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.
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.
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”
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.
Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul’s sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul’s at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed.
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

For attractive lips,
speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes,
seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure,
share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
The smile on your face
Even when times are gray
Your smile stays with me
As I start my day
The warmth in your heart
I feel it all the time
And knowing that the love in it
Truly is all mine
The loving words you speak
Make my problems disappear
You make me feel so good
I always want you near
Actually, there are many things
That I love about you
But most of all I love You!
Happy Birthday My Love!
We’ve had our arguments
Over the years
And some of them
Brought me to tears
But more important
Are the good times we’ve shared
The things you’ve done
To show me you care
Yes, we have arguments now and then
But our love endures through them all
And most of them I can’t even recall
But all the good times we shared
Are buried deep within in my heart
Loving memories dear to me
Memories from which I’ll never part
I love you dearly
This you already know
Our love is true
And daily it continues to grow
You’re a thoughtful person
With a loving heart
Your kindness for others
Is only a part
You have an ear
That hears my cries
You know me so well
You can read my eyes
I don’t know what I’d do
If we ever lost touch
Because you are someone
I need so much
