Funeral Poem for Mum – Anonymous

Read by Marc Lemezma – Funeral Celebrant



This is a lovely poem that a client has recently chosen to to read at a funeral, dedicated to their late mother. I can’t trace the author, so if you do know who it is – let me know 🙂

I would say this is probably more likely to be read by a daughter, I have chosen to add it to my collection today on Mother Day!

The beautiful nurse featured in the opening is my late Mother, Joan.

I hope you enjoy.

You were someone I could talk to;
That no one can replace.
You were someone I could laugh with;
‘Til tears ran down my face.
You were someone I could turn to;
When I needed a helping hand;
You were someone I could count on;
To advise and understand.
You were someone I thought more of;
As each year came to an end.
You were my dearest mother;
And also my dearest friend.
Thank you for the memories;
That are yours and mine alone;
For they recall so many special moments;
That you and I have known.
