1. Title: “The Divine Cycle of Giving and Taking”

God grants chances to love, though not eternally,
Yet, in time, these chances fade, as we can see.
Do not linger in despair, don’t hesitate, nor delay,
For God gives and takes, so we humbly say.

Blessed be the name of the Almighty’s grace,
Even when opportunities vanish, we embrace.
Why bless the Lord when blessings seem to fray?
Without these shifts, life would slowly slip away.

In God’s giving and taking, we find our claim,
In this ebb and flow, we honor the sacred name.
For with each chance given, a new path to tread,
In God’s cycle, we find wisdom to be spread.

So cherish each moment, both gift and adieu,
In life’s ever-turning, both old and anew.
For God’s plan is wiser than we can foresee,
In giving and taking, His purpose shall be.

2. Title: “Whispers Beyond the Veil”

Death is but a threshold, nothing more,
I’ve merely slipped into the next room’s door.
I am myself, and you remain as you were,
Our connection endures, no less, no more.

Call me by the name you always knew,
Speak to me in that easy, familiar way.
No somber tones or forced sorrow, it’s true,
In laughter, we’ll cherish our shared yesterdays.

Let my name be common, a household word,
Spoken without a shadow, a trace unseen.
Life maintains its essence, haven’t you heard?
Unbroken, enduring, as if it’s ever been.

Why forget me because I’m out of sight?
I’m waiting near, just ’round the corner’s bend.
All is well, in the soft glow of this light,
Our love, unending, will carry us to the end.

Beneath the moon’s soft, silver-spun spell,
A whispered truth, in quiet moments, I tell,
All is well, where our hopes and dreams dwell,
In the gentle embrace of time, we excel.

Amid life’s tempestuous rise and fall,
We find the strength to stand tall,
All is well, with love to mend the soul,
In unity, we find our common call.

Across the tapestry of moments we weave,
In stories of the heart, we forever believe,
All is well, as bonds of love cleave,
Together, in unity, we faithfully receive.

So, when shadows cast their transient veil,
Remember the solace, let your spirit swell,
All is well, in love’s enduring trail,
A truth we carry, and forever shall tell.

Though he, the kind and steadfast true,
Moved on ahead, a brief adieu,
Yet, doubt not, soon the seasons through,
Your friend, once more, will come to view.

Not lost to death’s dark, endless night,
He walks ahead, just out of sight,
On the same path, with all his might,
Together, soon, your spirits will unite.

He’s not in death’s cold, binding hold,
But a few steps ahead, as stories told,
Nearing life’s end, with courage bold,
Your reunion awaits, the story to unfold.

Press on, strong heart, with hope aglow,
He lingers near, with steps that slow,
Waiting to welcome, as you go,
Meeting once more, where friendships grow.

5. Title: “Memories of Love”

You can shed tears that she is gone,
Or smile because she lived on and on.
You can close your eyes, wish she’d return,
Or in her legacy, your heart may yearn.

Your heart can ache with her absence near,
Or fill with the love that you both held dear.
You can dwell in the shadows of yesterday,
Or embrace tomorrow, as a brand new day.

Remember her not just as one who is gone,
But for the joy she brought, day and night.
You can cry, turn away, in sorrow remain,
Or honor her wishes, let love’s light reign.

In the echoes of her laughter and her song,
Find solace, and carry her memory along.
Let not her absence shroud the life you live,
Embrace her love, the strength she used to give.

7. Title: “Embracing Life and Death”

We don’t desire death before life’s embrace,
When death arrives, a hungry bear in grace.
It takes our bright coins in its purse’s haul,
Snaps it shut, a solemn, inevitable call.

Like measle-pox or ice between the blades,
We contemplate the door, as curiosity pervades.
The cottage of darkness, what’s it going to be?
Embracing the unknown with a heart set free.

In this existence, we’re all a brotherhood and kin,
Time, a fleeting concept, where we begin.
Eternity’s possibility, an endless reverie,
Each life, a unique bloom, a vibrant decree.

When it’s over, let’s not wonder or fear,
But say we were married to amazement here.
We were the bride and bridegroom, as one,
Holding the world in our embrace, it’s done.

8. Title: “Remembering Virtue”

Here rests an honest soul, serene and blessed,
Friend to man, guardian of truth’s bequest,
A beacon for the young, a solace for the old,
In his warm heart, virtues did manifold.

Rare hearts with kindness brightly beamed,
Few minds with wisdom beamed.
In another world, perhaps he finds his bliss,
Or in its absence, embraced life’s caress.

His memory, a legacy, forever to persist,
A life well-lived, in the hearts that he kissed.
For in the realm of kindness, he found his place,
A friend, a guide, a beacon, and a grace.

In humble repose, his spirit now at rest,
With faith in life’s goodness, he passed the test.
If another world awaits, he’ll surely find his way,
But if not, he’s made the most of every day.

9. Title: “Journey Beyond the Veil”

When my time comes, and I’m called to rest,
In that coffin, life’s journey truly blessed.
Don’t grieve, don’t shed sorrow’s heavy tear,
I’m not lost, just transitioning, never to disappear.

As my body’s carried, don’t mourn in despair,
I’m not departing; love’s eternal, a truth so rare.
In the grave, don’t bid farewell or sigh,
It’s a curtain to realms beyond the earthly sky.

The grave’s but a momentary, transient screen,
Veiling the paradise, where the soul is serene.
You’ll see me descend, but there’s no need to dread,
Watch me rise, like the sun from night’s quiet bed.

The end isn’t when the sun begins to set,
Or when the moon’s glow starts to fade, and yet,
It’s a new dawn, a rebirth’s tender embrace,
When the grave seals you in, the soul finds its place.

10. Title: “Embracing Faith and Hope”

Understanding God’s ways, a challenge to grasp,
Why He takes those we love, in the end, we clasp.
Do they hold purpose in Heaven above,
Treasured dearly, in His boundless love?

God’s plan is a riddle, shrouded in mist,
In His eternal design, where answers persist.
We can’t fathom His purpose, it remains unseen,
But we hold on to faith, where our hearts convene.

In the tapestry of life, His design may unwind,
Yet in our hearts, faith and hope we find.
Earth may veil what Heaven intends.
We trust in His grace, that we’ll reunite in the end.

As we mourn those departed, our spirits weigh,
But we glimpse a promise in the light of day.
God’s wisdom leads through shadows and tears,
Bringing solace in future years.

11. Title: The Carriage of Eternity”

Death kindly stopped, a gentle call,
His carriage held but us, the thrall,
With Immortality, we set our pace,
In serene civility, life’s final embrace.

We moved slowly, no rush or haste,
Leaving behind labor and leisure’s taste,
We passed the school, where children played,
Through fields of grain, where shadows swayed.

But Death passed us, in solemn stride,
The dew drew near, a quivering ride,
Gossamer gown and tippet of tulle,
We journeyed on, in twilight’s lull.

We paused before a house, not grand,
A swelling of the ground, a silent land,
The roof concealed, the cornice low,
In this moment, we knew where to go.

12. Title: “In My Mother’s Memory”

In heaven’s garden, where memories stay,
With each passing moment, I’ll find my way.
The ache in my heart, though it may never part,
I hold her love close, it’s the balm for my heart.

Amidst the stars, where she now resides,
In God’s loving grace, forever she abides.
Her spirit’s a beacon, a guiding light,
In the quiet of night, and the morning’s first sight.

Her laughter still echoes in my cherished dreams,
In the gentle whispers of life’s flowing streams.
A mother’s love, an eternal embrace,
A source of comfort, in this boundless space.

Though she’s beyond the reach of mortal hand,
Her love and warmth forever will stand.
In the roses of heaven, I find my reprieve,
In each cherished memory, she’ll never leave.

13. Title: “Unyielding Grief”

I awaken each morn to a fresh day’s start,
But the pain of losing you lingers in my heart.
I go through the motions, as hours pass by,
Thoughts of you returning, no matter how I try.

I yearn to hear your voice, in the silence, I find,
Yet reality reminds me you’ve left me behind.
Though I wish to say, “Mama, I love you still,”
I’m left with the void, an unfillable chill.

The day you departed, I couldn’t foresee,
That you were headed where I couldn’t be.
Your memories I cherish, they’re forever near,
The ache in my heart, it’s your presence I revere.

Who will listen when my tears start to flow?
Saying, “Mama, goodbye,” it’s a pain I know.
Someday, I hope, all wounds will mend,
Reuniting us in a love that will never end.

A limb has fallen from our family tree,
Hear a voice that whispers, ‘Grieve not for me.
Recall the laughter, the songs, the joyous throng,
The vibrant life I lived, when I was strong.

Carry on my legacy, for I trust in you,
Keep smiling, and the sun will shine anew.
My mind is at ease, my soul finds its rest,
Remember the blessings, I was so truly blessed.

Continue our traditions, no matter how small,
Press forward in life, don’t fear the fall.
I miss you dearly, so please wear a grin,
Until the day we reunite, hearts filled within.

In the tapestry of life, a thread now unwinds,
But the love we shared forever binds.
As seasons change and new chapters begin,
Know I’m watching over you, from within.

Let me enter where you weep, dear friend,
And hold your hand ’til the tears descend.
I’ve known a sorrow much like your own,
Understanding, in your pain I’ve grown.

Beside you in your time of fear.
No need to halt your weeping’s sound,
Tears can heal, let them flow unbound.

Let me enter, whisper a heartfelt prayer,
And hold your hand with tender care.
I’ve felt a sorrow akin to your plight,
In your grief, my understanding takes flight.

With understanding hearts, together we’ll stroll,
For in these tears that from our eyes descend,
Healing begins, our broken souls on the mend.
