Tips For Those Seeking Poems For A
By Thomas Alan Lampsen
Finding the right poem for a memorial service can seem
like a daunting task. You want to capture the right
sentiments and tone to properly memorialize a loved one.
Here are some tips for those seeking poems for a funeral
Before we look at three recommendations for finding the
perfect funeral poem, please allow me to express my
condolences. If you are reading this article, you have
probably lost someone close to you, and I hope you find
this information helpful.
First, accept the fact that you are under tight time
constraints. In our culture, we tend to go through the
memorial process very quickly. You will not have hours
and hours to scan library shelves or to read a series of
large volumes of poetry to find the right verse. You
will need to find something appropriate, meaningful and
evocative rather quickly.
That can seem stressful, but it should not overwhelm
you. We have a very natural human inclination to uncover
the right words and sentiments at times like these. You
will do fine.
Second, realize that others have gone through this same
process. I do not say that only to offer you a sense of
comfort in belonging. It has a very pragmatic
implication. It means that others have discovered and
logged funeral poems that eloquently communicate the
complicated feelings we all experience during these
Take advantage of that commonality by reviewing the
recommendations of others. You may discover that they
have found wonderful verses that will help to complete
the services for your loved one. You may be surprised.
What seems so very difficult may actually become quite
natural. You may see a poem and immediately recognize it
as a perfect tribute.
If you are seeking poems for a funeral tribute, the
Internet is a tremendous resource. You can find
beautiful poetry and collections of appropriate verses
that will allow you to find the right words quicker than
you may have expected.
