A Fallen Limb
(Sympathy Poems – Funeral Poems)

A limb has fallen
from the family tree ..
I hear a voice that whispers
‘Grieve not for me’.

Remember the best times
the laughter, the songs ..
The good I lived
while I was strong.

Continue my heritage
I’m counting on you ..
Keep on smiling
the sun will shine through.

My mind is at ease
my soul is at rest ..
Remembering all, how
I was truly blessed.

Continue traditions
no matter how small ..
Go on with your lives
don’t stare at the wall.

I miss you all dearly
so keep up your chin ..
Until that fine day
we’re together again.

My Dearest Family | Sympathy Grief Loss Poems

My Dearest Family
(Sympathy Grief Loss Poems)

To my dearest family
some things I’d like to say ..
But first of all to let you know
that I arrived okay.

I’m writing this from Heaven
where I dwell with God above ..
Where there are no tears or sadness
there is just eternal Love.

Please do not be unhappy
just because I’m out of sight ..
Remember that I’m with you
every morning, noon and night.

That day I had to leave you
when my life on earth was through ..
God picked me up and hugged me
and said, ‘ I welcome you’.

‘It’s good to have you back again
You were missed while you were gone ..
As for your dearest family
they’ll be here later on.

I need you here so badly
as part of my big plan ..
There’s so much that we have to do
to help our mortal man’.

Then God gave me a list of things
he wished for me to do ..
And foremost on that list of mine
is to watch and care for you.

I will be beside you
every day of the week and year ..
And when you’re sad I’m standing there
to wipe away the tear.

And when you lie in bed at night
the day’s chores put to flight ..
God and I are closest to you
in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on Earth
and all those loving years ..
Because you’re only human
there’s bound to be some tears.

One thing is for certain
though my life on Earth is over ..
I am closer to you now
than I ever was before.

And to my many friends
trust God knows what is best ..
I am not far away from you
I’m just beyond the crest.

There are rocky roads ahead for you
and many hills to climb ..
Together we can do it
taking one day at a time.

It was my philosophy
and please I’d like for you ..
To give unto the world
so the world will give to you.

If you can help someone
who’s in sorrow or in pain ..
Then you can say to God at night
my day was not in vain.

And now I am contented that
my life, it was worthwhile ..
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile.

When you’re walking down the street
and I am on your mind ..
I’m walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind.

And when you feel a gentle breeze
of wind upon your face ..
That’s me giving you a great big hug
or just a soft embrace.

When it’s time for you to go
from that body to be free ..
Remember you are not going
you are coming home to me.

I will always love you
from that place way up above ..
I will be in touch again soon
P.S. God sends his love.
