Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

 

 

 

 

 

 

Life is so uncertain, this we all may know....
No one knows the time or day,
when they'll have to go.
Though now my time has come to leave you
to face this world alone...
These promises I make you,
to give you strength to carry on.
When the sunlight awakens you,
I'll be there too.
When the moon shines on your pillow...
I'll be shining on you.
I'll be in the cooling breeze,
as it rustles through the trees..
I'll be in the pouring rain,
as it hits your window pane.
When darkness dims your vision,
close your eyes and look above
I'll be standing right beside you.
You will always have my love
May peace and comfort be upon you..
hold close my memories
For in our hearts we know that
no matter where you go...
Is where I'll always be.

 

 

 

. . . H O M E . . .

Home is not a place on earth,
Of wood or brick or stone;
For I've gone on to better things,
Now Heaven is my home.

Don't listen for my footsteps,
To fall across your floor;
Don't grieve for me forever,
Or wait to see me at your door.

Take comfort in my memory,
And you'll never be alone;
For I am so much richer,
Now that Heaven is my home.

Don't listen now to hear my voice,
Or look here for my face;
For I have a home of perfect peace,
And I'm now there in that place.

As long as you remember me,
You'll never be alone;
I will be here waiting for you,
Now Heaven is my home.

You must not think that I have gone
Please don't grieve or pine
I'd rather see you smiling
Laughing - working - looking fine

Death is an exciting key
Which opens many doors
It leads us into other worlds
Quite similar to yours

Life is not an accident
Death is not the end
God designed a mystery
Life and death do blend

So do not think that I have gone
Please don't brood or pine
I'd rather see you smiling
Laughing - working - looking fine

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free. 


 


We Walked Together

We walked together, you and I,
Husband and wife.
We had hopes and dreams for tomorrow,
But tomorrow didn't come.
We walked together, you and I.
We talked, we laughed, we loved.
We shared so many happy times
And for that, I thank God above.
We walked together, you and I,
But only for a short time.
For all too soon it ended
Leaving broken hearts behind.
And even though I miss you,
More than words can say,
I thank God that I got to walk with you
Every moment of each day....

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one,

The pain will go away, with time"
"It won't be so bad, after awhile"
So say these friends of mine...
But they have never lost a child....

The pain will never go away
Yet it softens some, with time
My child is gone, it hurts to say
I'll never be "just fine"

Tho another year has come and gone
I hold your memories in my heart
They dance there, as if to song
From that I know I'll never part

As time goes by year after year
And the pain begins to soften
I know that it's alright to tear
And live with my memories, more often.....

I'll lend you for a little while a child of mine God said
For you to love the while he lives and mourn for when he's dead
It may be six or seven years or forty two or three
But will you 'til I call him back take care of him for Me
He'll bring his ways to gladden you and should his stay be brief
You'll always have his memories as a solace for your grief
I cannot promise he will stay as all from earth return
But there are lessons taught below that I want you all to learn
I've looked this whole world over in My search for students true
And from the folks that crown life's lane I have chosen you
Now will you give him all your love nor think labour vain
Nor hate Me when I come to take this lent child back again?
I fancied that I heard them say Dear Lord Thy Will be done
For all the joys Thy child will bring the risk of grief we'll run
We'll shelter him with tenderness we'll love him while we may
And just for having loved him forever grateful stay.

Joe was born in West Virginia on Wednesday July 03, 1963 at 10:39am and was tragically taken too soon, on Friday November 18, 2005
at 10:10am at the age of 42. 

We will remember him forever.
We will never let the world forget our precious Joe. 


Why must my heart keep grieving,
Why do I feel so alone?
Why did you take my loved one God,
Why couldn't he stay at home?
Why did he have to feel pain,
Why did he have to die?
Why can't I go to sleep at night,
Why do I have to cry?

'My child,' said God, 'please understand,
I know your grief runs deep,
I've heard your many questions
In your prayers before you sleep;
I promised all eternity,
No death shall shadow you,
Your loved ones dwell with me above,
Up in those skies so blue;
They live with me in Heaven,
This place is their real home,
Their time on earth was through,
They learned to love, I called them home.
Your loved one is an Angel now,
Watching closely over thee,
There is no fear or pain up here,
Their soul is roaming free.
I let your loved one visit you
As you lie down in your bed,
He holds your hand and helps you pray
And gently strokes your head.
So please stop asking why he left
And dry your weary eyes,
For he is safe from harm on earth
With me, in the Heavenly skies.'

When You feel Lonely


When a person you love passes away
Look to the night sky on a clear day.
The star that to you, appears to be bright,
Will be your loved one,
Looking upon you during the night.
The lights of heaven are what shows through
As your loved one watches all that you do.
When you feel lonely for the one that you love,
Look to the Heavens in the night sky above


Two Hearts


Two hearts we were as one on earth,
Two hearts that were entwined,
My love for him was very strong,
He lives inside my mind.
His twinkling eyes got weary,
His beating heart took rest.
His lovely life just slipped away,
That life so full of zest!
I know he's gone to Heaven,
From earth he slipped away,
But faith in you my dearest Lord
Keeps me strong every day.
Two hearts once beat together,
Now one beats all alone.
I know one day we'll meet
Dear Lord,
The day you call me home.

 

 

 To Love Again

When I sleep at night
You creep into my dreams
Always at the right time
Be it you're
Sending me a message
From Heaven
You want to come home
The summer days have come
My Love
I'm surrounded by people
Full of love
I feel
I'm living someone else life
Alone without you
I read your love letters
Over and over
To remind me
Really how close you are
For my heart
Be a step away from Heaven
Blowing sweet kisses to my only Love

There Is A Place


There is a place high up above
Where Angels dwell, so full of love;
Soft music plays and rainbows fair
Swirl round the mansion God prepared.
There is much laughter, joyous glee
In this great place we all shall be.
And in the glorious days to come,
The Angels greet their loved ones home,
They wrap their wings around so tight,
And guide them up into the light.
This paradise waits for all who pray,
For those that believe in God, come what may,
For death is no more in His Heaven above,
Just happiness dwelling in sweet Angel's love.

The Message


What mean you by this weeping?
To break my very heart?
We are all in Christ's keeping,
And therefore cannot part.
You there - me here, tho' parted
We still at heart are one;
I just in sunshine,
The shadow scarcely gone.
What tho' the clouds surround you,
You can the brightness see.
'Tis only a little way that
Leads from you to me.
I was so very weary
Surely you could not mourn,
That I a little sooner
Should lay my burden down.
Then weep not - weep not, my darling,
God wipes away all tears,
'Tis but a little while,
Though you may call it years.

The Other Side


This isn't death, it's glory!
It isn't dark, it's light.
It isn't stumbling, groping,
Or even faith, it's sight!

This isn't grief, it's having
My last tear wiped away.
It's sunrise, it's the morning
Of my eternal day!

This isn't even praying,
It's speaking face to face.
It's listening, and it's glimpsing
The wonders of His Grace.
This is the end of pleading
For strength to bear my pain.
Not even pain's dark memory
Will ever live again.

How did I bear the earth life
Before I came up higher,
Before my soul was granted
It's every deep desire.

Before I knew this rapture
Of meeting face to face
That One who sought and saved me,
And kept me by His Grace!

The Angels


May angels rest beside your door,
May you hear their voices sing.
May you feel their loving care for you,
May you hear their peace bells ring.
May angels always care for you,
And not let you trip and fall,
May they bear you up on angel's wings,
May they keep you standing tall.
May they whisper wisdom in your ear,
May they touch you when you need,
May they remove from you each trace of fear,
May they keep you from feeling greed.
May they fill you with their presence,
May they show you love untold,
May they always stand beside you
And make you ever bold.
May they teach you what you need to know
A boutlife here and here-after.
May they fill you always with their love
And give you the gift of laughter.

In the Arms of an Angel
Don't cry, don't cry,
God knows of your heartache and pain,
He's aware you need holding and love now,
He has sent me to help and sustain.

I'm here, I'm here,
Your hurts will cease; you will see,
Close your sweet eyes and rest now,
Shortly you will be pain free.

I'll help, I'll help,
That's why, precious soul, I have come,
To relieve you of your distress now,
So, be at ease with me, little one.

A woman you are now in stature,
Though a child still lives in your heart,
I know of the tears you have shed, dear,
When alone in your room in the dark.

It's all right, to cry,
Let the tears freely flow down your cheek,
Those sad tears I shall replace now,
With tears of joy together we'll weep.

There, there, there, there,
You're safe; it's important you know,
You're safe in the arms of an angel,
Sent by your Father, who loves you so.

 I'm Everyplace

I'M EVERYPLACE don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see
I'm right by your side each night and day
And within your heart I long to stay
My body is gone but I'm always near
I'm everything you feel, see or hear
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart
I'll never wander out of your sight
I'm the brightest star on a summer night
I'll never be beyond your reach
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach
I'm the colourful leaves when fall comes around
And the pure white snow that blankets the ground
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond
The clear cool water in a quiet pond
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in spring
The first warm raindrop that April will bring
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine
When you start thinking there's no one to love you
You can talk to me through the Lord above you
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees

And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face
Just look for me,
I'm everyplace.

My Precious Love


Sometimes I tell myself, that you’re not really gone.
I feel you’re tender touch and no longer feel alone.
I see us walking hand in hand like we use to do.
It’s hard for me to accept.....
That your life on earth is through.
There were so many dreams we had not yet fulfilled,
All The hopes of a future that we were going to build.
All our friends and family have been so very kind,
They try hard to ease my broken heart
And my troubled mind.
But how can my heart be mended,
When it has broken in two?
Part of my heart is still on earth,
The other part left with you.
It is hard to see tomorrow,
When I can’t accept today,
Because the “Love of My Life”
Has been taken away.
I will always miss you, Sweetheart,
Time will not erase the pain,
All the raw emotions of losing you,
Words will never explain.
I will cling to the warm feelings
You brought into my life,
Maybe somehow it will ease my confusion
And emotional strife.
Someday we will be rejoined in Heaven up above,
But while I’m still on earth I will cherish
Every memory of our precious love.
Somehow those precious memories
Will have to carry me through,
Until the time comes for us to walk hand in hand
For an eternity...... together.......me and you.

Hometown Salute: Keeping Love Alive
Posted Monday, October 2, 2006 ; 05:55 PM

A Kanawha County woman inspires her community with the strength she's shown since losing her husband.
Story by Nicky Walters

Judy King, the recipient of this week’s Hometown Salute, is on a mission to keep her husband’s memory alive.

In 2005, Joe King, Judy’s husband of 21 years, was hit by a car and killed while working on construction crew along W.Va. 3 in Boone County.

Since Joe died, Judy has been on a mission to keep his memory alive.

Her house, her car, her yard and even her clothes are a tribute to Joe. She has even made a Web site about her late husband.

She says the projects help her get up every day and carry on.

"We started dating and we were inseparable until November 18 (the day Joe died)," she said. "I don't have a choice. It’s not meant for me to not go on or God would've taken me. You just have to realize you have a choice. You can either lay down and be miserable or you can get up dust yourself off every morning and say “You know what I'm going to do this for whoever the person is that you lost.””

She’s not the only one keeping his memory alive.

The stretch of road between Racine and Madison – the road where Joe was working when he was killed - has been named "The Joe King Memorial Highway".

To see photos of Joe and learn more about this story click on the link below.

If someone you know deserves a Hometown Salute be sure to let us know. Email Nicky Walters at nwalters@wowktv.com and tell her your story. Make certain to include and email address or telephone number where we can reach you and information about why the person you are nominating deserves a Hometown Salute.

 Garden In Heaven

There Was A Special Garden In Heaven
Waiting For Someone As Wonderful As You
So, The Master Took Your Hand
And Gave You Eternal Life, Brand New
The Angels, We Can Hear Them Singing
Small Children Are Telling Jesus The News
There Is A New Rose In Heaven
Picked By God, That Precious Rose Is You
It’s Hard For Us To Let You Go
To Realize Your Life On Earth Is Through
But We’re Thankful For All The Memories
Seeds Of Love, Planted In Our Hearts
By A Man Who's Life Was Honest And True! 

 

 
 My Precious Husband

I Can No Longer Hold You In My Arms,
I Can No Longer Call You On The Phone
But You Will Always Be In My Heart
And Forever In My Dreams
I’ll See Your Smile And Sparkling Eyes
I Will Always Hear Your Laughter
Above Any Other Sound
The Lingering Smell Of Your Cologne
Will Forever Be Around
You Were My One And Only True Love
My Special Lovely Rose
How I’ll Survive Without You
Heaven Only Knows
Goodnight My Precious Love
I Will Hold Your Memory Close
And ‘Till We Meet In Heaven Above
One Last Kiss My Darling
That’s What I’ll Give To You
Knowing It Will Have To Keep
Me Until My Life Is Through

This poem was written by: Teresa Shelton Bright
 
Who can say for certain?
Maybe you're still here--
I feel you all around me--
Your memory's so clear.
Deep within the stillness,
I can hear you speak;
You're still an inspiration.
Can it be?

That you are my Forever Love
And you are watching over me
From up above?
Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star!
I wish upon tonight to see you smile,
If only for a while,
To know you're there.
A breath away's not far to where you are.

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dreams?
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen?
As my heart holds you
Just one beat away,
I cherish all you gave me
Every day.

'Cause you are my Forever Love,
Watching me from up above;
And I believe
That angels grieve
And that love will live on and never leave!

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star!
I wish upon tonight to see you smile,
If only for a while,
To know you're there.
A breath away's not far to where you are.

I know you're there---
A breath away's not far to where you are. 

 
 
 
Missing You


No words I write can ever say
How much I miss you every day.
As time goes by, the loneliness grows;
How I miss you, nobody knows!
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name,
But all I have are memories
And photos in a frame.
No one knows my sorrow,
No one sees me weep,
But the love I have for you
Is in my heart to keep.
I've never stopped loving you--
I'm sure I never will;
Deep inside my heart,
You are with me still.
Heartaches in this world are many
But mine is worse than any.
My heart still aches as I whisper low,
"I need you and I miss you so."
The things we feel so deeply
Are often the hardest to say,
But I just can't keep quiet any more,
So I'll tell you anyway.
There is a place in my heart
That no one else can fill;
I love you so,
And I always will. 

 
The pearly gates were opened wide,
To let an angel come inside.
No more tears, no more pain,
Just sweet peace forever to reign.

You've done your work here on earth,
None but God knows your heavenly worth.
The Master's voice you did obey,
His praise you sang both night and day.

Though friends and family weep for you,
We understand our Heavenly Father needed you.

The time we shared was just a loan,
For now He's called you to your heavenly home.
Our hearts may be heavy and our tears may fall,
But We're not to question, for Christ knows all.

~Ruth Scott~
 
I Am Not So Far Away

I am not so far from you,
Just a litte way beyond,
Past the cares and past the pain,
Far past my earthly bonds.

When you feel you miss me the most,
As the years go drifting by,
Each memory will prove to you,
That our love will never die.

For memories are but a touch
From the Father's gentle hand,
To heal your pain and mend your hearts,
To help you understand

That while I left you far too soon,
I did not leave alone,
For the Father sent His angels
To gently take me home.

Take comfort when you think of me,
Keep my love alive in your heart,
And with the warmth of each memory,
We will never be apart.

~Allison Chambers Coxsey~
 
Let Memories Surround You

Feel no guilt in laughter,
For they know how much you care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile
That they're not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever--
They would not want you to.
They'd hope that you would 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 them back as clearly
As though they were still here,
And fills you with the feelings
That they are always near.
For if you keep those moments,
You will never be apart,
And they will live forever....
Locked safe within your heart.

How Long Will The Pain Last ?

"How long will the pain last?"
A broken-hearted mourner asked me.
"All the rest of your Life,"
I have to answer truthfully.

We never quite forget.
No matter how many years pass, we remember.
The loss of a loved one is like a major operation.
Part of us is removed, and we have a scar
For the rest of our lives.

As years go by, we manage.
There are things to do, people to care for,
Tasks that call for full attention.
But the pain is still there, not far below the surface.

We see a face that looks familiar,
Hear a voice that echoes,
See a photograph in someone's album,
See a landscape that once we saw together,
And it seems as though
A knife were in the wound again.

But not so painfully,
And mixed with joy, too,
Because remembering a happy time is not all sorrow;
It brings back some happiness with it, too.

How long will the pain last?
"All the rest of your life."
But the thing to remember
Is that not only will the pain last,
But the blessed memories as well.

Tears are proof of life;
The more love, the more tears.
If this be true, then how could we ever ask
That the pain cease altogether?
For then the memory of love would go with it.
The pain of grief is the price we pay for love.

Grieving in Silence

Why must I grieve so silently
When my heart is loudly screaming?
The emptiness I feel consumes me.
O God! How I wish I were dreaming!

The silence around me is deafening,
For no one knows what to say
To comfort this pain I am feeling
Since my sweet son went away.

Each day the sun continues to rise,
And the earth - it still is turning;
Though my world has come to a screeching halt,
Nobody can ease my yearning.

For a part of me has vanished,
And a part of my heart has died,
And no one can hear my heartache
Or feel my turmoil inside.

So I'll go on grieving in silence
And exist on a separate plane;
I'll keep my love for him deep in my heart
Till we see each other again.

Why?

Perhaps one day we’ll understand
Why God decided to take your hand
And lead you into Heaven above
Surrounded by His tender love.

Never does a day pass by
That we don’t ask the question"Why?"
Why did God take our Joe?
Was it something we had done?
We hope to face the Lord one day
And ask Him why you couldn’t stay
On earth with those who loved you so,
Those who wanted to see you grow.

We mourn for the things that will not be,
For the things with you, we'll never see,
The fun and games we'll never share,
For special times when you won't be there.

No more to see your smiling face,
Nothing will ever take your place.
In our hearts you will always stay,
While we await that "One Sweet Day."

That "One Sweet Day" in Heaven above,
Where we will meet and affirm our love.
Once more our arms will hold you tight,
As in God's presence we'll reunite.

Until that day, we must live our lives
Ensuring each memory of you survives,
And feel your presence, ever near,
Each time we shed a painful tear.

"See you in Heaven," you'll hear us say,
As you watch over us every day,
Then when our lives on earth are done,
We know you'll be the one to come.

You'll take us gently by the hand,
And lead us to God's Heavenly land,
Where all together we will be
Our, once more, happy family. 

Forget Me Not

Forget me not,
For I am there
In the beat of your heart,
On the wing of your prayer.

Forgive me my parting
And leaving you thus;
A joyous reunion
Is waiting for us!

Continue to strive
Toward your goal and be brave;
Know that my love
Didn't stop at the grave.

My spirit is with you
Through good times and bad;
I share all the joys
And the sorrows you've had.

Feel my presence
Within your next breath,
And realize
There's no distance in death.

Ask for my help
And I'll answer your call;
Reach for my hand
When you stumble and fall.

Run the last mile
With a smile on your face;
My arms will be waiting
When you finish the race.

Always remember,
My love is right there--
In the beat of your heart,
On the wing of your prayer.

The House Is Empty Now

The house is empty now, and so am I.
The silence is all around me
and penetrates my every step.
If I listen to music, it pierces my soul
and brings up tears on its way out.

I see his picture on several walls,
giving a momentary glow
to days gone by, filling those rooms
with love’s reflections, as I pass through.

I go out and return, but the routine and the voices
beyond this place cannot come back with me.
I am stripped and searched at the door,
humbled as I lean upon the entrance way.
I may only take the emptiness in.

That doesn’t seem necessary,
since it abides here anyway.
The house is empty now,
and so am I.

~Reverend William E. Gramley 
 
One Day Closer to You

I sometimes ask the Lord
Why He took you before me,
And though He's never answered-
I guess it was meant to be.

I tell myself you're watching,
That you're never far away;
I sometimes feel the slightest touch
When I bow my head to pray.

I know heaven must have a window
With no curtain to hide the view,
I know you must stand there often
And watch me missing you.

I know you're helping me go on--
You're guiding me through the pain;
I somehow sense you're telling me
There's more sunshine now then rain.

Each new day now dawns with meaning--
Something inside of me rings so true,
Today will slip into yesterday
And I'll be one day closer to you! 

 
Don’t Think I Do Not Grieve

Don’t think I do not feel;
Because you see no tears.
A river rages deep inside
Of grief, and loss, and fears.

Just because I do not cry now,
Don’t think my heart’s not broken.
I keep inside the misery
Of words not to be spoken.

Sometimes I smile, or crack a joke,
So you won’t see the pain;
Or notice how my hands still shake,
Or how I’ve gone insane.

Each time I chance to think of him,
My heart is ripped asunder.
The loss I feel is mine alone--
You will not see my thunder.

~Brenda Penepent
When Sadness Comes

When life brings untold sadness,
Is different than we've known,
We wonder just how we'll make it,
How we can carry on.

We try to hold our heads up and,
Make it through the day.
But we are oh so sorrowful!,
As we try to make our way.



Sometimes we hurt so much inside,
We can't seem to find relief,
Especially when alone with our tears,
There's nothing but our grief.

Just know that Jesus loves us,
He knows about our pain.
If we open up our heart to Him
He'll help us smile again.



If we turn our eyes upon Jesus,
And His promises we claim,
When shadows of the evening come.
Grief will not remain.

We'll find Him in the morning light!,
And feel His presence there.
He's there for us with open arms
And for us He will care.

'I"m torn, and broken
No matter how I appear to others
How high I hold my head up
Or how my words are spoken
I will never be the person
That I use to be
And no matter how I appear to others
Head up, strong spoken
They have no idea who I am
I am me
Not who I appear to be
 
Poem of Life
Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.
 
"Life Without You"

Alone in hell, I have nowhere to turn
Memories of you, my love you spurn
Unseen forces brought us together
My heart is scarred, broken forever
In my dreams, I feel your touch
My heart is full, never so much
Time heals all wounds, this is a lie
My soul is lost, wanting to die
With broken pieces, I shall carry on
Crying forever with what's left
 
 
 
 Remember
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 I once had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be said.
Christina Georgina Rossetti

 
 
 

The memory of a dear one, however long apart,

Is like a soothing melody that lingers in the heart.

Is like a perfect rainbow that lingers in the sky,

The portrait of a past that can never die. 
  
 
 
 
 He did not know when leaving home, he would no more return.

That he in death so soon would sleep, and leave us to mourn.

Today as we look at your picture, so loving, so tender and true,

No wonder our hearts are broken, thinking, dear one, of you.
 

 

My Love
Heaven is a beautiful place
Someday you will see
The pink heavenly sea
I stand before in this moment
It is here the Angel’s stand
When the heartache of our mourners
Speak to our souls
From another plane
Your breath and tears come to me
In a soft gentle breeze
Across the tides
The Love in your heart
Chill my soul
Thy wings caress my flesh
I remember the depths of our passion
The Love we shared
All is here with me
In my heart
I whisper
God grants you peace
A space in your heart
Where all we shared
Rest in peace
For in this moment
My soul is never alone
I wait patiently
Someday to share with my Love eternity<:>

I Have a Place in Heaven
I have a place in heaven
Please don't sing sad songs for me,
Forget your grief and fears,
For I am in a perfect place
Away from pain and tears.
It's far away from hunger
And hurt and want and pride,
I have a place in Heaven
With the Master at my side.
My life on earth was very good,
As earthly life can go,
But Paradise is so much more
Than anyone can know.
My heart is filled with happiness
And sweet rejoicing, too.
To walk with God is perfect peace,
A joy forever new.

I’m waiting here in heaven,
And on the day we meet again.
I’ll be the first to smile and greet you,
When God calls you home to him.


 

 

No morning dawns, no night returns that I do not think of you.

When links of life are broken, and loved ones have to part, it leaves a wound that never heals to a broken heart.

When evening shades are falling and I sit all alone,

To my heart comes this feeling ??? if you were only home.
Faith
You will not see me, so you must have faith. I wait for the time when we can soar
together again, both aware of each other. Until then, live your life to its fullest and when
you need me, just whisper my name in your heart, ...I will be there.
Emily Dickenson

 
 His Ghost Whispering

God
Tell me how I mend my broken heart
When I feel his breath
Brush against my flesh
I lay my head against his pillow
Imagining he lies next to me
I hear his voice
I taste his lips
I feel his touch
Until I open my eyes
Realizing I am alone
Without him
To wonder if this moment
Be his soul
Reaching out to me
In a gentle breeze
His Ghost
Whispering
I Love you
My voice whispering back
Forever my Love
Still mourning

To Love Again

When I sleep at night
You creep into my dreams
Always at the right time
Be it you're
Sending me a message
From Heaven
You want to come home
The summer days have come
My Love
I'm surrounded by people
Full of love
I feel
I'm living someone else life
Alone without you
I read your love letters
Over and over
To remind me
Really how close you are
For my heart
Be a step away from Heaven
Blowing sweet kisses to my only Love

Just one little peek into heaven,
Is all I'm asking for today.
I just want to know how he's doing,
And heaven seems so far away.

Is he playing on the clouds with angels?
Is he laughing and running today?
Does he miss me?
I guess only he knows.
Oh why does heaven seem so far away?

If you just let me look for a moment,
To catch a glimpse of him sweet smiling face,
I promise I won't try to take him,
I know, he's in a better place.

Just one little peek into heaven,
Is all I'm asking for today.
I just want to know how he's doing,
And heaven seems so far away...

 Have I not cried enough?

While the other families celebrate,
My eyes will fill with tears.
And it somehow doesn't seem right
That Joe's been gone four years.

Give me the strength to make it through
And help my soul to see
ThatJoe's safe and whole with You,
For all eternity.

Help me to feel his presence near,
The brush of angel wings,
Teach me once again to smile,
Help my spirit sing.

Turn my mourning into dancing,
As You said You would,
Help my spirit look to heaven
And to see the good.

For I know that life's eternal
When we give our hearts to You,
And someday I will be in heaven
When life on earth is through.

Let me dwell on that glad hope
And not on tears and pain.
Someday I will live with You
And be with Joe again.
 
 
 
 
 Missing You

Oh, Joe, I am missing you!
My heart can't seem to mend.
These last five years I've fooled myself,
But no more can I pretend.

You've not just gone to foreign lands,
To come home any day.
You've gone to where I can't yet go,
You've gone away to stay.

I used to feel I could hear your steps
Walking down the hall,
But when I eagerly checked it out,
You were not there at all.

I used to think I heard your voice
Calling, "Judy, it's me!"
But when I went to welcome you,
You were not there to see.

In daydreams I still see your face,
You dance around my heart.
But then reality sets in
And I know that we're apart.

Those memories of days gone by
Are jewels I'll always treasure.
They're safely locked within my heart,
I love you without measure.

And, hope, too, lives within my heart,
For this I know is true:
Someday my call from God will come
And then I'll be with you.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I quiver. I shiver.
They tell me the news.
I wonder why He chose you.
I walk the streets remembering you
No matter what they say,
it’s still the same.
Only you could fill the empty void
I know you’re okay and feel no pain,
But with each passing day
I say a prayer asking God to take care of you.
We miss you and love you.
In our hearts is where you’ll stay,
Until we meet again in Heaven someday
 
 
 
 
You have gone, you've left me, why did you go away?
I've tried to figure out what I could've done that day,
But nothing can change destiny, no one is to blame.
And this so called life I'm living will never be the same.
So many things unsaid and things I didn't do.
But as long as I have memory I will remember you
 
 
 
 
 
Till My Soul Comes

This morning
I journey to the hallow hill
Beyond the meadow
I am lonely, my Love
With me I've a Gardenia
Just for you
I lay it here
Where you rest in peace
I hope the scent lingers straight up to Heaven
As does my tears in sweet thought of you
I feel your presence
Everywhere I turn
Whisper to me my Love
If only in my dreams
Hold me close in your heart
Till my soul comes to be
In Heaven

 My Precious Love


Sometimes I tell myself, that you’re not really gone.
I feel you’re tender touch and no longer feel alone.
I see us walking hand in hand like we use to do.
It’s hard for me to accept.....
That your life on earth is through.
There were so many dreams we had not yet fulfilled,
All The hopes of a future that we were going to build.
All our friends and family have been so very kind,
They try hard to ease my broken heart
And my troubled mind.
But how can my heart be mended,
When it has broken in two?
Part of my heart is still on earth,
The other part left with you.
It is hard to see tomorrow,
When I can’t accept today,
Because the “Love of My Life”
Has been taken away.
I will always miss you, Sweetheart,
Time will not erase the pain,
All the raw emotions of losing you,
Words will never explain.
I will cling to the warm feelings
You brought into my life,
Maybe somehow it will ease my confusion
And emotional strife.
Someday we will be rejoined in Heaven up above,
But while I’m still on earth I will cherish
Every memory of our precious love.
Somehow those precious memories
Will have to carry me through,
Until the time comes for us to walk hand in hand
For an eternity...... together.......me and you.




 
In Memory Of You

We want to always remember
The beautiful life you lived
And keep alive the memories we have
Through remembering what you did



For you’re so special to all of us
A wonderful person indeed
Your love, laughter and warm smile
Reflected a heart that believed



Just in the everyday things we do
We remember your faith and love
In the words you spoke to help us through
Is a continued reminder for us



Although we miss you so very much
We know we’ll see you once more
For this is the hope we have in God
Being re-united in the Lord



And as we gather we’ll continue to share
Special times we went through
For these are memories that warm our hearts
As we honour the memory of you

I Speak Your Name

Soft as a feather, your name
Touches my lips,
My mind, my heart.
Bittersweet
Feelings of love
And loss fill me suddenly.
Joy, I've found at last,
Is touched by sadness
And emptiness without you.
And yet,
I live;
I breathe and go on,
As best I can.
Bravely,
I dream of conversations
And escapades,
Though now just memories--
So real for a moment,
I cry for myself.
The helplessness is terrifying
And cruel.
The quiet thunders in my ears.
Memories of a smile,
A look, a laugh, flood my mind,
Until I laugh and cry for want of you.
Oh, how I wish
Things could be different!
If only for a moment more with you!
I bless your name and God
For His love in letting me know you,
For our whole lifetime together.
Like music, your spirit surrounds me,
Bearing me up when my heart sinks.
I thank God for you, my angel,
Every time I speak your name.

I Wanted You To Know......


I Was Sitting Here In Heaven
And Having A Wonderful Day.
I Started Thinking About You
And All The Things I Didn’t Get A Chance To Say.
I Don’t Want You To Worry About Me
And Please Don’t Shed Any Tears,
Because I Will Wait For You In Heaven,
If It Takes A Hundred Years.
Everything I Had On Earth
I Have In Heaven Too!
My First Day Here
My Body Became Brand New.
It Is Really Pretty Here
And I Love My New Home,
Although Your Heart Is Broken
Because My Body Is Gone.
My Love Will Always Be There
As You Go Along The Way,
Just Take A Peek Inside Your Heart
There Is Where I’ll Stay.
Know That I Loved My Family
And All My Friends Too,
My Thoughts Will Be With Each Of You
Your Whole Life Through.

 


 I am now in Heaven,
The gates have opened wide,
And now I have the privilege
Of walking by His side.
The angel choir is singing
And the music is so sweet;
I'll join them just as soon
As I have worshiped at His feet.

I am now in Heaven,
The blood washed throng is here;
I recognize a lot of them,
There's not a single tear.

There's joy beyond description
And reunions by the score;
There'll be no more separations,
For we'll be here evermore.

I am now in Heaven,
Please wipe away your tears;
I've fought the battle, run the race,
And I'm rid of all my fears.

There is no pain or sorrow here,
The heartaches now are past;
I've read and sung of Heaven,
And now I'm here at last!

I am now in Heaven,
And oh, this place is grand!
No one could have ever told me
Of all the beauty in this land.

Since I cannot describe it,
You'll have to come and see
That it was worth the many trials
To live here for all eternity
 

If There Are Roses In Heaven
Will You Send One Just For Me
So I Can Hold It Close To My Heart
Where You Will Always Be
I Will Lay It On My Pillow Each Night
As The Angels Tuck Me In
I Will Know That You Are Near Me
And Feel Your Presence Once Again
I Am Thankful For All The Years
You Were There To Help Me Through
I Will Always Remember “My Precious Husband”
Whose Love Was Honest And True! 

 
 

 
 

I Still Feel Your Love
Written by an Unknown Author

I know you’re gone from this earth
You left me way too soon
But I feel your love every time
I gaze up at the moon.
Sometimes I think I hear
A whisper in the wind
It sounds as if you’ve called my name
As your love to me you send.
Sometimes I do a silly thing
And your laughter fills my ears
I know you’re right here with me
But I can’t see you through my tears.
I felt your hand upon my shoulder
And I quickly turned to see
Visible... you were not
But I know you’re here with me.
In the night you sometime come
To visit in my dreams
My hands go out to touch you
But you’re just out of reach it seems.
For just a flash you appear
Standing close to me
Is it just my imagination
Or is it really you I see.
Even though you’re gone from me
And you watch me from above
I long for you everyday…
And I still feel your love.

As does my tears in sweet thought of you

If only in my dreams
Hold me close in your heart
Till my soul comes to be

Tell me how I mend my broken heart
When I feel his breath
Brush against my flesh

Imagining he lies next to me

Until I open my eyes

Be his soul
Reaching out to me
In a gentle breeze

I Love you
My voice whispering back
Forever my Love
Still mourning

As We Look Back

As we look back over time
We find ourselves wondering .....
Did we remember to thank you enough
For all you have done for us?
For all the times you were by our sides
To help and support us .....
To celebrate our successes
To understand our problems
And accept our defeats?
Or for teaching us by your example,
The value of hard work, good judgement,
Courage and integrity?
We wonder if we ever thanked you
For the sacrifices you made.
To let us have the very best?
And for the simple things
Like laughter, smiles and times we shared?
If we have forgotten to show our
Gratitude enough for all the things you did,
We're thanking you now.
And we are hoping you knew all along,
How much you meant to us
.



We Walked Together

We walked together, you and I,
Husband and wife.
We had hopes and dreams for tomorrow,
But tomorrow didn't come.
We walked together, you and I.
We talked, we laughed, we loved.
We shared so many happy times
And for that, I thank God above.
We walked together, you and I,
But only for a short time.
For all too soon it ended
Leaving broken hearts behind.
And even though I miss you,
More than words can say,
I thank God that I got to walk with you
Every moment of each day....

DAD
We'll always remember
that special smile,
that caring heart,
that warm embrace,
you always gave us.
You being there
for Mom and us
through good and bad times,
no matter what.
We'll always remember
you Dad because
they'll never be another one
to replace you in our hearts,
and the love we will always
have for you.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 IN LOVING MEMORY

OF

JIM CLARK

 Sometimes we can't help
but ask the reason "why?"..
when a person we love
will just suddenly die!
Our heart is emptied
and replaced with pain.
There's such a heartache
that no words can explain!

For, one day he's here...
but the next day, he's gone!
You're surrounded by love,
Yet you feel lost and alone!
Everyone has felt the sting of death...
at some point in their life!
They know it cuts into your heart...
just like a two-edged knife!

But, there's one thing
that we must all understand...
Without "death," he can't walk
with God hand in hand!
And, if he could come back today
to this cruel worldly place,
He'd tell you how great Heaven is,
and he'd wipe the tears from your face!

He'd tell you that Heaven
is such a beauty to behold;
that the paths are lined with jewels...
that he walks on streets made of gold!
He'd tell you not to cry for him...
To stop the flow of your tears!
For he now walks with Angels,
And...he'll always be near!

When I'm Gone
by Mrs.Lyman Hancock

When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile

Forget unkind words I have spoken
Remember some good I have done
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun

Forget that I've stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way
Remember I have fought some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day

Then forget to grieve for my going
I would not have you sad for a day
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay

And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best
