<![CDATA[Memorial Poetry]]>Fri, 05 Jul 2013 17:00:35 GMThttp://www.stonemarks.com/stonemarks-blog/memorial-poetryOften families ask us for examples of epitaphs/phrases/poems to put on their loved ones memorial. We found some  ideas online:
Thinking of the thoughtful things
That you have said and done
And loving you a little more
Dear (name), for every one.
...............

Our thoughts are ever with you
Though you have passed away
And those who have loved you dearly
Are thinking of you today.
...............

Just a thought of sweet remembrance
Just a memory, sad and true
Just the love and sweet devotion
Of the one who thinks of you.
...............
 
We who love you, sadly miss you
As it dawns another year
In our lonely hours of thinking
Thoughts of you are ever near.
...............

I know how much you love me
As much as I love you...
And each time that you think of me
I know you'll miss me, too..
...............
 
Treasured thoughts of one so dear
Often bring a silent tear
Thoughts of scenes long past
Years roll on but memories last.
...............

Tenderly we treasure the past
Memories that will always last
When we cease to think of you
Will be when God has called us too.
...............

Think of him/her as living
In the hearts of those he/she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And he/she was loved so much.
...............

No length of time can take away
My thoughts of you today.
...............

Always in our thoughts
Forever in our hearts
...............

Never more than a thought away
...............

Silent thoughts of times together
Hold memories which will last forever.
...............
Although you can't be here with me
We're  truly not apart
Until the final breath I take
You'll be living in my heart.
...............

Deep in the heart lies a picture
Of a loved one laid to rest
In Memories frame we keep it
Because she was one of the best.
...............

Sadly missed along life's way
Quietly remembered every day
No longer in our life to share
But in our hearts he's always there.
..............

Loving memories of one so dear
Treasured still with a love sincere
In our hearts she is living yet
We loved her too dearly to forget.
................

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.
...............

Even though you are not with us
Your presence is still strong
Because in your heart we'll always find
The love for which we long.
............... 

There's always a place for U in my heart
That way we'll never really be apart.
...............

Your beauty is missed in every way
"Forever in our hearts"
...............   

I keep in my heart the love of the past
For there it was planted forever to last.
...............

In the hearts of those who loved you
You will always be there.
..............
  
Always in our thoughts
Forever in our hearts.
............... 

Dearer still as the years depart
He lives forever in my heart.
..............

Sincere and true in heart and mind
A memory sweet you left behind.
...............

Deep in my heart you will always stay
Loved and remembered every day.
...............
