Sometimes song lyrics help us to say what we feel in our hearts.
You may consider quoting from these song lyrics, which may help convey the emotion you're struggling to express during the eulogy you're delivering.
"Time of Your Life" -- performed by Green Day
So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth it was worth all the while
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
"One Sweet Day" -- performed by Mariah Carey
Darling, I never showed you
Assumed you'd always be there
I, I took your presence for granted
But I always cared
And I miss the love we shared
I know you're shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day
"Angel" -- performed by Sarah McLachlan
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there.
"My Heart Will Go On" -- performed by Celine Dion
Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on
"The Way We Were" -- performed by Barbra Streisand
Can it be that it was all so simple then
or has time rewritten every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
tell me would we? Could we?
Memories, may be beautiful and yet
what's too painful to remember
we simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we will remember
whenever we remember
the way we were.
"Dance With My Father" -- performed by Luther Vandross
If I could get another chance
Another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
How I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again.
"To Where You Are" -- performed by Josh Groban
Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be (?)
That you are mine
And you are watching over me from up above
Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you're there
A breath away not far
To where you are.
