Inside Our Dreams funeral reading

By Published On: May 15, 2020Categories: Funeral Readings
This entry is part 5 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. I just make sure to introduce such a reading as an adaptation.

Inside Our Dreams, by Jeanne Willis

Here’s a tiny poem that might just feel like enough.

Where do people go to when they die?
Somewhere down below or in the sky?
I can’t be sure, but it seems
They simply set up home inside our dreams.
