The poem, Funeral Blues, by WH Auden, was used to such great
effect in the film "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and is one that is
It starts with the words "Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone"
and finishes on a decidedly sad and thought provoking note:-
"Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
For nothing now can ever come to any good."
An Eternal Memory
...Until We Meet Again
Those special memories of you
will always bring a smile
if only I could have you back
for just a little while
Then we could sit and talk again
just like we used to do
you always meant so very much
and always will do too.
The fact that you're no longer here
will always cause me pain
but you're forever in my heart
until we meet again.
by Rupert Brooke
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust conceal'd;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air.
Wash'd by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.
You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried
If Love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died
In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

I feel your pain
and long to touch the hurt
and make it melt away.
