3. Title: “Broken Chain, Eternal Love”

That morning, so unassuming,
God whispered your name, unseen.
In life, we cherished your being,
In death, our love’s serene.

Our hearts shattered, the day you left,
Yet not alone did you go away.
A part of us to heaven was cleft,
When God called you home that day.

Beautiful memories left in your wake,
Your love, our compass, our stead.
Though unseen, you’re near, for goodness’ sake,
Always by our side, in each path we tread.

The family chain seems fractured now,
Life’s altered, never quite the same.
As God calls us, row by row,
The chain shall mend, link by link, in His name.

Since you’ve been gone from view,
I cherish each day anew.
I count them as a blessing, true,
For life’s uncertain, as I now construe.

Through the trials that I go through,
I’ve learned to hold fast to what’s true.
Even in the darkest night’s debut,
Staying resolute will help me pull through.

When pain’s torment feels like a coup,
I gather strength, remain steadfast, too.
Keeping my heart and mind in lieu,
To find solace, in memories I’ll review.

Most of all, it’s painfully true,
Life’s fleeting, our time together flew.
Only Heaven knows when we’ll adieu,
And say “Goodbye,” forever, or just for a few.

In our hearts, your memory stays.

Tears have flowed like rain,
Yet now, you’re free from pain.

Still, we remember and cherish you.

But my belief, it cannot break.
After all this time, I confess,
I’m still lost without your presence.

You left in silence, under Heaven’s eyes.
My heart aches with enduring sorrow,
Secret tears flow today and tomorrow.

Losing you, none truly know.
But you’d wish us to remember, I see,
The joy we shared, and how life should be.

In memories cherished, you’ll forever reside,
A sacred place in my heart, you won’t hide.
In the mystery of why we part,
We trust one day, we’ll reunite in the heart.

Life’s tumult surrounds, your memory stays.
You could have left, chosen to depart,
But your loyalty remained, you kept my heart.

13. Title: “A Tribute to Beauty”

A little butterfly, today it flew near me,
I wondered, where have you been, little free spirit?
From a cocoon, alone you emerged, and then,
Blossomed into a beauty to explore life’s domain.

Little butterfly, in your gentle way, you sail,
Unaware of the wonder your presence unveils,
You fluttered, a farewell perhaps, in the breeze,
Heading to the horizon with such ease.

A contented, happy sight, as you soared away,
Whispering, “Don’t worry, I’ll be okay,”
Yet, I was touched, a sadness deep within me,
Knowing life’s beauty, you imprinted indelibly.

Each butterfly, each horizon’s splendid view,
Brings back the memory of a moment with you,
In that fleeting time, our souls did confer,
A testament to the beauty you helped me uncover.

Now the time has come to set you free,
Though you’re never truly gone, you’re a part of me.
As we lay you to rest in your final embrace,
I’ll cherish your smile, your beautiful grace.

It’s not a farewell, my tears need not flow,
For you’ve found a place where your spirit can glow.
Though I’ll miss you dearly, in my heart, you’ll stay,
Forever my best friend, in my thoughts, every day.

With each new sunrise and each setting sun,
Your memory lives on, two hearts still as one.
Through laughter and tears, in every gentle breeze,
You remain my best friend, my heart at ease.
