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.  

No morning dawns, no night returns
But that we think of you.
Those left behind are very good
But none replaces you.
Many a silent tear is shed
When we are all alone
The one we love so very much
The one we call our own.

How we miss the welcome footsteps
Of the one we loved so dear.
oft we listen for his coming
Fully sure that he is near.
Thou are gone but not forgotten
Fresh our love will ever be
For as long as there is memory
We will always think of thee.

Our thoughts are ever with you
Though you have passed away
And those who have loved you dearly
Are thinking of you today.  

Just a thought of sweet remembrance
Just a memory, sad and true
Just the love and sweet devotion
Of the one who thinks of you.

Treasured thoughts of one so dear
Often bring a silent tear
Thoughts of scenes long past
Years roll on but memories last.

No length of time can take away
My thoughts of you today.  

Always in our thoughts
Forever in our hearts

Silent thoughts of times together
Hold memories which will last forever.

In Our Hearts

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.  

Gone are the days we used to share
But in our hearts you are always there.
The gates of memory will never close
We miss you more than anyone knows.
With tender love and deep regret
We who love you will never forget.

I pray you’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
I pray we’ll find your light
And hold it in our hearts
Help us find a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith, so we’ll be safe.

Wonderful memories of one so dear
Treasured still with a love sincere
In our hearts she is living yet
We loved her too dearly to forget.  

When ties of love are broken
And loved ones have to part
It leaves a wound that never heals
In ever aching heart.  

Wonderful memories woven in gold
This is a picture I tenderly hold
Deep in my heart a memory is kept
To love, to cherish, never to forget.  

Within our store of memories
He/She holds a place apart
For no one else can ever be
More cherished in our hearts.  

His portrait in its silver frame
The ravages of time may dim
In our hearts he’s still the same
We hold bright memories of him.  

Nothing can ever take away
The love a heart holds dear
Fond memories linger every day
Remembrance keeps him near.  

Although you can’t be here with me
We’re  truly not apart
Until the final breath I take
You’ll be living in my heart.  

Loving memories of one so dear
Treasured still with a love sincere
In our hearts she is living yet
We loved her too dearly to forget.  

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

There’s always a place for U in my heart
That way we’ll never really be apart.  

I keep in my heart the love of the past
For there it was planted forever to last.

In the hearts of those who loved you
You will always be there.  


Oft in the stilly night Ere slumbers chains hath bound me Fond memory brings the light Of other days around me. The smiles, the tears of childhood’s years The words of love then spoken The eyes that shone now dimmed & gone The cheerful hearts now broken.

Years fly by like Autumn leaves
But heartache and tears remain
All I have left is precious memories
of you, for today, for tomorrow
And until my life is through.

It’s lonely here without you We miss you more each day For life is not the same to us Since you were called away (name) To your resting place we visit Place flowers there with care But no one knows our heartache When we turn and leave you there.

It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn’t go alone
For a part of me went with you
The day God called you home.

When ties of love are broken
And loved ones have to part
It leaves a wound that never heals
In ever aching heart.

The moment that you died
My heart was torn in two
One side filled with heartache
The other died with you.

The tears in my eyes I can wipe away
The ache in my heart will always stay.

With aching heart and tears unseen
Wishing your absence was only a dream

Our Tears

Though tears in my eyes don’t glisten
And my face is not always sad
There is never a night or morning
But I think of the mum/dad I had
Not a day do I forget you
In my heart you are always here
For I loved you and missed you
As it ends the second year.

Fondly loved and deeply mourned
Heart of my heart, I miss you so
Often, my darling, my tears flow
Dimming your picture before my eyes
But never the one in my heart that lies
The stars seem dim as I whisper low
My darling boy, I miss you so.

It is sad to walk the road alone
Instead of side by side
But to all there comes a moment
When the ways of life divide.
You gave me years of happiness
Then came sorrow and tears
But you left me beautiful memories
I will treasure through the years.

A few more steps along life’s road
Perhaps a few more years
Then by God’s grace we’ll meet again
Beyond the vale of tears.

Every tear is a prism through which I see
A rainbow of emotions and memories
Through fate has led you to another place
True moments hold meaning time cant erase

Treasured thoughts of one so dear
Often bring a silent tear
Thoughts of scenes long past
Years roll on but memories last.

Loved with a love beyond telling
Missed with a grief beyond all tears
To the world he was just one
To us he was all the world.

If tear drops could build a stairway
And memory a lane
We’d walk the long road to reach you
And bring you home again.

Silently we grieve
And brush away our tears
The memories he/she left behind
Will last throughout the years

Memories of You

Thoughts wander as daylight fades
To the land of long ago.
Memory paints the scenes of old
In the gold of the twilight glow.
We seem to see in the dim light
A face we loved the best
And think of her when the sun’s rays
Go down in the far off west.

Beautiful Memories are wonderful
things. They last till the longest day
They never wear out or 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.

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.

It’s hard to believe your no longer here
We think of you, you feel so near
In some small way every single day
Memories of you come our way.

Always a smile instead of a frown
Always a hand when one is down
Always true, thoughtful and kind
Wonderful memories you left behind.

As time unfolds another year
Memories keep you ever near
Silent thoughts of time together
Hold memories that will last forever.

So much has changed since your gone
Through ups and downs our lives move on
But as time rolls by one thing remains true
We’ll always have memories of you.

Loving memories of one so dear
Treasured still with a love sincere
In our hearts she is living yet
We loved her too dearly to forget.

No space of time, no lapse of years
Can dim the treasured past
A loving memory keeps it dear
Affection holds it fast.

Memories are like threads of gold
They never tarnish or grow old.

Tenderly we treasure the past
With memories that will always last.

As you were you will always be
Treasured forever in our memory.

Treasured memories like a golden chain
Link us until we meet again.

Sincere and true in heart and mind
A memory sweet you left behind.

Words are few, feelings deep,
Memories of you are mine to keep.

In God I Trust

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 knew that she was suffering
That the hills were hard to climb
So he closed her weary eyelids
And whispered, Peace be thine.
Away in the beautiful hills of God
By the valley of rest so fair
Some day, we know not when
We will meet our loved one there.

O Lord support us all the day long
of this troublous life
Til the shades lengthen
and the evening comes
Til 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 the last
Through Christ Our Lord

Keep her Jesus, in Thy keeping
Until I reach that golden shore
Then dear Saviour let me have her
And love her as I did before.

Looking back with memories
Upon the path you trod
We bless the hours we had with you
And leave the rest with God.

Only a memory of bygone days
And a sigh for a face unseen
A constant feeling that God alone
Knows what should have been.

God grant us the serenity to accept
Things we cannot change
Courage to change the things we can
And wisdom to know the difference.

Resting where no shadows fall
In peaceful sleep he awaits us all
God will link the broken chain
When one by one we meet again.

God knows how much I miss her
Never shall her memory fade
Loving thoughts shall ever wander
To the spot where she is laid.

Missing You

It only takes a little space
To write how much we miss you
But it will take the rest of our lives
To forget the way we lost you.

Those we love don’t go away
They walk beside us every day
Unseen, unheard, but always near
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Although we smile and make no fuss
No one misses him more than us
And when old times we oft recall
That’s when we miss him most of all.

We miss you now, our hearts are sore
As time goes by we miss you more
Your loving smile, your gentle face
No one can ever fill your vacant place.

Sadly missed along life’s way
Quietly remembered every day
No longer in our life to share
But in our hearts you are always there.

Your life was a blessing
Your memory a treasure…
You were loved beyond words
And missed beyond measure.

Though absent you are ver near
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Forever remembered
Forever missed

I miss you more than words can say
Memories of you will always stay.

Remembering You

This day is remembered and quietly kept
No words are needed, we shall never forget
For those we love don’t go away
They walk beside us every day
Unseen and unheard, but always near
So loved, so missed, and so very dear.

Gone is the face we loved so dear
Silent is the face we loved to hear
Too far away for sight or speech
But not too far for thought to reach
Sweet to remember him once here
Who, though absent, is just as dear.

Softly the leaves of memory fall
Gently we gather
And treasure them all
Some may forget now that
you are gone, we will always
remember no matter how long.

Sweet memories will linger forever
Time cannot change them, it’s true
Years that come cannot sever
Our loving remembrance of you.

Your touch, your smile
Was always so tender
For today, tomorrow
We will always remember.

Sunshine passes, shadows fall
Love’s remembrance outlasts all
Though years be many or few, all
are filled with remembrance of you.

Resting where no shadows fall
Lovingly remembered by us all.

A little tribute, small and tender
Just to say we still remember.

There is a link death cannot sever
Love and remembrance last forever.

Life and Death

Do not think of me in the night;
And see my death.
But walk with me a while,
Til you reach the golden morning light;
And see my smile.

I cannot say, And I will not say
that he is dead…He is just away. With
a cheery smile and a wave of the hand
he has wandered into an unknown land.
And left us dreaming how very fair,
it’s needs must be since he lingers there.

Remember friend as you walk by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now you will surely be,
Prepare thyself to follow me.
