Remembrance Poems For Funerals-Where To Find Them?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Do you need a remembrance poem to read at a funeral or memorial? Do you need to write one but you are not a writer nor poet? There are lots of ways to pick out or create the perfect piece to read and help people find comfort in the time of need through strong words and with some digging around it is easy to achieve.

At some point or another, we will all be affected by the loss of somebody in our lives whether it is a friend, family member or loved one, even a pet, and we will be called to either read and deliver a eulogy or just simply add our own words with a remembrance poem.

Remembrance poems can be very important, especially to the person who is about to deliver and read the piece as it can be a way of letting go emotionally, a way of saying goodbye or a way to tell a story about the deceased with kind words, beautiful images, humor and in which ever way the poem has been chosen whether personally written or selected it is a great way of paying homage to the deceased.

Writing Your Own poem

I am by nature and practice a writer of poetry and plays so it it easy for me to write a poem. But, as I have even found out when asked to write a piece for the loss of a loved one, it is not as easy, takes courage and discipline and great emotional withhold, but it can produce a great piece of writing.

For most though are not writers so it is much more difficult to write anything at all. A way to do this is to pick a remembrance poem you like and copy the form, not the poem, but the way it is written and add in your own words, thinking about how the person lived, laughed and how they touched others around them.

Another way is to use the community I am apart of called Writing.com and learn how to write a small quick poem, it is free and it is also possible to ask someone to write a poem for you.

Sourcing The Poem

There are tons of remembrance poems on the Internet, you just need to find one you would like to read. With so many poets having websites, dropping them a mail in their contact and asking politely if they could write a piece for you may also be a way to go.

There are also e-books you can download and one I recommend is Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep which is popular and has over 250 poems, quotations, eulogies, non religious and spiritual pieces, so much for every taste and choosing from this Ebook should be easy and helpful to those unable to write or short on time.

In choosing your poem make sure it does the deceased some justice, really suits the way they lived and how they lived, makes you feel proud and comfortable and echoes through the room with pride.
