Funeral Poems

Posted in Funerals & Memorials


Funeral poems are often used during memorial services and funerals as a way to ease the pain caused by mourning the loss of a loved one who has passed. Funeral poems are used to depict the feelings of those left behind in a way that can be consoling and comforting during times of heartache and sorrow. Poetry is often used due to its ability to describe feelings and accurately capture heartbreak that could not otherwise be described.

Funeral poems may be used as part of the eulogy, may be printed on funeral programs, or may be used on prayer cards or other keepsake memorobilia to memorialize the deceased. Often times, guests will find poems stated on memorial gifts such as artwork, frames, or plaques and they provide these to the family and friends of the deceased. These poems are of significant help to those who have been left behind and who seek comfort in words.

When making funeral arrangements, finding a poem that is fitting is often a major part of the process. Sometimes family or friends of the deceased will decide to write a poem that more accurately depicts their feelings or the life of the person that has passed on. This can be difficult to do at such an emotional time, so many look to numerous resources available online. You can most certainly find something that is fitting online or in poetry books at your local library.

Additionally, many funeral readings and funeral poems can be found in the form of music. Perhaps a song or lyrics have special meaning to the deceased. Perhaps a special song or lyrics remind you or the family of the deceased and how they chose to live their life, or how they passed on from this life. Sometimes funeral music is actually played, and other times, the lyrics are simply read by someone conducting the eulogy or by another family member or friend of the deceased. There really is no right or wrong way to do this, just as long as you are sensitive to your audience and true to your feelings.
