Words of comfort – A Collection of Poetry and Prose suitable for Funerals and similar events

Author – The Late Jenny Walton


When I fell down,
For all the times you tied my shoes
And tucked me into bed,
Or needed something
But put me first instead.

For everything we shared,
The dreams, the laughter,
And the tears,
I love you with a Special Love
That deepens every year.

Thank You Mum


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 never
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.

There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.

‘Say not in grief ‘he is no more’, but live in thankfulness that he was’
Hebrew proverb

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. 

(On an Irish tombstone)

Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.

(Eskimo proverb)
