Say me well to Bolo

Say me well to Bolo
say me well to Bolo
say me well to my father's pride
say me well to my father's paradise.

Mourning

Mourning

As bereavement cries death's eulogy,
Faithfully God hones ideology.
Just keep love's miraculous notions. 
Overcoming perilous qualms.
For God's assurance shall see thee calm.

Short Eulogy poem by Joseph May| Details |

midnight bells

The bells tolled till midnight
another soul lost the fight
At the wake many tears were shed
funerals are for the living, not the dead
the eulogy was done by Pastor  Fred
who spoke of fire and brimstone instead
At the cemetery  we bid our last goodbye
and laid him to rest under a sad gray sky

Short Eulogy poem by Goode Guy| Details |

ooooh Marian

your sultry voice
your gentle laugh
those warm notes
welcome me in
how long has
this been goin' on

I've been around
and so have you
your soul touches
your fingers dance
gnarled with age
yet light on keys

across a wire
across the sky
clear across time
we say goodbye
how long has
this been goin' on

Short Eulogy poem by Judy Oketch| Details |

The missing part in my Eulogy

That the truth to what I am writing is bare
Is a fact you will determine when you find the missing piece. 
This eulogy is long overdue. 
Then again, even you reading this yet to be told story, 
Even you have words for my corpse then. 
Nonetheless I would not want controversies during my cremation 
So I will tell it in writing…………………...
 Only read my eulogy when the time comes.


Short Eulogy poem by gregory ramos| Details |

i am dead

 lay on my bed
 eyes still to red 

 nevermore a word to be said
 and now I am dead

 say a prayer
 make my eulogy 

 in my favor
 not that it would matter 

 the words that all would savor
 something that would make the 

 people in the back stop their chatter
 rest is all I need 

 and tomorrow you will see
 after the dirt is over me 

 your life will be
 one without we


Short Eulogy poem by Chase Turk| Details |

imminent, dismal

repitious symphathy bracing graffiti upon the walls i animate
elegiac words morphing into their stark existance
inanimate figures peel away to shade the world gray
their vows spoken through echoes of blood screaming out my eulogy
reiterating their prevarications which induce the opaque starlight
the contours emit a reflection deceiving the effigy
singing vacant pantomime to the adorn imperfect perfections


Short Eulogy poem by ifediora okiche| Details |

REALITY

Cemetery soul’s hang
Creative mind die’s
Colourful dreams hang
Wonderful! Nature cries
Insane creative act
Inside white paper
High mental rate
“Gives no water”
Twenty-many soul’s wonder
Dry, rainy session
Mutilate fleshy under
Sensitive smiling session
Lustful eye’s below
Pregnant, Insane carry
Young life below
Man’s baby carry
Eulogy shook infant
Cry, Joy sings
Fate stood erect
Creative mind sings.

Short Eulogy poem by Albert Ahearn| Details |

Reborn

I have been dead for many years; entombed in a mausoleum of viscera and rigid bones. There were no prayers or eulogy spoken on my worthless behalf. Within the tomb lies a stone-cold, dead heart and a extinguished soul. Both suffered a long, lonely death; its cause was flagrancy and strife; until one day she came along with an amorous kiss of life that resurrected my remains infused them with vitality and a different man was reborn.

Irony

The poplar trees stood like sentries
Standing on one leg in their green
Uniformed grandeur. Beyond their
Phalanx could be seen a stately
Manor whose imported marble
Pillars were more decorative
Than utile. Not unlike the sole
Inhabitant who lies dying
In his magnificent antique
Breton bed. He never married-
“I’m too busy for such nonsense.”
Consequently, no progeny,
No living relatives, no one
Only a dreadful eulogy:
Alone died a poor man, indeed!


Short Eulogy poem by Anthony Slausen| Details |

out of keys

pages turn in blackened winds
time looks on and shares a grin

pinwheel spinning silent songs
of endless nights of endless loss

a tear conceived -unrecognized
a trail of salt on keyboard vines

starlight paints frosted eulogy
white roses whirl in arctic seas

suffer through bluing ecstacy
sparkling pinnacles of heart valleys

skipping stones over diamond shoals
kissing perfumed nape while breaking bones

when {grave} becomes the home
a star paints out of key

 


Short Eulogy poem by nathan martin| Details |

inanimate praise

cold has no time,  motion has no voice
 and it has been so long since the stones
 cried out in the open fields.  hardened 
 still cold stones whose only reflection is
  to bruise all flesh.

  graveyard vulgar granite lips have little faith.

  so the eulogy goes something like this. 

 he was always such a good drunk
 when empty bottles around him went clunk.

 happy as piss in a jar that is a wishin
 some raise a bottle others just miss him.

momma

 when we know it is the end 
 when the crying never stops
 when is the tear seen from
 the depth of the soul
 how do we see the fruitfulness 
 of our loved one ? 
 a eulogy ,of family and friends
 pour it in us 
 reminds us of the great love 
 and the cherished memories 
 thou our hearts ache and the 
 river of tears flow 
 we are reminded of a promise 
 Jesus said " because of your faith
 today you will be with me in paradise!


on 11 feb 2014 my sisters momma passed away


Short Eulogy poem by DEBASISH MISHRA| Details |

DEVILS DON'T DIE

Devils don't die....
Devils don't stop....
At times,they may cry...
But never give up !

At times,the Devils succumb...
To forces strong and divine....
To glorify Godly charm....
In the sands of eternal time...!

This eulogy in its every word
May seem to be sheer nonsense;
But a Devil is also a secondary God
Who invites the real Providence...

As long as Godly power lives
The Devils will exist too...
Like branches attached to leaves....
Doing things which we should not do....!
