“Wind Beneath My Wings” – performed by Bette Midler

Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, ohhh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
To never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero,
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
But I’ve got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero?
You’re everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you’re my hero?
You’re everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings,
’cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
So high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.

 “Wind Beneath My Wings” was performed by Bette Midler and this is a very emotional song that can be played during a memorial service. This will be most appropriate for the death of a parent, a grandparent, a best friend, or someone who has been an inspiration to you.

Looking at the cremation urns that hold the remains of someone who has been your strength all your life will surely be devastating because it signifies that he will no longer be physically available the next time you will need his help. But this moment is not about you. It should be about the life of the deceased.

This is song is a tribute to that other person because it identifies his contribution to your life and his importance as to why you are who you are today. This is why this piece is perfect for parents because it talks about them as being a role model and that you would want to be like them someday.

Even if you are devastated of their death, you still believe that God has a better plan for you and for their souls. Look for other inspirational and meaningful funeral songs at www.songmeanings.net
