thank you Carol, those are lovely words and very true.

My friend Lizzie is in my thoughts a lot at the mo, it was two years ago I found out she was in a hospice and didn't have long to live, we had sort of lost touch and she hadn't let many people know about her illness.
She died just a couple of days after her 59th birthday altho I don't think she was really aware of her cards being read out to her and such because of the pain relief she was getting, she was nursed at her family's home for her last days.

Thinking of all our loved ones gone ahead, and those who are grieving and sad.

Remember Me

It’s been a while since I left you
and I know you bear a heavy heart.
For years we were the best of friends
and in your eyes, we’re now apart.

Though it may be true my idle feet
no longer tread the grounds of earth,
it is you who can truly justify
what the steps they took are worth.

Realize now that I am only gone
if you choose for me to be…
if you hesitate to speak my name
or recall each memory.

If you reject the image of my face
because it brings you pain,
then my life, my love, my laughter
will all have been in vain.

I know you miss my presence
from the steady tears upon your face,
but these tears you cry are not for me,
for I am in a better place.

I am no longer suffering.
I feel no pain, nor have I sorrow.
I’ve gone forward to this beautiful place
to spend today and every tomorrow.

So laugh at our jokes, remember our time
and freely speak my name.
If you’ll relive our years together,
then it won’t be an end that came.

Embrace the things we’ve shared;
revisit places we have been.
Keep me alive within your heart
and I will never die again.

Yes, it’s true that it won’t be the same
and the same...it will never be,
but I will always be by your side
if you will always remember me.

Adding this verse from the thread for Shirley Allen, with permission from the poster, Caza.

Together the road we’ve travelled
Holding my hand, you’ve led
I stand in the valley of shadows
Because you have gone ahead.

We met at the foot of life’s mountain
Young then, with courage we went
And all the path glowed then with sunlight
And stumbling blocks seemed heaven sent.

Hand in hand then we travelled together
Through sunshine, or vale of despair
And nothing could daunt us, or harm us
As each other knew the other was there.

Sometimes we would pause in the valley
Or happily tread on life’s way
And each night we’d rest with the sure hope
Tomorrow, a new climbing day.

And then, we grew older and slower
But still journeyed on, hand in hand
Looking back, life was greyer and dimmer
Than the glow of the bright promised land.

And now you have gone on without me
Just a few steps alone you’ve trod
But I’m coming, and know you’ll be waiting
As we walk on together – to God.

nudging these up as some people have lost loved ones recently and these verses might help a little.

Chrissie, I am glad you found it, there have been a lot of people losing loved ones recently so I thought it might help someone, but no one seemed to notice I had nudged it. I am not sure how you found it but glad you did and glad it has given you the opportunity to read the lovely verses and words on here.
If you have a special verse of your own that isn't already here, do add it please.

This is such a beautiful thread. I'm so pleased it had been nudged as I had not read it before.

I have copied the verses as they are so beautiful and comforting.
