Death Poems

Online Memorials provides you a wide selection of free death poems and eulogy poetry.
You may wish to use readings or poetry during a funeral service, at a memorial service, as part of a eulogy speech or as part of an In Loving Memory tribute. Even using a short poem on the card that you send with the flowers for the funeral can help you to find the right words.

Grieve Not For Me

I cannot let you grieve for me,
For those who love must let us go.
In comfort, please believe I’m free,
From all the pain life can bestow,
As I begin my world anew,
Consider not what used to be,
I’m sending happy smiles to youWhile I enjoy eternity.
Lord, bless the home
From which I came,
Yet brush each lonely hour away,
With fond remembrance of my name,
And a sunshine for a newer day.
Look to the wind to find me there,
Beside the hardest thing you do.
I’ve left my love within this prayer
I’m always watching over you.

I Did Not Die

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.

I Have a Place in Heaven

I have a place in heaven
Please don't sing sad songs for me,
Forget your grief and fears,
For I am in a perfect place
Away from pain and tears.
It's far away from hunger
And hurt and want and pride,
I have a place in Heaven
With the Master at my side.
My life on earth was very good,
As earthly life can go,
But Paradise is so much more
Than anyone can know.
My heart is filled with happiness
And sweet rejoicing, too.
To walk with God is perfect peace,
A joy forever new.

If Flowers Grow In Heaven

If flowers grow in heaven Lord,
then pick a bunch for me then
place them in my mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek and
hold her for awhile

Gone But Not Forgotten

We sat beside your bedside,
Our hearts were crushed
and sore;
We did our best to the end,
'Til we could do no more.
In tears we watched
you sinking,
We watched you fade away;
And though our hearts
were breaking,
We knew you could not stay.
You left behind some
aching hearts,
That loved you most sincere;
We never shall and never will
Forget you Mother dear.

Blowing Kisses To Heaven

Blowing Kisses to Heaven
That's what I can do
Every time I want to say
Grandma... I Love You
Blowing Kisses to Heaven
I know that you love me
I am so blessed and so thankful
That God gave this precious Grandma to me
Everyone that met her
Claimed her as their own
Gentle, so caring, so giving, so kind
And we were privileged to have her with us
For such a very long time
Now she is receiving
Blessings so deserved
And every time I think of her
I'll blow kisses to Heaven
From my heart to her

One Mother

You can only have one mother
Patient kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.
When other friends forsake you,
To mother you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.
As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus, take this message,
To our dear mother up above;
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love.

Letting Go

The Angels gathered near your bed,
so very close to you.
For they knew the pain and suffering
that you were going through.
I thought about so many things,
as I held tightly to your hand.
Oh, how I wished that you were
strong and happy once again.
But your eyes were looking homeward, ?
to that place beyond the sky.
Where Jesus held His outstretched arms, ?
it was time to say goodbye.
I struggled with my selfish thoughts,
for I wanted you to stay.
So we could walk and talk again,
like we did - just yesterday.
But Jesus knew the answer,
and I knew He loved you so.
So I gave to you life’s greatest gift,
the gift of letting go.
