You so—‘twas heaven here with you.

Few words fit into a time of sadness and pain.
May this gesture be a sign of compassion.

then look next to you, and I will be there.

That’s why we have hands and arms,

So I wrote your name in my heart,
and that’s where it will stay, always,

It is often the little things that remain in your memory:
the peaceful moments together, a smile, a certain gesture.
As tough as it is now, these things will eventually ease the grief.

If you have to give up what you love most, there is no yesterday,
no today and no more tomorrow,
then there is no more time, there is only loneliness.

Many bright lights shine in the darkness,
We wish you strength with this great loss.
Sometimes life is heartless,
With little gesture we send our sympathies across.

My secret and sacred bird now flies
To meet the Spirit’s vacancy.
All chaos of life today dissolved;
In me a surge of ecstasy.

Gold flames within my longing heart
Invoke the cosmos’ Parent-Sun.
A tapestry of Truth unseen
Bursts forth within; the Play is begun.

Sri Chinmoy

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.

Author unknown

He’s only gone on ahead of you,
Not just left you behind.
Although you can’t be with him right now,
He lives on in your heart and mind.

The day will come when you’ll meet again
On Heaven’s distant shore,
And the two of you will walk hand in hand
Together forever more.

Author unknown

May you see God’s light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone,
May you always remember
when the shadows fall—
You do not walk alone.

Traditional Irish Blessing

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.

Leo Marks


There’s a very special garden
Where the trees of memory grow
Nurtured by the kindness
And concern that good friends show.
The roots are cherished memories Of good times in the past.
The branches tender promises that souls endure and last.
It’s a place of peace and beauty
Where bright new hopes can start
It’s memory’s lovely garden that soothes the hurting heart

Author unknown

If roses grow in heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.

Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.

Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away.
