Poem to honor lost loved ones

Hi I could use some ideas on a poem to honor lost loved ones on this beautiful day.

We’re gonna have our siblings read it during the ceremony

    Here are a few I found

    Today is a special day for (Bride & Groom)
    Those around us can share our love
    But those who've departed this earth
    Can smile down on us from above
    We wouldn't be us without (names)
    And want to remember you on our special day.


    If tears could build a stairway
    and memories a lane
    I would walk right up to Heaven
    and bring you back again
    No farewell words were spoken
    No time to say ‘goodbye’
    You were gone before I knew it
    and only God knows why
    My heart still aches in sadness
    and secret tears will flow
    What it meant to love you -
    No one can ever know
    But now I know you want me
    to mourn for you no more
    To remember all the happy times
    life still has much in store
    Since you'll never be forgotten
    I pledge to you today -
    A hallowed place within my heart
    is where you'll always stay


    We thought of you with love today,
    But that is nothing new.
    We thought about you yesterday.
    And days before that too.
    We think of you in silence.
    We often speak your name.
    Now all we have is 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 heart.

    Hi Jasmin! You should also look up “Remember Me” by Margaret Mead and “Remember Me When I’m Gone Away” by Christina Rossetti.

    And here's one more poem by an unknown author:

    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 _______
