For A Time
 
Others are brought into our lives,
For A Time,
Some, for many years, others,
for moments sublime.
From each, there are lessons to be learned,
and to be shared,
For A Time, with them, God,
lovingly arranged, we be paired.
We need remember, this lifetime,
is temporary and fleeting,
Others leave and enter our lives,
with a good bye and a meeting.
Pathways converging and crossing,
provide life’s valued amounts,
Destinations are uncertain,
so it’s, indeed, the journey that counts.
We are blessed so by others,
gratefully brought to us,
For A Time,

As we have been brought to them,
to make their lives better, 
…if but only, For A Time…

Waiting at Heaven's Door

Death beckoned her with outstretched hand
And whispered softly of an unknown land,
But she was not afraid to go
For though the path she did not know
She took death's hand without a fear
For God who safely brought her here
Had promised He would lead the way
Into eternity's bright day.

For none of us need go alone
Into the valley that is unknown,
But, guided by our Father's hand
We journey to the promised land.

She was your special loving Mother
You shared your lives with one another,
And you'll find comfort for your grief
In knowing her death brought sweet relief.
For, now she is free from all suffering and pain
And your great loss became her gain...

You know that her love is with you still
For she loved you in life and always will.
Love like hers can never end
Because it is the perfect blend
Of joy and sorrows, smiles and tears,
That just grew stronger with the years.
Love like hers can never die
For she's taken it with her to the sky...

So think of Mum as living above
No farther away than your undying love,
For now she is happy and free once more
And she's waiting for you at Heaven's door.

So Go and Run Free

So go and run free with the angels
Dance around the golden clouds
For the lord has chosen you to be with him
And we should feel nothing but proud
Although he has taken you from us
And our pain a lifetime will last
Your memory will never escape us
But make us glad for the time we did have
Your face will always be hidden
Deep inside our hearts
Each precious moment you gave us
Shall never, ever depart
So go and run free with the angels
As they sing so tenderly
And please be sure to tell them
To take good care of you for me

Miss Me but Let Me Go
 
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little – but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me – but let me go.

For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Master's plan,
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss Me – But Let me Go!

She is Gone
 
You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she’s gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she’d want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

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 has won.
His journey has now ended,
His spirit has ascended
Claiming the great reward
With Jesus, our Lord.

Don't Weep For Me
 
Don’t weep for me
For I’ve made it home
Through Heavens gates
There I may roam.

Wipe your tears
And dry your eyes
I’m in a better place
With Heaven as my prize.

Don’t weep for me
No tears and no sorrow
Live life for Jesus
He promises tomorrow.

Love Lives On
 
Those we love remain 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,
they’ll live on in the heart.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that day, 
God was going to call your name. 
In life we loved you dearly, 
In death, we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone. 
For part of us went with you, 
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories, 
Your love is still our guide. 
And although we cannot see you, 
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, 
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

When The Sun Comes
Up Tomorrow

When the sun comes up tomorrow
and I'm not next to you
Remember I am in a place
where life begins anew.
I wish you would not cry for me
the way you do today
While thinking of the many things
you never got to say.
When the sun comes up tomorrow
don't think we're far apart
For every time you think of me
 am right there in your heart.

In Peace Go Home

Through veils of peace may you ascend 
To promised planes above 
Where comfort shall await you 
In those summerlands of love

Although my grief is deep and raw 
Although my pain is great 
I know that you are still with me 
I know that you will wait

For in God's time we'll meet again 
Of this I am quite sure 
I loved you so much on this earth 
In absence even more

I Am Free!

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,
I’m following paths God made for me
I took his hand, I heard him call
Then turned, and bid farewell to all
 
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to sing, to play
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found my peace … at close of play
 
And if my parting left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
 
Be not burdened… deep with sorrow
I wish you sunshine of tomorrow
My life’s been full I’ve savored much
Good friends, good times
A loved one’s touch.
 
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with grief
Lift up your heart and share with me,
The joy of love and life – for now I’m free.

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.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would not
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb.
So 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.

My Loved One So Cherished
 
So many unfinished words I wished to say
Some words I almost heard but you gently slipped away.
Even some gifts I had to give and things I’d love to hear
Your voice was like music to my ears
Your presence sweet to my heart.
Oh how I love you dear one of mine,
I’m happy you still live….
The hope of seeing you one day, I cherish in my heart
And then for eternity, new memories we can start.
We will romp in the meadows,
We will skip and sing like the birds
In the Land of our Redeemer
Where the River of Life flows.

Loved One Ultimately Healed

Keep close to your Risen Lord
That’s how you’ll feel close to me
Let your hearts be in one accord
And a blessing you will see
We’re never far too distant
We have oneness in the Spirit
When you’re still it takes an instant
Sometimes you can feel it
Some tears are good for cleansing
Aches and pains away
There is a time for mending
But also for brighter days
Let not grief capture your heart
I’m not so far away
Jesus gave me a brand new start
And He will give to you one day
A Land where there’s always bliss
Every blessing can afford
This you will not want to miss
Let your heart be in one accord.

I'm There Inside Your Heart
 
Right now we’re in a different place
And though we seem apart
I’m closer than I ever was
I’m there within your heart
 
I’m with you when you greet each day
And when the sun shines bright
I’m with you when the sun sets too
I’m with you every night
 
I’m with you when the times are good
To share a laugh or two
And if a tear should start to fall
I’ll still be there for you
 
And when that day arrives
That we will no longer be apart
I’ll smile and hold you close to me
Forever in my heart.
