Be Comforted in Your Time of Sorrow
Sad poems tear at an already broken heart. When the teardrops fall freely and your hopes are all gone, be comforted knowing that; "Grief is a stone that bears one down, but two bear it lightly". So share your sorrow and be comforted by those dear to you.
Life is not the way it's suppose to be. It's the way it is. The way you cope with it, is what makes the difference.
A Million Times
You never said I’m leaving
You never said good-bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knew why.
A million times we’ve needed you,
A million times we’ve cried.
If love alone could’ve saved you,
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else will ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
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 ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting hush.
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.
Mary Elizabeth Frye
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
Dear Mum you were a person
Quite apart from all the rest,
You gave your ever ending Love,
You did your very best.
You listened to our problems,
And all our joys you shared,
And any time we needed you,
We always found you there.
Always there to lend a hand
In everything we’d do,
You’d help us, Guide us, Comfort us,
With a love that was so true.
We took so much for Granted,
And though we tried to show we cared,
We’ve only realized your Value,
Now we find that you’re not there.
So when you look down on us,
And you ask the reason “Why?’
Sometimes you see us hurting,
And sometimes you see us cry.
Well, It’s Just because we love you,
And it’s SO HARD to let go
Of the Dearest, and the Kindest,
Precious Mum we’ll ever know.
I can remember the day you were born,
You were so cuddly, so sweet and warm,
I kissed your cheek and touched your hair;
You gave me a disinteresting stare.
You held my finger and fell asleep,
I couldn’t believe you were mine to keep.
My reservations and fears were gone,
I was the proud mother of a beautiful son.
You filled my arms, my heart, my day –
Funny how things seem to happen that way.
I’d been afraid of your life to begin,
Then life without you I could not imagine.
I looked forward to when you would walk,
Sharing the laughter and baby talk.
I’d planned so much for you and me –
I didn’t know then it could never be.
How could I know as I held you close
That I would soon lose the one I loved most?
An Angel had been already sent
To collect the babe that was only lent.
You left my life but never my heart,
And to me the most important part
Was the treasured memory, mine to keep,
When I was your mother for just three weeks.
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 Too Long,
And not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss Me – But Let Me Go.
For this is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone,
It’s all part of the Master’s plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friend we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss Me – But Let Me Go.

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.
I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain;
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.
