Mother-in-law Funeral Poems

Farewell to a Guiding Star

Gentle light, softly dimmed,
A path you paved with grace.
Words of wisdom, like lanterns held,
Guided us through each phase.

In love's fabric, tightly woven,
Your strength was threads of gold.
A haven formed from steadfast care,
Warmth against the cold.

Now you sail beyond the dusk,
Where stars shine out so far.
Leaving us your legacy,
A luminescent guiding star.

Our hearts hold tight your memory,
In each dawn's gentle glow.
Farewell, dear guide, your journey’s on,
In the love you've taught, we grow.

A Quilt of Many Colors

Stitched with care, each thread weaves,
A tapestry of love she leaves.
Colors blend, warmth within,
Her hands wrought comfort, kin to kin.

Patch by patch, life's stories told,
In vibrant hues, bold yet old.
Every piece a memory,
Her legacy, a quilted sea.

Under this comforter, nights grew soft,
Her love, the loft in every cloth.
Now she rests, her work complete,
In heaven's warmth, her peace replete.

Your Light in Our Hearts

Your light, a gentle, steady glow,
Echoes in the places you would go.
Soft footprints in our days remain,
Your warmth resides in each refrain.

Through trials, your wisdom our guide,
In joys, your laughter by our side.
Never dimming, ever bright,
In dark times, our guiding light.

Though you’ve sailed beyond our view,
Your spirit's touch in morning dew.
In each sunrise, your face we see,
A beacon for our family tree.

Your legacy, like stars above,
Still guiding us with endless love.
A luminary, softly departed,
Forever shines, warm-hearted.
