Traditional Verses (Short)

TS01

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.

TS02

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

TS03

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.

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.

TS06

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

TS08

Mother’s there expecting me

Father’s waiting too

Lots of folk gathered there

All the friends I knew …

TS09

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.

But rejoicing comes in the memory

Love crosses every horizon and 

entwines our hearts for an eternity.

TS13

We hold you close within our hearts

and there you shall remain

To walk with us throughout our lives

until we meet again.

We have loved him in life,

Let us not forget him in death.

TS15

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

TS16

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

TS18

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.

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.

TS24

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?

TS25

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.

TS26

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

TS27

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

TS28

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one’s gone.

TS29

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.

TS31

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

TS32

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.

TS33

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.
