Family Death Poems
A death in the family leaves a void that cannot be filled. No one can ever take the place of this individual in the world. We should not try to comfort the family by saying that "it was his time anyway", or, "he was suffering". These may be words of comfort later. However, there must be time to mourn the fact that things will never be the same. One minute he was here and now he is gone.
Today I want to share a few of my favorites with you that cover the most complex topics of all: life and death. So without further ado, here are my top 10 favorite poems on life, death, and everything else in between:. Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room.
You never said I'm leaving You never said goodbye. You were gone before I knew it, And only God knew why. A million times I needed you, A million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place, That no one could ever fill.

When a friend or family member passes, sometimes the power of words can help you grieve — whether you follow a religion or not. Of course the Bible, the Quran, the Talmud, or whatever religious text you believe in can have comforting and honest words for what you are experiencing, but for those who might not belong to a church or other group, there are non-religious poems about losing a loved one that can help. These secular poems can assist you in your private hours as you grieve or they can be meaningful additions to a funeral or memorial service. In a way, if it is hard for you to find the words for celebrating your loved one's life or explain your complicated emotions during this struggle, poets can find the words for you. Whether you've lost your best friend, your mother, your child, or any other close person in your life, there is probably an appropriate poem or text that can encapsulate your emotions.
