Sample funeral poem

I opened my eyes on mornings with a smile on my face

But little did I know that my smile would soon fade away

A loving and a caring friend had just passed away

I know that my mornings would never be the same

Today I should face the new mornings

Without your presence, but just with a memory

But soon I should bring back my smile again

Because I know we would be together again
