We Have Put Together A Selection Of Words You May Like To Consider For Memorials

Memorial Words

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 glint on snow.

Mary Elizabeth Frye

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

David Harkins

Farewell, my friend.
It was beautiful
As long as it lasted,
The journey of my life.

Rabindranath Tagore

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.

Helen Lowrie Marshall

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?

Christina Rossetti

Don’t think of me as gone away,
My journey’s just begun.
Life holds so many facets,
This earth is but one.

Ellen Brenneman

When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with too many tears,
But be thankful we had so many good years.


Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby’s face or love in the eyes of a woman.
Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days of pain.

Robert Test

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.

Henry Scott Holland

Because I have loved life,
I shall have no sorrow to die.
I have sent up my gladness on wings,
To be lost in the blue of the sky.
