Again funeral reading

By Published On: December 15, 2022Categories: Funeral Readings
This entry is part 36 of 51 in the series Funeral Readings

Here’s the next in my series of funeral readings you might like to consider for your loved one’s funeral or memorial ceremony. Some are sad, some are uplifting, some are comforting; there’s something for everyone here.

Readings are absolutely not a compulsory part of a funeral or memorial ceremony. Sometimes family members or friends desperately want to speak at their loved one’s funeral, but they haven’t got the wherewithal to write something themselves. Readings are a perfect stand-in: your emotions and feelings right there on the page ready for you to contribute.

Remember readings can be adapted – if your favourite reading is written for him, you can change it to her! If it’s written for Mum, you can change it to Dad or Grandma or Grandpa, whatever fits for you. Take out lines that don’t fit your circumstances. I just make sure to introduce such a reading as an adaptation.

Again, by Donna Ashworth

Donna Ashworth is one of my absolute favourite poets. She writes about love, life, loss, and everything in between. Several of her poems will appear in this series, there’s no doubt about it!

We’ll meet again, of that I’m sure
and though I should not rush
I know that time is running out
I wish the clocks to hush

For there is more I need to do
that you would hold so dear
and then I’ve lots to tell to you
when once again we’re near

I’ll tell you of the starlit nights
and know you saw them too
looking from a different place
but seeing the same view

I’ll make you laugh with tales of joy
adventures through and through
I’ll dip my toes in crystal seas
and bring that back to you

We’ll meet again of course we will
till then sweet time must bend
I have so much to do until
I see you once again.
