Sympathy Card Poems, Verses, and Sayings

by Sally Jennings

Life can be difficult at times, especially when loved ones pass away. For some, who have had a long, full life, a true celebration is in order. For others, who pass away young, or leave this world without time for goodbyes, it can be harder to find the appropriate words to express your feelings about the loss. We hope the verses below provide some ideas about how to honor the person who passed away, and comfort those who remain. Whether you use a complete verse, just a part, or use these sympathy verses to make your own, is up to you.

Original sympathy poems, verses and sayings for you to use on blank cards, notes or letters, or in eulogies and memorial books. Please respect my copyright and do not use these commercially, or republish them on the web. Thanks!

The way was dark through the valleys
the hills loomed too high to climb
yet the light at the end of the chasm
beckoned the weary one on

At last the trail on this earth
reached the cleft deep in the rock ---
one last footstep in shadow ---
a hand reaching through from the light ---
the traveller grasped it tightly
and gently slipped from sight

Arm in arm they ascended together
the steps on the other side
to the crowd of familiar faces
to welcoming kisses and hugs
to meadows of flowers and birdsong
resplendent in heavenly dawn
