I Never Left You funeral reading

By Published On: May 15, 2021Categories: Funeral Readings
This entry is part 17 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.

I Never Left You, by John F Connor

I watch you every day
I am always very near
I know deep in your heart
You realise I am here

I watch you while you sleep
In your bed at home
Whenever you speak to me
When you are on your own

You cannot understand
The reason why I have gone
But I will never leave you
I am there to keep you strong

Talk to me I hear you
Though you may not see
We share an unbroken bond
That will always be

Death won’t keep us apart
For our love is forever
Just remember me in your heart|
And one day we will be together

Live your life and live it full
Don’t waste a single day
Remember I am always with you
Every step of the day
