Verses & Poems

Angel in Heaven

Your memory will always live in the hearts

of those that have always loved you, dear (Name).

Like an angel in heaven can you watch over

your beloved whom you left behind in deep sorrow.



There comes a time for all of us

when we must say goodbye, but memories

of those we love live on and never die.


Stepping stone

Death is but a stepping stone to the glory

of His presence.


The dearest person

A kind word for everyone, he/she died

as he/she lived, everyone's friend.

His/her cheerful smile, his/her heart of gold.

The dearest person this world could hold.


Cherished and loved

In our hearts he/she will always be,

cherished and loved in our memory.


I miss you

My lips cannot tell how I miss him/her,

My heart cannot tell what to say,

God alone knows how I miss him/her,

In a home that is lonesome today.


Our Dear Child

A little lamb too sweet and pure,

Upon the earth to roam,

An angel came so silently,

And took our dear child home.


In silence we grieve

Silently we grieve,

And brush away our tears,

The memories he/she left behind,

Will last throughout the years.


A page in the book of memory

A page in the book of memory,

Silently turns today.

We remember you in silence,

And make no outward show.

And what it meant to lose you,

No one will ever know. 


Gone is the face we loved so dear


Gone is the face we loved so dear

Silent is the voice we loved to hear.

Too far away for sight or speech,

But not too far for thought to reach,

Sweet to remember him/her once here,

Who, though absent, is just as dear. 



What we'd give if we could say,

Hello, Dad/Mother, in the same old way;

To hear your voice, and see your smile,

To sit with you and chat awhile,

So if you who have a father/mother,

Cherish him/her with care,

For you'll never know the heartache,

Till you see his/her vacant chair.


Fade away

In tears we saw you sinking,

We watched you fade away,

Our hearts were almost broken,

You fought so hard to stay,

But when we saw you sleeping,

So peacefully free from pain,

We could not wish you back,

To suffer that again.


Thinking of you

We think of you in silence,

We often speak your name,

But all we have are memories,

And your picture in a frame.

Your resting place we visit,

And put flowers there with care,

But no one knows the heartache,

As we turn and leave you there.


Still missed, loved, and always dear

So many things have happened,

Since you were called away,

So many things to share with you,

Had you been left to stay,

Every day in some small way,

Memories of you come our way,

Though absent, you are ever near,

Still missed, loved, and always dear. 


You keep me company

Alone, but never quite alone,

I face an empty chair;

But sometimes in the silence,

I imagine you are there,

My companion for so many years,

No longer here with me,

And yet in some mysterious way,

You keep me company.


We have you in our hearts

Though your smile is gone forever,

And your hand we cannot touch,

Still we have so many memories,

Of the ones we loved so much.

Your memory is our keepsake,

With which we'll never part,

God has you in His keeping,

We have you in our hearts.



Two tired eyes are sleeping,

Two willing hands are still.

For one who suffered far too much,

Is resting in God's will.

You never said goodbye to us,

Perhaps its just as well,

We never could have said goodbye,

To one we loved so well.


Road to yesterday

Along the road to yesterday

That leads us straight to you,

Are memories of the happy days

Together we once knew.

And always every evening

We seem to have a way

Of wandering back to meet you

On the road to yesterday.



The moment that you died,

Our hearts split in two,

The one side filled with memories,

The other died with you.

We often lay awake at night,

When the world is fast asleep,

And take a walk down memory lane,

With tears upon our cheeks.


Beautiful memories


Beautiful memories

Are wonderful things,

They last till the longest day,

They never wear out,

They never get lost,

And can never be given away.

To some you may be forgotten,

To others a part of the past.

But to us who loved and lost you,

Your memory will always last.


Praying to God

A million times I've needed you,

A million times I've cried,

If love could have saved you dear,

You never would have died.

Things we feel most deeply,

Are the hardest things to say,

My dearest (Name) I loved you,

In a very special way.

If I could have one lifetime wish,

One dream that could come true,

I'd pray to God with all my heart,

For yesterday and you.


God saw you getting tired

God saw you getting tired,

When a cure was not to be,

So He closed His arms around you,

And He whispered "Come to Me".

You do not deserve what you went through,

And so He gave you rest,

God's garden must be beautiful,

For He only takes from the best.

In time we saw you sinking,

We watched you fade away,

Our hearts were almost broken,

You fought so hard to stay.

But when we saw you sleeping,

So peacefully from pain,

We could not wish you back,

To suffer that again.

If you had spoken before you died,

These are the words you would have replied,

"Weep not for me, but courage take,

And love one another for my sake."


The world to give

If I had all the world to give,
I’d give it, yes, and more,
To hear his/her voice, see his/her smile,
And greet him/her at the door.
But all I can do, dear Father/Mother
Is go and tend your grave,
And leave behind tokens of love
To the best father/mother God made.
I like to think when life is done,
Wherever heaven may be,
He'll/She’ll be standing at the door
Up there to welcome me


Evening Prayer

O Lord support us all the day long
of this troublous life,
‘til the shades lengthen
and the evening comes.
The busy world is hushed,
the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then, Lord in Thy great mercy
grant us a safe lodging,
a holy rest and peace at last
Through Christ our Lord. Amen


The curtain falls

There comes a time for all of us
When we must say goodbye,
But memories of those we love
Live on and never die.
Although the curtain falls at last,
Is that a cause to grieve?
The future life is brighter still
If only we believe.
So trust in God’s eternal care,
And when the Master calls,
We’ll know a fairer world’s beyond,
Although the curtain falls. 


The day God took you home

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.


In the arms of Jesus

If you knew where I am standing
If you could see the sights I see
If you could hear the angels singing
The songs they sing eternally
If you knew the One I'm holding
Could see the smile He smiles at me
If you knew where I am resting
You would not cry for me
I'm resting in the arms of Jesus
No other place would I rather be
So if you shed a tear
Please don't shed it for me
For if you knew where I am resting
You would not cry for me


Miss me - but let me go

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little - But not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me a little - but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone
It's all a part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me - but let me go.


Happy Memories

I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one
I’d like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done
I’d like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways
Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days
I’d like the tears of those who grieve
to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
when life is done


Hail Mary

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.


Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is discord, union;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that we may not so much seek
to be console as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen.


Prayer to obtain The Glorification of

Padre Pio


O JESUS, full of grace and charity, victim for sinners, so impelled by love for us that you willed to die on the cross, I humbly beseech you to glorify in Heaven and on earth the servant of God, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, who generously participated in your sufferings, who loved so much and laboured so faithfully for the glory of your heavenly Father and for the good of souls.


With confidence I beseech you to grant me, through his intercession, the grace… which I ardently desire.

Glory be to the Father… (three times)



God bless you, Mother, in your grave
God keep you in His care,
And may He listen to my heart
And hear my fervent prayer.
I pray that you are safe with Him
For all eternity:
And he will bless you for your love
For all your family.
May you have peace and rest at last
From every care and woe;
And may you sleep in comfort from
The winds and rain and snow. 
God bless you for your smiling lips
And all you tried to do,
To bring us happiness on earth And make our dreams come true.
And up in Heaven Mother dear,
Please say a prayer for me
And for all your family.


Mother Dear

We sat beside your bedside,
Our hearts were crushed and sore;
We did our duty to the end,
‘Till we could do no more. 

In tears we watched you sinking,
We watched you fade away;
And though our hearts were breaking,
We knew you could not stay. 

You left behind some aching hearts.
That loved you most sincere;
We never shall and never will,
Forget you, Mother dear.




We lost a father with a heart of gold
How much we miss him can never be told,
He shared our troubles and helped us along,
If we follow his footsteps,
We will never go wrong. 

We miss you from your fireside chair,
Your loving smile and gentle air,
Your vacant place no one can fill,
We miss you father and always will.

For many years the family chain,
Was closely linked together;
But, oh, that chain is broken now,
The main link gone forever.

The sunshine of our happy home,
Must always clouded be;
But Thou O Lord has sent his cross
We bear it all for Thee. 


Sleep well my little angel

You were a gift sent straight from Heaven.
Given to us from God above.
We didn't know how much you would teach us
About the meaning of true love...
For true love sometimes means letting go
Of someone precious and dear.
That is what we were forced to do...
Although we wanted to keep you here!!!
However, this is quite a selfish wish.
One we know we should ignore...
But, sweet (name), we truly do believe
That God must have needed you more...
Perhaps to be an Angel now,
Full of wisdom and love...
Watching over those of us who love you
From the shining stars above.
We miss you more than you can know.
You will never be replaced...
In our hearts and memories forever,
Will be your sweet and innocent sleeping face.
