Funeral Poems for a Child

Think of Me

When you’re feeling sad or a little blue,

Look around and you’ll see I’m here with you

I’m the bird who soars so high above

I’m the one who filled your heart with love

The Way I Feel

They say there is a reason,

They say that time will heal,

But neither time nor reason,

Will change the way I feel,

No-one knows the heartache,

That lies behind my smile,

No-one knows how many times,

I have broken down and cried,

I want to tell you something,

So there won’t be any doubt,

You’re so wonderful to think of,

But so hard to be without.

A Butterfly Lights Beside Us

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam, and for a

brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world:

but then it flies again. And though we wish it could

have stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it.


Your fingerprints are on my heart.

Fingerprints that teach me about caring.

Fingerprints that teach me about love.

Fingerprints that teach me about courage.

Fingerprints that teach me about hope.

Fingerprints that bring me closer to my loved ones.

Fingerprints that bring me closer to myself.

In the time I cared for you my whole life changed —

never to be the same again

All this from tiny fingerprints that touch my heart.

You will live in my heart forever – never to be forgotten.

I will always love you.

You are my child.

Please Don’t Ever Tell Me

I’m going to tell you something

I hope you’ll never have to know.

I’ll tell you how a heart can break

And tears can constant flow.

I lost my baby girl you see,

An angel in my eyes

God chose to take her hand one day

And led her to the skies.

But please do not forget my child

She was a person too

And forever she will live

Inside of me and you.

So, please don’t ever tell me

That time will heal my pain

Because not even time

Can bring her back again.

Just tell me she is happy

In that land way up above

She’s snuggled in an angels wings

All wrapped in Mommy’s love.
