In Memoriam And Remembrance Verses And Poems

For Your Father, Dad, Grandad, Grandfather


You often said that we would miss you,

How those words have proved you true.

We lost the one and only Dad,

Dear Dad, when we lost you.


If we had all the world to give

We’d give it, yes, and more…

To hear his voice, see his smile

And greet him at the door.

But all we can do dear father

Is go and tend your grave

And leave behind tokens of love

To the best Dad God made.


Dad is such a special word

A word that brings to mind

A big warm smile, a helping hand

A way of being kind.

Devotion to the family

A word of patience too

“Dad” is such a special word

Because it stands for “You”.


It’s so strange that those in need

And those we love the best

Are just the ones God called away

And took them home to rest

But every time I think of Dad

I seem to hear God say:

“Have faith and trust my Promise”

You’ll meet again someday.


What we’d give if we could say

Hello, Dad, in the same old way

To hear your voice and see your smile

To sit with you and chat a while.

So if you have a father

Cherish him with care

For you’ll never know the heartache

Till you see his vacant chair.


In Loving Memory Dad

You held my hand when I was small,

You caught me when I fell.  

The hero of my childhood,

And of latter years as well.  

Every time I think of you,

Me heart just fills with pride,

And though I’ll always miss you Dad,

I know you’re by my side.  

In laughter and in sorrow,

In sunshine and in rain,

I know you’re watching over me,

Until we meet again.


Memories of Dad

I will take this special moment

To turn my thoughts to Dad

Thank him for the home he gave

For all the things we had.

We think about the fleeting years

Too quickly, gone for good

It seems like only yesterday

I’d go back if I could.

A time when Dad was always there,

No matter what the weather.

Always strong when things went wrong

He held our lives together.

He strived so hard from day to day

And never once complained.

With steady hands, he worked so hard

And kept the family name.

He taught us that hard work pays off,

You reap just what you sow.

He said that if you tend your crops,

Your field will overflow.

My life has been bountiful

He taught me how to give

In his firm and steadfast way

He taught me how to live.

Dad dwells among the angels now

He left us much too soon

He glides across a golden field

Above the harvest moon.

I see him in the summer rain,

He rides upon the wind

And when my path is beaten down

He picks me up again.


Dad is gone but not forgotten

And, as dawns another year

In lonely hours of thinking

Thoughts of him are always near.

Many think the wound is healed

But little do they know of the sorrow

That lies in the heart concealed.


Please. God, forgive a silent tear

A fervent wish our Dad was here

There are others, yes we know

But he was ours and we loved him so.

Dear God, please take a message

To our Father in Heaven above

Tell him how much we miss him

And give him all our love.


Dear Father, You are not forgotten

Though on earth you are no more

Still in memory you are with us

As you always were before.


In our hearts your memory lingers

Sweetly tender, fond and true

There is not a day dear Father

That we do not think of You.


Your smile has gone forever

And your hand we cannot touch

We have so many memories

Of you, Dad, we loved so much.


An understanding heart

An intelligent mind

We miss you Dad

You were one of a kind.


God Knows how much I miss him

My heart cannot tell what to say

God alone knows how I miss him

In a home that is lonesome today.


His charming ways and smiling face,

Are a pleasure to recall

He had a kindly word for each

And died beloved to all.


A part of me he took with him

But his love he left me to keep

So we will never really be parted

The bond between us is too deep.


Looking back with memories

Upon the path you trod

We bless the hours we had with you

And leave the rest with God.


We lost a father with a heart of gold

How much we miss him can never be told

He shared our troubles & helped us along

If we follow his footsteps, we will never go wrong.


What would I give to clasp his hand,

His happy face to see,

To hear his voice, and see his smile

That meant so much to me.

In Loving Memory Cards We Miss You Dad And Always Will

The rolling stream of life rolls on.

But still the vacant chair

Recalls the love, the voice, the smile

Of the one who once sat there.


Nothing can ever take away

The love a heart holds dear.

Fond memories linger every day,

Remembrance keeps him near.


He had a nature you could not help loving,

And a heart that was purer than gold,

And to those who knew him and loved him

His memory will never grow cold.


More and more each day we miss him

Friends may think the wound is healed

But they little know the sorrow

Lying within our hearts concealed


You’re not forgotten, Father dear

Nor ever shall you be

As long as life and memory last

I shall remember thee.


His memory is as dear today

As in the hour he passed away.


The blow was great, the shock severe

We little thought his death so near

Only those that have lost can tell

The sorrow of parting without farewell


We often think of days gone by

When we were all together.

A shadow o’er our lives is cast,

Our loved one gone forever.


And have you gone, forever gone

And left us here to weep

Till we are called to follow you,

And in the grave to sleep.

Yet since you could no longer stay

To cheer us with your love,

We hope to meet you again in

The bright world above.


One precious to our hearts has gone,

The voice we loved is stilled;

The place made vacant in our home

Can never more be filled.

Our Father in His wisdom called

The one His love had given,

And so on earth the body lays

His soul is safe in Heaven.


No one knows how much I miss you,

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 Father,

That I do not think of you.


We think of him in silence,

No eyes can see us weep;

But still within our aching hearts,

His memory we keep.


Silent is the voice we loved to hear;

Too far away for sight or speech,

But not too far for thought to reach.

Sweet to remember him who once was here,

And who, though absent, is just as dear.


A beautiful memory, dearer than gold,

Of a Dad whose worth can never be told,

There’s a place in my heart no one can fill,

I miss you, Dad, and always will.


I never ask for miracles,

But today just one would do,

To see the front door open and

See our Dad walk through.


We miss his smile, his kindly ways,

With him we spent some happy days;

We’ll miss him when we need a friend,

On him we always could depend.

If only he were here today

Then this to him we could say,

God bless you, Dad, on your birthday.


His nature was loving and giving,

His heart was made of pure gold,

And to us who truly love him,

His memory will never grow old.


I have lost. Heaven has gained,

The most wonderful Dad this world contained,

There’s just one thing makes me glad,

God chose you to be my Dad.


The last time I saw you,

You looked so bright and well,

Little did I know, Dad,

It was our last farewell.


Heavenly Father, hear my prayer,

Guide my Dad with tender care,

Love him in heaven as I did at home,

The dearest father this world could hold.


In dreams I see your smiling face,

And kiss your tender brow,

I then awake and realize,

I have no father now.


Remembering you is easy Dad,

I do it every day,

And missing you is something

That will never go away.


I wish that I could see you Dad,

For just a little while,

I wish that I could hug you and

see your lovely smile,

But wishing gets me nowhere,

And longing is in vain.

So I will hold you in my heart.

Until we meet again.


Thinking of you Dad,

but that is nothing new

I thought about you yesterday,

and the day before that too,

I’ll think about you tomorrow,

and as the years come and go

I’ll think about you forever,

because I loved you so.


You’ve earned your place in heaven Dad,

After all that you’ve been through

I wish I could have helped you

But there was nothing I could do

Peacefully sleeping now out of pain.

I would not wake you up to suffer again.


Fond memories Dad, through the mists of time

It seems so long, since last we met

But happy times are remembered yet.


There’s a bridge of happy memories

From here to heaven above

I know we share that bridge Dad

It’s called the Bridge of Love.


Dear Lord up above, give Grandad our love

Hug him and kiss him and tell him we love

Him and that we are always thinking of him.
