“Love, Me” – performed by Collin Raye

I read a note my grandma wrote back in nineteen twenty-three
Grandpa kept it in his coat, and he showed it once to me
He said, “Boy, you might not understand, but a long, long time ago,
Grandma’s daddy didn’t like me none, but I loved your Grandma so”

We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together
Get married in the first town we came to, and live forever
But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet, instead
I found this letter, and this is what it said

If you get there before I do, don’t give up on me
I’ll meet you when my chores are through
I don’t know how long I’ll be
But I’m not gonna let you down, darling wait and see
And between now and then, till I see you again
I’ll be loving you. Love, me

I read those words just hours before my Grandma passed away
In the doorway of a church where me and Grandpa stopped to pray
I know I’d never seen him cry in all my fifteen years
But as he said these words to her, his eyes filled up with tears

If you get there before I do, don’t give up on me
I’ll meet you when my chores are through
I don’t know how long I’ll be
But I’m not gonna let you down, darling wait and see
And between now and then, till I see you again
I’ll be loving you. Love, me
between now and then, till I see you again
I’ll be loving you. Love, me

If you carefully read different funeral poems, you will see that the main theme of many poems is love. Many people still believe that love will surely be present even if death has separated partners and families in a physical level.

One song that many people play during funeral services is entitled “Love, Me” which was performed by Collin Raye. This song definitely depicts the true meaning of love because it talks about two grandparents who are separated by death but their love for each other is still very evident.

This piece will be perfect for the services and memorials of a deceased grandparent. However, this would also fit for the death of a partner. The song tells people that love will still bind two souls together and the other soul will wait for the time to meet his partner in heaven where they could live together again.

If you truly love someone, you can never find a replacement who could take his place in your life. And this song just tells people that fact. This will surely be a good choice for your lineup of funeral songs to be played during a memorial service.
