Bereavement Poems

**

She was so very, very special
And was so from the start
You held her in your arms
But mainly in your heart

And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
Her life did ripples make
And touched the lives of all.

She's gone to play with angels
In heaven up above
So keep your special memories
And treasure. them with love

Although your darling son, daughter, grandchild
Was with you just a while
He'll (She'll) live on in your heart
With a sweet remembered smile

**

A little faith will bring your soul to heaven;
A great faith will bring heaven to your soul.
Charles Spurgeon

Bereavement Poems

Time waits for no man is the saying
So we ask for strength whilst we are praying
Please look after our loved one and let us know
that she's/he's alright
And maybe one day once again our lives will be bright
Maggie-May

**

Perhaps her time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
If her parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.

**

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.

Spending Christmas with Jesus Christ This Year Poem

I see the countless Christmas trees
Around the world below,
With tiny lights like heaven's stars
Reflecting in the snow.

The sight is so spectacular
Please wipe away that tear
For I'm spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs
That people hold so dear
But earthly music can't compare
With the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you
The joy their voices bring
For it's beyond description
To hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me,
Trust God and have no fear
For I'm spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you of the splendor
Or the peace here in this place.
Can you imagine Christmas
With our Savior, face to face?

May God uplift your spirit
As I tell Him of your love
Then pray for one another
As you lift your eyes above.

So let your hearts be joyful
And let your spirits sing
For I'm spending Christmas in Heaven
And I'm walking with the king!
Wanda Bencke.

Bereavement Poems

Safely Home

I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and suffering is over
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.

And he came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread
And with Jesus' arm to lean on
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's will.

There is still work waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is completed,
He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

**

He who learns must suffer.
And even in our sleep
pain that cannot forget
falls drop by drop upon the heart,
and in our own despair,
against our will,
comes wisdom to us by the grace of God.
Aeschylus

Bereavement Poems

While we are mourning the loss of our friend,
others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil
John Taylor

**

Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing
save the limit of our sight
Rossiter Worthington Raymond.

Goodbye

I always took for granted,
what I thought I'd never lose.
Because I never thought it would happen,
until I heard the dreaded news.
They say you were chosen for his garden,
His preciously hand picked bouquet.
God really needed him,
That's why he couldn't stay.
Saying goodbye is never easy,
It's the hardest thing to do.
But what hurts me even more
Is not the chance to say it to you.
So today, Jesus, as you are listening
in your home above;
Would you go and find my dad,
And give him all my love!
Tammy Marie Denue
