Sample Tributes / Eulogies To Dead Sister
And yet that is still too long.
I still love you the same as if you were still here with me, laughing during the good times and crying during the bad ones.
I miss being able to call you any time and spend hours talking about everything under the sun.
As children we were practically joined at the hip,
But we grew up and grew apart, as most siblings do.
We had our own set of friends and our own set of goals for our lives, but that still didn’t change the fact that we were sisters.
There was nothing that I wouldn’t do for you and nothing that you wouldn’t do for me.
I always wish you were still here with me enjoying life,
But I can understand why God would want such a beautiful angel on his side from now until eternity.
Just know that I love and miss you,
And this is the tribute to you, my big sister.
I’d like to talk with you today,
there are so many things
that we didn’t get to say.
My sister, I know how much you care for me,
and how much I care for you,
and each time I think of you,
I know you’ll miss me too.
An angel came and took you by the hand, and said
your place was ready in heaven, far above…
and you had to leave behind, all those you dearly loved.
You had so much to live for, you had so much to do…
It still seems impossible that God was taking you.
And though your life on earth is past, in Heaven it starts anew.
You’ll live for all eternity, just as God has promised you.
And though you’ve walked through Heaven’s gate,
we’re never far apart,
for every time I think of you
you’re right here, deep within my heart.
God was to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
The moment I realized,
my sister just died.
My hands cradled my face,
and I frantically cried.
Why did this happen,
and how could this be.
She had so much to live for,
we could all clearly see.
My heart simply dropped,
and felt a sharp pain.
My tears fell instantly,
Like a severe August rain.
I was truly lucky,
to have a sister like her.
nod and concur.
I will miss our talks,
and her comforting voice.
And those random moments,
where we’d mutually rejoice.
Rest in peace,
Sister and best friend,
My deepest love,
to the sky I shall send.
We stand motionless,
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.
My sister, 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.
I wish you sweet sleep, my sister dear.
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 sister, 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.
This is the legacy we have from you.
You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another,
Not just as a sister, wife or mother.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep.
God looked around his garden and found an empty place
He then looked down upon the Earth and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest
With the help of his angels they flew you to your heavenly place
Gods garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best
He knew you were suffering, he knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never get well on Earth again
He saw the road was getting rough and the hills too hard to climb
He closed your weary eyelids and whispered “Peace be Thine”
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone
For part of us went with you the day God called you home.
But here I am,
Without you by my side,
We’re sisters for life,
But now you’re gone,
I don’t know what to do,
I’m going crazy,
I’m trying to hold on,
To keep strong,
But it just doesn’t feel right,
I’m waiting here,
My arms wide open,
Tears running down my face,
Ready for your return,
Even if it takes forever,
I’m blessed to call you sister,
I also call you friend;
You’ve loved me unconditionally,
And stood through thick and thin.
You’ve shared my joys and sorrows,
My laughter and my tears.
You’ve been my inspiration,
As we grew up through the years.
When we were little children
We laughed and played together;
Then growing up you stood by me,
Through good and stormy weather.
There’s something God has given us,
That’s more than family;
He’s placed a love for you, my Sister,
Deep down in the heart of me.
when you were here with me?
When you closed your eyes and soared
to the Heavens I could hear the
faint flutter of you wings as you left.
Your body no longer on this side
Your spirit here eternally I see your halo shine.
I close my eyes and see the multi-coloured wings
surround me in my saddest moments and my happiest times.
Sister my angel God has given you your assignment
always my sister forever my angel.
You fly into my dreams and when I am asleep
I feel your wings brush against my face wiping away
the tears I shed since I can no longer hold
you in my arms but in my heart.
You earned those wings dear sister
and you will always be my angel eternal.
No matter how much we argued, we could not be drawn apart.You were a friend who helped me through difficult times,
Your comforting words were worth much more than dimes.
A partner who filled my life with laughs and smile,
These memories last for miles and miles.When you were by my side, my world was filled with life,
When you were not around, my days were full of strife.
My sister, you were a blessing, who filled my heart with love,
You flew with me in life with the beauty of a dove.You were a companion to whom I could express your feelings,
Whether I am having my ups or downs,
You always helped me with a smile and never frowns.With you, I cannot have a grudge,
You were as sweet as chocolate and as smooth as fudge.
Having a sister like you was not just a trend,
It is knowing I could always turn to you, my best friend.
