Poems

It isn’t easy to choose the poem that expresses how you feel about your loved one, and how they touched your life and the lives of the people around them. Here are a few to get you started.

One at Rest

Think of me as one at rest for me you should not weep,

I have no pain no troubled thoughts for I am just asleep.

The living thinking me that was, is now forever still.

And life goes on without me as time forever will.

If your heart is heavy now because I’ve gone away,

Dwell not long upon it friend for none of us can stay.

The answer to life’s riddle in life I never knew,

I go with hope that now I will and even so will you.

Oh, foolish, foolish me that was, I who was so small,

to have wondered even worried at the mystery of it all.

And in my fleeting life span, as time went rushing by,

I found some time to hesitate, to laugh, to cry.

Matters it now if time began, if time will ever cease?

I was here, I used it all and now I am at peace.

Miss Me – But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me,

I want no rites in a gloom-filled room,

Why cry for a soul set free!

Miss me a little – but not for long

And not with your head bowed low.

Remember the love that we once shared,

Miss me, but let me go.

For this journey that we all must take

And each must go alone;

It’s all a part of the Master’s plan

A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart

Go to the friends we know,

And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.

Miss me, but let me go.

– Edgar Albert Guest (1881-1959)

Life Is But A Stopping Place

Life is but a stopping place,

A pause in what’s to be,

A resting place along the road,

to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys.

Different paths along the way,

We all were meant to learn some things,

but never meant to stay…

Our destination is a place,

Far greater than we know.

For some the journey’s quicker,

For some the journey’s slow.

And when the journey finally ends,

We’ll claim a great reward,

And find an everlasting peace,

Together with the lord

Time Will Ease The Hurt

The sadness of the present days

is locked and set in time,

and moving to the future

is a slow and painful climb.

But all the feelings that are now

so vivid and so real

can’t hold their fresh intensity

as time begins to heal.

No wound so deep will ever go

entirely away

yet every hurt becomes

a little less from day to day.

Nothing can erase the painful

imprints on your mind

but there are softer memories

that time will let you find.

Though your heart won’t let the sadness

simply slide away

the echoes will diminish

even though the memories stay

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me – David Romano

If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see,

If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,

while thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you care for me, and how much I care for you,

and each time that you think of me I know you’ll miss me too;

But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,

that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand,

and said my place was ready in heaven far above,

and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,

for all life, I’d always thought I didn’t want to die.

I had so much to live for and so much yet to do.

it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.

I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for a while,

I’d say goodbye and hug you and maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realised that this could never be,

for emptiness and memories would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things that I’d miss come tomorrow.

I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through Heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home.

When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden throne,

He said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you,

Today your life on earth is past but here it’s starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last.

and since each day’s the same, there’s no longing for the past.

But you have been so faithful, so trusting, so true.

Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do.

And you have been forgiven and now at last you’re free.

So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me?”

So if tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart,

for every time you think of me, please know I’m in your heart.
