SAYING GOODBYE May today's tears of heartfelt sorrow Be signs of hope for a brighter tomorrow And the pain and grief that we are feeling Give way to joy through God's merciful healing For goodbye is not 'gone forever' It's only for a while And when we get together again We'll share in one big smile. ~ Jeffrey Eilerman ~

REMEMBRANCE DAY FOR CELIA HIRIA HOHEPA (MUM) - GEOFFREY PIHEMA HOHEPA (OUR BROTHER) 17 August 2011, 18 August 1985 Gone, But Not Forgotten - Marilyn Ferguson Gone, but not forgotten This pain, I cannot hide In memory, I see you A million tears, I've cried. The tender thoughts you left me Come to my memory Your loving smile, so precious Will always be with me. You visit me in summer When flowers are in bloom Upon a ray of sunshine A star-lit night in June. When winds are gently blowing Across a cloudless sky Within a rolling meadow Where horse and cattle lie. I see you in the treetops As summer comes to be In shadows, you do linger A soul so young and free. I see you in the garden Your scent does fill the air Just like a precious flower A rose, so ever fair. On country roads, I find you Along the wooded lane Within the distant thunder I see you in the rain. In early hush of morning You come without a sound Upon a blazing sunset Your memory can be found. Like sprigs of morning glory Upon the vine, they grow With branches reaching outward Into my heart, you go. Just like a special angel God wrapped you in His care And took you off to heaven To live with Him, up there. But often, I still see you Upon a light blue sky And long so much to hold you Why did you have to die? Marilyn Ferguson Always remembered Love from your whanau!

Sleep in Peace Sweet smile on your face as you sleep the pain away, Resting in God's arms now, although in the ground your body lay. He needed another angel in the Heavenly choir and that's why you had to go. As you promised, you are still with us watching your children here below.

I never would have imagined the end would be like this, me comforting you. Holding your hand, telling you not to worry was not an easy thing for me to do. And even in your weakest hour you tried to comfort me too, Caressing my face, and calming my soul as only a mother can soothe.

You have always been there through the thick and the thin No matter what I've done, unconditionally you love never wavering. When I told you of the mistakes I made and all the times people saw me fall You simply nodded and gently replied 'so have we all'. The key to success is learning from the past Ensuring a brighter future is now the present task.

A pillar of strength even until the end Fighting all life's battles, knowing it's triumphantly you would win Pushing me to be the best that you know I can be Reminding me to keep the faith and allow God to lead me. Knowing it's through Christ that I can do all things And as He never makes a mistake I will come through victoriously.

I miss you more than these words could ever say The pain in my heart is from one unimaginable day After I cried all that I could; my eyes still shed countless more tears And when I try to sleep, I have nightmares of ten-thousand fears I walk in footsteps on an unsure path My load feels so heavy I am not sure I will last.

Silly though I may be I am afraid of life now that you're gone Because I've always had a mother. And Mummy, what about my sisters and my brothers I wish you could have stayed just a little while longer, there's so much left to do I wonder if I prayed hard enough and if so, did they get through.
Posted by Ngahuia Banks on 22nd August 2013
Finding relief in knowing I will see you again someday soon Remembering all you taught me as my soul I continue to groom I will walk in footsteps you have walked before me Seeing the path you walked lead you, Mummy, straight into victory.

So as you sleep Mummy, in the cradle of the Lord, I am reassured of God's promises in His Holy Word. I dream of the day when Heaven's gates open to receive me And with your smiling face and loving eyes, reunited once again I will be.

My son, keep your father's commandment, and don't forsake your mother's teaching. Proverbs 6:20

31:30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised. 31:31 Give her credit for what she has accomplished, and let her works praise her in the city gates.
