I found some nice memorial poems on http://mikikouros.wordpress.com/2013/07/10/in-loving-memory-poems/
If Flowers Grow In Heaven
If flowers grow in heaven Lord,
then pick a bunch for me then
place them in my mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek and
hold her for awhile
Gone But Not Forgotten
We sat beside your bedside,
Our hearts were crushed
We did our best to the end,
‘Til we could do no more.
In tears we watched
We watched you fade away;
And though our hearts
We knew you could not stay.
You left behind some
That loved you most sincere;
We never shall and never will
Forget you Mother dear.
A Fallen Limb
A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we’re together again
I Have a Place in Heaven
I have a place in heaven
Please don’t sing sad songs for me,
Forget your grief and fears,
For I am in a perfect place
Away from pain and tears.
It’s far away from hunger
And hurt and want and pride,
I have a place in Heaven
With the Master at my side.
My life on earth was very good,
As earthly life can go,
But Paradise is so much more
Than anyone can know.
My heart is filled with happiness
And sweet rejoicing, too.
To walk with God is perfect peace,
A joy forever new.
