Sample Tributes / Eulogies To Late Brother
How can all of this be true?
I can’t believe you’re really gone;
I still can’t accept it,
Even after so long.
Just the thought of you makes me cry.
I never even got the chance to say goodbye.
Every picture, every letter…
I don’t know if it will ever get better.
I always smell your familiar scent.
It makes me think of all of the times we’ve spent.
I know we didn’t always get along,
And every time we talked, it would always go wrong.
So many things I never got to say.
I never imagined you’d ever be so far away.
You were my brother,
And I loved you like no other..
In my heart you’ll always be;
You’ll be my guide and help me see.
I’ll never forget your soothing voice.
I would take your place if I had a choice.
But now I have to let you rest,
Although without you my world’s a mess.
I miss you with all of my heart.
I wish we never had to part.
I know you’re always by my side,
So now I guess this is my goodbye…
Rest in Peace my beloved Brother
Now all I do is fight back my tears.
I wanted to do everything you did,
because I wanted to be just like you.
Now I sit here wondering what to do,
because there’s no one to replace you.I never did tell you all the things I felt,
like how much I really did love you.
I wish we could go back and start over again.
I don’t want to be alone. I need my brother.
I need my best friend.When you think of me
while you’re up in heaven,
think of how much you meant to me.It’s sad that you left
without saying goodbye,
but just remember we all love you
as you began to fly.You did so much for me,
though I didn’t do much for you.
I hope you will forgive me
for all the things I didn’t do.
You were my brother
and my best friend.
I will always love you,
no matter how long its been
since your life came to an end.
I love you brother
I learned a lot I didn’t know,
But you forgot to teach me one last thing –
How to let you go.
I know you didn’t mean to leave me;
Sometimes we have no choice.
I miss being your little sister,
Hearing my name called by your voice.
I wish I got to say “I Love You”
Before you were given to the sky.
If God could grant me one last wish,
I’d ask to say “Goodbye.”
You always meant a lot to me.
I could never love you less,
I know it’s true when they say,
“He only takes the best.”
Although there’s so much that you’ve left bare
I hate that you had to endure such pain
On my mind, your saddened eyes have left a stain.
I want to know what crossed your mind
Unspoken words you’ve left behind
Undone things we’ll never do
No sharing thoughts you never knew.
A peace has fallen upon your head
A taste of sorrow we have been fed
It really is like a hole in our lives
One swiftly dug but carved out by knives.
But I have hope that those sleeping will rise
The Bible says that God will open their eyes.
No suffering, sickness, yes not even pain,
Those who did good, eternal life they’ll gain.
So… sleep on my brother, sleep tight
For now with you the sky is night.
But after night will come daybreak
Therefore I will wait hoping to see you awake.
You’re no longer here to share
The bond we had together –
A bond of love and care.
Yet, somehow something tells me
You are watching over me –
Now that from Worldly cares
You finally are free.
I miss you so very much,
And my tears I cannot hide
Yet, within my heart, I feel
You are always by my side.
Ever since you went away
Life has never been the same
Yet, it comforts me to know
That one day we’ll meet again.
A generous hand and an active mind
Anxious to please and loath to offend
A loving brother and faithful friend
We’ll all miss you very much
consumed in grief.
Sorrow has arrived,
with smiles thief.
We’re gathered here,
to mourn and cry.
Our questions pointing,
at the clear blue sky.
Why did you go,
why did you leave,
Life without you,
is so hard to conceive.
Our hearts are damaged,
and scarred severely.
We shall miss you,
much more than dearly.
For having you in our lives,
we’ve all been blessed.
But now the time has arrived,
for you to rest.
We promise to cherish,
our memories of you.
You shall live in our minds,
and all that we do.
We fought, we laughed, we cried.
We did not always show the love,
that we both had inside.
We shared our dreams and plans,
and some secrets too.
All the memories we share,
Is what bonds me now to you.
We grew to find we have a love
that is very strong today.
It’s a love shared by our family,
that will never fade away.
You are my brother not by choice,
but by the nature of our birth
I could not have chosen a better one
you were the best on earth.
since I’ve seen your face.
I miss you so much,
in my heart you will always hold a special place.
All the good times we’ve shared,
the memories we’ve made.
Every day I think about them all,
From my mind they will never fade.
How I wish we could walk arm in arm, hand in hand, heart to heart.
If I would’ve known that it would end like this,
I thought we’d never have to be apart.
You were always the light at the end of my storm.
the star in my sky.
You were a blessing,
you were perfect in my eye.
So many questions I still have to ask,
my best friend gone.
You were too young to go,
it didn’t have to be like this, you didn’t have to die.
From now until the end of my life you will be on my mind,
I love you,
I miss you,
and this is how it will stay…
that you finally got it your way
you left us here, without a farewell
leaving behind just your smellThe amount of tears I’ve cried,
is nothing compared to the pain inside.Everyone tells me to respect your decision
and understand that you fulfilled your mission
but they don’t understand my pain
they don’t know how it feels to be stuck under the rainI wish I could hold you
and tell you that I love you
I wish I could understand
I wish I was there to hold your hand
maybe I could have changed your mind
The night that you decided to leave
and to no longer believe
I know you weren’t afraid anymore
of who would be waiting for you at the door
I finally saw your last letter
I was hoping it would make me feel better
instead I miss you more
and your last words made me swore
it made me wish you weren’t gone
because I don’t know for how long I can stay strong
It’s been 2 weeks I lost you brother
it’s been 2 weeks I lost my other
I wish you had given me the chance
to take one last glance
at you face filled with love
before you fly away like a dove
Rest in peace brother
I hope you will no longer suffer
I will be waiting for you in my dreams
to re-live all those beautiful memories.
