#1 Eternal Color
In spring, tree's leaves were merely buds when everything was new. 
They couldn't shade, nor hide a bird, but every day they grew. 
Now autumn's here, and leaves have turned from summertime's full bloom. 
They separate from branch, their home, and snow will be their tomb. 
How sad that when they're at their peak it's time for them to go. 
Yet how colorful they made this world; it was God's plan, I know. 
Your life, too, was most beautiful; how brightly shown your heart. 
For now, my friend, you've joined the leaves, and from us, did depart. 

#2 Comfort
In everybody's garden 
A little rain must fall 
Or life's sweetest fairest flowers, 
Wouldn't grow and bloom at all. 
And though the clouds hang heavy 
So heavy. Oh! My friend. 
I'm sure that God who sends the shower 
Will send the rainbow's end. 

Death is not the enemy of life, but its friend, for it is that knowledge that our years are limited which makes them so precious. It is the truth that time is but lent to us which makes us, at our best, look upon our years as a trust handed into our temporary keeping. 
--Joshua L. Liebman

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 autumns 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 star that shines at night. 
Do not stand by my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Leaf after leaf, flower after flower
Some in the dawn of day, some in the after hour.
Alive they flourish and alive they fall
And the Earth that sustained them
Receives them all. 

#6 Irish Blessing
May the road up rise to meet you, 
May the wind be always at your back. 
May the sun shine warm upon your face, 
The rains fall soft upon your fields, 
And until we meet again 
May God hold you in the palm of His hand. 
#7 Serenity Prayer
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. 

The butterfly emerges from its silken shell- 
Reborn, it arises, no longer bound to earth. 
Free at last, the butterfly glides to heights unknown before. 
So do our loved ones find a beautiful release as, 
Earthbound no more, they leave our sight and joyfully rise 
To a garden of matchless beauty, a place of light and peace. 
--Evelyn Phillips 

When I am dead, my dearest, 
Sing no sad songs for me; 
Plant thou no roses at my head, 
Nor shady cypress tree: 
Be the green grass above me 
With showers and dewdrops wet; 
And if thou wilt, remember, 
And if thou wilt, forget. 

I shall not see the shadows, 
I shall not feel the rain; 
I shall not hear the nightingale 
Sing on, as if in pain: 
And dreaming through the twilight 
That doth not rise nor set, 
Haply I may remember, 
And haply may forget. 

#10 Ecclesiastes 3
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to sow,
And a time to reap;
A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to cast away;
A time to rend,
And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;
A time to love,
And a time to hate;
A time of war,
And a time of peace.
