Words of Comfort on the Death of a Loved One

May your loved one rest in peace. Let these words of comfort help you to cope with your loss of someone you loved and still love.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.
- From a headstone in Ireland

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

I cannot share your memories or your loss.
My words of sympathy are beneath measure, yet
know that my heart reaches out with love to your heart.

I Did Not Die
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 glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain,
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
- Anonymous

Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides.
- Lao Tzu

Death is not extinguishing the light;
it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.
- Rabindranath Tagore

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft starts that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.
- Traditional Native American Prayer

It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
- St. Francis of Assisi

Farewell, dearest friend, never to see one another any more till at the right hand of Christ.
- Donald Cargill

Death is the veil which those who live call life; They sleep, and it is lifted.
- Percy Bysshe Shelley

In the night of death, hope sees a star,
and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing.
-Robert Ingersoll

He spake well who said that graves are the footprints of angels.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

While we are mourning the loss of our friend,
others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
-John Taylor

It is the will of God and Nature that these mortal bodies be laid aside,
when the soul is to enter into real life; 'tis rather an embryo state,
a preparation for living; a man is not completely born until he be dead:
Why then should we grieve that a new child is born among the immortals?
- Benjamin Franklin

Momma always said dyin' was a part of life.
I sure wish it wasn't.
- the movie Forrest Gump

All Is Well
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.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used
Put no difference in your tone,
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household world that it always was,
Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It it the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
All is well.
- Henry Scott Holland

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
- Reinhold Niebuhr

I leave no trace of wings in the air,
but I am glad I have had my flight.
- Rabindranath Tagore

Death is nothing else but going home to God,
the bond of love will be unbroken for all eternity.
- Mother Teresa
