Farewell...

Go down

Farewell... Empty Farewell...

Post  jinettyx on Mon Feb 06 2012, 15:24

Farewell….

Today we said farewell
To a lovely, special lady
The church was full to brimming
With her beloved family

The sun outside was shining
Down upon the icy snow
This was her final resting place
With her husbands plot below

As they lay there, both together
Re-united now in death
The family gathered round her
Say goodbye, with tears they shed

Together for all eternity
In Gods home, the Holy land
No longer old and crippled
As they come together, hand in hand.

Death is not an ending
Of a life, it’s just the start
Of a new exciting venture
That lives beyond a broken heart.

Goodbye dear lady





The dearest little lady
She just turned a hundred and two
Sitting in a nursing home
With nothing left to do

This hard working lady
In service most her life
Being such a busy mother
And a truly devoted wife

A pitiful existence
Helpless in a chair
Calling out for her son
Not knowing if he was there

To see so many people
In the church taking part
But it was the sight of children
That really broke my heart

Now she is at rest
No longer in any pain
Husband and wife together
Reunited once again

Beautifully crafted elegy. I was reminded of my own Grandmother's passing some years ago. Thank you for sharing. Mike
