At a time when we might find it hard to talk about our grief, poetry can be a powerful tool to help us reflect on the lives and legacies of those we have lost. Reading a poem at a funeral can help you impart meaning and sentiment, especially if you’re struggling to find the words yourself.
If you’re speaking at a funeral, a poetry reading can form some or all of your eulogy. Some of the most beautiful poems for funerals may have a particular verse or line that resonates with you and the loss you’ve experienced.
We’ve collected a few remembrance poems that may help you say goodbye.
