Traditional Verses
- Short -


As each day dawns, we think of you,
As each night falls, we pray for you.
And throughout our lives, no matter where;
In our hearts you are always there.


There Is No Night Without A Dawning,
No winter without a spring,
And beyond the dark horizon,
Our hearts will once more sing.
For those who leave us for a while,
Have only gone away,
Out of a restless, care worn world,
Into a brighter day.


Your life was love and labour,
Your love for your family true,
You did your best for all of us,
We will always remember you.


We lost a mother with a heart of gold:
How much we miss her can never be told.
In our thoughts forever


Weep not for me my beloved ones,
My soul is overwhelmed with joy,
I am watching over you from on High.


There’s always a reason for living.
Though sad your heart may be.
There’s always another horizon
Beyond the one you see.


No matter how life changes,
No matter what we do,
A special place within our hearts,
Is always kept for you.


Mother’s there expecting me,
Father’s waiting too.
Lots of folk gathered there,
All the friends I knew.


We hold you close within our hearts
And there you shall remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.


Peace is the serenity of the soul,
the tranquillity of the mind
And the simplicity of the heart.


Weeping may remain for a night;
But rejoicing comes in the memory.


Love crosses every horizon and entwines our hearts for an eternity.


We have loved him in life,
Let us not forget him in death.


As you danced in the light with joy, love lifted you. As you brushed against this world so gently, you lifted us.


A gift for such a little while,
Your loss just seems so wrong,
You should not have left before us,
It’s with loved ones you belong.


Our father kept a garden,
A garden of the heart.
He planted all good things,
That gave our lives a start.


Her thoughts were all so full of us,
She never could forget,
And so I think that where she is,
She must be watching yet.


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.


We have only a memory, dear mother.
We cherish our whole life through;
But the sweetness will live forever
As we treasure the memory of you.


Gone yet not forgotten,
Although we are apart,
Your spirit lives within me,
Forever in my heart.


Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.


Memory drifts to scenes long past,
Time rolls on, but memories last;
Sunshine passes, shadows fall,
Love’s remembrance outlasts all.


When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?


Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.


If I should go tomorrow,
It would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you,
So don’t you ever cry.


The years may wipe out many things,
But this they’ll wipe out never,
The memory of those happy days,
Which we have spent together


Those we love remain with us,
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never,
Fade because a loved one’s gone.


A light went out on Earth for me,
The day we said goodbye,
And on that day a star was born,
The brightest in the sky


Right now I’m in a different place,
And though we seem apart,
I’m closer than I ever was,
I’m there inside your heart.


As we loved you, so we miss you;
In our memory you are near.
Loved, remembered, longed for always,
Bringing many a silent tear.


I’m with you when the times are good,
To share a laugh or two,
And if a tear should start to fall,
I’ll still be there for you.


So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It is only for a while that we must part,
So treasure the memories within your heart.
