    • V01: The Rose Beyond The Wall


      A rose once grew,
      where all could see,
      sheltered beside a garden wall,
      and, as the days passed
      swiftly by,
      it spread its branches,
      straight and tall….

      One day, a beam of light
      shone through a crevice
      that had opened wide –
      The rose bent gently
      toward its warmth
      then passed beyond
      to the other side….

      Now, you who deeply
      feel its loss,
      be comforted –
      the rose blooms there –
      its beauty even greater now,
      nurtured by God’s
      own loving care.

    • V02: Softly In The Morning


      Softly in the morning,
      You heard a gentle call,
      You took the hand God offered you,
      And quietly left us all.

      The day you left us mother,
      Our hearts just broke in two,
      The smallest part is still with us,
      And the biggest part with you.

      For the rest of our lives
      we will miss you mother,
      Our secret tears still flow,
      Oh, how we really loved you,
      No one will ever know.

      We miss your smile,
      your joking ways,
      We miss the things, you used to say,
      And when old times we do recall
      It’s then we miss you most of all.

      You were always there
      when we needed you
      No task too great or small,
      With loving heart and willing hands,
      For us you did it all.

      Look around Your garden Lord,
      And when she turns and smiles,
      Put Your arms around her,
      And hold her for a while.

    • V03: Togetherness


      Death is nothing at all – I have only slipped away into the next room. 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. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effort. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is absolutely unbroken continuity.
      Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near just around the corner. All is well. Nothing is past; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before-only better, infinitely happier and forever-we will all be one together with Christ.

      Most glorious Martin De Porres whose burning charity embraced not only thy needy
      brethren, but also the very animals of the field, splendid example of charity, we hail thee
      and invoke thee! From that high throne which thou dost occupy, deign to listen to the
      supplications of thy needy brethren that, by imitating thy virtues, we may live contented in
      that state in which God has placed us and carrying with strength and courage our cross,
      we may follow in the footsteps of Our Blessed Redeemer and His most afflicted Mother, that
      at last we may reach the Kingdom of Heaven through the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

    • V06: His/Her Journey’s Just Begun


      Don’t think of him as gone away –
      his journey’s just begun,
      life holds so many facets –
      this earth is only one.
      Just think of him as resting
      from the sorrows and the tears
      in a place of warmth and comfort
      where there are no days or years.
      Think how we must be wishing
      that we could know today
      how nothing but our sadness
      can really pass away.
      And think of him as living
      in the hearts of those he touched…
      for nothing loved is ever lost –
      and he was loved so much.

      For every hurt,
      For every plight,
      For every lonely

      For our good,

      One fervent Hail Mary with
      love and thought said,
      Is better than volumes of
      prayers poorly read.
      If time and one’s duties
      prevent a long prayer,
      Just say one Hail Mary with
      fervour and care.
      The “Golden Hail Mary” which
      from the heart springs,
      The greatest of blessings
      from Mary it brings.
      And we never will know ‘til
      before Mary’s throne,
      How that daily Hail Mary
      brought us to her home.

      What he suffered he told but a few,
      He did not deserve what he went through,
      Tired and weary he made no fuss,
      But tried so hard to stay with us.

      Our lips cannot speak how we loved him,
      Our hearts cannot tell what we say,
      But God only knows how we miss him,
      In our home that is lonely today.

      Pray for us O dearest father,
      To Jesus Christ, Our King,
      That He may bless our lonely home
      Where thou once dwelt therein,

      And pray that God may give us strength,
      To bear our heavy cross;
      For no one knows but only He,
      The treasure we have lost.

      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.

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

      No, play on my baby,

      At night when all is silent,

      come running to my side.

      His little hands caress me,
      so tenderly and sweet,
      I’ll breathe a prayer
      and close my eyes,
      and embrace him in my sleep.

      I’m walking in your footsteps
      Only half a step behind.

      And when you feel
      that gentle breeze
      Or the wind upon your face
      That’s me giving you
      A great big hug
      Or just a soft embrace.

      And when it’s time for you to go
      From that body to be free
      Remember you’re not going
      You are coming here to me.

    • V26: When I Leave


      I am about to leave; my last breath does not say “goodbye” for my love for you is truly timeless. I leave myself not to the undertaker and the grave, but to your memory with love. I leave my thoughts, my laughter, my dreams to you whom I have treasured. I give you what no thief can steal, the memories of our times together; the tender, love-filled moments, the successes we have shared, the hard times that brought us closer together and the roads we have walked side by side. I also leave you a solemn promise that after I am home in the bosom of God, I will still be present in the communion of Saints, whenever and wherever you are in need, call me; I will come to you, with my arms full of wisdom and light to open up your blocked paths, to untangle your knots and to be your avenue to God. And all I take with me as I leave is your love and the millions of memories of all that we have shared. So fear not nor grieve at my departure, you whom I have loved so much, for my roots and yours are forever intertwined.

    • V27: Remember


      Remember me when I am gone away,
      Gone far away into the silent land;
      When you can no more hold me by the hand,
      Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
      Remember me when no more day by day
      You tell me of our future that you plann’d:
      Only remember me; you understand
      It will be late to counsel then or pray.
      Yet if you should forget me for a while
      And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
      For if the darkness and corruption leave
      A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
      Better by far you should forget and smile
      Than that you should remember and be sad.

      You mustn’t tie yourself to me in tears,
      Be happy that we had so many years.
      I gave to you my love, you can only guess,
      How much you gave to me in happiness,
      I thank you for the love you each have shown,
      But now it’s time I travelled on alone.

      It’s only for a while that we must part,
      So bless the memories within your heart.
      I won’t be far away, for life goes on,
      So if you need me, call and I will come.
      Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near;
      And if you listen with your heart you’ll hear
      All of my love around you, soft and clear.

      Did you wonder I so calmly,
      Trod the valley of the shade,
      Oh, but Jesus’ love illumined
      Every dark and fearful glade.

      In that way so hard to tread.

      Could I have one doubt or dread.

      For I love you dearly still.
      Try to look beyond Earth’s shadows,
      Pray to trust Our Father’s will.

      There is work still waiting for you,
      So you must not idly stand;
      Do it now while life remaineth.
      You shall rest in Jesus’ land.

      When the work is all completed,
      He will gently call you Home.

      Oh, the joy to see you come.

    • V36: Footprints


      One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.

      When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

      This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it.

      “LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, You’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed You most You would leave me”.

      The LORD replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you”.

      We seem to give her back to you, O God who first gave her to us. Yet, as you did not lose her in the giving, so we do not lose her in the return to You. O Lover of men, You do not give as the world gives. What You give You do not take away, for what is Yours is ours also, if we are Yours. And life is eternal and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon, and an horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
      Lift us up, strong Son of God, that we may see further; cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly. Draw us closer to You that we may know ourselves to be nearer to our loved ones who are with You. And while You prepare a place for us, prepare us also for that happy place, that where You are we may be also forever. Amen.

      When the world is too confusing,

      And draw upon the warmth and love,
      That lives when we’re apart.

      And with these fond reflections
      On the times when you were near,

      It’s like to have you here.

      I am standing on the seashore.
      Suddenly a ship at my side
      spreads her white sails to
      the morning breeze,
      and starts out for the blue ocean.
      She is an object of
      beauty and strength,
      And I stand and watch her
      until at length she is only
      a ribbon of white cloud
      just above where the sea and sky
      mingle with each other.
      Then someone at my side says:
      “There! She’s gone!”

      Gone where?
      From my sight-that is all.
      She is just as large in
      mast and hull and spar
      as she was when she left my side,
      and just as able to bear
      her load of living
      freight to the place of destination.
      Her diminished size
      is in me, not in her,
      and just at the moment when
      someone at my side says:
      “There, she’s gone!”
      there are other voices ready
      to take the glad shout,
      “there! She comes!”

      Nothing seems the same,
      But as God calls us one by one
      The links shall join again.

    • V60: There is a home that lies…


      There is a home that lies beyond
      And past it’s golden door,
      Awaits the one who’s now away,
      Not lost-just gone before,
      And in that home that lies beyond,
      The Master will prepare
      A place for you, and when He calls
      You’ll meet your loved one there.

      They say there is a reason,
      They say that time will heal,
      But neither time or reason,
      Will change the way we feel.
      No one knows the heartache,
      That lies beyond the smiles,
      No one knows how many times,
      We have broken down and cried.
      We want to tell you something,
      So there won’t be any doubt,
      You’re so wonderful to think of,
      And so hard to be without.

      There is no night without a dawning,
      No winter without a spring,
      And beyond death’s dark horizon
      Our hearts once more will sing.
      For those who leave us for a while
      have only gone away,
      Out of a restless careworn world
      into a “brighter day”.

      We sat beside your bedside,
      Our hearts were crushed and sore;
      We did our duty to the end,
      ‘Til we could do no more.

      In tears we watched you sinking,
      We watched you fade away,
      And though our hearts were breaking
      We knew you could not stay.

      You left behind some aching hearts,
      That loved you most sincere.
      We never shall and never will
      Forget you, Mother dear.

      For many years the family chain
      Was closely linked together,
      But oh! That chain is broken now,
      The main link gone forever.

      That he in death so

      And leave us here alone.

      A sudden call from God on high,
      You had no chance to say goodbye,
      Without farewell you fell asleep,
      But memories of you I’ll always keep;
      And those who loved you dearly,
      Are the ones who won’t forget.

      No farewells were spoken,
      We did not say goodbye,
      You were gone before we knew it,
      And only God knows why;
      But we always will remember,
      Our whole life through,
      The last words we had with you.

      We never fail to pray for you,
      We never cease to care,
      We wish we could
      go home again,
      And find you waiting there.
      To the Throne of Christ
      he will guide us,
      And with us he will stand,

      Where there is injury, pardon,
      Where there is doubt, faith,

      To be understood,
      as to understand;

    • V01: The Rose Beyond The Wall


      A rose once grew,
      where all could see,
      sheltered beside a garden wall,
      and, as the days passed
      swiftly by,
      it spread its branches,
      straight and tall….

      One day, a beam of light
      shone through a crevice
      that had opened wide –
      The rose bent gently
      toward its warmth
      then passed beyond
      to the other side….

      Now, you who deeply
      feel its loss,
      be comforted –
      the rose blooms there –
      its beauty even greater now,
      nurtured by God’s
      own loving care.

      Softly in the morning,
      You heard a gentle call,
      You took the hand God offered you,
      And quietly left us all.

      The day you left us mother,
      Our hearts just broke in two,
      The smallest part is still with us,
      And the biggest part with you.

      For the rest of our lives
      we will miss you mother,
      Our secret tears still flow,
      Oh, how we really loved you,
      No one will ever know.

      We miss your smile,
      your joking ways,
      We miss the things, you used to say,
      And when old times we do recall
      It’s then we miss you most of all.

      You were always there
      when we needed you
      No task too great or small,
      With loving heart and willing hands,
      For us you did it all.

      Look around Your garden Lord,
      And when she turns and smiles,
      Put Your arms around her,
      And hold her for a while.

      Death is nothing at all – I have only slipped away into the next room. 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. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effort. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is absolutely unbroken continuity.
      Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near just around the corner. All is well. Nothing is past; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before-only better, infinitely happier and forever-we will all be one together with Christ.

    • V25: A Letter From Heaven


      I’m writing this from Heaven
      Where I dwell with God above
      Where there’s no more
      tears and sadness
      There’s just eternal love.

      When you are walking
      down the street
      And you’ve got me on your mind
      I’m walking in your footsteps
      Only half a step behind.

      And when you feel
      that gentle breeze
      Or the wind upon your face
      That’s me giving you
      A great big hug
      Or just a soft embrace.

      And when it’s time for you to go
      From that body to be free
      Remember you’re not going
      You are coming here to me.

    • V26: When I Leave


      I am about to leave; my last breath does not say “goodbye” for my love for you is truly timeless. I leave myself not to the undertaker and the grave, but to your memory with love. I leave my thoughts, my laughter, my dreams to you whom I have treasured. I give you what no thief can steal, the memories of our times together; the tender, love-filled moments, the successes we have shared, the hard times that brought us closer together and the roads we have walked side by side. I also leave you a solemn promise that after I am home in the bosom of God, I will still be present in the communion of Saints, whenever and wherever you are in need, call me; I will come to you, with my arms full of wisdom and light to open up your blocked paths, to untangle your knots and to be your avenue to God. And all I take with me as I leave is your love and the millions of memories of all that we have shared. So fear not nor grieve at my departure, you whom I have loved so much, for my roots and yours are forever intertwined.

    • V27: Remember


      Remember me when I am gone away,
      Gone far away into the silent land;
      When you can no more hold me by the hand,
      Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
      Remember me when no more day by day
      You tell me of our future that you plann’d:
      Only remember me; you understand
      It will be late to counsel then or pray.
      Yet if you should forget me for a while
      And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
      For if the darkness and corruption leave
      A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
      Better by far you should forget and smile
      Than that you should remember and be sad.

      So bless the memories within your heart.

      So if you need me, call and I will come.
      Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near;
      And if you listen with your heart you’ll hear
      All of my love around you, soft and clear.

      So you must not idly stand;
      Do it now while life remaineth.

    • V36: Footprints


      One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.

      When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

      This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it.

      “LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, You’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed You most You would leave me”.

      The LORD replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you”.

      We seem to give her back to you, O God who first gave her to us. Yet, as you did not lose her in the giving, so we do not lose her in the return to You. O Lover of men, You do not give as the world gives. What You give You do not take away, for what is Yours is ours also, if we are Yours. And life is eternal and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon, and an horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
      Lift us up, strong Son of God, that we may see further; cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly. Draw us closer to You that we may know ourselves to be nearer to our loved ones who are with You. And while You prepare a place for us, prepare us also for that happy place, that where You are we may be also forever. Amen.

      spreads her white sails to
      the morning breeze,
      and starts out for the blue ocean.
      She is an object of

      And I stand and watch her
      until at length she is only
      a ribbon of white cloud
      just above where the sea and sky
      mingle with each other.
      Then someone at my side says:
      “There! She’s gone!”

      Gone where?
      From my sight-that is all.
      She is just as large in
      mast and hull and spar
      as she was when she left my side,
      and just as able to bear
      her load of living
      freight to the place of destination.
      Her diminished size
      is in me, not in her,
      and just at the moment when
      someone at my side says:
      “There, she’s gone!”

      Are the ones who can’t forget.

      We often sit and think of you,
      And think of how you died;
      To think you could not say goodbye
      Before you closed your eyes.

      Your life was one of kindly deeds,
      A helping hand for others needs,
      Sincere and true in heart and mind,
      Beautiful memories left behind.

      The blow was hard, the shock severe,
      To part with one we loved so dear;
      Our loss is great, we’ll not complain
      But trust in God to meet again.

      Two tired eyes are sleeping,
      Two willing hands are still,
      The one who worked so hard for us,
      Is resting at God’s will.

      Our family chain is broken,
      Nothing seems the same,
      But as God calls us one by one
      The links shall join again.

    • V60: There is a home that lies…


      There is a home that lies beyond
      And past it’s golden door,
      Awaits the one who’s now away,
      Not lost-just gone before,
      And in that home that lies beyond,
      The Master will prepare
      A place for you, and when He calls
      You’ll meet your loved one there.

      They say there is a reason,
      They say that time will heal,
      But neither time or reason,
      Will change the way we feel.
      No one knows the heartache,
      That lies beyond the smiles,
      No one knows how many times,
      We have broken down and cried.
      We want to tell you something,
      So there won’t be any doubt,
      You’re so wonderful to think of,
      And so hard to be without.

      There is no night without a dawning,
      No winter without a spring,
      And beyond death’s dark horizon
      Our hearts once more will sing.
      For those who leave us for a while
      have only gone away,
      Out of a restless careworn world
      into a “brighter day”.

      Hail Mary,
      Full of Grace,
      The Lord is with Thee,
      Blessed art Thou
      among women,
      And blessed is the fruit
      of Thy womb Jesus.

      Holy Mary,
      Mother of God,
      Pray for us sinners,
      Now and at the hour
      of our death.
      Amen.

      There is no night

      our hearts once more will

    • V65: We sat beside your bedside…


      We sat beside your bedside,
      Our hearts were crushed and sore;
      We did our duty to the end,
      ‘Til we could do no more.

      In tears we watched you sinking,
      We watched you fade away,
      And though our hearts were breaking
      We knew you could not stay.

      You left behind some aching hearts,
      That loved you most sincere.
      We never shall and never will
      Forget you, Mother dear.

      For many years the family chain
      Was closely linked together,
      But oh! That chain is broken now,
      The main link gone forever.

      The sunshine of our happy home,
      Must always clouded be,
      But Thou O Lord has sent this cross,
      We bear it all for Thee.

    • V66: The Memorare


      Remember, O most gracious
      Virgin Mary that never was it
      known that anyone who fled to
      Thy protection, implored Thy
      help or sought Thy intercession,
      was left unaided. Inspired by this
      confidence I fly unto Thee,
      O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother;
      to Thee do I come, before Thee I
      kneel sinful and sorrowful.
      O Mother of the Word incarnate,
      despise not my petitions, but in
      Thy clemency hear and answer me.
      Amen.

      O Lord Jesus Christ,
      when the shadows fade
      and the sorrows of
      life are over,
      grant to those we love,
      holy rest and the beauty
      of Thy Peace. Amen.

    • V68: He never thought when leaving…


      She/He never thought
      when leaving home,
      He would never more return,
      That he in death so
      soon would sleep,
      And leave us here alone.

      A sudden call from God on high,
      You had no chance to say goodbye,
      Without farewell you fell asleep,
      But memories of you I’ll always keep;
      And those who loved you dearly,
      Are the ones who won’t forget.

      No farewells were spoken,
      We did not say goodbye,
      You were gone before we knew it,
      And only God knows why;
      But we always will remember,
      Our whole life through,
      The last words we had with you.

      We never fail to pray for you,
      We never cease to care,
      We wish we could
      go home again,
      And find you waiting there.
      To the Throne of Christ
      he will guide us,
      And with us he will stand,
      And that golden chain
      will be linked again,
      Locked by Christ’s Own Hands.

    • V69: A Prayer of Saint Francis


      Lord, make me an instrument
      of Your peace.
      Where there is hatred,
      let me sow love.
      Where there is injury, pardon,
      Where there is doubt, faith,
      Where there is despair, hope,
      Where there is darkness, light,
      and where there is sadness, joy.
      O Divine Master, grant that I may
      not so much seek to be consoled,
      as to console;
      To be understood,
      as to understand;
      To be loved, as to love;
      For it is in giving that
      We receive—
      It is in pardoning that we are
      pardoned;
      And it is in dying that we are
      born to eternal life.

    • V70: Prayer Before A Crucifix


      Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself on my knees in Your sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and implore You to impress upon my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a firm desire of amendment, while with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Your five wounds, having before my eyes that which David spoke in prophesy of You, O good Jesus: “They pierced My hands and My feet and they have numbered all My bones”.
