God only cries by Diamond Rio

On an icy road one night
A young man loses his life
They marked the shoulder with a cross
An’ his family gathers round
On a piece of Hallowed ground
Their hearts are heavy with their loss
As the tears fall from their eyes
There’s one who’ll always sympathise Read more

It’s time to change our tradition.

We can never say our life is well spent, not unless we experience death. In the last moments of our life, we would want to say our goodbye’s, thank you’s, and I love you’s to the people who loved, who cared for us, and who gave purpose to our life. Read more

The Last Waltz ~ Engelbert Humperdink

I wondered should I go or should I stay,
The band had only one more song to play.
And then I saw you out the corner of my eye,
A little girl, alone and so shy.

I had the last waltz with you,
Two lonely people together.
I fell in love with you,
The last waltz should last forever.

But the love we had was going strong,
Through the good and bad we get along.
And then the flame of love died in your eye,
My heart was broke in two when you said goodbye. Read more

Thank you by Johnny Reid

If I only had, two words left to say to you.
With my last breath I’d come face the truth to you.
You’ve never left my side, even when I fell behind.

Thank you for the life you’ve given me.
Thank you for sharing all your love and your dreams.
Thank you for every tear of happiness I’ve cried.
Thank you for laying down your life to be crucified.

When I close my eyes, I say a prayer to talk to you.
And when I wake, I embrace the one who pulls me through.
Who pulls me through the storm when I can’t go on. Read more

Joey (Sugarland)

What if I said yes
What if I’d gone out that night
What if you’d turned left
Everything would’ve turned out alright
What if I’d spoke up
What’d if I’d took the keys
What if I had tried a little harder instead of always trying to please

Joey I’m so sorry
Oh oh can you hear me
Joey I’m so sorry Read more

5 Quotes on Death to Live By

The death of someone we love is an emotionally devastating experience. The pain can’t be simply put into words and we’re oftentimes left with so many questions. We feel confused and this is normal. This could be the reason why eulogies are so difficult to deliver. That is because not only are we to contend with our grief on a personal level, but we’d also have to stand in front of people who feel the same way while trying to make sense to them what just happened when we ourselves might still have no clue. However, people depend on our strength, especially in this most trying time. In a time of internal turmoil, sometimes, we must be the ones people have to depend on or else everybody won’t be able to stand what little ground they have. Read more
