Funeral Memorial Poem – Feel No Guilt In Laughter – Anon
Read by Marc Lemezma Funeral Celebrant – Maidstone Kent
Life goes on after death, and those of us left have to eat, drink, love, laugh, work and cry. So we should not feel guilty about the normal human feelings and emotions we experience as we go about our lives. This poem gives us that message, clearly and simply.
Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.
He’d hope that you could carry on the way you always do.
So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,
The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,
That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here,
And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.
For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
And he will live forever locked safely within your heart.
