When I Lost You funeral reading

This entry is part 22 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.

When I Lost You, author unknown

I wish I could see you one more time,
Come walking through the door,
But I know that is impossible
I will hear your voice no more

I know you can feel my tears
And you don’t want me to cry.
Yet my heart is broken because
I can’t understand why someone so precious had to die.

I pray that God will give me strength
And somehow get me through
As I struggle with the heartache
That came when I lost you.
