April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 175

A poem can be a great option for a funeral; they usually do a better job of expressing how you feel than you could do on your own. Many people will use a poem instead of a eulogy while others will use both. However you choose to use the poem it is important to make sure that you pick one that is appropriate. This can be a bit of a challenge since there are literally millions of poems that you can choose from.

The easiest way to choose a poem for a funeral is to let the person who is being mourned do it. This will obviously have to be done ahead of time so it will take some preplanning. That being said most people will let their loved ones know what kind of funeral they would like to have; this would be a good time to discuss the use of a poem. If they have a favorite poem that they would like to have read at the funeral this will make the selection easy.

If the person to be mourned does not express a preference for a particular poem it will be up to those close to him to choose one. If you have a favorite poem that would be appropriate then this should be fairly simple. The important thing is to make sure that the poem that you choose adequately expresses how you feel. Just because you really like a poem does not mean that it is necessarily a good choice for a funeral.

If you already have a poem in mind for use at a loved one's funeral then you are lucky, most people will have to do a lot more work to find a poem that they can use. Fortunately there are a lot of tools that can help you. The most obvious is a book, there are actually books that are made up of nothing but poems that you can use at a funeral, there are also websites that do the same thing. Taking some time to look through a few of these should give you plenty of poems that you can use.

If you are truly ambitious one option that you do have is to write your own poem. Obviously a lot of people will not have the necessary skills to do this. However if you do you will be able to create a poem that is much more personal than anything that you could get out of a book. That being said do not feel any pressure to write your own poem if you are not comfortable with it, there are lots of good ones that you can choose from.

The best poems for funerals are the ones that truly express how you feel. There are lots of poems for funerals that you can choose from to make sure that you pick the right one.
