A Funeral Poem For A Grieving Heart
By Carole Galassi
Reading a funeral poem is a good idea when suffering a
loss recently. It provides words that you may not be
able to express on your own. Often reading will bring
soothing feelings of calmness. Sometimes, its better
than drinking a glass of wine or even taking medication!
But remember, it depends on you and what you need
emotionally. Even if you are taking or drinking that,
you can still read a poem to renew your mind that there
is hope after a death. Never give up hope, you can also
join a support group. At some of these groups, you will
get a whole list of poems to read. There will also be
other families and individuals who are in a similar
emotional state as you. You could even find friendships
there as you learn to share with others that walk on the
same journey as your in now.
When a family is in a bereavement state from losing a
loved one, its customary to view and read bereavement
poems or also called in loving memory poems. These are
poetry that helps people with the grieving process and
can lift their spirits to a happier place. Psychologist
use them often to assist in the therapy of those who are
mourning. It can be very therapeutic and soothing to
hear the rhythmic words of a poem. You can purchase
books on specific types of poetry or you can comb the
web for them. It's harder to search online because you
have to filter out many other types of poetry and it may
take you hours or days to get it done. Whereas a book
contains all of the preselected ones that will provide
comfort immediately. So although you have to pay for it,
its an instant read and there is no work on your part by
to immerse yourself in the book.
Memorial poems are a favorite for families to include.
There are many to choose from at that website and is
presented in an orderly format. There are brochures,
graduated fold programs, funeral cards, prayer cards,
memorial guest books, funeral bookmarks and large
tabloid style booklets. Creating them on your own is
simple and will give you some self satisfaction.
Remember you can provide a reading with poems,
scripture, and other written documents that would be
appropriate for a funeral or memorial service. It's not
as difficult as it may appear.
The Funeral Program Site has a wonderful selection of
free funeral poems and funeral resources. There is also
a beautiful selection of templates for funeral programs,
funeral prayer cards, thank you cards, memorial
bookmarks, funeral songs and booklets.
