In Hearts
To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die

If I Could
If I could travel back in time
I'd travel to your side
Back to the day I said 'I do'
And you made me your bride
I'd make my promises again
And wear the same gold ring
Then share another life with you
And wouldn't change a thing

Do not stand at my grave and weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
I am the sunlight on ripening grain
I am the gentle Autumn's rain
When you awake in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die

As long as hearts remember
As long as hearts remember
As long as hearts still care
We do not part with those we love
They're with us everywhere

Precious Memory
The rain may wash my pain away
The wind may dry my tears
The Summer sun may heal my heart
And time subdue my fears
But nothing in the world below
Or in the Heavens above
Will ever take away
The precious memory of your love

Mothers Love
The greatest wonders man can build
Will all in time decay
But the wonder of a Mother's love
Will never fade away

It's Strange
It's strange we don't appreciate
The things we see each day
We never know their value
Till they're cruelly snatched away
Things I took for granted then
Her voice, her smile, her touch
I always knew I loved her
But I never knew how much

Precious Flower
Lord take my tiny precious flower
Who had no time to bloom
Lift her gently in your arms
And find a little room
In the Heavenly garden
That you planted high above
Then care for her and keep her safe
Within your perfect love
Find a little corner
In a quiet sheltered place
Where she can feel the healing sun
Caress her lovely face
Give her the tender caring
That I can no longer give
Hold her with your gentle hands
And let her frangrance live
The dearest and the lovliest
Of flowers that ever grew
My precious gift from Heaven
I return, dear Lord, to you

The Candle
A candle burns bright in a window of gold
A beacon for life's weary heart
Promising beauty and splendours untold
Of a world that now keeps us apart
We travelled the path of our lives side by side
But this path you walked on your own
To a world where no pain and no suffering reside
While I stay in this world alone
So darling please tend to the candle for me
And nourish the flame lest it dies
Till the day when its radiant beauty I see
And it guides me at last to your side

I never knew a single word could alter all it touched
I never knew a word could make me cry
I never knew our last sad word would break my heart so much
I never knew.... before we said goodbye

The Star
A light went out on Earth for me
the day we said goodbye
And on that day a star was born,
the brightest in the sky
Reaching through the darkness
with its rays of purest white
Lighting up the Heavens
as it once lit up my life
With beams of love to heal
the broken heart you left behind
Where always in my memory
your lovely star will shine

The Bluebird
The Bluebird of happiness sang high above
Bringing joy to a dark world of strife
Its soft wings protected and nurtured our love
And its song was the song of our life

Now the wonderful world where our Bluebird belonged
A sad silent world has become
As that beautiful bird finished singing his song
And the white Dove of God took you home

Remember Me
To the living I am gone
To the sorrowful I will never return
To the angry I was cheated
But to the happy I am at peace

And to the faithful I have never left
I can not speak but I can listen
I can not be seen but I can be heard

So as you stand upon the shore
Gazing at the beautiful sea
Remember me

As you look in awe at a mighty forest
And its grand majesty
Remember me

Remember me in your heart
In your thoughts
And your memories of the times we loved
The times we cried
The battle I fought
And the times we laughed
For if you always think of me
I will have never gone.

Death Is Nothing At All
Death is nothing at all
It does not count
I have only slipped away into the next room
Nothing has happened
Everything remains exactly as it was
I am I, and you are you,
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged Whatever we were to each other that we are still
Call me by the old familiar name
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was
There is absolute and unbroken continuity
What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near
just around the corner
All is well
Nothing is hurt, nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again

God Saw You
God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be.
So He wrapped his arms around you,
and whispered, "Come to me".
You didn't deserve what you went through,
So He gave you rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.

Remember Me
Remember me as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so will you be
Prepare yourself to follow me

Weep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

My Journeys Just Begun
Don't think of me as gone away
My journey's just begun
Life holds so many facets
This earth is but one

Just think of me as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years

Think of how I must be wishing
That you could know today
How nothing but your sadness
Can really go away

And think of me as living
In the hearts of those I touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And I know I was loved so much

Little Bishop
Fur grey as light
on a January dawn
Warm as a falling tear
Eyes blue and hopeful
as a high-summer morn
A spirit that knew no fear
Little Bishop, don't worry
Go on, climb the high stair
Its time to forget the below
But remember this please
as you pass the last step
Tell Lindsay that Glenn says hello

In a ritual seven millennia old,
I caught your final breath.
With warm lips pressed against yours, cold,
I caught it, your departing soul.
In a ritual seven millennia old,
I spoke the words and closed your eyes,
but knew I had you safe inside.
And there you stayed till suns last ray
departed and from blackest night
Orion shone and called you home.
In a ritual seven millennia old,
you live, even in death.

An Angel Brushed My Shoulder
An angel at my shoulder heard
the whisper of goodbye
Offering eternity as life slipped silent by
So peacefilly it seemed in sleep
You yielded to the love
That reached across my shoulder
To lift you high above
But still you are beside me
and with certainty I know
The hands I can no longer hold
Will guide me as I go
For in that fleeeting moment
At the touch of Heaven's embrace
As one angel brushed my shoulder
Another took it's place

Beyond The Empty Chair
Look beyond the empty chair
To know a life well spent
Look beyond the solitude
To days of true content
Cherish in your broken heart
Each moment gladly shared
And feel the touch of memory
Beyond the empty chair

Life can never stay the same
No matter how we try
Our hands can never stop
The clock of life from ticking by
But love remains, unchanging
In the care of sorrowing hearts
For as the love of life is stilled
The love of memory starts

By : Catherine Turner posted : 2004-01-18 17:29:27
Love Shines Through
Like a shadow in the moonlight
Like the whisper of the seas
Like the echoes of a melody
Just beyond our reach
In the shadow of our sorrow
Past the whisper of goodbye
Love shines through eternity
A heartbeat from our eye

Dante's Prayer
Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me
Please remember me
