God Welcomed Him To His Loving Home

God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be. He wrapped him in his loving arms and whispered ‘Come with me.’ He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend. He faced his pain with courage, until the very end. He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was…

Love Lives On (Those we love are never really lost…)

Those we love are never really lost to us – we feel them in so many special ways- through friends they always cared about and dreams they left behind, in beauty that they added to our days… in words of wisdom we still carry with us and memories that never will begone… Those we love…

Asleep

As far from pity as complaint, As cool to speech as stone, As numb to revelation As if my trade were bone. As far from time as history, As near yourself to-day As children to the rainbow’s scarf, Or sunset’s yellow play To eyelids in the sepulchre. How still the dancer lies, While color’s revelations…

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 for long And not with your head bowed low Remember the love that once we shared Miss…

Do Not Stand At my Grave And Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I did not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting…

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…

While Waiting for Thee

Don’t weep at my grave, For I am not there, I’ve a date with a butterfly To dance in the air. I’ll be singing in the sunshine, Wild and free, Playing tag with the wind, While I’m waiting for thee. The Comfort and Sweetness of Peace After the clouds, the sunshine, after the winter, the…

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, lon I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair. And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy…
