    Forever In Our Hearts

    By: Author Unknown

    God looked around His garden
    And He found an empty place.
    He then looked down upon
    This earth and saw your tired face.
    He put His arms around you
    And lifted you to rest.
    God's garden must be beautiful,
    He always takes the best.
    He knew that you were in pain.
    He knew that you would never
    Get well on earth again.
    So He closed your weary eyelids
    And whispered, "Peace Be Thine."
    He then took you up to Heaven with
    Hands gentle and so kind.
    It broke our hearts to lose you,
    But you did not go alone.
    For part of us went with you
    The day God called you Home.
    They say NOBODY is perfect so just call me NOBODY

    When tomorrow starts without me.


    When tomorrow starts without me,
    and I'm not there to see;
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes,
    all filled with tears for me;
    I wish so much you wouldn't cry,
    the way you did today,
    while thinking of the many things,
    we didn't get to say.
    I know how much you love me,
    as much as I love you,
    and each time that you think of me,
    I know you'll miss me too;
    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    please try to understand,
    that an angel came and called my name,
    and took me by the hand,
    and said my place was ready,
    in heaven far above,
    and that I'd have to leave behind,
    all those I dearly love.
    But as I turned to walk away,
    a tear fell from my eye,
    for all my life, I'd always thought,
    I didn't want to die.
    I had so much to live for,
    so much yet to do,
    it seemed almost impossible,
    that I was leaving you.
    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    the good ones and the bad,
    I thought of all the love we shared,
    and all the fun we had.
    If I could relive yesterday,
    just even for a while,
    I'd say good-bye and kiss you
    and maybe see you smile.
    But then I fully realized,
    that this could never be,
    for emptiness and memories,
    would take the place of me.
    And when I thought of worldly things,
    I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    my heart was filled with sorrow.
    But when I walked through heaven's gates,
    I felt so much at home.
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    from His great golden throne,
    He said, "This is eternity,
    and all I've promised you.
    Today for life on earth is past,
    but here it starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow,
    but today will always last,
    and since each day's the same day,
    there's no longing for the past.
    But you have been so faithful,
    so trusting and so true.
    Though there were times you did some things,
    you knew you shouldn't do.
    But you have been forgiven
    and now at last you're free.
    So won't you take My hand
    and share My life with me?"
    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    don't think we're far apart,
    for every time you think of me,
    I'm right here, in your heart.


    Poem written by Erica Shea Liupaeter

    All people want is someone to listen.

    This is one I've used before when I was honored to speak at a friend's funeral:

    I'm Free (Author Unknown)

    Don't grieve for me now, for I'm free.
    I'm following the path God laid for me.
    I took God's hand when I heard the call;
    I turned my back and I left it all.

    I could not stay another day
    to laugh, to love, to work, or play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way;
    I found that place at the close of the day.

    If my parting has left a void,
    then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
    Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
    I wish you the sunshine of each tomorrow.
    My life's been full, I savored much,
    Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
    don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your heart and share with me -
    God wanted me now, God set me free.

    Do believe I'll never leave you
    Always I'll be in your heart
    Don't forget my soul is near you
    Death might take my presence from you,
    Yet we'll never be apart

    His "dying" Time

    As my life begins to ebb away
    I feel so all alone
    No one can walk this path for me
    I must make it on my own
    Although I can share the journey
    It's through my eyes you see
    the wonder that surrounds me now
    my spiruality.

    I wish that I could show you
    all the things I see revealed
    But until our time to leave this earth
    Some things are kept concealed..

    I am being shown the way
    from this life to the next
    there's so much to take in all once
    for you, you'd be perplexed.

    For you dwell within the physical
    it's where you comprehend
    While I float between two worlds
    of which there is no end.

    I understand so well your fear
    I wish that you could see
    that what I see beyond this life. . .
    is life eternally.

    As my time to leave grows nearer
    I will try to let you know
    each step I'm on along this path
    before I have to go.

    I'm not afraid as you can see
    I've traveled down the path
    of what they call my "dying" time
    and seen the aftermath.

    I think our "dying" time
    is our time to prepare
    ourselves and those around us
    for the end that is so near.

    It's time of readjustments
    a time of letting go
    somehow life has prepared us
    somehow these things we know.

    My mind now seems to be
    more concentrated "there"
    No longer do I long for life
    as I knew it here.

    I'm ready now to say good-bye
    and I know how you will grieve
    but please have faith. . . we'll meet again
    this you must believe.

    I shared my journey with you
    I'm so glad that you were here
    And as we've been our whole life through. .
    please trust that I'll be near.

    When that day or night comes to you
    I will help you comprehend
    remember you won't be alone
    I will be there till the end.

    LISTEN TO THE WHISPERS OF THE MOURNING

    Reach up to the heavens with arms open wide
    Take hold of its beauty, breath it inside
    Take in it's majesty, memorize its grand views
    Engulf its bright lights and magnificent hues.

    Look above the ages trees that touch the sky
    And listen to the whispers of the mourning cry
    Listen through the whirring breezes and you can hear the names
    Sobbing with great heartache, crying out with such pains
    Names of all loved ones with silent prayers unsaid
    Echoing with profoudness inside my head.

    And now the sun burns in my ears your sweet voice
    Saying dont thirst for what once was, this is the Lord's choice
    Now I know there's beauty below, but up here there's no compare
    You can lay your head upon the angel's knee
    And know no pain, just filled with such glee.

    I know you miss me, I miss you too
    But I'm sending an angel to watch over you
    The angel will let you know I'm hear
    To ease your heartache and wipe your tears
    And the next time you reach up to the heavens above
    You'll feel the kiss of all my love.

    So please dont let the grief consume your soul
    And remember through God, you too can be whole
    And when you think you can no longer stand
    I'm up here in heaven with God, waiting to take your hand
    So listen beyond the whisper's of the mourning and you'll see
    I'm with the Lord our God
    I'm finally free.

    I compiled a rememberence book about my "friend" when he died, and these poems were in it.
