Need a memorial poem to honor his deceased mom
Does anyone know where I can find a nice memorial poem to put on the programs for my FH mom. She passed and he doesn't want to do a unity candle or put up a photo of her because it's still emotional for him. So we were thinking maybe a poem on the back of the program to acknowledge her in some sort of way. Is there a website I can find some poems?

Although we can not see you
We know you are here
Smiling down
Watching over us
As we say "I Do."
Forever in our hearts
Forever in our lives
Is where you'll always stay.
We will think of you in silence
As we say our vows today


In loving memory of _______

I can't help you with a poem, I'm terrible with that stuff. I would just google memorial poems and see what you find. I think that's a fantastic idea though and very sweet. We are putting two empty chairs at our ceremony with a single white rose on each to remember my grandmothers who have passed and we will have a line in the back of our programs to tell our guests what they represent.

We though of you with love today,
but that is nothing new.
We thought of you yesterday
and the days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have are memories
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we'll never part.
God has you in His keeping,
we have you in our hearts.


but I guess that is more for a frame.

Also, my husband's mom died 6 weeks before the wedding. We put a flower on a chair to reserve one for her. And she loved butterflies, so we had small feather butterflies hidden in the flowers, boutonnieres, BM hair... so we were surrounded by her presence.

If roses grow in Heaven Lord
Please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it everyday,
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.

OMG ladies, I'm getting all misty eyed! These are beautiful! I never had the pleasure of meeting my FMIL as she passed away before I met FH, but what a great way to honor her and the rest of the FILs during the ceremony. Thanks for this post, Maria!
