Funeral Poems for Wife

The Day She Left

We watched her suffer, day by day;
It caused us bitter grief;
To see her slowly pine away;
And could not give relief.
Her weary hours and days of pain;
Her troubled nights are past;
And in our aching hearts we know;
She has found sweet rest at last.
'Tis sweet to know we will meet again;
Where parting is no more;
And my dear wife I loved so well;
Has only gone before.
God knows how much I miss her;
He counts the tears I shed;
And whispers, "Hush, she only sleeps;
Your wife is not dead."
Some day, some time, my years shall see;
The face I loved so well.
Some day, some time, her hand I'll clasp;
And never say farewell.

The pearly gates were opened;
A gentle voice said "Come,"
And with farewells unspoken;
She gently entered home.
Her smiling way and pleasant face;
Are a pleasure to recall;
She had a kindly word for each;
And died beloved by all.
Some day we hope to meet her;
Some day, we know not when;
To clasp her hand in the better land;
Never to part again.

Another Funeral Poem For A Wife;

The depths of sorrow we cannot tell;
Of the loss of one we loved so well;
And while she lies in peaceful sleep;
Her memory we shall always keep.

We know that she is happy;
In our Saviour's home above;
Growing fairer as she lingers;
In the sunshine of His love.

Her loving face I hope to see again;
Though the days have passed away;
Sleep on, dear wife, and take thy rest;
They miss you most who loved you best.

We are sad within our memory;
Lonely are our hearts today;
For the one we loved so dearly;
Has forever been called away.

My lips cannot tell how I miss her;
My heart cannot tell what to say.
God alone knows how I miss her;
In a home that is lonesome today.

The pearly gates were opened;
A gentle voice said "Come";
And with farewells unspoken;
She gently entered home.

Gone from the earth so swiftly;
Just like a flower in bloom;
So young, so fair, so loving;
Yet called away so soon.

We'll meet her some glad morning;
Resting by waters fair;
She is waiting for our coming;
In the upper garden there.
