Feel No Guilt in Laughter funeral reading

By Published On: November 15, 2021Categories: Funeral Readings
This entry is part 23 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.

Feel No Guilt in Laughter, by Work in Progress

Feel no guilt in laughter
He’d know how much you care
Feel no sorrow in a smile
That he is not here to share

You cannot grieve forever
He would not want you to
He’d hope that you could carry on
The way you always do

So, talk about the good times
And the way you showed you cared
The days you spent together
All the happiness you shared

Let memories surround you
A word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture
A time, an hour, a day

That brings him back as clearly
As though he were still here
And fills you with the feeling that
He is always near

So, talk about the good times
And the way you showed you cared
The days you spent together
All the happiness you shared

And if you keep those moments
You’ll never be apart
And he will live forever
Locked safely within your heart

So, talk about the good times
And the way you showed you cared
The days you spent together
All the happiness you shared

So, talk about the good times
And the way you showed you cared
The days you spent together
All the happiness you shared

Feel no guilt in laughter
He’d know how much you care
Feel no sorrow in a smile
That he is not here to share
