Her Journey’s Just Begun

    Don’t think of her as gone away –
    her journey’s just begun,
    life holds so many facets –
    this earth is only one.
    Just think of her as resting
    from the sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years.
    Think how she must be wishing
    that we could know today
    How nothing but our sadness
    can really pass away.
    And think of her as living
    in the hearts of those she touched…
    for nothing loved is ever lost –
    and she was loved so much.

    Miss Me But Let Me Go

      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?
      Miss me a little, but not too long,
      And not with your head bowed low.
      Remember the love that we once shared,
      Miss me but let me go.
      For this is a journey we all must take,
      And each must go alone,
      It’s all a part of the Master’s plan,
      A step on the road to home.
      When you are lonely and sick of heart,
      Go to the friends we know,
      And bury your sorrow in doing
      good deeds,
      Miss me but let me go.

      Road To Eternity

        Life is but a stopping place,
        a pause in what’s to be,
        a resting place along the
        road to sweet eternity.
        We all have different journeys,
        different paths along the way,
        we all were meant to learn some
        things, but never meant to stay.
        Our destination is a place
        far greater than we know,
        for some, the journey’s quicker,
        for some the journey’s slow.
        And when the journey finally ends,
        we’ll claim a great reward,
        and find an everlasting peace,
        together with the Lord.

        Life is But a Stopping Place

          Life is but a stopping place,
          a pause in what’s to be,
          a resting place along the
          road to sweet eternity.
          We all have different journeys,
          different paths along the way,
          we all were meant to learn some
          things, but never meant to stay.
          Our destination is a place
          far greater than we know,
          for some, the journey’s quicker,
          for some the journey’s slow.
          And when the journey finally ends,
          we’ll claim a great reward,
          and find an everlasting peace,
          together with the Lord.

          Indian Prayer

            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 glint on snow.
            I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
            I am the gentle autumn rain.
            When you wake in morning hush,
            I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circling flight.
            I am the soft starlight at night.
            Do not stand at my grave and cry,
            I am not there.
            I did not die.

            Memories Live Forever

              A bouquet of beautiful memories,
              sprayed with a million tears,
              wishing God could have spared you,
              if just for a few more years.
              It does not take a special day,
              for us to think of you,
              each Mass we hear,
              each prayer we say,
              is offered up for you.
              We cannot bring the old days back,
              when we were all together,
              our family chain is broken now,
              but memories live forever.

              After Glow

                I’d Like The Memory Of Me
                To Be A Happy One.
                I’d Like To Leave An After
                Glow Of Smiles When
                Life Is Done.
                I’d Like To Leave An Echo
                Whispering Softly
                Down The Ways.
                Of Happy Times And
                Laughing Times And
                Bright And Sunny Days.
                I’d Like The Tears Of Those
                Who Grieve, To Dry
                Before The Sun.
                Of Happy Memories That I
                Leave When Life Is Done.

                Just a Memory Away

                  I’m no longer by your side,
                  but there’s no need to weep;
                  I’ve left sweet recollections,
                  I’m hoping you would keep.
                  Eternal joy and memories stay in our hearts forever,
                  Strengthening our special bond that parting cannot sever.
                  Now it’s time to journey on,
                  so let your faith be strong,
                  For I am in a better place…
                  I’m home where I belong.
                  And if times of loneliness bring sorrow and dismay,
                  Don’t despair,
                  for I am there…
                  just a memory away.
