Funeral Poems for Husbands

This selection of funeral poems for husbands offers brief put powerful words to add to the funeral program.

I'll Miss You

I'll miss you tomorrow

When the toothpaste cap is on

I'll miss you tomorrow

When I must unlock the front door

I'll miss you tomorrow

When mine is the only reflection in the mirror

But I will celebrate today

The memories of you



Beyond The Sunset (Should You Go First)

Should you go first and I remain to walk the road alone

I'll live in mem'ry's garden dear with happy days we've known

In spring I'll wait for roses red when fades the lilacs blue

And in early fall when brown leaves call I'll catch a glimpse of you

Should you go first and I remain for battles to be fought

Each thing you've touched along the way will be a hallowed spot

I'll hear your voice I'll see your smile though blindly I may grope

The mem'ry of your helping hand will buoy me on with hope

Beyond the sunset oh blissful morning when with our Saviour heaven is begun

Earth's toiling ended oh glorious dawning beyond the sunset when day is done.

Should you go first and I remain to finish with the scroll

No less than shadows shall ever creep in to make this life seem droll

We've known so much of happiness we've had our cup of joy

And memory is one gift of God that death cannot destroy

I want to know each step you take that I may walk the same

For someday down that lonely road you'll hear me call your name

Should you go first and I remain one thing I'll have you do

Walk slowly down that long long path for soon I'll follow you

In that fair homeland we'll know no parting beyond the sunset for evermore


One precious to our hearts has gone;

The voice we loved is stilled.

The place made vacant in our home;

Can never more be filled.

Our Father in his wisdom called;

The one his love had given;

And so on earth the body lies;

His soul is safe in Heaven.


We watched him suffer, day by day;

It caused us bitter grief;

To see him slowly pine away;

And could not give relief.

His weary hours and days of pain;

His troubled nights are past;

And in our aching hearts we know;

He has found sweet rest at last.

'Tis sweet to know we will meet again;

Where parting is no more;

And my dear husband I loved so well;

Has only gone before.

God knows how much I miss him;

He counts the tears I shed;

And whispers, "Hush, he only sleeps;

Your husband is not dead."

Some day, some time, my years shall see;

The face I loved so well.

Some day, some time, his hand I'll clasp;

And never say farewell.


The pearly gates were opened;

A gentle voice said "Come,"

And with farewells unspoken;

He gently entered home.


His smiling way and pleasant face;

Are a pleasure to recall;

He had a kindly word for each;

And died beloved by all.

Some day we hope to meet him;

Some day, we know not when;

To clasp his hand in the better land;

Never to part again.





Keep him Jesus, in Thy keeping;

'Til I reach that shining shore;

Then, O Master, Let me have him;

And love him as I did before.
