Poems To Say At A Funeral

Poems To Say At A Funeral

A poem at a funeral reminds people of several things and one of them is that the person who just died is still very special for all those around him. A poem should be as special as the person himself and that is why funeral poems come across as extremely sentimental. When you are selecting the poems to recite at a funeral, keep in mind the person who died and also his or her likes and dislikes. The poem should be about them rather than death or being philosophical. The poem could also carry a meaning that expresses how special the person was for you.

Here are couple of poems that you can say at a funeral:

Miss me, but let me go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free
Miss me a little - but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me - but let me go
For this is a journey that we must all take
And each must go alone
It's all a part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home
When you are lonely, and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me - but let me go
-Anon

This is a personalized poem, but parts of its can be used for a wake or when remembering the deceased in a gathering. Alternatively, you can change the poem to personalize it for the deceased.

(Alan), we're not gathered together in a gloom filled room
There's no heads bowed low for you
We're having a 'do' in the (Park)
Cos we know you'd want us to
You've taken the journey we all must take
We take comfort and we know
You're now reunited with (Veronica)
We miss you...
and we're letting you go
