It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
Save the pain I’ll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care…;
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul…;
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell, my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
For that’s what I’ll like when you live in the hearts.
- Hope In God
One of the popular life encouraging poem taken from the book by Psalms, the first book of the Ketuvim.
As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
while men say to me all day long,
“Where is your God?
“Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so distured within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Saviour and my God.
By day Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me “;
a prayer to the God of my life.
Of those you love, remember then
You never die.
- His journey’s just begun
Best funeral poems for veterans, patrons written by Ellen Brenneman.
Don’t think of him as gone away
his journey’s just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched…;
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.
- If I should die
One of the best popular poem for soldiers, written by Thomas Gray (1716 – 1771), famous poet and classical scholar.
If I should die and leave you
Be not like the others, quick undone
Who keep long vigils by the silent
dust and weep.For my sake turn to life and smile
Nerving thy heart and trembling
hand to comfort weaker souls than thee.
Complete these unfinished tasks of mine
And I perchance may therein comfort thee.
- Peace My Heart
Peace My Heart is one of the best poem ever written by Bharat Ratna winner Rabindra Nath Tagore(1861 -1941 ), Bengali Poet and Philosopher.
Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.
Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence.
I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light your way.
