A Farewell to a Beloved Soul Poem Verses

In this moment of grief and loss,
We gather to bid farewell at any cost,
To a life that touched so many hearts,
And left behind countless memories and parts.

Like a butterfly that flutters by,
Your spirit soared up high,
Leaving us to mourn and weep,
In memories that we'll forever keep.

But though you're gone, your legacy stays,
Like a ray of sunshine on the darkest days,
A reminder of the love you shared,
And the impact that you made and dared.

Like Pooh once said, "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard,"
And in your absence, we'll find a way to keep your memory in our hearts.

So we say goodbye, dear one,
And though our hearts may be undone,
We'll find comfort in the memories we share,
And the love that we'll always bear.

For like a butterfly that flies away,
Your spirit lives on every day,
And we'll always be connected by love,
Together, in the heavens above.
