Words of sadness and loss, comfort and consolation
Summoning the words to express our feelings of loss for a loved one in the days following a death can feel almost impossible. And often the choice of readings available can seem daunting.
Poems and Readings for Funerals is a carefully curated collection of the very wisest words about death by some of the world’s greatest poets, thinkers, playwrights and novelists.
Featuring beautifully and thoughtfully written poems, prose extracts and prayers, these readings have been chosen to move and console, sympathize and relieve – to bring everyone attending a funeral or memorial closer together.
