When someone we love passes we look to find ways to express ourselves and
finding memorial poems for a funeral or a sympathy card can sometimes be difficult if you are looking
for something that speaks about the deceased.
Allow these memorial poems to help you find
the words you need to express the way you are feeling or to help someone else deal with the grief they
are feeling. Memorial poems are best when written with some knowledge of the deceased but sometimes
you can find some generic memorial poems that speak right to you.
Think of memorial poems as
a way to reach out with loving memories. Another way for memorial poems to be effective is for them to
discuss where the loved one is now. If they were a believer in God, memorial poems can be a great way to
remind them that this loving person is not gone forever, just for now.
However you decide to use,
find or write your memorial poems, we hope this page is helpful now and in the future
for each of your memorial poems needs.
Just a thought of sweet remembrance,
Just a memory fond and true; Just the love of sweet devotion Of the ones who
think of you. No one knows how much we miss you; No one knows the tears we
shed. But in Heaven, we hope to meet you, Where no farewell words are said.
No stain was on her little heart; Sin had
not entered there. And innocence slept sweetly on, That pale white brow so
fair. She was too pure for this cold earth, Too beautiful to stay. And so
God’s Holy Angel bore, Our darling one away. We loved her while we had her,
We tried so hard to save; No spot on earth is dearer now, Than our darling’s
For My Wife
The month of December again is here, To
me the saddest of the year; For it was on this December day, That my dear
wife passed away. I never will forget you, wife, While in this life I stay;
My heart has never been the same, Since you have passed away. We do not know
the pain you bore, We did not see you die; We only knew you passed away, And
could not say good-bye.
Poet: Louis C. Yoos
She is blooming in God’s garden, Among
the lilies fair; God saw she was too good on earth, So He transplanted her
up there. Can I help but feel so lonely, When her
voice I do not hear; For no words were ever sweeter Then the words of mother
dear. Though I see your face so sweetly near,
With tender love alight, I think I hear you say, I am over here,
all will be right.
Heaven Can Heal
Earth has no sorrows that heaven cannot
heal. I think of her in silence, no eye can see me weep. But many silent
tears are shed when others are asleep. What would I give to clasp her hand,
Her happy face to see. To hear her voice and see her smile that meant so
much to me. The years may wipe out many things, but this they wipe out
never. The memory of those happy days when we were all together.
Book Of Life
We may write our names in albums, We may
trace them in the sand; We may chisel them in marble With a firm and
skillful hand. But these pages soon are sullied, Soon each name will fade
away; Ever monument will crumble, As all earthly hopes decay. But mother
dear, there is an album, Filled with leaves of snowy white, Where no name is
ever tarnished, But forever pure and bright. In the book of life, God’s
album, I know your name is wrote with care, And may all who read this Write
their names forever there.
Rest In Peace
Rest in peace, thy cares are ended. Rest in peace,
thy work is done. Thou art gone where those who loved you. Soon are coming,
one by one.
Keep Her Jesus
Keep her Jesus, in they keeping Till I
reach that shining shore. Then, O Master, let me have her, Love and keep her
as before. Her face my mind will ever see, Forgotten she will never be.
Gone But Not Forgotten
Gone but not
forgotten. How I miss you, miss you more than I can tell; Every hour and day
that passes Brings me nearer you to dwell; Friends may think I'll soon
forget you And my wounded heart be healed, But they little know the sorrow
That is within my heart concealed.
Oh, could I see my pet once more,
And hold him on my knee.
And feel his loving kiss on my hand,
How happy would I be.
A wonderful mother, woman, and aid, One
who was better, God perfectly made. A wonderful worker, so loyal and true.
One in a million, that mother was you.
Gone to the light that shines so
fair; Gone from the earth of sorrow and care. Resting those hands that did
their best; Gone, dear mother, gone to rest.
In the home of fadeless beauty, You
are now a shining start, Dwelling in the Holy City With the gates of gold
ajar. For us, he always did his best, So, God, grant him eternal rest.
A rose that is sweetest and fairest.
In the end, is killed by frost.
But the flower that was dearest and rarest
Is the loved one that we have lost.
Our hearts today are sad and lonely,
And our thoughts are always of you; How I loved you and how I miss you, No
one but God in Heaven knows.
Just in your judgment, always right.
Honest and liberal, ever upright. Loved by your friends and all who you
knew. Our wonderful mother, that mother was you.
Farewell, alas, our
father, dear; Thy form lies cold and still; Thy death has caused a vacant
place, This world can never fill.
God Called You Away
Poet: E. H.
The grief I suffered at your loss, When
God called you away, Though its been one year ago It remains as fresh as
though ‘twas yesterday. If I could have my dearest wish fulfilled And take
my choice of all earth’s treasures too. Or choose from Heaven whatsoever I
will, I would ask for you.
Perpetual Light Shine
We saw his sufferings and heard his
sighs, With throbbing hearts and weeping eyes. But now he calmly sleeps at
last, All pain, all grief, all suffering past. Eternal rest, grant unto him,
Oh Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him.
The World Seems Like Another Place
Weary, sad and heavy hearted, Thus we
pass each lonely day, For our dear mother has gone before to show the way.
Just nine years of saddest longing for it is veiled In that bright dawning
where faith leads on to thee. Thus ‘tis but a step to Heaven, The house of
dear ones gone beyond. This blessed assurance to us is given, Therefore I
pray Thy will be done. Gone, dear mother, gone forever. How we miss your
smiling face, But you left us to remember, None on earth can take your
place. A happy home we once enjoyed, How sweet the memory still; But death
has left a loneliness the world can never fill. What would we give her hand
to clasp, Her patient face to see. To hear her voice, to see her smile, As
in the days that used to be. When a mother breathes her last farewell, The
stroke means more than tongue can tell. The world seems like another place,
Without the smile of her dear face.
No one knows the bitter pain, I have
suffered since I lost you, Life has never been the same, In my heart, your
memory lingers, Sweetly tender, fond and true; There is not a day, dear
brother, That I do not think of you.
We Miss Her
God knows how much we miss her, Never
shall her memory fade. Loving thoughts shall ever wander, To the spot where
she is laid. Writer Unidentified
You are not forgotten, brother dear,
Nor ever will you be.
As long as our lives and memory lasts,
We will remember thee.
Dear To Our Memory
Forgotten by some you may be, But dear to
our memory you will be. Your loving smile and kindly ways are pleasant to
recall. You had a kind word for everyone and died beloved by all.
The year may wipe out many things, But
this they wipe out never. The memory of those happy days, When we were all
Poet: S. I. Cockey
Some may think I forget you, Though on
earth you are no more. But in memory, you were with me, As you always were
Left A Memory
They left a memory fair and sweet, Its
fragrance can never die; Their lives were short but still complete, When
God called them on high. Yes, we loved them oh, how dearly, Words can
faintly love express; Our fond hearts beat too sincerely Even in death to
love them less.
Just a thought of sweet remembrance, Just
a memory fond and true, Just the love and sweet devotion, Of the one who
thinks of you. Author Unknown
Poet: Julie Hebert
I may not be so lucky, because I do not have you here,
But I consider myself lucky, for the memorial you've left behind.
My house is a memorial, for all the times you've spent with me,
My backyard is a memorial, for all the times you've watched me play.
Our car is a memorial, for all the trips we took together,
My lunch box is a memorial, for all the lunches you packed for me.
My bed is a memorial, for all the times you tucked me in,
My forehead is a memorial, for all the kisses you place on it.
Everywhere I look, I am reminded of you.
You will never be forgotten, for all the memories you have given me.
