Memorial bookmarks are small, laminated bookmarks or cards that are often distributed at funerals or memorial services to serve as a keepsake in remembrance of a loved one who has passed away.
These bookmarks can be placed in books, kept as a memorial in a special place, or used as a bookmark in daily reading materials. They offer a tangible connection to the departed and can provide comfort and solace to those who are grieving.
Here are a few poems that you can consider for funeral memorial bookmarks:
In loving memory,
We gather here,
To bid farewell and shed a tear.
[Name]’s light, though now dimmed,
Will forever shine within our hearts, undimmed.
As we mourn the loss of a cherished soul,
Let’s remember the love that made us whole.
[Name]’s presence may be gone from sight,
But their spirit will forever guide us through the night.
A life well-lived,
Now laid to rest,
Memories of [Name],
Through tears, we grieve,
Yet find solace in knowing,
Their spirit continues, ever-flowing.
In this moment of sorrow,
We stand as one,
Remembering [Name]’s journey, now done.
Though the void may feel immense and deep,
Their legacy and love, forever, we’ll keep.
We gather here, hearts intertwined,
To honour a life that will forever shine.
[Name]’s earthly presence may have ceased,
But their soul’s journey has found eternal peace.
In the tapestry of life,
[Name] played a part,
Leaving footprints on countless hearts.
Though they may be gone,
Their love we’ll hold,
As we reminisce on stories untold.
Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep” by Mary Elizabeth Frye:
“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.
Remember by Christina Rossetti:
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
