think of me,
I will never have gone.
Author Unknown

Goodbye, My Friend

Oh we never know where life will take us
I know it's just a ride on the wheel
And we never know when death will shake us
And we wonder how it will feel

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the time together through all the years
Will take away these tears
It's okay now
Goodbye my friend

I've seen a lot things that make me crazy
And I guess I held on to you
We could've run away and left well maybe
But it wasn't time and we both knew

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the love you gave me through all the years
Will take away these tears
I'm okay now
Goodbye my friend

Life's so fragile and love's so pure
We can't hold on but we try
We watch how quickly it disappears
And we never know why

But I'm okay now
Goodbye my friend
You can go now
Goodbye my friend
Linda Ronstadt

Because I Could Not Stop For Death

Because I could not stop for death
He kindly stopped for me
The carriage held but just ourselves
And immortality.

We slowly drove - he knew no haste
And I had put away
My labor and my leisure too,
For his civility

We passed the school, where children strove
At recess - in the ring
We passed the fields of gazing grain
We passed the setting sun

Or rather - he passed us
The dews drew quivering and chill
For only gossamer, my Gown
My tippet - only tulle

We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground
The roof was scarcely visible
The cornice - in the Ground

Since then - 'tis centuries - and yet
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity
Emily Dickinson

Two willing hands are still;

Tears to Heaven

If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane,
I’d walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again.

It does not take a special day

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

We cannot bring the old days back

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

and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you -
No one can ever know.
