Funeral Poems, Poetry
Rest in peace, my beloved wife.
You were a big part of my life.
All those memories that we shared together.
Those memories of us were meant to last forever.
I have always cared for you, you were my shining star.
Stars like you however, can be too far.
So whenever I look up at the glitter-covered skies.
I will always remember you, just by looking with my eyes.
Even though at some point we couldn’t get along.
I should have listened to you, I was wrong.
I hope you can hear what I’m saying, can you ever forgive me.
Without you I would have been all alone, no one but me.
I should’ve came to you for when you needed me.
But now that you’re gone, you are finally free.
Even though I might not be able to see you anymore,
I will always remember you by heart.
I will always be with you, the bond between us will never break apart.
I can’t constantly think about you though,
I have to carry on with my life.
Rest in peace, my beloved wife.

I’m so thankful that God made you my mom;
as you behold the face of our Jesus, Will you let him know;
I can’t wait to get to heaven and make my home up there!
Mom, I would love to send you flowers,
though their fading glory could never compare
to the beautiful sights of Heaven,
and your very own mansion up there.
I never thought so much about Heaven,
until you went there, I am ashamed to say.
As I have, since you’ve gone home, to that place up there
I miss your arms of love down here,
although your heart on earth could take no more,
I’m sure now, I long to see you there.
You see, this earthly home now seems more crazy here
Its glitter and glamour, can no more impress me;
that I am still here and you are not
But I know, Heaven is the place, of God’s truest riches –
Where our Father is, because He keeps all His Children there!
Since you turned and trusted in Jesus,
and lead me to do the same
an amazing thing has taken place;
Dwelling in the presence of Jesus now,
In Heaven – only because of His grace were you lead there to that place.
It’s your Best Mother’s Day in Heaven –
With everlasting joy and peace up there.
Pray for me here, till we are reunited there,
I know it will be beyond all I could ever compare.
Thank you Jesus for loving my mom, for just awhile,
then together soon
My Lord and my mom, I will be there soon, because,
you Showed me his Love here!
While, you were here, thank you Mom, I’ll soon be there.
In loving memory of my mom!

If the key to heaven is love,
then we know that Mary is there.
She was one who was never above
taking the time to share.
And if the key is faith,
in our mourning we are assured
in knowing that her fate
has surely reflected that reward.
If in authenticity the key be found,
heaven is celebrating
for now on their holy ground
is another angel in waiting.
But if the key be inspiration,
we are encouraged still,
Mary gave us all motivation
to climb up any hill.
And if happiness is the key,
we likewise have nothing to fear
The gates were opened wide
the day she went from here.
The key could very well be
found in loyalty -
and if that be the case
then she has unlocked the gates.
The golden key to heaven
to us may never be revealed,
but Mary has surely given
the model we should appeal.

Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.
And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
And as in the days when I rang his bell.
And he rang mine but we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
‘Tomorrow’ I say! ‘I will call on Tim
Just to show that I’m thinking of him.’
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner, yet miles away,
‘Here’s a telegram sir,’ ‘Tim died today.’
And that’s what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.

They told me you went to a better place
Somewhere you cant get hurt
Somewhere your life is better
They told me not to be upset cause your not here
But to be happy cause you got the chance to be
I try to be happy, I know I should
I know that I should believe everyone when then say, “It’ll be okay.”
I know I’ll be with you someday
I know this is how life is
I’ll love you
Forever & Always.

Its been way too long since we last spoke,
Seen each other, and had time to joke.
If time had permitted, i don’t think it would’ve changed,
Because god has a plan and our steps were prearranged.
I wish you were here, or at least just on earth,
Your love has no set value it is endless in worth.
When god took your hand and you took his back,
My life took a turn and i spiraled off track.
I can still feel your spirit, and you feel my pain,
But you always told me without that, there’s no gain.
For you I’ll stay strong through lightning and thunder,
Because nothing could stop you,not even six-feet under.
I hope you made it to heaven, and that you’ll wait for me,
I might just get lucky, cause tomorrow’s never guaranteed.

There he is, across the room,
Talking to the girl who rides a broom,
I sit here waiting for the bell,
To wake him from his spell,
I stare at him, he looks away,
I feel a pain that’s here to stay,
There’s the bell, we leave the room,
As I pass him my heart goes boom
My friends ask if im ok,
All I say is I feel dismay,
They say I’ll live and move on,
I don’t believe their Dead-on
If I don’t wake up one morning,
I would have been thinking of him across the room.
