We think about you always,

we talk about you still,

you have never been forgotten,

and you never will.

We hold you close within our hearts,

and there you will remain,

to walk with us throughout our lives

until we meet again.

My Special Aunt

I close my eyes as I wipe a tear.

I just keep wishing you were still here.

I will hold all the memories deep in my heart.

Through these memories we'll never part.

I close my eyes as I wipe a tear.

I just keep wishing this pain would disappear.

I didn't get the chance to say my last goodbye.

I just didn't think you could ever die.

I close my eyes as I wipe a tear.

All of your love I will always hold near.

In my heart and my mind I will never be alone.

When my time comes......

I will meet you in heaven!

Dedicated To My Aunt

Life is too short.

It's not enough,

but we must understand

that if we live it in love and faith,

a road will be made

for the day we pass away.

We can take it

and wait at the end.

for those who once and always loved us,

we will meet.

Your beautiful eyes,

so big and round,

showed love,

showed laughter,

showed happiness,

showed sadness,

but we will remember you as the happy, 

beautiful woman you were,

the one who once cried for love,

the one who once laughed.

I love you, my dear.

We will miss you,

but please wait.

We will meet once again

in the kingdom of Heaven

where no pain we will feel.

My Everything

When you feel like you've lost everything

because you lost the one who was your everything,

think about all the good things,

the fun you had ,

the time they turned rain into sunshine,

or what about the time they turned your tears into a smile.

And smile again because of the love you have for that someone,

And keep smiling because that someone would have wanted to see you smiling and happy all the time.

I Thought Of You With Love Today

I thought of you with love today

but that is nothing new

I thought about you yesterday

and days before that too,

I think of you in silence

I often speak your name

All I have are memories

and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake

with which I’ll never part

God has you in His keeping

I have you in my heart.

We Had a Wonderful Aunt

We had a wonderful aunt,

One who never really grew old;

Her smile was made of sunshine,

And her heart was solid gold;

Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,

And in her cheeks fair roses you see.

We had a wonderful aunt,

And that’s the way it will always be.

But take heed, because

She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,

So let’s make sure

She will like what she sees.

My Uncle Missed


When I saw you smiling and talking it was yesterday

When you were taken it was today

But in my heart you will always stay

Your voice, your wisdom, your speech and your right so free

Not knowing all that you could have been

Taken away like a tide ashore

Now you in that heavenly place

On the wings of the heavenly dove soaring so high above

It has been one year since your life came to its early departure

When the time comes we all have to endure

So rest in peace till we meet

In eternity you will safely be.

He is Gone - Live On

You can shed tears

that he is gone.

Or you can smile because he lived.

You can close your eyes and

pray that he will come back.

Or you can open your eyes and

see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty because

you can’t see him.

Or you can be full of the love

that you shared,

You can turn your back on

tomorrow and live for yesterday,

Or you can be happy for tomorrow

because of yesterday.

You can remember him and

only that he is gone.

Or you can cherish his

memory and let it live on,

You can cry, close your mind,

be empty, and turn your back.

Or you can do what he would

have wanted, smile, open your

eyes, love and move on.

Not How Did He Die

 But How Did He Live?

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 paper say,

But how many were sorry when he passed away.

My Uncle


My uncle was a man who had smiles to brighten your days,

who always made you feel good with his warm words of praise.

And what’s more he knew

what to do to make wishes come true.

He was my uncle.

My uncle was someone who always had good stories to tell,

but just as importantly he knew how to be a good listener as well.

He was patient and kind

and the very best friend you could ever hope to find.

He was no ordinary man.

And I’m proud to tell the world that 

He was my Uncle.

You’ve Just Walked On 

Ahead Of Me

And I’ve got to understand

You must release the ones you love

And let go of their hand.

I try and cope the best I can

But I’m missing you so much

If I could only see you

And once more feel your touch.

Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me

Don’t worry I’ll be fine

But now and then I'm sure I feel

Your hand slip into mine.

If We Could Bring You Back Again

If we could bring you back again,

For one more hour or day,

We’d express all our unspoken love;

We’d have countless things to say.

If we could bring you back again,

We’d say we treasured you,

And that your presence in our lives

Meant more than we ever knew.

If we could bring you back again,

To tell you what we should,

You’d know how much we miss you now,

And if we could, we would.

Life: A Stepping Stone

Life is just a stepping-stone

A pause before we make it home

A simple place to rest and be,

Until we reach eternity.

Everyone has a life journey,

A path to take with lots to see

God guides our steps along the way,

But we were never meant to stay.

Our final destination is a place

Filled with love, His majesty and grace.

Today we celebrate the life of a loved one

Who has gone before us, the race he/she has won.

His journey has now ended,

His spirit has ascended

Claiming the great reward

With Jesus, our Lord.

Love Lives On


The cousin we love remains with us

for love itself lives on,

and cherished memories never fade

because a loved one’s gone.

Those we love can never

be more than a thought apart,

far as long as there is memory,

he/she will live on in our hearts.
