Funeral Poem – The Star by Catherine Turner
Read by Marc – Funeral Celebrant in Maidstone
This simple poem explores the acceptance of loss and the birth of new hope.
We can acknowledge our loved one’s presence equally in what was, what is and what will be.
What poems inspire you, let me know and I may be able to record a version for you to enjoy.
A light went out on Earth for me
The day we said goodbye
And on that day a star was born,
The brightest in the sky
Reaching through the darkness
With its rays of purest white
Lighting up the Heavens
As it once lit up my life
With beams of love to heal
The broken heart you left behind
Where always in my memory
Your lovely star will shine
