It is a great honour to be asked to write funeral poems and personalised readings to be used as eulogies.
When you are asked to read at a funeral, it needs to be something personal that is a fitting tribute to the person you have lost. Sometimes, they themselves might have suggested a favourite poem or piece of text to read. But on those occasions where there aren’t any clues to go by, it can be incredibly comforting to sit down and take the time to remember all the reasons why they were so special to you.
Your custom funeral poem can contain a potted history of their life and the highlights of their personality or career, and of course, all the times you spent together. It is nice to talk about the elements that you will particularly miss – perhaps their winning smile, or the cakes they used to bake, or that they were the person you used to turn to for advice.
Poems for funerals don’t have to be full of heartache – they can just as well be a celebration of a life.
Funerals can be heavy days. I want to help you eliminate the extra stress at this difficult time and with over ten years of experience in writing personalised poems for all occasions, I guarantee to treat your request with the same care and devotion that I did when I was writing for my own dearly-departed family members.
The personalised poems I write can be as long or as short as you like, taking into account the amount of detail that you would like to include and also who will actually be reading it on the day.
Having written funeral poems for my own family, as well as for many of my personalised poetry customers worldwide, I understand that sometimes you can feel scared or unprepared to get up and speak at a time when all your emotions are running high.
