Funeral Poems For Nan

A Grandmother and Mum   

You were simply everything,
Grandmother, daughter, mum,
Instrumental in our lives,
In what we have become.

It’s difficult to see the void,
Where once you will have stood,
But the gift of love that you gave us,
Filled our hearts with only good.

A Tribute to my Grandmother   

A tribute to my grandmother,
I need only say just this,
The greatest that has ever lived,
Who we’ll forever miss.

We will never fill the space you’ve left,
But then we’ll never try,
For you are irreplaceable,
In our hearts we know just why.

You gave so much and worked so hard,
So others could achieve,
“There was goodness inside everyone”,
that was something you did believe.

Nanny   

Such wonderful memories of Nanny
The Nanny we all used to know
We kept you too long and there waiting
The angels have said you can go
Bright golden gates that are shining
Full of family to bid you hello
So blow us a kiss as you’re leaving
Our sadness we’ll try not to show
Such wonderful memories of Nanny
We all have our favourites you see
As you enter those gates you’ll be thinking
They’re all there thinking of me!

All Is Well Death Is Nothing At All   

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped 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 in the easy way which you always used
Put no difference in your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me

Weep Not For Me Poem   

Weep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul’s sweet flight
I am at peace, my soul’s at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life

God Saw You Getting Tired poem   

God saw you getting tired,When a cure was not to be.So He wrapped his arms around you,and whispered, “Come to me”.

You didn’t deserve what you went through,So He gave you rest.God’s garden must be beautiful,He only takes the best.

And when I saw you sleeping,So peaceful and free from painI could not wish you backTo suffer that again

Miss Me But Let Me Go Poem   

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 for long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that once we shared
Miss me, but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone.
It’s all part of the master plan
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know.
Laugh at all the things we used to do
Miss me, but let me go.

You Can Shed Tears That She is Gone Poem   

You can shed tears that she is 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’t 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

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

When I Have Fears Poem   

When I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has glean’d my teeming brain,
Before high piled books, in charact’ry,
Hold like rich garners the full-ripen’d grain;
When I behold, upon the night’s starr’d face,
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
And think that I may never live to trace
Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance;
And when I feel, fair creature of an hour!
That I shall never look upon thee more,
Never have relish in the faery power
Of unreflecting love!—then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think
Till Love and Fame to nothingness do sink.

Warm Summer Sun Poem   

Warm summer sun, shine kindly here;
Warm southern wind, blow softly here;
Green sod above, lie light, lie light;
Good night, dear heart, good night, good night.
