Consolation's Whisper

Beneath the mourning sky we stand,
Grief's heavy shawl on shoulders worn,
Yet love persists, a guiding hand,
Within our hearts, forever born.


 

Leaves may fall, and winds may shift,
Seasons pass in tender flight,
Memories, our cherished gift,
Keep our lost ones close in light.


 

Their laughter echoes in our dreams,
A symphony of joy once shared,
Though now it flows in silent streams,
Its essence never disappeared.


 

Celebrate the life that's danced,
Through struggles, joys, the span of years,
Legacy in love, enchanced,
Glistens through the vale of tears.


 

We will meet where horizons blend,
In the dusk of stars that gleam,
Farewell is not our journey's end,
But a pause within life's stream.



 

Journey Onward

They've boarded now a ship unseen,
Set sail across a tranquil sea,
Their essence lingers, pure, serene,
A voyage into mystery.


 

In whispered winds, a comforting pledge,
Across the boundless, azure wave,
They walk upon horizon's edge,
Guided by the love they gave.


 

Their passage marked by setting sun,
A fiery kiss to end the day,
Their presence felt, though they have gone,
In every dusk's display.


 

Ripples on the water's face,
Reflect the stars that softly shine,
Each a memory to embrace,
Eternal and divine.


 

As evening's shroud is gently drawn,
We sense their quiet, steady glow,
Not truly gone, they journey on,
In the afterglow we know.



 

Through Nature's Lens

The soaring lark, at break of day,
Announces morn with sweet refrain,
Reminds us love will find a way,
Beyond the realms of earthly pain.


 

The river's course, so sure and deep,
Through canyons carved and meadows green,
Mirrors the love our hearts will keep,
A force serene, though unseen.


 

The oak stands tall, its roots below,
It whispers strength in rustling leaves,
In life's firm soil, memories grow,
And solace for the one who grieves.


 

The butterfly's delicate dance,
From bloom to bloom in skies so vast,
Inspires a trance, a soulful glance,
At beauty that will ever last.


 

Look through nature's tender lens,
Find the peace that never ends,
For life's essence never bends,
In love, it simply transcends.



 

Garden of Eternity

In gardens where wildflowers play,
And willows weep to kiss the ground,
There spirits roam in light of day,
Where peace and solace can be found.


 

Each petal holds a memory sweet,
In colors lively, never fade,
Their fragrance fills a soft retreat,
Where thoughts of sorrow slowly wade.


 

The verdant leaves tell tales of old,
Of lives that touched the earth and sky,
In whispers through the green and gold,
They speak of love that doesn't die.


 

Beneath the soil, roots intertwine,
Sustaining every tender bloom,
As does our love, with touch divine,
It nurtures through the joy and gloom.


 

In our heart's garden, they'll abide,
Forever in its sacred bower,
Amongst the blossoms, side by side,
Their souls amongst the living flower.



 

Heaven's Tapestry

The threads of life, so gently spun,
Weave patterns in the sky so vast,
Each golden beam, each setting sun,
Marks love that eternally lasts.


 

See constellations tell their tales,
Heroes' might and lovers' kiss,
The spirit sails where wonder prevails,
On celestial seas of bliss.


 

Soft silver threads in moonlight's gleam,
The comforting cloak of night's embrace,
Our loved ones dance in twilight's dream,
Their serenity we can trace.


 

In aurora's weave, green and blue,
An artwork of divine caress,
Their elegance we pursue anew,
Within its glow, our souls confess.


 

Heaven's tapestry, intricate, wide,
Each loving stitch a tender guide,
Where spirits dwell, where dreams reside,
In woven warmth forever tied.



 

When The Leaves Whisper

When leaves whisper in autumn's hush,
Each sound a testament of life,
A symphony in the twilight's blush,
A harmony beyond the strife.


 

Their voices carried on the breeze,
In russet tones and golden hue,
A timeless dance amongst the trees,
A gentle reminder, ever true.


 

Rustling gently, they seem to say,
"All things must rest, then rise anew,"
In cycles of the night and day,
Each ending begins with a view.


 

So when the leaves fall to the ground,
Embrace the cycle's quiet charm,
In their descent, there's wisdom found,
A peaceful end, no cause for alarm.


 

Their whispers soft in autumn's ear,
Speak of the loved ones we hold dear,
In every rustle, they appear,
To reassure, "We're always near."



 

Eternal Echoes

Our voices echo in the stones,
Of chapels standing through the age,
The solitude we are not alone's,
A love that's penned upon life's page.


 

Within these silent halls of peace,
Resides a resonance of souls,
A chorus that will never cease,
As time's unyielding river rolls.


 

The laughter, joy, and tears they knew,
Are carved in marble, etched in light,
Their stories just, their hearts were true,
A presence felt by day and night.


 

This edifice of sacred trust,
Holds more than those to earth returned,
Their spirits roam, and so they must,
In love's eternal flame unburned.


 

For echoes are not just past's breath,
But life's continuation, spread,
Beyond the silent halls of death,
An endless symphony, ahead.



 

Glimpse of the Stars

In night's embrace, we lift our eyes,
To glimpse the vast and starry realm,
Where quietus finds its gentle guise,
And tranquil waves the helm.


 

Each twinkle in the endless dark,
A storia of the souls so dear,
Their radiant light, an eternal spark,
That whispers, "We are always near."


 

The cosmic dance, so grand, so true,
Unfurls across the canvas high,
As galaxies in deepening hue,
Remind us life does not just die.


 

For in the stars, their smiles we find,
A luminous bridge ‘twixt hearts and minds,
A bond that time cannot unbind,
A connection deep and kindly lined.


 

When sorrow seeks to cloud our way,
Let starlight's gleam assuage our fears,
Their legacy in skies does stay,
Adorning night with love's frontiers.



 

Reflections of a Lifetime

Like ripples spreading on a lake,
Each life extends in gentle arc,
In memories that we partake,
Their glow remains within the dark.


 

The love they shared, the pain they bore,
Now mirrored in the waters calm,
Their spirit opens every door,
Bestowing us their soothing balm.


 

With every wave that laps the shore,
Comes echoes of their laughter, sweet,
A testament forevermore,
In every heartbeat they repeat.


 

As sunlight fades to twilight's grace,
Their silhouette on water's edge,
Their essence none could e'er erase,
Nor time's relentless sledge.


 

So, let the lake reflect their light,
Their stories in its surface write,
Never lost within the night,
But shining on, forever bright.



 

The Eternal Garden

In gardens of eternity,
Where time's soft hands cannot defile,
Our cherished ones roam ever free,
Within the sun's eternal smile.


 

Each blossom nurtured by their love,
Each rose imbued with hues of grace,
Their spirit, like a peaceful dove,
Glides through this sacred, timeless space.


 

With every dawn, the lilies lift,
Their faces to the skies above,
Each petal's bloom, a fragrant gift,
A symbol of enduring love.


 

Their laughter in the brook's sweet song,
Their whispers in the willow's sway,
In this garden, they belong,
In every golden ray.


 

As balmy breezes gently pass,
Through this garden without end,
Their presence known within the grass,
Forever our beloved friend.
