They who think that you are gone,
Because no more your face they see,
Are wrong, for in our hearts you live
And always will in memory.
Down a road that's calm and peaceful,
Guided by God's loving hand,
He has gone upon a journey
To a distant, brighter land.
And although our hearts are heavy
With sorrow we still bear,
It helps to bring us comfort,
Knowing he is happy there.
The is no death! The stars go down
to rise upon some fairer shore,
And bright in Heaven's Jewelled crown,
They shine forever more.
Every day, in some small way,
Memories of you come our way.
Though absent, you are ever near,
Still missed, still loved, and ever dear.
This day we do remember,
A loving thought we give
To ones no longer with us
But in our hearts still live
The memory we hold is a treasure,
The loss a life time regret
But we who loved you dearly,
Try to think God's will was best.
Years go by, Memories stay
As near and dear as yesterday.
Death ends all earthly needs
And the soul passed on into its Destiny.
Memories in our hearts today
Mean more than words can ever say.
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 fill your vacant place.
Long days, long nights, you bore the pain
And hoped for cure, but all in vain
Then God decided what was best,
He took you home and gave you rest.
We think of you with love today
As we have done so often,
And feel once more the bitter blow
That does not seem to soften.
Not now, but in the coming years,
It may be in the better land
We'll know the meaning of our tears
And then some day we'll understand.
Wishing today as we wished before
That God could have spared you many years more.
In our heart your memory is kept.
To love, to cherish and to never forget.
We are sad within our memory,
Lonely are our thoughts today.
For the one loved so dearly,
Has forever been called away.
Who shall say the grief is lessened
Though the smile may hide the tears
Memories keep the wound still open
Despite the passing of the years.
Although we smile and make no fuss
No one misses him more than us.
And when old times we oft recall,
It's then we miss you most of all.
Loving memories never die
As years roll on and days pass by.
In our hearts a memory is kept
Of the ones we love and will never forget.
Till memory fades and life departs,
You live forever in our hearts.
When days are dark, friends few,
Grandma dear, we think of you.
Friends are friends if they are true,
We lost our best when we lost you.
We shall remember while the light lives
And in darkness we shall not forget

The joys that he missed on life's highway.
May he find in God's garden of rest.
Until the day breaks,
And the shadows flee away.
Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe on His gentle breast.
Sunshine fades and shadows fall,
But sweet remembrance out lasts all.
A page in our book of memories
Is silently turned today.
To live in the hearts of those we leave is not to die.
May her soul rest in peace,
And perpetual light shine upon her.
We cannot, Lord, Thy purpose see,
Save all is well that's done by Thee.
Oh, for the touch of a vanished hand,
And the sound of a voice that is still.
We treasure still with love sincere,
Beautiful memories of one so dear.
Fond memories linger every day;
Remembrance keeps him near.
There is a sad and sweet remembrance,
There is memory fond and true;
There is a token of affection
And a heartache still for you.
There's an open gate at the end of the road,
Through which each one must go alone;
And there is a light we cannot see
Our Father claims His own.
Beyond the gate, our loved ones
Find happiness and rest,
And there is comfort in the thought
That a loving God knows best.
Heaven's gate swung gently open,
The Master called softly, "Come,"
And you, dear one, took the Master's hand,
And your work on earth was done.
We'll never cease to miss you,
And shed many silent tears,
Because we cannot share with you
Our hopes, our joys, our fears.
But one day, in God's garden,
When the Master calls us to come.
You'll be at the gates with open arms
And say to us, "Welcome Home!
His memory is as dear today
As in the hour he passed away.
Time takes away the edge of grief,
But memory turns back every leaf.
And while she sleeps a peaceful sleep,
Her memory we shall always keep.
You, dear parents, rest in sleep,
Your loving memory we will keep.
For her, life more abundant,
For us, a guiding star.
To have them here in the same old way,
Would be our greatest wish today.
O blinded eyes that cannot see thy face,
O empty arms that cannot hold thee near.
O happy hours we once enjoyed.
How sweet their memory still.
But death has left a loneliness
The world can never fill.
As angels keep their watch up there,
Please, God, just let her know
That we down here do not forget,
We loved and miss her so.
Looking back with memories
Upon the path you trod,
We bless the hours we had with you,
And leave the rest with God.
Not dead, but passed beyond
The mist that hovers here,
Into the newer, larger life
Of that unclouded sphere.
Your presence we miss,
Your memory we treasure;
Loving you always,
Forgetting you never.
Those we love we never lose
For always they will be
Loved, remembered, treasured,
In our memory.
That a loving God knows best.
His weary hours and days of pain,
His troubled nights are past;
And in our aching hearts we know
He has found peace at last.
Nothing can take away
The love a heart holds dear;
Fond memories linger every day,
Remembrance keeps him near.
Those whom we love go out of sight,
But never out of mind;
Still cherished in the lonely hearts
Of those they leave behind.
Some day, some time, our eyes shall see
The ones we loved so well.
Some day we'll clasp their loving hands
And never say farewell.
Sweet memories will linger forever,
Time cannot change them, it's true;
Years that may come cannot sever
Our loving remembrance of you.
Take up thy cross, and follow Him,
Nor think 'till death to lay it down.
For only he who bears the cross,
May hope to wear the glorious crown.
Oh, God of Hosts
Be with us yet,
Lest we forget,
Lest we forget.
They shall not grow old
As we who are left grow old;
Age shall not wither them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning,
We will remember them.
Too dearly loved to be forgotten.
"Only goodnight, beloved, not farewell."
"Beyond the sunset."
Always in our hearts.
Until we meet again.
Not just today, but every day,
In silence we remember.
Calm and peaceful he is sleeping,
Sweetest rest that follows pain;
We who loved him sadly miss him;
And trust in God to meet again.
We cannot bring the old days back,
When we were all together,
But secret tears and loving thoughts
Will live with us forever.
May his soul, and all the souls
Of the faithful departed,
Through the mercy of God,
Rest in peace.
Oh, how patient in thy suffering,
When no hand could give thee ease;
God, the Helper of the helpless,
Saw thy pain and gave thee peace.
This world may change from year to year,
And friends from day to day;
But never shall the one we loved,
From memory pass away.
Each lonely night brings thoughts of you,
Each eventide a prayer;
For in the hearts that loved you well,
You always will be there.
Jesus said unto here, I am the
Resurrection and the Life.
He that believeth in Me,
though he were dead, yet
shall he live. and Whosoever
liveth and believeth
in Me shall never die.
Believest thou this?
John 11:25-26.
Oh, what can equal joy diving,
And what can sweeter be,
Than knowing that the soul is saved
To all eternity.
Safe in the Lord without one doubt,
By virtue of the Blood;
And nothing can destroy the life
That's hid with Christ in God.
The golden gate stood open
One year ago today;
With farewells left unspoken
Our dear one slipped away.
He suffered much in silence,
His spirit did not bend;
He faced the pain with courage
Until the very end.
We think of you, dear (first name),
And our hearts are filled with pain.
This world would be a heaven
Could we hear your voice again.
Years have swiftly passed,
But still we don't forget,
For in the hearts that loved you best,
Your memory lingers yet.
Within our hearts we always keep
A special place for you,
And try to do our best to live
As you would want us to.
As we loved you, so we miss you,
In our memory you are near;
Loved, remembered, longed for always
With the passing of each year.
Sometimes a note of a song
Brings us a thought of you.
Sometimes a flower as we pass along,
Or a sky that is azure blue;
Or a silver lining in the clouds
When the sunshine's peeping through.
They who think that you are gone,
Because no more your face they see,
Are wrong, for in our hearts you live
And always will in memory.
This day we do remember,
A loving thought we give
To ones no longer with us
But in our hearts still live.
Remembrance is a golden chain
Death tries to break but all invain,
To have, to love, and then to part
Is the greatest sorrow of one's heart.
Time may wipe out many things
But this they'll wipe out never,
The memory of those happy days
When we were all together.
A year has passed dear (name),
Since you were called away;
How well do I remember
That sad and weary day.
Suffering much, you murmured not,
We watched you day by day
We prayed that your dear life,
Would not be taken away.
A million times I've needed you
A million times I've cried,
If love could have saved you
You never would have died.
Things we feel most deeply
Are the hardest things to say,
My dearest one, 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.
We do not forget, nor do we intend,
We'll think of you to the very end,
Forgotten by some you may be,
In our memory you will ever be.
Only a memory of bygone days,
And a sigh for a face unseen;
A constant feeling that God alone
Knows best what should have been.
'Tis sweet to know we'll meet again,
Where troubles are no more,
And that the one we loved so well,
Has just gone on before.
And while she lies in peaceful sleep,
Her memory we shall always keep.
A year has passed since that sad day,
When one we loved was called away,
God took him Home, it was His will,
Within our hearts he liveth still.
We watched you suffer day by day,
And could not help in any way,
But just stood by and saw you pass,
Into the Saviour's arms at last.
Some day we hope to meet you,
Some day we know not when,
We shall meet in a better land,
And never part again.
The rolling stream of life goes on,
But still the empty chair,
Reminds us of the face, the smile,
Of one who once sat there.
Just a sweet remembrance,
Just a memory sad and true;
Just the love and sweet devotion,
Of one who thinks of you.
We who loved you, sadly miss you,
As it dawns another year;
In our lonely hours of thinking,
Thoughts of you are ever near.
To have, to hold, and then to part,
Is the greatest sorrow of our heart.
Forever missed,
Forever treasured,
Loving you always,
Forgetting you never.
If you have a tender message,
Or a loving word to say;
Do not wait till you forget it,
But whisper it today.
The tender word unspoken,
The letter never sent;
The long forgotten message,
The wealth of love unspent.
For these some hearts are breaking,
For these some loved ones wait;
So show them that you care for them,
Before it is too late.
Things I feel most deeply,
Are the hardest things to say,
My dearest one, I loved you,
In a very special way.
If I could have one lifetime wish,
One dream that would come true,
I'd pray to God with all my heart,
For yesterday and you.
Beside your grave I often stand,
With heart both crushed and sore,
Silent till the sweet words come,
"Not lost, but gone before."
He counts the tears I shed,
And whispers "He only sleeps,
Your loved one is not dead".
So I'll be brave dear ( ),
And pray to God each day,
And when He calls me Home to you,
Your smile will guide the way.
How we miss the welcome footsteps,
Of the one we loved so dear;
Oft we listen for her coming,
Fully sure that she is near.
You are gone but not forgotten,
Fresh our love will ever be,
For as long as there is memory,
We will always think of thee.
Treasured thoughts of one so dear,
Often bring a silent tear,
Thoughts return to scenes long past,
Years roll on but memories last.
A page in the book of memory,
Silently turns today,
We remember in silence,
And make no outward show,
And what it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.

Mother, Wife, Daughter & Sister

God has called our mother
Away from a world of strife,
To shine among the angels
In a fairer brighter life.
Safe from all grief and sin,
Forever and forever
Where all is pure within.
Our hearts are full of sorrow,
And tears have dimmed our eyes
But we shall meet her once again,
in the home beyond the skies.
Two dear bright eyes, a tender smile,
A loving heart that knew no guile,
Deep trust in God that all was right,
Her joy to make some other bright.
If sick or suffering one she knew,
Some gentle act of love she'd do,
No thought of self, but of ``the other''
I know that He said ``Well done dear Mother.
Dear Mother, you are not forgotten
Though on earth you are no more
Still in memory you are with us
As you always were before.
What would we give her hand to clasp,
Her patient face to see,
To hear her voice, to see her smile
As in the days that used to be,
But some sweet day we'll meet again
Beyond the toil and strife,
And clasp each other's hand once more
In Heaven, that happy life.
Always willing to help others,
When herself should be at rest,
She was the kindest of Mothers
Now amongst Heavenly blessed.
A silent thought, a secret tear,
Keeps her memory ever dear.
Loving and kind in all her ways,
Upright and just to the end of her days;
Sincere and true, in her heart and mind.
Beautiful memories left behind.
'Tis but a year ago today
Since God called you away.
And we who loved you most of all
Miss you more each day.
We are sad within our memory,
Lonely are our hearts today;
For the one we loved so dearly
has forever been called away.
My lips cannot tell how I miss her,
My heart cannot tell what to say;
God alone knows how I miss her,
In a home that is lonesome today.
Take up thy cross and follow Him,
Nor think till death to lay it down;
For only he who bears the cross
May hope to bear the glorious crown
In that bright eternal city
Where no tears e'er dim the eye;
In the one of many mansions,
We will meet her bye and bye.
The depths of sorrow we cannot tell.
Of the loss of one we loved so well
And while she sleeps a peacefull sleep
Her memory shall always keep.
O happy hours we once enjoyed
How sweet their memory still.
But death has left a loneliness
The world can never fill.
No one knows how much we miss you,
No one knows the bitter pain
We have suffered, since we lost you
Life has never been the same.
In our heart your memory lingers
Sweetly tender, fond and true,
There is not a day, dear mother,
That we do not think of you.
We miss her when we need a friend,
On her we could always depend,
She cheered us in sickness and soothed our pain,
God grant some day we'll meet again.
O how oft she comes before us,
Her dear face so sweet and true;
Resting now in peace with Jesus
Loving hearts still long for you.
When twilight hour draws near,
And sunset frames the sky,
We think of you, dear mother,
And the happy days gone by.
Thoughts of you come drifting back
Within our dreams to stay,
To know that you are resting
When the twilight ends the day.
A mother who gave us the best years of her life.
Who cherished our secrets, our sorrows, our strifes,
Who taught us to love and taught us to pray.
Dear mother in heaven, God bless you today.
You are always in our minds.
No matter what we do.
All the time within our hearts.
There are thoughts of you.
Deep in the heart lies a picture
of a loved one laid to rest;
In memory's frame we shall keep it.
Because she was one of the best.
Her loving face I hope to see again.
Though the days have passed away.
Sleep on, dear one, and take your rest,
We miss you most who loved you best.
Sunshine passes, shadows fall,
Love's rememberance outlasts all;
And though the years be many or few,
They are filled with rememberance dear, of you.
Ever loving, ever true,
To the task God set for you;
Mother dear, He knew 'twas done,
So called you home, our dearest one.
Just when your life was brightest,
Just when your years were best,
You were called from this world of sorrow
To a home of eternal rest.
In our home she is fondly remembered,
Sweet memories cling to her name;
Those who loved her in life sincerely,
Still love her in death just the same.
Three years have past and gone
Since one we loved so well
Was taken from our home on earth
With Jesus Christ to dwell.
The flowers we placed on her grave
May wither and decay
But the love for her who sleeps beneath
Shall never fade away.
No pen can write, no tongue can tell
Our sad and bitter loss.
But God alone has helped so well
To bear our heavy cross.
In all the world we shall not find
A heart so wonderfully kind;
So soft a voice, so sweet a smile,
An inspiration so worth while.
A sympathy so sure, so deep
A love so beautiful to keep.
In loving memory of our daughter
These are things death can never sever
Age, tears, pain nor cruel care
Can harm her or enter memory's hall
So that we loved, beautiful and fair.
From life's angers now secure is she
Lovely she was, lovely she shall be.
Heavy are our hearts today,
Memory brings you back once more,
To the time when you were with us.
To the happy days of yore.
'Tis sweet to know we'll meet again
Where troubles are no more
And that the one we loved so well
Has just gone on before.
Many a lonely heartache.
Often a silent tear,
But always a beautiful memory
Of one whom we loved so dear.
In our hearts your memory lingers,
Sweetly tender, fond and true,
There is not a day, dear sister
That we do not think of you.
I have lost my soul's companion.
A life linked with my own.
And day by day I miss her more.
As I walk through life alone.
No morning dawns, no night returns.
But that I think of you,
Those left behind are very dear,
But none replaces you.
We who loved you, sadly miss you,
As it dawns another year,
In our lonely hours of thinking,
Thoughts of you are ever near.
Till memory fades and life departs,
You live forever in our hearts.
We miss her love and cheery ways;
With her we spent our happiest days.
In memory we see her the same;
As long as we live, we'll cherish her name.
Your presence is ever near us,
Your love remains with us yet,
You were the kind of mother,
Your children will never forget.
Always a smile instead of a frown,
Always a hand when one was down;
Always true, faithful and kind,
Wonderful memories she left behind.
What is home without a mother?
All things this world may send,
But when I lost my mother,
I lost my dearest friend.
We know that she is happy
In our Saviour's Home above,
Growing fairer as she lingers
In the sunshine of His love.
My lips cannot tell how I miss her,
y heart cannot tell what to say,
God, alone knows how I miss her,
In a home that is loney today.
As I loved you, so I miss you;
In my memory you are near.
Loved, remembered, longed for always,
Treasured with a love sincere.
You are where I cannot see you,
And your voice I cannot hear;
Yet I know you walk beside me,
Never absent, always near.
Since you've gone first and I remain
To walk the road alone,
I live in memory's garden, dear,
With happy days we've known.
Since you've gone first and I remain,
One thing I'd have you do
Walk slow toward the Great White Throne
Until I come to you.
I want to know each step you take,
That I may walk the same;
For someday on that lovely walk,
You'll hear me call your name.
It's lonesome here without you, dear,
I miss you more each day.
Somehow, life does not seem the same
Since you have gone away.
My heart still aches with sadness,
My eyes shed many a tear;
God only knows I miss you
As this ends another year.
A wonderful mother, woman and aid,
One who was better, God never made;
A wonderful worker, loyal and true,
One in a million, that, Mother, was you.
Just in your judgment, always right,
Honest and liberal, ever upright;
Loved by your friends and all you knew,
A wonderful mother, that, Mother, was you.
Beautiful memories are treasured ever,
of happy days when we were together.
Though her smile is gone forever
And her hand we cannot touch.
Still we have so many memories
Of the one we loved so much.
Your presence we miss,
Your memory we treasure;
Loving you always,
Forgetting you never.
Always smiling, happy and content,
Loved was my sister wherever she went,
To a beautiful life came a sudden end,
She died as she lived, everyone's friend.
Past her suffering, past her pain,
Cease to weep, for tears are vain;
She who suffered is at rest,
Gone to heaven with the blest.
She has not gone from those she loves,
Nor has she wandered far;
Just entered God's most lovely room
And left the door ajar.
Years of striving, little of play,
Loving, giving, the whole of the way;
A cherished smile, a heart of gold,
To the dearest mother a world could hold.
Happy memories, fond and true,
From us who thought the world of you.
Yes, she sleeps, but not forever.
In a lone and silent grave;
Blessed promise, she shall waken,
Jesus died, the lost to save.
In the dawning of the morning,
When the troubled night is o'er.
All the buds in beauty blooming
Will rejoice to see her more.
Years have passed away and gone,
Since the one we loved so well
Was taken from our home on earth,
With Jesus Christ to dwell.
The flowers we place upon her grave
May wither and decay,
But the love of her who sleeps beneath
Shall never fade away.
Our hearts are like a memory book
Its pages Mother dear,
Hold all the loving thoughts of you
Recorded year by year.
A book of golden yesterdays,
Bound with love and care,
A rare edition Mother dear
Because you're treasured there.
God gave us a mother,
And He tried to be fair,
And when He gave us ours
We got more than our share.
Although He took her back
One year ago today,
We are so grateful for
The years He let her stay.
She always leaned to watch for us
Anxious if we were late,
In winter by the window,
In summer at the gate.
And though we mocked her tenderly
Who took such foolish care,
The long road home
Would seem more safe,
Because she waited there.
Her thoughts were all so full of us,
She never would forget,
And so I think that where she is
She must be waiting yet.
Waiting till we come home to her
Anxious if we are late,
Watching from Heaven's Window
Leaning o'er Heaven's Gate.
You ofttimes said I'd miss you,
Those words have proved too true;
I lost my best, my dearest friend,
Dear mother, when I lost you.
Not dear is mother, but sleeping
In her Father's home above,
Rewarded for her suffering,
Rewarded for her love.
A face that is haunting us ever,
A voice we are longing to hear,
A smile we'll remember forever,
While we try to forget every tear.
A sad, but sweet remembrance,
A memory fond and true,
And a token of affection, dear,
And a heartache, mother, for you.
