1. We though of you with love today,
but that is nothing new.
We thought of you yesterday
and the days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have are 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 hearts.

2.Although we can not see you
We know you are here
Smiling down
Watching over us
As we say “I Do.”
Forever in our hearts
Forever in our lives
Is where you’ll always stay.
We will think of you in silence
As we say our vows today
In loving memory of _______

3.If roses grow in Heaven Lord
Please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it everyday,
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.

4.She is gone by David Harkins

You can shed tears that she is gone, Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back, Or you can open your eyes and see all that she’s left

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her, Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone, Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on
