Mourn Me Not For I Live On: An Etched Memorial Poem 20×16 inches

Written by on September 11, 2013 with 0 Comments



A picture poem to honor the life of a loved one.


“Mourn Me Not For I Live On”


“Mourn me not for I live on;

there are places still to go.

I've been blessed so many ways

and ways I don't yet know.

Life has changed but is not gone—

mourn me not for I live on.”


This poem was originally commissioned by the family of a much loved and respected father/grandfather, and we included some special text in it to commemorate the fact that he was a huge college basketball fan.  The family loved it, and I was told that it was enjoyed by everyone who saw it at the memorial service.  I enjoy writing these memorials because it enables me to learn about the interesting lives that so many people have led.

This is an etched piece, 20 inches by 16 inches, framed and double matted.  The photo opening is 5 inches by 7 inches. This is shown in dark brown matte with gold matte around the photograph, with a black frame.

I can write one for your loved one (see Commissioned Poems*), or we can use the text from this one, and we can have it etched for you.  You need only insert the photograph of your choice.  It can be ordered in other matte colors, but since it is etched, dark colors work best.  The text will appear beige or tan.

Priced at $299.99.    Includes personalization with name and years of life.  You will need to email your loved one's name and years of life to me so these can be etched. Contact me with information and correct spelling.  A unique way to celebrate your loved one's life.

Shipping, handling and sales tax are extra.

Disclaimer:  Despite appearances to the contrary, I am not dead yet! Yes, that's me in the middle of the matte, but, as on other pieces, I am a cheap model!

*(Note: a Commissioned Poem will be higher in price than this one. Sorry. I felt it only fair to warn you.)

For etched pieces, please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.
