My Dearest Family
(Sympathy Poems – Funeral 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 s oft 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.

I Heard Your Voice In The Wind Today | Sympathy Funeral Poems

I Heard Your Voice In The Wind Today
(Sympathy Poems – Funeral Poems)

I heard your voice in the wind today
and I turned to see your face ..
The warmth of the wind caressed me
as I stood silently in place.

I felt your touch in the sun today
as its warmth filled the sky ..
I closed my eyes for your embrace
and my spirit soared high.

I saw your eyes in the window pane
as I watched the falling rain ..
It seemed as each raindrop fell
it quietly said your name.

I held you close in my heart today
it made me feel complete ..
You may have died .. but you are not gone
you will always be a part of me.

As long as the sun shines
the wind blows
the rain falls ..
You will live on inside of me forever
for that is all, my heart knows.

As I Look Up To The Skies Above | Sympathy Funeral Poems

As I Look Up To The Skies Above
(Sympathy Funeral Poems)

As I look up to the skies above
The stars stretch endlessly ..
But somehow all those rays of light
Seem dimmer now to me.

As I watch the morning sun appear
The shadows still don’t fade ..
As if the brightest light of all
Was somehow swept away.

Though I see the branches swaying,
And watch their dancing leaves ..
The echoes carried on the wind
Don’t sound the same to me.

As I listen to the morning birds
Sing softly from afar ..
It seems to be a mournful tune
That echoes in my heart.

Another day has come again
As time moves surely on ..
But nothing now seems quite the same
To know that he is gone.

The days and weeks and months ahead
Will never be the same ..
Because a treasure beyond words
Can never be replaced.

The loss cannot be measured now
The void cannot be filled ..
And though someday the grief may fade
His mark will live on still.

For even with my heavy heart
I know that I’ve been blessed ..
To have been one who’s life he touched
With warmth so infinite.

Death Be Not Proud | Sympathy Poems Funeral Poems

Death Be Not Proud
(Sympathy Funeral Poems)

Death, be not proud
though some have called thee.

Mighty and dreadful
for thou art not so ..
For those whom thou, think’st
thou dost overthrow.

Die not, poor Death
nor yet canst thou kill me ..
From rest and sleep
which but thy pictures be.

Much pleasure .. then, from
thee much more must flow ..
And soonest our best men
with thee do go.

Rest of their bones
and soul’s delivery ..
Thou’rt slave to fate chance
kings and desperate men.

And dost with poison
war and sickness dwell ..
And poppy or charms
can make us sleep as well.

And better than thy stroke
why swell’st thou then?
One short sleep past
we wake eternally.

And death shall be no more
Death thou shalt die.

~ John Donne
