Grief Poems And Quotes
The following grief poems represent the feelings that we, the ones left behind feel in our hearts:
Appearing at random
At just the right time
I know it is you
Giving me a gift
My son from heaven
My little angel
A piece of your wing
To give me strength
To live my life
– by Lora C Mercado
Never Be the Same
The moment that you left me,
my heart was split in two;
one side was filled with memories;
the other side died with you.
I often lay awake at night,
when the world is fast asleep;
and take a walk down memory lane
with tears upon my check.
Remembering you is easy,
I do it everyday;
but missing you is a heartache
that never goes away.
I hold you tightly within my heart,
and there you will remain;
you see life has gone on without you,
but will never be the same.

Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the star shine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.
-by Mary Elizabeth Frye
Gone, But Not Forgotten
You can shed tears that he is gone.
Or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back.
Or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him.
Or you can be full of 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 home and only that he’s gone.
Or you can cherish his memory and live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what he’d want.
Smile, and open your eyes, love and go on.
Gone, but not forgotten.
