Why Funeral Verses Or Poems Are
By Thomas Alan Lampsen
If you are planning a funeral or memorial service, you
may be considering using poetry as part of the
ceremonies. Poems have long played key roles in funeral
services, and with good reasons. Well-chosen funeral
verses or poems can communicate emotional truths in a
unique and powerful way.
Planning funeral services and dealing with the passing
of a loved one can be a difficult time, obviously. The
emotionally charged nature of these moments is
intensified by the fact that you are probably under
tight time constraints as you plan the memorial. Please
understand that you can and will get through this. I
extend my sincere condolences for your loss.
Poetry, they say, comes from the soul of the poet and
communicates with the souls of readers and listeners.
Poems are an almost transcendent art form in that
regard. Tremendous poets create verses that can strip
away the layers of interference we so often find in our
discussions. Good poetry is as close to an unfiltered
emotional expression as we can get.
This makes the use of funeral verses or poems attractive
to anyone organizing or planning a memorial service.
These important occasions deserve the best possible
presentation and those involved crave an opportunity to
express their feelings in a real way.
There is no single perfect funeral poem. Every
individual is different. Every life is unique. A poem
that perfectly captures the sentiments of one person may
not resonate with another. Fortunately, we seem to have
an almost innate ability to find the right words in
emotionally trying times and there is a great deal of
funeral verse available for consideration.
If you are trying to find the right poems to read at a
funeral, take a few moments to look at some different
examples of popular funeral poems. You may not find the
perfect words right away, but immersing yourself in some
famed verses may give you a sense of direction and lead
you to the perfect choice.
