My Loving Grandmother funeral reading

This entry is part 14 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.

My Loving Grandmother, by Nivedeeta Pereira

When I had no shoulder to lean on,
and my eyes were filled with tears.
I had my Nana to count on,
to drive away my fears.

Despite all the wrong I’d done,
when the light I couldn’t see,
Nana was my shining sun,
who gently consoled me.

She always encouraged and inspired me,
to follow my every dream,
she’d tell me that I was not alone,
cause she was my team.

She’d tell everyone about me,
what I was doing, when and how,
she preserved everything I ever gave her,
from the time I was little till now.

Without you Nana I am so lost,
my tears just won’t dry,
but I believe you’re one of God’s angels,
you spread your wings and fly.

We are sure you are around us,
in everything we do,
you’re one of God’s angels we do trust,
we can see all our wishes come true.

Dear Nana we really miss you,
and wish with us you’d always be,
but since God wants you too,
I’ll keep your memories alive in me.
