Those we love

Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Everyone has their time

Everyone has their time
But why did yours have to come so soon?
There are so many people in the world
So why did God have to pick you?
They say things like this make you stronger
But how can that be?
I feel so weak inside It all feels like a dream
I didn’t get to see you
You passed away too soon
But I feel you watching over me
And someday I’ll see you again

Light of heaven

There’s magic in a Mother’s touch,
And sunshine in her smile.
There’s love in everything she does
To make our lives worthwhile.

We can find both hope and courage
Just by looking in her eyes.
Her laughter is a source of joy,
Her words are warm and wise.

There is a kindness and compassion
To be found in her embrace,
And we see the light of heaven
Shining from a Mother’s face.

Miss me, but let me go

We’ve known lots of pleasure,
At times endured pain,
We’ve lived in the sunshine
And walked in the rain.

But now we’re separated
And for a time apart,
But I am not alone-
You’re forever in my heart.

Death always seems so sudden,
And it is always sure,
But what is oft’ forgotten-
It is not without a cure.

There may be times you miss me,
I sort of hope you do,
But smile when you think of me,
For I’ll be waiting for you.

Now there’s many things for you to do,
And lots of ways to grow,
So get busy, be happy,and live your life,
Miss me, but let me go.

I have to let you go

I know I have to let you go.
How I will, I do not know.
I know that it’s your time to die.
What I don’t know is how to say goodbye.
I’ll miss you so much
I don’t know what to do.
I guess I’ll just end this poem
with a goodbye and an I love you.

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.

When I am gone, release me -let me go
I have so many things to see and do.-
You must not tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years
I gave you love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness
I thank you for the love each have shown
But now it is time I travelled alone
So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust –
It is only for a while that we must part
So bless those memories within your heart.-
I will not be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, call and I will come. –
Though you cannot see or touch me,
I will be near –
And if you listen with your heart,
You will hear –
All of my love around you, soft and clear.-
Then when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and “welcome home”

We’ve shared our lives

We’ve shared our lives these many years.
You’ve held my hand; you’ve held my heart.
So many blessings, so few tears
Yet for a moment, we must part.
The memories you’ve given me
Are times I’ve shared with my best friend
I’ll hold them, love. right here they’ll be
Until we share our lives again.

I thought of you with love today

I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too,

I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and your picture in a frame

Your memory is my keepsake
with which I’ll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart.

If love alone could’ve saved you

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

It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

We’ll always remember you

They come into our lives for such a short time-
a time we wouldn’t trade not even for a dime.

Then before you know it the years have flown by
and then all of a sudden we’re saying good-bye.

It wasn’t that long ago we said our good-byes.
We held on to you tight as you closed your eyes.

Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove
into God’s loving arms; in heaven above.

Over the days we’ve shed many tears
but the memories we have will live on for years.

We feel your presence and we know that you are near
You’re keeping us safe and calming our fears.

We think about memories from years past
when you were young and strong and ran so fast.

We remember all the great times that we all had.
How you always made us happy never made us mad.

They were the best and happiest years we had.
We’ll always look back on them and never be sad.

We look forward to the time we’ll be together again
and we thank the Lord for such a great friend

Now you run and play up in Heaven above
cradled in God’s arms covered with his love.

Playing by the Bridge waiting for the day
we come down through the meadow to the bridge to stay.

The love that you showed us we’ll never forget
because to us you’re one very special pet.

You’re like a star in the dark of night
always watching over us with the Lord’s light.

So now we take time to remember our best friend
who will always be with us even to the end.

We’ll always remember you the way you were-
one big lovable, huggable pile of fur.
