Not how did he die, but how did he live? Not what did he gain, but what did he give? These are the units to measure the worth Of a man as a man, regardless of birth. Not, what was his church, nor what was his creed? But had he befriended those really in need? Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer, To bring back a smile, to banish a tear? Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say, But how many were sorry when he passed away. Our father kept a garden A garden of the heart He planted all good things That gave our lives a start.

There will be a singing in your heart, There will be a rapture in your eyes; You will be a woman set apart, You will be so wonderful and wise. You will sleep, and when from dreams you start, As of one that wakes in Paradise, There will be a singing in your heart, There will be a rapture in your eyes. There will be a moaning in your heart There will be an anguish in your eyes; You will see your dearest ones depart, You will hear their quivering good-byes.
The thrush greeting the morning; the little bluebirds in their hot box; the salty talk of the wren, then the deep cup of the hour of silence. A poem or short verse can help express these emotions and takes the pressure off finding your own words yourself. The dust we tread Shall change, beneath the summer showers To golden grain, or mellowed fruit, Or rainbow-tinted flowers. I'd like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun; Of happy memories that I leave when life is done. A Clear Midnight — Walt Whitman This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless, Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done, Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou lovest best, Night, sleep, death and the stars.
Yours will be the heart-ache and the smart, Tears that scald and lonely sacrifice; There will be a moaning in your heart, There will be an anguish in your eyes. Who nourished me with fondest care, And bore me forth to take the air, And plucked me fruits and flowers rare, My Mother.
The life that I have is all that I have the life that I have is yours The love that I have for the life that I have is yours and yours and yours. A sleep I shall have, a rest I shall have Yet death will be but a pause for the peace of my years in the long green grass Will be yours and yours and yours. 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. Just like losing your mother the loss of a dad is a terribly difficult time.
We hope these poems can help make the readings at the funeral that extra special. A giant pine, magnificent and old Stood staunch against the sky and all around Shed beauty, grace and power.
Within its fold birds safely reared their young. The velvet ground beneath was gentle, and the cooling shade gave cheer to passers by. It fell one day. Where it had dauntless stood was loneliness and void. And so it lives.
Such life no bonds can hold — This giant pine, magnificent and old. We little knew that morning that 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 peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God call us us one by one, the chain will link again.
He never made a fortune, or a noise In the world where men are seeking after fame; But he had a healthy brood of girls and boys Who loved the very ground on which he trod. He gave them neither eminence nor wealth, But he gave them blood untainted with a vice, And opulence of undiluted health.
He was honest, and unpurchable and kind; He was clean in heart, and body, and in mind. So he made them heirs to riches without price — This father. He never preached or scolded; and the rod — Well, he used it as a turning pole in play. But he showed the tender sympathy of God. To his children in their troubles, and their joys. As we look back over time We find ourselves wondering …..
Did we remember to thank you enough For all you have done for us? For all the times you were by our sides To help and support us ….. To celebrate our successes To understand our problems And accept our defeats? Or for teaching us by your example, The value of hard work, good judgment, Courage and integrity? We wonder if we ever thanked you For the sacrifices you made. To let us have the very best? And for the simple things Like laughter, smiles and times we shared? And we are hoping you knew all along, How much you meant to us.
