Memories In The Heart

Feel no guilt in laughter, she knows how much you care

Feel no sorrow in a smile that she’s not here to share

You cannot grieve forever, she would not want you to

She’d hope that you can carry on, the way you always do

So talk about the good times and the ways you showed you cared

The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared

Let memories surround you.

A word someone may say

Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day

That brings her back as clearly as though she were still here

And fills you with the feelings that she is always near

For if you keep these moments, you will never be apart

And she will live forever locked safe within your heart


The White Chariot

During your journey on your final flight home.

White wings will carry you and you will be flown.

To the pearly gates of Heaven, where they will usher you in.

To the feet of your Lord, your Saviour, and your friend.

He will hold you in his arms and the angels will sing.

As another one of His children is delivered by white wings.

A Silent Tear 

Just close your eyes and you will see

All the memories that you have of me

Just sit and relax and you will find

I’m really still there inside your mind

Don’t cry for me now I’m gone

For I am in the Land of Song

There is no pain, there is no fear

So dry away that silent tear

Don’t think of me in the dark and cold

For here I am, no longer old

I’m in that place that’s filled with love

Known to you all, as “UP ABOVE”

It’s a Time of Heartfelt Sadness

It’s a time of heartfelt sadness

When a loved one passes on

But know your loved one lives in joy

And peace where he (or she) has gone

Oh how much he will be missed

That’s where the sadness lies

But others who have missed him

now rejoice in Heaven’s skies

We know one day we’ll join him

Because our time on earth will flee

We’ll then live with him forever

Throughout all eternity

After Glow

I’d like the memory of me

to be a happy one.

I’d like to leave an after glow

of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo

whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times and laughing times

and bright and sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those who grieve,

to dry before the sun

of happy memories

that I leave when life is done.
