Once a Day funeral reading

By Published On: March 15, 2023Categories: Funeral Readings
This entry is part 39 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.

Once a Day, by Donna Ashworth

Another beautiful poem by Donna Ashworth

Don’t miss me more than once a day
for life is moving fast
don’t wish all of your time away
dreaming of the past.

Don’t waste the moment looking at
the things I left behind me
I’m not there anymore my love
your heart is where you’ll find me.

Don’t dread to say my name sweet one
don’t fear the wrath of sadness
just take the love you had for me
and turn it into gladness.

Some days your anger will rush out
your tears will find their way
to me, wherever I am then
I’ll soothe them all away.

When I am gone don’t miss me more
than once or twice a day
there’s so much life to live my love
I’m with you all the way.
