Stop all the clock,cut off the telephone,prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,silence the pianos and with muffled drum,bring out the coffin,let the mourners come.let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead,scribbling on the sky the message he is dead.put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,let the traffic policemen wear white cotton gloves.he was my north,my south,my east,my west,my working week and my sunday rest,my noon,my midnight,my talk my song,i thought that love would last forever;i was wrong.the stars are not wanted now;put out everyone;pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;for nothing now can ever come to any good..Remember me when i am gone away,gone to they away into the silent land,when you can no more hold me by the hand,nor i half turn to go,yet turning stay.remember me when no more day by day you tell me of the future that you planned;only remember me;you understand,it would be late to counsel then or pray.yet if you should forget me for a while and afterwards,remember do not grieve,for it the darkness and corruption leave a vestige of the thoughts that once i had,better by far you should forget and smile,than that you should remember and be sad.
Death Is Nothing At All
Death is nothing at all,i have only slipped away into the next room.i am i and you are you.whatever we were to each other,that we are still.call me by my old familiar name,speak to me the easy way which you always used.
When Someone You Love Dies
When someone you love dies,you never quite get over it.you just slowly learn how to go on without them.but always keeping them tucked safely in your heart.
You are finally free,back in the sea,from sunrise to sunset that’s where you’ll be,when the children frolick on the shores,you will be able to tickle their toes!you will hear their laughter and feel the love,for it will be your that we are thinking of…
Grandpa Doesn’t Like To Talk
Grandpa doesn’t like to talk about his days back in the war.so i don’t ask about his medals.i don’t ask about his limp.i don’t ask.instead i watch.grandpa folds the flag each night.grandpa bends his head in prayer.grandpa doesn’t like to talk.sometime i sit and watch him stare.
Nan Without Your Our Lives
Nan without your our lives,would be a sorry place,we’d miss the kindness in your face.we’d never have the love you share,nor know just how much you care,so grandmother we’d like you to know,that we need you and love you and want it show.
The Closer Is God
The darker the night,the brighter the stars,the deeper the grief,the closer is God.
You Are Near
You are near,even if i don’t see you.you are with me,even if you are far away.you are in my heart,in my thoughts,in my life,always.
You Don’t Get Over It
You don’t get over it,you just get through it.you don’t get by it,because you can’t get around it.it doesn’t get better;it just gets difference.everyday…grief puts,on a new face.
She Is Gone
You can shed tears that she gone,or you can smile because she has lived,you can close your eyes and pray that she will come back,or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left,your heart can be empty because you can see her,or you can be full of the love that you shared,you can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.you can remember her and only that she is gone,or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

I’ll Catch Your Smile
I’ll catch your smile on someone’s face,your whisper in the wind’s embrace through diamond stars and song and dreams,i find your love in everything,The sun,the sky,the rolling sea,all conspire to comfort me,from sorrow’s edge life’s beauty seems,to find your love in everything,I’ve come to trust the hope it brings,to find your love in everything,even as i fall apart,even through my shattered heart,I’ll catch your smile,on someone’s face.
Happy The Man
Happy the man,and happy he alone,he who can call today his own:he who,secure within,can say,tomorrow do thy worst,for i have lived today.be fair or foul.or rain or shine,the joys i have possessed,in spite of fate are mine.not heaven itself,upon the past has power,but what has been,has been,and i have had my hour.
Tears Of Sorrow
Our tears of sorrow,fill an empty baby place incomprehension,now you follow your own path away yet close to our hearts.
I Could Not

In Loving Memory
God saw you were getting tired,and a cure was not to be,so he puts his arms around you,and whispered,”come to me”,with tearful eyes we watched you,and saw you pass away,although we loved you dearly,we could not make you stay.a golden heart stopped beating,hard working hands at rest.God broke our hearts to prove to us,he only takes the best.
I Was So Sorry

Remembering Those We’ve Lost
Somewhere in time’s own space,there must be some sweet pastured place,where creeks sing on and tall trees grow,some paradise where horses go,for by the love that guides my pen,i know great horses live again.
My heart is full of memories,with pride i speak your name,though life goes on without you,it will never be the same.
Until We Meet Again
Those special memories of you will always bring a smile,if only i could have you back,for just a little while,then we could sit and talk again,just like we used to do,you always meant so very much,and always will do too,the fact that you’re no longer here,will always cause my pain,but you’re forever in my heart,until we meet again.
A Heart Of Gold
A heart of gold stopped beating,two shiny eyes at rest,God broke our hearts to prove to us,he only takes the best,God knows you had to leave us,but you didn’t go away alone,for part of us went with you,the day He took you home.to some you’ll be forgotten,and to others just a part of the past,but to us who loved and lost you,your memories will always last.
God made a wonderful mother,a mother who never grows old;he made her smile of the sunshine.and he moulded her heart of pure gold;in her eyes he placed bright shining stars,in her cheeks fair roses you see;God made a wonderful mother,and he gave that dear mother to me.
We’ll always remember that special smile,that caring heart,that warm embrace,you always gave us.you being there for mom and us through good and bad times,no matter what.we’ll always remember you dad because they will never be another one to replace you in our hearts,and the love we will always have for you.
We’ve done a lot of things that we’ll never regret;the good ones or the bad ones,moments i’ll never forget,it’s hard for me to cheer up,because i am feeling blue;by accepting the fact that,my life’s never the same without you.you’ve been here with me,through my ups and my downs;you’ll be willing to walk on by the outskirts of all town.just to help me get through,my problems all along.now that you are already gone,i guess i have to be strong.
Because You Were Here
I choose to be thankful,not to be sad,for all of the wonderful years that we had,you gave me a smile,that no one can steal,you gave me a purpose,in life that was real.you gave me a blessing,like no other could,when i was confused,you understood,you gave me much more than i could ever reply,God put peace in my heart,when he called you away,though i stand by your grave,i’ll not shed a tear,i’ll always be thankful,because you were here.
At My Grave
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.i am the sunlight on ripened grain.i am the gentle autumn rain.when you awaken in the morning’s hush,i am the swift uplifting rush,of quiet birds in circled flight.i am the soft stars that shine at night.do not stand at my grave and cry;i am not there i did not die.
The man that enlivens my soul when i’m feeling down;has already left me,it feels like i will drown.i will miss the love that you made me feel,it’s true;i don’t know can i move on,and live my life without you.i hope you’ll still be there to fight my losing battle;and you’ll help me to fight with the current of the river while we paddle.but you are now in heaven,i have to stand and not to bother;and have to face the music that you are gone my dearest father.
Farewell To The Lady
If the woman that lights the home up flickered and burnt out;we will be all lost in the dark and fall without a doubt.we will willow in the mud and we will struggle to crawl;troubles will seem to be giants,even if they are small.farewell to the lady who had been there through thick and thin;wipe all the dirt upon stumbling,until we’re shiny,bright and clean.who smiles at all the laughter we made when we succeed;God,take care of her,to you we hardly plead.
