Funeral Poems

by Steve Pritchard-Jones

A funeral poem is a common part of modern day funerals and celebration of life services. Whether you choose religious or not, they are a lovely way for you to say goodbye to your loved one and add a personal touch to any service.

Many families like to include one or two poems or readings because it helps to provide a beautiful and emotional addition to the service.

You may already know which poem you would like; perhaps the person had a favourite poet or author. But if you have been asked to choose or read a poem at the funeral and you need a little inspiration, there are lots of options to choose from. In this blog I have put together a selection of poems that may inspire you.

  1. All is Well/Death is nothing at all by Oliver Wright

Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by my old familiar name,

Speak to me in the easy way which you always used,
Put no difference in your tone,
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow,
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was,
Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.

It is the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.

All is well.

2. You Were There (Anon)

You were there when we took our first steps,
And went unsteadily across the floor.
You pushed and prodded: encouraged and guided,
Until our steps took us out the door…
You worry now “Are they ok?”
Is there more you could have done?
As we walk the paths of our unknown
You wonder “Where have my children gone?”
Where we are is where you have led us,
With your special love you showed us a way,
To believe in ourselves and the decisions we make.
Taking on the challenge of life day-to-day.
And where we go you can be sure,
In spirit you shall never be alone.
For where you are is what matters most to us,
Because to us that will always be home.

3. Miss Me But Let Me Go by Christina Rossetti

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little, but not for long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that once we shared
Miss me, but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone.
It’s all part of the master plan
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know.
Laugh at all the things we used to do
Miss me, but let me go.

4. Not Stand at My Grave and Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
She is Gone.

5. Day’s Ending by Kathleen Gillium

I look towards the silent hills
At closing of the day,
As vaporous veils of silver mist
Descend upon the Bay.
Through moving clouds, the pearly moon
shines from a distant place,
Reflecting in the waters depths
Her opalescent face
The flowers close their petalled cups,
the wind is just a sigh,
a lonesome bird on homeward flight
lets out a plaintive cry.
Trees stand out in silhouette
against the fading light,
as dusk gives way to evening shadows,
merging into night.
Everything seems hushes and still,
bathed in afterglow.
Then one by one, the stars appear,
and gaze on earth below.
A time to quietly reflect,
to meditate and pray,
as calming peace steals on my soul,
and daylight slips away.

6. You Can Shed Tears by David Harkins

You can shed tears that he is gone
Or you can smile because he has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

7) Farewell My Friends by Rabindranath Tagore

Farewell my friends
It was beautiful
as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.

I have no regrets
Whatsoever save
the pain I’ll leave behind.
Those dear hearts
who love and care…
And the strings pulling
at the heart and soul…

The strong arms
that held me up
When my own strength
let me down.

At every turning of my life
I came across
good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.

Farewell, farewell
my friends
I smile and
bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears
for I need them not
All I need is your smile.

If you feel sad
do think of me
for that’s what I’ll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love,
remember then
you never die.

8. Afterglow by Helen Lowrie Marshall

I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun;
Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.

9. Feel No Guilt in Laughter (Anon)

Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.
He’d hope that you could carry on the way you always do.
So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,
The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour or a day,
That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here,
And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.
For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
And he will live forever locked safely within your heart.

10. God Saw You by David and Kathleen Coelho

God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be.
So He wrapped his arms around you,
and whispered, “Come to me”.
You didn’t deserve what you went through,
So He gave you rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.

11. Thy Will Be Done by Dorothy Frances Gurney

You left quietly without a fuss
You always had a smile to share
A laugh, a joke
A time to care

A wonderful nature
Warm and true
These are the memories
I have of you

A beautiful life
Came to an end
You died as you lived
Everyone’s friend

You gave me year’s of happiness
Then sorrow came with tears
You left me lovely memories
I will treasure through the years.

12.The Dash by Linda Ellis

I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning… to the end.
He noted that first came the date of birth and spoke of the following date with tears,

but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time they spent alive on earth and now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own, the cars… the house… the cash.

What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard; are there things you’d like to change?

For you never know how much time is left that still can be rearranged.

To be less quick to anger and show appreciation more and love the people in our lives like we’ve never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile… remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.

So when your eulogy is being read, with your life’s actions to rehash, would you be proud of the things they say about how you lived your dash?

13. How Did They Live? By John Carpenter

Not, how did they die, but how did they live?
Not, what did they gain, but what did they give?
These are the units to measure the worth
Of a person as a person, regardless of birth.
Not, what was their church, nor what was their creed?
But had they befriended those really in need?
Were they ever ready, with a word of good cheer,
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
Not, what did the sketch in the newspaper say,
But how many were sorry when they passed away?

14. Poem of Life (Anon)

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what’s to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay…

Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey’s quicker,
For some the journey’s slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
We’ll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the lord.

15. Remember me to the living by Margaret Mead

To the living, I am gone,
To the sorrowful, I will never return,
To the angry, I was cheated,
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.

I cannot speak, but I can listen.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore gazing at a beautiful sea,
As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity,
Remember me.

Remember me in your heart:
Your thoughts, and your memories,
Of the times we loved,
The times we cried,
The times we fought,
The times we laughed.

For if you always.

Remember me in your heart:
Your thoughts, and your memories,
Of the times we loved,
The times we cried,
The times we fought,
The times we laughed.

For if you always think of me, I will never have gone.

You’ve Just Walked On Ahead of Me
And I’ve got to understand
You must release the ones you love
And let go of their hand.

I try and cope the best I can
But I’m missing you so much
If I could only see you
And once more feel your touch.

Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me
Don’t worry I’ll be fine
But now and then I swear I feel
Your hand slip into mine.

16. If I Should Go Tomorrow (Anon)

If I should go tomorrow
It would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you,
So don’t you ever cry.

The love that’s deep within me,
Shall reach you from the stars,
You’ll feel it from the heavens,
And it will heal the scars.

17.She Is Gone (He Is Gone) by David Harkins

You can shed tears that she is gone

Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back

Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

 Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her

Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday

Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone

 Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back

Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.  

18. If Tomorrow Starts Without Me by David Romano.

If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see,

If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,

while thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you care for me, and how much I care for you,

and each time that you think of me I know you’ll miss me too;

But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,

that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand,

and said my place was ready in heaven far above,

and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,

for all life, I’d always thought I didn’t want to die.

I had so much to live for and so much yet to do,

it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.

I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for a while,

I’d say goodbye and hug you and maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realised that this could never be,

for emptiness and memories would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things that I’d miss come tomorrow.

I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through Heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home.

When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden throne,

He said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you,

Today your life on earth is past but here it’s starts a new.

I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last,

and since each day’s the same, there’s no longing for the past.

But you have been so faithful, so trusting, so true.

Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do.

And you have been forgiven and now at last you’re free.

So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me?”

So if tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart,

for every time you think of me, please know I’m in your heart.

19.Look for me Rainbows by Cynthia Spencer

Time for me to go now, I won’t say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky.
In the morning sunrise when all the world is new,
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Time for me to leave you, I won’t say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky.
In the evening sunset, when all the world is through,
Just look for me and love me, and I’ll be close to you.

It won’t be forever, the day will come and then
My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again.

Time for us to part now, we won’t say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky.
Every waking moment, and all your whole life through
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Just wish me to be near you,
And I’ll be there with you.

20, BACK IN TIME  (he or she)  by Becky Hemsley

He walked across the field
When he came upon a stile
And he almost turned around
Cos he’d already walked for miles

But then he heard a melody
That made him carry on
It was a faint and distant echo
Of an old familiar song

He walked towards the music
And it led him past a sign
To a row of houses starting
At the number ninety-nine

And from that house the scent
Of childhood dinners filled the air
And he smelt the heady perfume
That his grandma used to wear

The next house on the path
Was somehow thirty-four
And it had a stained-glass window
Of a rose within the door

He peered in through the window
Of the next house down the street
And he saw familiar photographs
Upon the mantelpiece

He heard some children laughing
So he looked over the fence,
Where he saw a young boy playing
In the garden with his friends

They were splashing in a paddling pool
And playing with a ball
They were practicing their cartwheels
And their handstands at the wall

And something like nostalgia
Made him stand there for a while
‘Till he tore himself away and turned
And headed for the stile

And it was then he passed the signpost
With an all-familiar name
And he realised he had just walked down
A street called Memory Lane.

21.Remember Me (Anon)

Don’t remember me with sadness,

Don’t remember me with tears,

Remember all the laughter,

We’ve shared throughout the years.

Now I am contented

That my life it was worthwhile,

Knowing that I passed along the way

I made somebody smile.

When you walking down the street

And you’ve got me on your mind,

I’m walking in your footsteps

Only half a step behind.

So please don’t be unhappy

Just because I’m out of sight,

Remember that I’m with you

Each morning, noon and night.

22. One At Rest (Anon)

Think of me as one at rest,

for me you should not weep

I have no pain no troubled thoughts

for I am just asleep

The living thinking me that was,

is now forever still

And life goes on without me now,

as time forever will.

If your heart is heavy now

because I’ve gone away

Dwell not long upon it friend

For none of us can stay

Those of you who liked me,

I sincerely thank you all

And those of you who loved me,

I thank you most of all.

And in my fleeting lifespan,

as time went rushing by

I found some time to hesitate,

to laugh, to love, to cry

Matters it now if time began

If time will ever cease?

I was here, I used it all,

and now I am at peace.

23. Last Journey by Timothy Coote

There is a train at the station

With a seat reserved just for me

I’m excited about its destination

As I’ve heard it sets you free

The trials and tribulations

The pain and stress we breathe

Don’t exist where I am going

Only happiness I believe

I hope that you will be there

To wish me on my way

It’s not a journey you can join in

It’s not your time today

There’ll be many destinations

Some are happy, some are sad

Each one a brief reminder

 Of the great times that we’ve had

Many friends I know are waiting

Who took an earlier train

To greet and reassure me

That nothing has really changed

We’ll take the time together

To catch up on the past

To build a new beginning

One that will always last

One day you’ll take your journey

On the train just like me

And I promise that I’ll be there

At the station and you will see

That life is just a journey

Enriched by those you meet

No-one can take that from you

It’s always yours to keep

But now as no seat is vacant

You will have to muddle through

Make sure you fulfil your ambitions

As you know I’ll be watching you

And if there’s an occasion

To mention who you knew

Speak kindly of that person

As one day it will be you

Now I can’t except this ending

And as it’s time for me to leave

Please make haste to the reception

To enjoy my drinks, they’re free!

24, Grandad I Look Back in Fondest Every Day

I look back in fondness very day,

At the joyful times we had.

No one else could be so special,

As my wonderful Grandad.

You carried me as a child,

And held onto my hand.

You nurtured and treasured me every day,

And taught me how to stand.

Grandads are like no one else,

And you really were the best,

And even though this sadness aches,

It is time for you to rest.

But I want you to hear me Grandad,

Although you’re out of sight,

I’ll use the lessons that you taught,

Forever, my guiding light.

25. Clearing out all those personal possessions by Christine Howard

Clearing out all those personal possessions,

That doesn’t mean that mom has gone,

Those memories will remain forever even

now her life is done.

The ones where she was mad at you,

The ones where you were sad,

The ones where you hear her voice,

The ones that made you glad.

The grip of her hand will always be,

Through those moments you find it hard.

Her soft silky skin and her warmest smile, we will

never disregard.

All those times she helped you up, so you could

carry on,

The times when it was just you and her, enjoying

hugs with your mom.

Even though the times we deal with, may be hard or


The time we spent with our mom will never be


But always we will carry on, with her memory by

our side, holding on to those dear memories, even though we’ve cried.

We loved our mom in so many ways, she will never

be forgotten, we loved our mom for being her,

and our memories never downtrodden.

26. We Had a Lovely Mother (Anon)

We had a wonderful mother,
One who never really grew old;
Her smile was made of sunshine,
And her heart was solid gold;
Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,
And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful mother,
And that’s the way it will always be.
But take heed, because
She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
So let’s make sure
She will like what she sees.

27. A Poem for Mother (Anon)

Mother, you were just a girl,
So many years ago.
You had your loves and had your dreams,
You watched us come and go.

You watched us make the same mistakes,
That you had made before,
But that just made you hold us tight,
And love us all the more.

We haven’t always thought about
The things that you have seen.
To us you’ve just been ‘Mother’,
No thought of who you’ve been.

But we remember now in love,
Your life from start to end,
And we’re just glad we knew you,
As Mother, and as Friend.

28. Farewell Dear Mother (Anon)

Somewhere in my heart beneath all my grief and pain,
Is a smile I still wear, at the sound of your dear name.
The precious word is ‘MOTHER’, she was my world you see,
But now my heart is breaking cause she’s no longer here with me.

God chose her for His angel to watch me from above,
To guide me and advise me and know that I’m still loved.
The day she had to leave me when her life on earth was through,
God had better plans for her, for this, I surely knew.

When I think of her kind heart and all those loving years,
My memories surround me and I can’t hold back the tears.
She truly was my best friend, someone I could confide in,
She always had a tender touch and a warm and gentle grin.

I want to thank you Mother for teaching me so well,
And though the time has come that I must bid you this farewell.
I’ll remember all you’ve taught me and make you proud you’ll see.

Thank you my Dear Mother for all the love you showed me.
Although you’ve left this earth and now you’ve taken flight,
I know that you are here with me each morning, noon and night.

29. What is a Mom? (Anon)

A mom is one of life’s best gifts,
Someone to treasure all life through,
She’s caring and loving,
Thoughtful and true,
Someone who is always a special part of your life,
Someone who holds a prime place in your heart,
She’s a mentor, a confident and also a friend,
Someone on whose love you can depend.
A mom always has your best interests at heart,
She’s someone so dear and so good,
She’s a blessing, she’s a gift,
She’s a treasure like no other,
She’s someone that is truly wonderful.
Wherever you go, and whatever you do,
A mom’s love will always see you through,
A mom is truly invaluable,
Indispensable and unforgettable.
I wouldn’t want anyone but you,
And that’s why I’m so grateful,
that life picked you for me.

30. Her Journey’s Just Begun (Anon)

Don’t think of her as gone away, her journey’s just begun
Life holds so many facets, this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting from the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days or years.

Think how she must be wishing that we could know today
How nothing but our sadness, can really pass away.
And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much.

              31) A Poem For A Mum With Alzheimers (Dick Underwood):

You didn’t die just recently,
You died some time ago.
Although your body stayed a while,
And didn’t really know.

For you had got Alzheimer’s,
You failed to comprehend.
Your body went on living.
But your mind had reached its end.

So we’ve already said, “Goodbye”,
To the person that we knew.
The person that we truly loved,
The person that was you.

And so we meet again today,
To toast your body’s end.
For it was true and faithful,
Until right at the end.

And so, when we remember,
We’ll think of all the rest.
We’ll concentrate on earlier,
And remember all the best.

For in the real scheme of things,
Your illness wasn’t long.
Compared to all the happiness,
You brought your whole life long.

We think of you as yesterday,
When you were fit and well.
And when we’re asked about you,
It’s those things that we’ll tell.

And so we meet in remembrance,
Of a mind so fit and true.
We’re here to pay our last respects
To say that, “We love you”.

32. A Religious Mum (Anon)

God saw you getting tired,

And a cure was not to be,

So He put His arms around you,

And whispered “Come to Me”.

With tearful eyes we watched you,

and saw you pass away.

Although we loved you dearly,

We could not make you stay.

A Golden Heart stopped beating,

Hard working hands to rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best

33. Mommy Dearest (Anon)

She is my mother,
that indomitable unattainable goal.
A woman of iron and silk and unforgiving praise,
she is the measure of all that I will never be.
She sees me and looks right through me.
She loves me with a barbed wire heart,
chaining me to a relentless yearning of approval.
I will beat my head endlessly against a brick wall
if you simply say you love me;
say you’re proud of me;
say I’m good’
All measure of self-worth is wrapped
in the one woman who loves me enough
to tear me apart.

34. Little Snowdrop (Anon)

The world may never notice
If a Snowdrop doesn’t bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.

But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.

The little one we longed for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.

And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
For every beating of our hearts
Says that we love you.

35. Our child never forgotten by Carolyn Autiello

Our heart was broken
without a warning, no words spoken
you were taken away
someone said you could not stay

Empty and lonely is what we are
we lost a precious shining star
our family torn apart
your world began with a promising start

Life is unfair
this difficult cross we must bear
strength and courage we will find
our special child always in our mind

A place in heaven is where you sit
looking at that star you lit
in our thoughts forever you will be
never knowing why someone set you free

36. Silent Child by Kelly Lancor

My silent child, our precious baby,
Close to my heart I’ll keep you with me.
An important job God has for you,
There is love to give, and work to do.
He needs an angel strong but small,
To shine light on many and give love to all.

Before you go

I give you this,

Half my heart

And one last kiss.

We’ll miss you dearly

That we know,

But by God you were chosen,

So to heaven, you must go.

37. I Feel As Though My Heart Must Stop With Pain by Nicolas Gordon

I feel as though my heart must stop with pain.
I miss you so, the darkness will not pale.
My darling child, come to me again.
I know you cannot come, and still I strain
To put my arms around you through the veil.

Other lives and loves call me in vain.

I try to turn away from you and fail.

My darling child, come to me again.

You are my unendurable refrain.

Back and back I hurry to impale

My heart on you, to stop my heart with pain.

Yet nothing that I do undoes the plain

Brutal fact which always must prevail.

Ah, my darling, come to me again!

You are both my sunshine and my rain,

My dearest joy, my anguish, and my grail.

I feel as though my heart must stop with pain.

My darling child, come to me again.

38. The Broken Chain by Ron Tramner

The little knew that day
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone,
for part of us went with you
the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
and though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
but as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again. 

39. An Angel Never Dies (Anon)

Don’t let them say, I wasn’t born

That something stopped my heart

I felt each tender squeeze you gave

I’ve loved you from the start.

Although my body you can’t hold,

It doesn’t mean I’m gone.

This world was worthy, not, of me

God chose that I move on.

I know the pain that drowns your soul,

What you are forced to face.

You have my word, I’ll fill your arms

Someday we will embrace.

You’ll hear that it was “meant to be,

God doesn’t make mistakes”

But that won’t soften your worst blow…

Or make your heart not ache.

I’m watching over all you do,

another child you’ll bear.

Believe me when I say to you,

That I am always there.

There will come a time, I promise you

When you will hold my hand,

Stroke my face and kiss my lips

And then you’ll understand.

Although, I’ve never breathed your air,

Or gazed into your eyes…

That doesn’t mean I never “was”

An angel never dies.

40. I’ll Be There (Anon)

Daddy, please don’t look so sad,

Mama please don’t cry.

Cause I am in the arms of Jesus

And He sings me lullabies.

Please, try not to question God,

Don’t think He is unkind.

Don’t think He sent me to you,

And then He changed his mind.

You see, I am a special child,

And I’m needed up above.

I’m the special gift you gave Him,

The product of your love.

I’ll always be there with you

And watch the sky at night.

Find the brightest star that’s gleaming,

That’s my halo’s brilliant light.

You’ll see me in the morning frost,

That mists your window pane.

That’s me in the summer showers,

I’ll be dancing in the rain.

When you feel a little breeze,

From a gentle wind that blows.

That’s me I’ll be there,

Planting a kiss on your nose.

When you see a child playing,

And your heart feels a little tug.

That’s me I’ll be there,

Giving your heart a hug.

So daddy, please don’t look so sad,

Mama don’t you cry.

I’m in the arms of Jesus,

And He sings me lullabies

From your little angel.
