We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart.

Sadly missed along life’s way,
quietly remembered every day.
No longer in our life to share,
but in our hearts, you’re always there.

sympathy poems


Dad, our sadness knows no end;
We can’t believe you’re gone;
We’re grieving for you every day;
It’s hard to carry on.

You were always there to support and care,
When we needed a true friend,
How we’ll ever do without our dad,
We cannot comprehend.

You were our teacher and our guide,
Our dad, so good and strong;
Your example will sustain us now,
And last our whole lives long.

We’re trying to communicate;
We hope that you can hear;
Expressing what we feel for you,
Helps us feel you’re near.

Our memories of the times we had
Help the pain to go away.
But Dad, our lives won’t be the same;
We’ll miss you every day.

A part of us went with you;
You left a gap too big to fill;
You’re our father and our hero;
We love you and we always will.

~ Joanna Fuchs

 

If I should go before you,
I’ll still be there with you,
As every golden memory
Gives comfort, to see you through.

If I should go before you,
You’ll always have my love,
And we’ll be together again,
We two, in heaven above.

~ Joanna Fuchs

 

sympathy poems 2

Your loss is your whole world today;
Your hurt feelings will not go away;
If you’re needing a friend,
On whom you’ll depend,
Call me anytime, any day.

I’m thinking of you, and I care;
If you have feelings you’re wanting to share,
Just give me a ring;
We’ll discuss everything;
When you need me, I’ll always be there.

~ Joanna Fuchs

When you miss him/her,
we’re with you in spirit,
wondering how you feel,
hoping you’re coping,
and getting a little better each day.
We understand. We care.
When you’re grieving,
we’re beside you,
in our hearts, in our thoughts,
we’re sending you sympathy,
encouragement, affection,
and strength to carry on with life.
He/she would want it that way.

sympathy poems 3

No one can know just what you’ve lost;
No one can understand the cost;
But when you feel your energy drain,
Please count on us to help ease your pain.

Let us help you cope with grief;
We hope with time you’ll feel relief.
We can’t replace the one who’s gone,
But let our concern help you carry on.

~ Joanna and Karl Fuchs

 

You are in our thoughts
as you find your way though this.
We are praying for your healing,
with the passage of time.
We know you miss him/her;
we send our understanding
and consolation.
Know that the strain, the pain,
will eventually ease.
May your pleasant memories
sustain and comfort you.
You are in our thoughts.

~ Joanna Fuchs

 

sympathy poems for memorial

They say I’m sorry for your loss
They say your heart will mend
They say you’re in a better place,
and death is not the end.

They say you’re reunited
with loved ones gone before.
They say that you’ll be waiting
when I walk through heaven’s door.

I feel their love in every word
of comfort they impart,
and know that each is spoken
from deep within the heart.

But all the words of comfort,
though kind, sincere, and true,
can’t take away the emptiness
I’m feeling without you.
