1: "When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight." -Kahlil Gibran

8: You never said "I'm leaving" You never said goodbye You were gone before I knew it, And only God knew why. A million times I needed you, A million times I cried If love alone could have save you, You never would have died.. In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still In my heart you hold a place, That no one could ever fill.. It broke my heart to lose you, But you didn't go alone. For part of me went with you, The day God took you home.
17: Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, I'm following the path God has laid you see. I took his hand when I heard his call. I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way I found the peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joys- A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Oh yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow. I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full I savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief don't lengthen it now with undue grief Lift up your hearts, and peace too thee- god wanted me now, he set me free.
24: If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
33: I'd say goodbye and kiss you And maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized, That this could never be, For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me, From His great golden throne. He said "This is eternity, And all I've promised you. Today for life on earth is past, But here it starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, But today will always last, And since each day's the same day There's no longing for the past. But you have been so faithful, So trusting and so true. Though there were times you did some things, You knew you shouldn't do. But you have been forgiven, And now at last you're free. So won't you take my hand And share my life with me?" So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think we're far apart, For every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart. | When tomorrow starts without me, And I'm not there to see; If the sun should rise and find your eyes All filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn't cry The way you did today, While thinking of the many things, We didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, As much as I love you, And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too; But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name, And took me by the hand, And said my place was ready, In heaven far above, And that I'd have to leave behind All those I dearly love. But as i turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye, For all my life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for, So much yet to do, It seemed almost impossible That I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, The good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared, And all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, Just even for a while, | WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME -Rikin Vasani
41: A brief moment of darkness was all that i knew, before Heaven's Gate came into my view. Loved ones and friends I had missed for many years, welcomed me with open arms and many happy tears All the hurt, fear and pain that I have ever known, is gone from my life, I am finally home. I gazed upon the Lord's sweet smiling face, and for the first time in my life I knew and felt His grace I know that you miss me, but please dry your eyes. I will be watching and loving you from my home in the sky. A cool breeze on your face, a touch of light rain, I will send as a reminder that we will be reunited again. Life on earth is but one brief moment in time, I am finally home, Eternity is mine.

57: The Broken Chain Author: Unknown We little knew that day, God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death, we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you. You did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide. And although we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.

73: Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep I am 1,000 winds that blow I am the diamond glints on snow I am the sun on ripened grain I am the gentle autumn rain When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the sweet uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled light I am the soft star that shine at night Do not stand at my grave and cry I am not there; I did not die -Anonymous

80: God saw you getting tired and a cure was not meant to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered "Come with me." With tearful eyes we watched you, as we saw you pass away. Although we love you deeply, we could not make you stay.Your golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
89: Remember Me To the living, I am gone. To the sorrowful, I will never return; To the angry, I was cheated. But to the happy, I am at peace. To the faithful, I have never left. Talk to me and I will hear, your prayers, they comfort me, your laughter makes me laugh, but don't weep for me as I have my reward, I am with the Father and will never let me perish, The Lord comforts me and longs to comfort you. So be happy my family and don't despair, I am in good hands waiting for that day when The Lord calls you to come home.
96: An Old Irish Blessing May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields . And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
