Reading for funeral service

Funeral reading “When I must” leave you

When I must leave you
for a little while.
Please do not grieve
and shed wild tears,
and hug your sorrow
to you through the years.
But start out bravely
with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name
live on and do all things the same.
Feed not your loneliness
on empty days,
but fill each waking hour in
useful ways,
reach out your hand
in comfort and in cheer
and I in turn will comfort you
and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
for I am waiting
for you in the sky.


Helen Steiner Rice

Popular   funeral  reading

Perhaps  if we could see
The splendour of the land
To which our loved are called from
You and me
We’d understand

Perhaps if we could hear
The welcome they receive
From old familiar voices - all so dear
We would not grieve

Perhaps  if we could know
The reason why they went
We’d smile - and wipe away
the tears that flow
And wait content

When tomorrow  starts without  me

When tomorrow  starts without  me and I am not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes are filled with tears for me,
I wish so much you wouldn’t  cry, the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you loved me, as much as I loved you,
And each time you think of me I know you’ll miss me too,
But, when tomorrow  starts without  me, please try to understand ,
That angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.

When tomorrow  starts without  me, don’t think we’re far apart ,
For every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart.
