Short Poems

1. “Eternal Rest”
Beneath this stone, serene and still,
Lies one who’s left this earthly hill.
No more shall pain or sorrow come,
With angels now this soul is one.

Here lies the one we hold so dear,
Whose memory still brings us tears.
Though parted for a time so brief,
We know our love will bring relief.

3. “Forever Young”
In youth they lived and loved so well,
With laughter, joy, and tales to tell.
And though they now have passed away,
Their spirit here with us will stay.

We gather here with grateful hearts,
To honor one who played their part.
We’ll miss them dearly, this we know,
But in our hearts they’ll always glow.

Medium Poems

Gone But Not Forgotten
In loving memory,
We lay you to rest,
But your spirit lives on,
Forever blessed.

Though you’re no longer here,
Your memory won’t depart,
In our hearts you’ll remain,
A cherished piece of our heart.

So we bid you farewell,
And say goodbye for now,
But know that in our thoughts,
You’ll always have a place somehow.

Eternal Love
Underneath this stone,
Rests a love that’s pure and true,
Inseparable hearts,
Forever beating just for you.

Our love was unbreakable,
A bond that would never die,
And though you’re gone,
You’re still the apple of my eye.

So as I stand here now,
With tears upon my face,
Know that I’ll always cherish,
Our love, our time, our space.

Always Remembered
As we come to lay you down,
In this final resting place,
We know that though you may be gone,
Your memory can’t be erased.

You touched so many lives,
With your kindness and your grace,
And though you’re no longer with us,
You’ve left an everlasting trace.

So here we say goodbye,
With heavy hearts and tears to shed,
But know that in our thoughts and souls,
You’ll always be remembered.

Long Poems

Eternity’s Embrace

Deep within this earthy ground,
Lies a soul that once was found,
A life that touched so many hearts,
Now departed, but never truly departs.

Memories cherished, forever held dear,
Though the physical form is no longer here,
The essence of their spirit lingers on,
In the hearts and minds of those they’ve gone.

This headstone, a marker of their memory,
A monument to their life’s journey,
Their legacy etched in stone,
A lasting tribute to a love that’s grown.

Underneath this solemn earth,
Lies a soul of infinite worth,
Whose life’s work will forever be,
A legacy of love, for all to see.

The tears may fall, the heart may ache,
But the love they brought will never break,
For in our fondest memories, we’ll find,
Their spirit lives on, forever entwined.

In eternity’s embrace, they rest,
With peace and love, forever blessed,
And though their body may be gone,
Their spirit lingers on and on.

So rest in peace, dear one, rest well,
For in our hearts, you’ll never quell,
We’ll treasure your memory, hold it near,
And love you always, year after year.

May this headstone be a symbol of your life and love,
A reminder of the blessings sent from above,
May it stand the test of time,
And preserve your legacy, divine.

For in the end, it’s not about the years we’ve spent,
But about the love we’ve given, and the hearts we’ve bent,
May your headstone stand tall, for all to see,
The life and love that you’ve set free.
