Funeral Poem from a Deceased Grandparent

i am free berevement poemI’m Free…Often a poem from a deceased grandparent and parent to those who mourn can give comfort reminding their grandchildren and children how they wish them to react to their loved one’s death…not to be sad but to celebrate life.

I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.

    I lost my grandad on Saturday. He was a few weeks short of his 80th birthday. I’m glad he’s not suffering anymore, he had dementia an emphysema and struggled to breathe for about the last 8 or more years. Thank you for the poem, it bought tears to my eyes and thank you to god for giving him to us.

    My grandma just died December 28, 2010. she was 60 years old and had cancer throughout her entire body. I am only 16 years old, and my grandma took me in and raised me when my mom left. she truly was the best grandma ever and she was so nice and sweet and there was not one person who could find anything bad to say about her. This poem is really great and it shows how important grandparents are.

    How lovely you were
    How greatful i am
    To have you in my life
    Was the most love anyone could understand
    When we spent time together
    The memories we had will always be there and last forever
    Eternal happiness
    Everlasting laughs
    I see your one great thing that was in my past
    You taught me alot
    Im glad to say
    I love you grandma
    we’ll meet again someday
    Until that day comes
    I shall think of you daily
    The memories, the laughs, the love that we shared
    Im glad to say, i know that you cared
    There’s something about your way of life
    That is always around to bring happiness with light
    When your name is spoken
    From everyone you knew
    Im glad to say that i had time to spend with you.
    When you look down from above
    I feel your eyes meet mine with that specail kind of love.
    Now that your gone i will always remember
    The times that we spent
    Will last forever

    My grandmother passed away August 25th 2008, she was 89 years old. I am the children’s pastor assistant at our church and I was looking for things to do this morning for grandparents day and ran across the Fureral Poem for a Grandparent, it touched me. It helps this first Grandparents Day without her.
