We Thought of You With Love Today funeral reading

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

We Thought of You With Love Today, by Rose M De Leon

This one also works with changing the “we” to “I”.

We thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday
and days before that too.

We think of you in silence
we often speak your name.
All we have now are memories
and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake
with which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping
we have you in our hearts.

A thousand times we’ve wanted you.
A thousand times we’ve cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life we loved you dearly
in death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place
no one can ever fill.

It broke our hearts to lose you
but you didn’t go alone.
For a part of us went with you
the day God took you home.
