Poems for a Funeral Service

The angels are here,
I heard my Dad say.
There are three on the roof
They're not leaving today.
There is one very tall one
And one to each side,
Could they possibly be my guides?
Go and get my glasses so I can see.
I think the angels are here for me.


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


They are not long, the weeping and the laughter,
Love and desire and hate;
I think they have no portion in us after
we pass the gate.

They are not long, the days of wine and roses; Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.
Ernest Dowson


Poems for a Funeral Service

They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more;
neither shall the sunlight on them, nor any heat.
for the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne
shall feed them,and shall lead them unto living Revelation; 7:16-17


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.


Turn Again to Life

If I should die and leave you here a while,
be not like others sore undone,
who keep long vigil by the silent dust.
For my sake turn again to life and smile,
nerving thy heart and trembling hand
to do something to comfort other hearts than thine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mineand I
perchance may therein comfort you.


Father, the death of (name) brings an emptiness into our lives
We are separated from him/her and feel broken and disturbed.
Give us confidence that he/she is safe
and his/her life complete with you,
and bring us together at the last to the wholeness
and fullness of your presence in heaven,
where your saints and angels enjoy you for ever and ever.
