Butterfly Funeral Poems
Am Always With You
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.
I gave you my love, and you can only guess
How much you've given me in happiness.
I thank you for the love that you have shown,
But now it is time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust
That it is only for a while that we must part,
So treasure the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away for life goes on.
And if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I will be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All my love around you soft and clear
And then, when you come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and a "Welcome Home".
Messenger of God
Oh, Little Butterfly,
Messenger of God,
When I see you in the sky
I cannot help but nod.
You bring me respite
From grief and despair
Every time I see you
Sailing through the air.
You renew my faith
In all God's wondrous plan,
And I know it's all in FAITH,
Not in what I understand.

On The Wings
As you release this butterfly
in honor of me,
Waiting for Thee:
From Dan & Zane Greathouse:
"A butterfly lights beside us
like a sunbeam.
On the back of the paper it says:
"Today we celebrate life with

Little Did We Know
Little did we know that morning that God would
call you name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone. For part of us went
with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, you are
always on our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
I am home in Heaven, dear ones
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over, Every restless tossing passed:
I am now at peace forever, Safely home in Heaven at last. Did
you wonder how I so calmly Trod the valley of shade?
Oh! But Jesus' love illumined every dark and fearful glade.
And he came himself to meet me in that way so hard to tread.
And with Jesus' arm to lean on, could have no doubt or dread.
Then you must not grieve so sorely, 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 that work is all completed. He will gently call you home:
Oh, the rapture of that meeting, Oh, the joy to see you come!
My Beautiful Baby
I thought that the night you died was the worst of my life.
But that night I was able to hold and kiss you.
I have wished every day and night since then to be able to do the same,
but can only dream of it now.
Some nights my dreams are so real, I awaken expecting to find you here with me.
Dreams and memories can make you sad for not having future times together
but they can also bring back happier times
like the day that did bring us together 44 years ago
It's been seven years since that tragic day. Physical tragedy brings pain
and suffering, but for us Christians there is a supernatural strength
that brings us hope, courage, and joy to keep perspective the
reality that since we are immortals in the will of God, our meeting in
Heaven is waiting for us: yes, one day we will be together again.
It is our blessed hope, and because we were saved in this hope,
we eagerly wait for our new bodies, bodies that will never be
sick again and will never die.
With Love Today
We thought of you with love today,
But this is nothing new,
We thought of you yesterday and the days before that too.
We think of you in silence and
often speak you name.
All we have now are our memories,
and you picture in a frame.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
A part of us went with you
The day God took you home.
Death is not the end.
Death can never be the end.
Death is the road
Life is the traveler
The Soul is the guide
Our mind thinks of death
Our heart thinks of life
Our Soul of immortality.
A Bouquet of beautiful memories,
Sprayed with a million tears,
Wishing God could have spared you,
If just for a few more years.
We love you, we miss you and
We are proud to keep your dream and vision alive.

We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever.
This great purple butterfly,
Know thyself! A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever observes
Bees sip honey from flowers and hum their thanks when they leave.
We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes

A million butterflies rose up from South America,
That first bright step into the sunshine of life
What she is today is but a tiny mirror.
Whether as wife, mother, career woman or all,
Using the instincts that each of us have
With loving support of family and friends,
Finding excitement and challenge at each new turn.
