My Journey’s Just Begun

A short funeral poem by Ellen Brenneman. An uplifting funeral reading about finding peace in the afterlife and saying goodbye to loved ones.

My Journey’s Just Begun

Don't think of me as gone away

My journey's just begun

Life holds so many facets

This earth is but one

Just think of me as resting

From the sorrows and the tears

In a place of warmth and comfort

Where there are no days and years

Think of how I must be wishing

That you could know today

How nothing but your sadness

Can really go away

And think of me as living

In the hearts of those I touched

For nothing loved is ever lost

And I know I was loved so much
