my mother died on monday and i would like to dedicate a poem to her. I want an uplifting poem suggesting that she has not gone and she is there with us giving us advice wisdom strenght etc. Can you think of anything. My mum is a very personal strong person who would want her funeral to be traditional so the poem must be dignified strong and realistic. Can you help
What about the following.
As you love me, let there be no mourning when I go,
No tearful eyes, No hopeless sighs, No woe, or even sadness! Indeed I would not have you sad, For I myself shall be full glad, With the high triumphant gladness Of a soul made free Of God's sweet liberty
No Windows darkened For my own Will be flung wide as ne'er before, To catch the radiant inpour Of Love that shall in full atone For all the ills that I have done; And the good things left undone;
No voices hushed; My own, full flushed With an immortal hope, will rise In ecstasies of new born bliss And joyful melodies.
Rather, or your sweet courtesy, Rejoice with me At my soul's loosing from captivity. With me, bon voyage, as you do a friend Whose joyous visit finds it happy end And bid me both A Dieu and Au revoir.
Since, though I come no more, I shall be waiting there to greet you At His Door. And, as the feet of The Bearers tread The ways I trod, Think not of me as dead, But rather happy. Thrice happy, she whose course is sped! She has gone home - to God, His Father
Whispers from Heaven
I too lost my mother about 2 1/2 months ago... This poem helped me find comfort. Hope this helps!
WHISPERS FROM HEAVEN Author: unknown
When I left this world without you I know it made you blue. Your tears fell so freely, I watched; I know this is true.
While you were weeping, Days after I passed away- While all was silent within me, I saw you kneel and pray.
From this wonderful place called heaven Where all my pain is gone, I send a gentle breeze to whisper, 'My loved ones, please go on'
The peace that I have found here Goes far beyond compare No rain, no clouds, no suffering- Just LOVE from everywhere.
You need not be troubled Just stay close to GOD in prayer Someday we'll be reunited My love, HIS love surrounds you always, EVERYWHERE!
I lost my mother 2 days ago my whole world is fallen apart your poem help me to know i will see her again and she is always with me thank you for having the words to comfort
