It's difficult to convey the mix of emotions that arises when a loved one passes. We look for words to capture what we feel and seem to come up short because there are no words that can make saying goodbye easier. It is true that words cannot mend the sorrow, but they can provide a great source of comfort and help you say goodbye. To help remember loved ones, below are a few beautiful funeral poems that can be read at a service, digitally shared, or printed out. We've also included the text-based version below each poem image so that you can copy and paste the text if case you would like to add a verse to plantable memorial products that grow wildflowers in memory. Little Snowdrop (Full Version) The world may never notice If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom, Or even pause to wonder If the petals fall too soon. But every life that ever forms, Or ever comes to be, Touches the world in some small way For all eternity. The little one we longed for Was swiftly here and gone. But the love that was then planted Is a light that still shines on. And though our arms are empty, Our hearts know what to do. For every beating of our hearts Says that we love you. ~Author Unknown i carry your heart with me i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it (anywhere i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling) i fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet) i want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true) and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart) ~E. E. Cummings 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 in a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain. Of birds in circling flight, I am the starshine of the night. I am in the flowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there. I do not die. ~Mary Elizabeth Frye Time Time cannot steal the treasures that we carry in our hearts. Nor ever dim the shining thoughts our cherished past imparts For the memories of the ones we loved still cast a gentle glow, To grace our days and light our paths, wherever we may go. ~Author Unknown I Thought of You Today I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart. ~Author Unknown 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 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 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. ~David Romano Forget me not When I am gone In hearts and prayers I will live on Be strong, be brave And dry your tears Remember all Our happy years ~Author Unknown A Silent Tear Just close your eyes and you will see All the memories that you have of me Just sit and relax and you will find I'm really still there inside your mind Don't cry for me now I'm gone For I am in the land of song There is no pain, there is no fear So dry away that silent tear Don't think of me in the dark and cold For here I am, no longer old I'm in that place that's filled with love Known to you all, as "up above" ~Author Unknown Life Well Lived A life well lived is a precious gift, of hope and strength and grace, from someone who has made our world a brighter, better place. It's filled with moments, sweet and sad with smiles and sometimes tears, with friendships formed and good times shared, and laughter through the years. A life well lived is a legacy, of joy and pride and pleasure, a living, lasting memory our grateful heart's will treasure. - Author Unknown Seed paper memorial favors are made from recycled material and are embedded with a blend of wildflower seeds.
