Short poem for my sister’s memorial


I’m really needing your help…My sister has died, and I want to read a poem of some kind…something that talks about finally being at peace after traveling a difficult life path. She died at her own hand, so it’s a sensitive situation and I want to stress the release that her death represents.

Thanks for your help….

There are other poems too.

My sister also shot herself in the head. A tragedy, a deeply wrong thing to do. She left behind the shattered pieces of her family, our hearts torn as the bullet tore through her head. Our tears still flow sometimes, after 20 years, when we think or talk about her. What a loss to our hearts and souls.

Forgive yourself. You can’t stop someone who is determined.

My sister died

my sister has died from a drunk driver and i need something to read please help me

What about this:

If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane
I’d walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again
No Farewell words were spoken
No time to say good-bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.

My heart’s still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.

Since you’ll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you’ll always stay.

God knows why, with chilling touch,
Death gathers those we love so much,
And what now seems so strange and dim,
Will all be clear, when we meet Him.
I Knew you for a Moment

I saw my sister in the chapel of rest,
and held her little hand,
she looked so peaceful and content,
she will never understand the
pain,the hurt the tears i’ve cryed
wishing that she had never died.
all the months and all the years
we could of shared together
we still can do that,in my heart
because the memory of you i’ll treasure.

I lost a sister

i lost my sister on the 15/9/2006 she was just 9 years old she had been run over and killed right away i blam my self as i should of been going to pick her up to stay at my house after i had done at work but work asked me to stay and do a few more hours so i did as i need the money wish i never now cos if i said no she prob would still be here now

hi i lost my sister 4 days ago 2 cancer she was only 13, im going to miss her so much and there wont be a day that goes by that i wont think of her, shes the bravest strongest person i no she allways stayed possitive right up 2 the last day, holding my sister and watching her simply fad away was the hardest thing ive ever had 2 do, im 25 and even though there was a big age gap we was really close i cant even think of my life with out her at the moment,i could never have asked for a more caring sensitive sister even at the young age of 13 she touched so many hearts,x your poem is really lovley,x

I Lost my brother

My brother was found dead last month. He’d been dead for over a month and they couldnt not give use the cause of death. We still dont know exactly. he had been depressed for a long time and i he had isolated himself from us completely the last 5 years. He used to be my rolmodel, my hero. It has been extremely hard to see him change (he refused to see a doctor , or even talk about the subject). Altho his death has bittered me and changed my perspective of the world , and I am haunted by guilt on a regular basis. (for not doing more to get him out of his isolatement…I take some comfort in the fact that my brother is not in pain anymore. that his death means he is finally at piece.

The loss of my sister Maria – 4.8.09

I have been asked to read a poem at my sister’s funeral on Friday and found the one you had posted. I think it is beautiful and would like to use it.

  1. My sister had a stroke 13 mths younger than myself. I turned 60 in January. She had been in a nursing home and died there. I didn’t get to tell her I love you, hug her or kiss her cheek. My family had her cremated and no service not even a memorial. I’m looking for a short poem to tape to a balloon on her BD 2/21 for my own closure.
