 God's Garden

God looked around his garden and found an empty place
He then looked down upon the Earth and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest
With the help of his angels they flew you to your heavenly place

Gods garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best
He knew you were suffering, he knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never get well on Earth again

He saw the road was getting rough and the hills
too hard to climb
He closed your weary eyelids and whispered "Peace be Thine"
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you the day God called you home


Bereavement Poems

The White Chariot

During your journey on your final flight home.
White wings will carry you and you will be flown.
To the pearly gates of Heaven, where they will usher you in.
To the feet of your Lord, your Saviour, and your friend.
He will hold you in his arms and the angels will sing.
As another one of His children is delivered by white wings.


A Child's Grief

Lord you care so much
For the tears of a hurting child
Who has felt the grief of tragedy
Now no longer wears a smile

Unable to clearly express
How much he’s hurting inside
Not fully understanding the pain
Nor knowing the reasons why

He wants so much to reach out
To someone who will listen
Someone that can hold him close
And respond with godly wisdom

For he just needs a grown up
To know what he’s going through
But often we don’t realize his grief
Because we are hurting too

Let him know you care Lord
And will be there when we’re not
The emptiness he feels within
May be filled with you oh God

May he know you as a father
And know you’re by his side
To come and wipe his tears away
When alone he silently cries

Hold him in your arms Lord
So he will be at peace
Allow us all to give him time
In dealing with his grief

For tears may last all night
But joy comes in the morning
So let him grieve throughout the night
For a new day will be dawning.
M.S. Lowndes


Bereavement Poems

He kept at true good humour’s mark,
the social flow of pleasure’s tide:
He never made a brow look dark,
Nor caused a tear, but when he died
Thomas Love Peacock


Just as the soft rains fill the streams
pour into the rivers and join together in the oceans
so may the power of every moment of your goodness
flow forth to awaken and heal all beings
Those here now, those gone before, those yet to come
By the power of every moment of your goodness
May your heart's wishes be soon fulfilled
as completely shining as the bright full moon
as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem
By the power of every moment of your goodness
May all dangers be averted and all disease be gone
May no obstacle come across your way
May you enjoy fulfillment and long life
For all in whose heart dwells respect
who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way
May your life prosper in the four blessingsbr>of old age, beauty, happiness and strength
Buddhist Blessing


Those who are worn out and crushed by this mourning,
let your hearts consider this:
this is the path that has existed from the time
of creation and will exist forever.
Many have drunk from it and many will yet drink.
As was the first meal, so shall be the last.
May the master of comfort comfort you.
Blessed are those who comforts the mourners.
Jewish Blessing of the Mourners


Bereavement Poems


Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it okay.
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day.
I need some distraction, oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins.
Let me be empty and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight.
In the arms of the angels, fly away from here.
From this dark cold hotel room, and the endlessness
that you fear.
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie.
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here.
Sarah McLachlan
