May you see God’s light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
turn your heart to stone,
May you always remember
when the shadows
You do not walk alone.
If I Could Catch A Rainbow|
If I could catch a
rainbow, I would do it, just for you,
And, share with you, its
beauty, on the days you're feeling blue.
If I could, I would
build a mountain, you could call your very own.
A place to find
serenity, a place just to be alone.
If I could, I would take your
troubles, and toss them into the sea.
But, all these things, I'm
finding, are impossible for me.
I cannot build a mountain, or
catch a rainbow fair;
but, let me be, what I know best,
who's always there.
I promise to defend you, should the occasion
And, I promise to wipe away the tears,
stream from your weeping eyes.
Let me be the trusted Friend, the
one that you know best.
I will never leave you, on that, you can

‘Say not in grief ‘he is no more’ but live in thankfulness that he was’
Perhaps they are not
stars in the sky,
but rather openings
where our loved ones
to let us know they
Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on,|
memories never fade
because a loved one’s gone.
Those we love can
never be more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is memory,
they’ll live on in the heart.
There will come a day|
when your tears of sorrow
will softly flow
into tears of remembrance…
and your heart will begin to heal itself…
and grieving will be interrupted by episodes of joy…
and you will
hear the whisper of hope.
There will come a day
when you will
welcome the tears of remembrance…
as a sun shower of the soul…
turning of the tide…
a promise of peace.
There will come a day
when you will…
go on believing…
and treasure the
tears of remembering.

May the long time sun shine upon you
All love surround you
the pure light within you
Guide your way home.
The falling rain dissolves into mist
And the thunder begins to
As the sporadic lightning fades
An arch of color pours from
Rainbows appear after mighty storms
When things look
Just when the sky is darkest gray,
Out of Heaven does
a rainbow burst.
God first sent the rainbow to Noah
As a sign
that His word is true
The rainbow's eternal message
to me and you.
The rainbow is a sign of God's promise
will guide us through any storm
That He will ease all our troubles,
No matter what their form.
When you feel battered by life's
And you are filled with doubt and dismay
God's rainbow is coming,
For it's blessing you have only to pray.
To be honest with you,
have the words to make you feel better,
but I do have the arms to give you a hug,
ears to listen to whatever you want to talk about,
and I have a heart; a heart that's aching to see you smile again.
Pueblo Indian Prayer|
Hold on to what is good,
Even if it's
a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a
tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
it's a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
Even if it's
easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
Even if someday I'll be gone
away from you.
He's somewhere on the ocean now that's where he oughta be |
hand on the starboard rail he's wavin' back at me.
The Captain And The Kid Lyrics
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God has chosen for me.
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 or play.
undone must stay that way;
I've now found peace at the end of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Oh yes, these things, I too
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
Look for the
sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seems
all to brief;
Don't lengthen your pain with undue grief.
your heart and peace to thee,
God wanted me now-He set me free

Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there;
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond
glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft
stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
am not there; I did not die.
Mary Elizabeth Frye - 1932
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 but let me go.
this is a journey that we all must take and each must go alone
all a part of the Master’s plan a step on the road to home.
are lonely and sick at heart, Go to the friends we know,
your sorrow in doing good deeds,
Miss me, but let me go.

Irish Poem |
When we lose someone
we love it seems that time stands still.
What moves through us is a
silence, a quiet sadness,
A longing for one more day, one more word,
one more touch,
We may not understand why you left this earth so
or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye,
little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died,
that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to
We will see you again some day, in a heavenly place
where there is no parting.
A place where there are no words that
Could Build a Stairway
If tears could build a
and memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to
and bring you back again.
With tears of
we cry each
day, in angel's arms
you were carried away.
memories of love and
laughter shall not fade,
for inside our
you will always stay.
Wherever We Are
They whom we love
and lose are no longer
They are now...
wherever we are.
The tide recedes but leaves behind
bright seashells on the
The sun goes down, but gentle
warmth still lingers on the
The music stops, and yet it echoes
on in sweet refrains.....
For every joy that passes,
something beautiful remains.
"May tender memories soften your grief,
May fond recollection bring you relief,
And may you find comfort
and peace in the thought
Of the joy that knowing your loved one
For time and space can never divide
Or keep your
loved one from your side.
When memory paints in colors true,
the happy hours that belonged to you."
I like the way they looked down from the sky
And didn’t seem
to mind the way I cried.
And didn’t say, “Now wipe away those tears,”
Or, “Tell us,
tell us what’s the matter here!”
But shining through the dark they calmly stayed,
held me in their quiet way.
I felt them watching over me, each one—
And let me cry and
cry till I was done.
- Deborah Chandra
