The world may never noticeIf a Snowdrop doesn’t bloom,Or even pause to wonderIf the petals fall too soon.But every life that ever forms,Or ever comes to be,Touches the worldin some small wayFor all eternity.
If tears could buildA stairway andMemories were a laneWe would walk rightUp to heaven andBring you back again
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me,And I’m not there to see;If the sun should riseand find your eyesAll 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 tooSo 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.
When tomorrow starts without me,Don’t think we’re far apart,For every time you think of meI’m right here, in your heart
Life is But a Stopping Place
Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be,A resting place along the road,to sweet eternity.We all have different journeys.Different paths along the way,We all were meant to learn some things,but never meant to stay…Our destination is a place,Far greater than we know.For some the journey’s quicker,For some the journey’s slow.And when the journey finally ends,We’ll claim a great reward,And find an everlasting peace,Together with the lord
Forget Me Not
Forget me notWhen I am goneIn hearts and prayersI will live onBe strong, be braveAnd dry your tearsRemember allOur happy years
I Thought of You
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 memoriesand 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.
If Tears Could Build
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
Perhaps They Are Not Stars
Perhaps they are not stars,but rather openings in heavenwhere the love of our lost onespours through and shinesdown upon us to let us knowthey are happy.
Loving Memories Never Die
Loving memories never dieAs years roll on and days pass byIn our hearts a memory is keptOf one we lovedAnd will never forget.
The Lord is my Shepherd;I shall not want.He makes me lie downin green pasturesHe leads me beside still waters.He restores my soul.Even though I walk through thevalley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil,for you are with me;Your rod and your staff,they comfort me.Surely goodness and mercy willfollow me all the days of my life,and I shall dwell in the houseof the Lord forever.
