Do Not Stand At My Grave
by Mary Frye
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 sun 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.

Man, when he does not grieve, hardly exists. Antonio Porchia

Miss Me But Let Me Go
by Author Unknown
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 that 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 at heart, Go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds,
Miss me, but let me go.

Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower, We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind. William Wordsworth

The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God. Eileen Elias Freeman

Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others, or the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received. Albert Einstein

He Only Takes The Best
By Author Unknown
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you and whispered “come to me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

For thou hast given me in this beauteous face A world of earthly blessings to my soul, If sympathy of love unite our thoughts. William Shakespeare

Even hundredfold grief is divisible by love. Jareb Teague

Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality. Emily Dickinson

Irish Poem
When we lose someone we love it seems that time stands still.
What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness,
A longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch,
We may not understand why you left this earth so soon,
or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye,
but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died,
but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
We will see you again some day, in a heavenly place
where there is no parting.
A place where there are no words that mean good-bye.

You don’t get over it, you just get through it. Your don’t get by it, because you can’t get around it. It doesn’t ‘get better’; it just gets different. Everyday, grief puts on a new face. Wendy Feireisen
