    Like many others I am seeking a poem for a memorial service. I have searched 114 poems of Henry VanDyke, the poet but cannot locate his beautiful allusion to a ship sailing away. The last line refers to the far shore and people there saying 'her she comes'. I think this is a commonly used poem on funeral bulletins.

      'Night Esemble' by A.L.Breitling. It is all worked out for voices. I think 6 levels. Brilliant. I will contact the executors of her estate and see if they can post it here.

    I have a friend's funeral to attend tomorrow and I would really like to find a poem either to read or to put in a card. Can anyone suggest an alternative to the classic 'Stop all the clocks'...?

      I think this is quite lovely and filled with meaning: Parable of Immortality I am standing by the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for th ... more

    I'm looking for a poem I learned in Jr. High School. Here is what I can remember.
    did you know that God above created you for me to love, he picked you out from all the rest because he knew i'd love you best. I had a heart and it was true but know it's gone from me to you, so take care of it as I have done for you have two and I have none. If you are not there of judgment day I'll know youve gone the other way. I give the angels back their wings, golden harps and other things. Just to show you what I'd do I'd even go to hell for you.
    I know this is not correct in all but it is what I can remember. Please help. Thanks.
