Funeral Poetry – Laugh With Me Once More

Written and Read by Marc Lemezma – Funeral Celebrant in Maidstone

Poetry has a way of connecting to our inner thoughts in ways that might not seem evident at first glance. I wrote this short poem for a recent funeral service. It speaks of the dreams and aspirations the couple shared, and how those plans for the future can still bring hope beyond the time we face alone.

Have you a particular poem that speaks to you, perhaps one you’d like for your own funeral; or even one you’ve heard at a service for your loved one?
Let me know, and I may be able to record it with an accompanying video such as this.

If you care to, climb with me
High up on the hill
I’ll take you to that place where we once stood
And wait for you until

Then if you care to, follow me
Along the busy road
I’ll walk you through those memories
And we’ll pause where the river flowed

Now if you care to, hold my hand
As we watch along the shore
Let’s drift together, to the heart of the sea
And you can laugh with me once more

Poetry is written to be shared, read and heard.
