Happy Funeral Poems. When are they appropriate?

Funeral Readings

Using Happy Funeral Poems following the death of a loved one.

So much is said about death, at least because of the pain and trail of emotions it leaves behind. Moving on is further easier said than done, it takes some time, and varies to every individual. With reference to the five stages of grieving, of denial, anger, guilt, sadness, and acceptance, the pain lessens over time, but the mark remains permanent in our lives.


It is not easy coping with the loss of a loved one, especially in the initial period. Even the simplest things will appear difficult. But we are still required to be brave, not to say that you should suppress your emotions, but we can try and do the things required of us as we learn to cope, like in the case of honouring the memories of the deceased loved one.

Honouring the deceased person is furthermore very helpful towards healing. It gives the fulfilment that we did everything to offer a dear one a perfect send-off which they deserve. Below are some of the ways through which you can honour your deceased loved one using the Happy Funeral Poems available at The Holy Bookshop.

As a dedication to the deceased dear one.

We can still love our dear ones in death and show gestures through things like dedicating them songs, lighting candles, observing moments of silence as a sign of respect and dedicating them poems,  happy funeral poems for that matter. This will bring a whole new twist of celebrating how they impacted our lives.

In obituaries and death notices.

Happy funeral poems can be used together with details of the deceased to make public the passing on of a dear one in a stylish way. On top of communicating our intended announcement, people will find something more to ponder over with reference to the death of a dear one.

However, take note of the difference between obituaries and death notices- obituaries are free, and you can comfortably pick on either the short happy funeral poems or the long happy funeral poems, but you will have to go by the dates availed by the newspaper company. Death notices are paid for based on the space and words used, which might make one consider between long happy funeral poems and short happy funeral poems, to avoid later inconveniences.
In funeral programs.

Happy funeral poems can be inserted in a funeral program, of which you can use more than one. This helps to communicate in advance to the audience of mourners, the message you wish for them to get pertaining to the deceased dear one.

During funeral services and memorial services.

Short happy funeral poems can be very ideal for ensuring the participation of children in a funeral service. They can be easily mastered and will take a short while to go through before the child gives in to tension, pressure or emotions.

Otherwise, both long and short happy funeral poems can be used in the same capacity during a memorial or funeral service to honour the deceased and comfort the mourners. There is also the option of using more than one poem and ensuring fair participation by having different relations to the deceased reading each of the poems.

On headstones and gravestones.

Just another special way of using happy funeral poems in a permanent manner, the poems will be there forever, for everyone who visits the deceased to read.
